The latest gaming news, Sunburned Games. Their Early Access game, The Great Whale Road will be making a full release on Linux, Mac and Windows PC. Hence the story driven #RPG and #turnbased #tactics plus historical fiction game will launch, March 30th.

The big gaming news, The Great Whale Road release will include the complete storyline for the Danes of Úlfarrsted. So this story, plus the seasonal events, side quests, resource management and tactical turn-based combat will be included. 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.

Story

Set in the Early Middle Ages, the game revives an ancient world through its digitally hand-drawn art, colourful characters, atmospheric soundtrack, and deeply researched lore.

  • Playable storyline for the Danes from Úlfarrsted, a village on a small North Sea island just off the coast from the Danish-Saxon borderland.
  • Chapter 1 and 2 of a story-driven campaign along the Danish, Saxon, Frisian and Frankish coast.
  • Character missions for your chosen warriors.
  • Four combat classes and associated warcry cards.
  • Land and sea combat environments.
  • Equip your characters with weapons and armour sets.
  • A dynamic event system which covers all areas of medieval life from farming to family feuds.
  • Mac and Linux versions.
  • Chapters 3 and 4 of the Danish story.
  • More character quests.
  • Playable storylines for other cultures: Franks and Frisians.
  • A smarter and harder AI.
  • Character progression and ship upgrades.
  • More content: characters, warcries, missions, rumours and events.

So going forward, Sunburned Games will release two storylines. Both based on two separate cultures: the Franks and the Frisians. Therefore 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. This also includes improvements to combat and resource management, adding new mechanics for deeper gameplay.

The Great Whale Road story driven RPG will launch on Steam for Linux, Mac and Windows PC. No word yet on a launch day discount. So here’s hoping.
