Sea shanties in Nantucket

by picaresque

Ahoy Sailors,

We are glad to announce that we signed a partnership with The Roaring Trowmen to add the most popular 19th century sea shanties in Nantucket. The Roaring Trowmen are an English group based in Bristol who share with us a passion for nautical folk stories and popular music.

Every sailor who got on board from the 17th until the first half of the 20th century had to learn and sing shanties. Their rhythm served mainly to synchronise repetitive movements and fight the boredom of the long periods of inactivity on the ships. Since then, sea shanties represent a big cultural phenomenon which inspires thousands of enthusiasts across the world to meet each other and sing all together.

Here’s a little preview of what you will experience in the game.

Sea shanties in Nantucket will alternate with music and the crew, depending on its morale, will sing a joyful shanty or a sad one.

What song you would like to see in Nantucket? Please write your favourite ones in the comments below.

In the following weeks we are going to announce the official track-list of the sea shanties included in the game. To be sure to not lose any news about Nantucket please subscribe on our Newsletter and follow us on Facebook, Twitter and Youtube.

P.S.: Nantucket is still in Beta and we are constantly adding new players to have more feedback. If you would like to get involved write us a mail at beta@picaresquestudio.com
