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.

SXSW Gamer's Voice Award nominee (2016), finalist for Best Adventure Game/RPG (Intel Level Up 2016), and selected for festivals and showcases internationally.

  • Branching Story: Play through multiple adventures, each designed to be completed in a single sitting.
  • Interactive World: Shape the narrative through interaction with characters and the world around them, set inside a draggable, interactive vignette.
  • Playful Aesthetic: Colorful art style with handcrafted animation, set to a whimsical original soundtrack inspired by the game's Scandinavian setting.
