The Great Whale Road is a medieval RPG with turn-based tactics, longships and axes. Players travel the whale road – an Anglo-Saxon name for the sea – to supply their home settlement.  Recruiting a crew and the occasional hero requires renown, which the player can earn in combat as well as by trading and exploring.

Mary Kenney, MFA student at NYU, works as a narrative designer and writer on this RPG by Sunburned Games. She joined the project in August 2016 and wrote main quests, side quests, and character profiles.

Available on PC, Mac, and Linux. Available in Early Access. Full release slated for March 2017.
