Picaresque Studios recently released a gameplay trailer for their upcoming role-playing game, Nantucket. Having spent a lot of my childhood in Cape Cod, I’m excited just to hear the idea of a game set in that area. The game’s trailer shows off its beautiful visual style reminiscent of art from the era. I can only hope that the game’s soundtrack is comprised of similar sea shanties to the one in the trailer.
It looks like Nantucket has a deep roleplaying system involving your crew and ship, with card based combat. Nantucket tells the story of Ishmael after the events of Moby Dick, as he hunts down the White Whale to redeem himself.
