Sunburned Games, an independent studio that creates games with rich historical settings, will release its first title, The Great Whale Road, out of Early Access on March 30th 2017.
In The Great Whale Road, story-driven RPG meets interactive historical fiction. Set in sixth-century medieval Europe, the game revives an ancient world through its digitally hand-drawn art, colourful characters, atmospheric soundtrack, and deeply researched lore.
The game’s release will include the complete storyline for the Danes of Úlfarrsted. This story, in addition to seasonal events, side quests, resource management, and tactical turn-based combat, is the result of two years of work, including eight months of Early Access community feedback. Sunburned Games thanks the community, their team, and their families.
Going forward, Sunburned Games will release two storylines based on two separate cultures: the Franks and the Frisians. Players can look forward to this additional narrative content, which will be added to the game in two free updates before the summer.
The March release finishes the Danish story and completes the core feature set of the game. It also includes improvements to combat and resource management, adding new mechanics for deeper gameplay.
The Great Whale Road launches on PC on March 30th 2017. It’s available right now via Steam Early Access – you can check it out on Steam through this link.
