Land ahoy! A first look at Nantucket.

By Mex

But more wonderful than the lore of old men and the lore of books is the secret lore of ocean.

H.P Lovecraft

Ahoy, Picaros!

We’ve been quite silent for the last few weeks (cough cough months) and I’m sorry about it, but we were super busy coding, testing, breaking, fixing and breaking again features. Don’t worry, we are alive and kicking hard.

The mist around Nantucket is getting thinner and now that the coast is on sight, we would like to start sharing the view with you all. If you still don’t know anything about Nantucket, I can tell you it’s a seafaring strategy game set after the events narrated by Herman Melville in his masterpiece, Moby Dick. Playing as Ishamel, the sole survivor of the Pequod’s disaster,  you will have to make your mark as a whaling ship’s captain in order to fulfill Ahab’s revenge on the White Whale. In December we released a teaser trailer (if you have missed it, you can find it here), showing some art and hinting about the story behind the game, but in the next weeks we are going to present you the key features, so that you can get super excited about it and start throwing money at your screen.

I’ll start sharing with you the first gameplay screenshot, it’s a work in progress, so things could change before the release of the game. Any feedback is more than welcome. Enjoy it and stay tuned for more updates!
