Burly Men at Sea is a game about a trio of large, bearded fishermen who step away from the ordinary to seek adventure from developers Brain&Brain. Set in the waters of early 20th-century Scandinavia, the game's story branches through a series of encounters with creatures from folklore. The player acts as storyteller and wayfinder, shaping the narrative around three ungainly heroes as they set sail for the unknown. Time Magazine recently called it "a whimsical romp worth taking" and noted, "it’s the artful interplay of visual minimalism, waggish writing and hilarious but also haunting sound effects generated by gorgeous a cappella voices."
Plied Sound had the pleasure of crafting the playful score and recently spoke with NPR/Respawn's Kate Remington about the process. Listen to the interview here.
