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

With gameplay halfway between a visual novel and a point-and-click adventure, Burly Men at Sea’s branching story carries its ungainly heroes into waters where lurk creatures from Scandinavian folklore and other misadventures. You play as storyteller and wayfinder, shaping a custom tale that begins again where it ends.

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

“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

“We're totally charmed by this eclectic adventure.” — App Store Editor's Notes

Featured in the BBC show Sound of Gaming, Plied Sound's composition is masterfully whimsical, with a sound that recalls folk music of the far north.
