The Great Whale Road is a story-driven RPG with turn-based tactics and cards in which you lead an early medieval clan in its fight against nature and foes through a historical game world. Set in the seventh century AD you travel the North Sea – the whale road – to prepare for winter. Fight, trade and discover the story of your village and its heroes. Are you worthy to lead them to renown and riches?
Gameplay is split into two seasons. Winter to manage and plan for the year ahead and summer when you sail the whale road and visit other towns and villages. You and your warband have to fulfill a mission each year, while ensuring that you have sufficient food to feed everyone through the long months of winter.
Digitally hand-drawn locations are connected by an atmospheric side-scrolling sailing mode. Grid based tactical combat means Valhalla can be just a warcry card away.
