Basqueing in the Sun

3 vs 1 Local multi-player battle arena. Ships against the Mighty Space Whale! While nature is absolute, man bends nature to his will. No people do this better than the majestic sailor, who channels the elements to his betterment. In 4103, sailors pilot their spacecraft across the stars with a multitude of other interstellar life. You, along with your competitors, are space-whalers, who have traveled to the local sun in search of fresh catch. All ships are piloted by riding solar winds by traditional sailing techniques. Sailors control the slack of the line, the tilt of the rudder, and the fire of their harpoons. But if you've ever sailed before, you know your two hands can only handle two of these tasks at once! Not to mention having to spar with the Mighty Space Whale, who is looking to survive and drag as many whalers as possible to their watery graves below the waves.
