Nantucket is out now, with a 10% launch discount!
A brand new trailer to announce our release date.
Release date: January 18th, 2018
Nantucket is a seafaring strategy game set in the golden age of American whaling. Explore the seven seas, manage your ship and crew, hunt whales and immerse in a living world, dealing with hundreds of unique events.
Unveil Ishmael's destiny and chase after MobyDick to dissolve Ahab's curse.

  • Explore the seven seas: set sail around the world, increase your prestige by looking for whales and new adventures.
  • Be the captain you want to be: develop your character in a role playing game fashion, increasing your stats and developing your skills.
  • Manage your crew: hire and manage your bunch of old sea dogs, give them tasks on your ship and share your loot with them
  • Develop your ship: unlock new technologies to improve your ship and build new compartments to expand your possibilities
  • Live the Golden Age of whaling: experience 1000+ unique events and face the result of your choices
  • Hunt whales: discover new whaling areas, lower your whaleboats and fight whales for precious blubber
  • Defend your ship: protect your crew from boarding pirates and be ready to face hostile natives
  • Chase the white Devil: complete quests to unveil the secrets behind MobyDick and dissolve Ahab's curse

  • Nantucket is currently in a pre-alpha stage. This means that images and videos on this page may not be representative of the final product, since new features will be added in the next weeks as well as graphical improvements.
  • Our plan has changed and now it's to release the game somewhere around 2017. In the next few months we will be able to narrow this time window to a specific date.
  • We are currently working on the PC version of the game, but we do not exclude to add a Linux and/or Mac version later. Let us know if you have interest in them. We will do our best to satisfy as many people as possible.
  • The game will be released just in English. Additional languages could be added later. We are already considering an Italian and Spanish version, since they are our native languages.

Feel free to share your thoughts about the game on this page. We will evaluate all your feedbacks in order to deliver the very best game we can to you.

Nantucket is a work of fiction that portrays the Golden Age of American Whaling and its protagonists. It's a project born around our passion for history and great literature, such as Herman Melville's MobyDick (sorry from writing the title this way, but Moby♥♥♥♥♥♥looks really weird).
Picaresque Studio does not support illegal whaling and invites you all to be aware about the endangered species problems caused by industrial whaling. Check the the International Whaling Commission's website for more information
