A folktale about a trio of large, bearded fishermen who step away from the ordinary to seek adventure.

Set in the waters of early 20th-century Scandinavia, the game's story branches through a series of encounters with creatures from folklore. You play as storyteller and wayfinder, shaping the narrative around three ungainly heroes as they set sail for the unknown.

Burly Men at Sea is developed by nomadic husband-and-wife team Brain&Brain.

“5/5. Artful interplay of visual minimalism, waggish writing and hilarious but also haunting sound effects generated by gorgeous a cappella voices.” — TIME

“It’s a tiny-but-then-not-tiny, lovely thing with so much character and a wonderful sense of adventure.” — Rock, Paper, Shotgun

“9/10. Burly Men at Sea demands to be played.” — Pocket Gamer
