    "The Great Whale Road is where story-driven RPG and turn-based tactics meet interactive historical fiction. Set in the Early Middle Ages, the game revives an ancient world through its digitally hand-drawn art, colourful characters, atmospheric soundtrack, and deeply researched lore."

    Blah blah blah, any of you assholes played it? i have it on my wishlist for some reason, seems pretty codexian.

    IIRC the consensus is that it seemed p. shallow. Also shoehorning LGBT themes as if there was historical context for it.
