Beneath the waves, the story of a young whale’s astonishing voyage across uncharted waters is about to begin. But this is not Earth’s ocean, nor is this an Earth whale. This is the saga of “South Scrimshaw,” a game-documentary hybrid created by the brilliant Nathan O. Marsh.

In this video, we’ll follow the young whale’s odyssey through the alien ocean depths, and discover a tale of loss, and deep connections. And you can play the full game yourself and support the artist using the links below.
