#SunburnedGames, the independent studio that creates games with rich historical settings. Hence the big gaming news is the full release of their #firsttitle, The Great Whale Road, launching out of Early Access on March 30, 2017.

In The Great Whale Road, story-driven RPG meets interactive #historicalfiction. Set in sixth-century medieval Europe, the game revives an ancient world through its digitally hand-drawn art. Complete with colourful characters, atmospheric soundtrack, and deeply researched lore.

The Great Whale Road 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. Hence 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.In addition to English The Great Whale Road will be available in German, Spanish, and we hope Italian as well. The French version is a bit behind schedule, but we think we will have it ready for the first free update – fittingly the Frankish storyline in early May. We will post a few more updates over the coming week.

So what’s the significant gaming news here?
Going forward, Sunburned Games will release two storylines based on two separate cultures: the Franks and the Frisians. Linux 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 will be launching on Steam for Linux, Mac and Windows PC on March 30th.
