Three bearded fishermen are itching for adventures that take them far away from home in Burly Men at Sea, and it's up to you to guide them along the way, meeting creatures from Scandinavian folklore, finding beautiful lands created in the game's playful art style, and creating a new tale every single time you play.
Burly Men at Sea offers you a branching storyline, letting you tell a whole new tale about the trio whenever you feel like going out for adventures with the crew. How you interact with each of the game's characters and worlds will shape that narrative, giving you many different ways to tell your story. These adventures won't take up much of your time, though, offering high seas fun for an hour or so per playthrough.
The game's art style brings a children's book to mind, and brings with it that sense of wonder that comes from watching these three cheerful men head out into uncharted waters. Being able to guide that story makes it a pure delight, offering adults their own charming bedtime stories of discovery and Scandinavian myth.
Burly Men at Sea is available for $9.99 on Steam, Itch.io, and Humble Bundle, or $4.99 on iOS and Android. For more information on the game and developer Brain&Brain, you can head to the game's site, the developer's site, or follow them on YouTube and Twitter.
