Game Release: Sunless Sea (PC)

If you always thought roguelikes were too much about dungeon-crawling, then Sunless Sea might just be the antidote for that sentiment.


Like FTL, it’s all about micromanagement and exploration in Sunless Sea from Failbetter Games. The task is to roam the seas with a vessel, manage the crew and cargo, while dealing with often uncanny incidents in the creepy waters.


It’s very noticeable that with each event, poetic descriptions appear on the screen, just as if one is reading an H.P. Lovecraft book. The atmosphere of darkness surrounding the vessel is also tangible with some great light effects. It’s also played in real-time, as naval fight scenes show. But it’s even more interesting that the crew has stories of their own to tell, and depending on decisions one makes through the course of the journey, the outcome can be very different. It’s certainly a unique-looking and spine-tingling game that deserves your (and my review) attention.


The PC game has been released on Steam and GOG respectively with a 10% discount for one week. So if you want to find out how this exciting experience plays like, check out the individual websites.
