Description

Set a few years after the story of Herman Melville's Moby Dick, Nantucket promises to thrust players into the tortured life of Ishmael as he comes to grips with being the sole survivor of both the wreck of the Pequod and the wrath of Ahab. Players - as Ishmael - will scrape what they can from the ocean by exploring, discovering, and harvesting marine life in a 19th century fashion. "Our goal with Nantucket is to create a compelling seafaring strategy game set in the golden age of American whaling" says Designer and Co-Founder Marco Mantoan, "and Moby Dick embodies the epic and savage elements of that time."
