Failbetter Games have announced that their recent Kickstarter success, Sunless Sea is now up for a Steam Greenlight campaign. Sunless Sea is a game of exploration, survival and loneliness set in the award-winning Victorian Gothic universe of Fallen London. Sail your customised steamship through the darkest seas with a gruesome overtone, as you wonder what beastly demise may beset your crew, either man or beast. Oh and did I tell you, you can even eat your own crew? Lovely!
A huge open map that changes every time you play
A deep, compelling world packed with secrets and stories
Beautiful, hand drawn 2D art
Light and dark. Stray too far from the gas-lamps of civilisation and your crew will grow fearful and eventually lose their sanity. But there is treasure out there in the darkness…
Leave a legacy! When you die (and you will) your next captain may choose to inherit a skill, a chart of discovered islands or a beloved officer.
Upgrade your steamship with powerful engines, flensing cannons, and pneumatic torpedo guns. Or just buy a bigger, better ship.
Hire unique officers like the Haunted Doctor and the Irrepressible Cannoneer. Each has a story to tell, if you can draw it out of them.
Choose from a menagerie of ship’s mascots: the Comatose Ferret, the Wretched Mog, the Elegiac Cockatoo, and more!
Trade silk and souls, mushroom wine and hallucinogenic honey. Seek out the most profitable hidden trade lanes.
Lose your mind
Eat your crew
