Looking for something a little different to check out this weekend, now that the work (or school) week is over? Burly Men at Sea might be exactly what you’re looking for. This unique storybook-esque game is the brain child of Brain&Brain (pun intended), a husband-and-wife developer team, and it’s now out on Android.
Based on a 20th century Scandinavian folklore, the game’s storyline revolves around the three brothers named Brave Beard, Hasty Beard and Steady Beard who set out to find a map in a bottle, only to end up awash on a shore. What makes the game standout is its storybook structure. Each playthrough is designed for completion in a single sitting, but once that story is over, there are plenty of new playthroughs waiting for you the next time you start up the game.
Burly Men at Sea draws its strength from a lot of factors such as its minimalist design, outlandish characterization and some elements of surprise. The simplicity in particular is, perhaps, what will appeal most to the gamers. Plus, you get to relax with its atmospheric soundtrack and pastel colors on the screen.
Burly Men at Sea is available for download from the Play Store now for $4.99. What do you think of this one? Anyone try it out yet? Let us know your thoughts in the comments below.
