Sunless Skies is a gothic horror game made by the same people who created Sunless Seas. This time, you get to explore the celestial ocean that is filled with strange adventures (where you get to murder a sun), all kinds of unexplainable horrors, and incredibly immersive storytelling. The game was developed and released by Failbetter Games on January 31st, 2019.
Cosmic lightning, violent storms, space waste-winds, all of this is standing between you and your engine. That's why you should respect and also maintain your engine. You can even upgrade it from time to time, and get some weapons and fancy equipment for your ship. Many hostile Heavens lurk around in the vast emptiness of space, and when you can't fight, you should run. After all, you're the captain of your locomotive. It's your job to deliver goods (be it souls or crates of time), explore many distant regions, and try not to get killed by Lovecraftian entities. Sunless Skies is set in the fictional Fallen London Universe which features some twisted and dark lore that inspires fear and amazement at the same time.
Many different factions and beasts are out there, and each of them has their own purpose to fulfill and attacks to use against you. Take care of your crew while you're dealing with the insanity that your captain is slipping into. Do you dare go where no man has gone before and peer into the sunken abyss? Recruit many officers for your goal, be it drivers, princesses, devils, and much more. When one captain dies, another one fills his place, but each of them leaves a mark on the world for their descendants.
Explore the fantastic High Wilderness, a haunting vision of space that man did not expect when reaching for the stars. Sunless Skies offers multiple stories that intertwine with one another and were inspired by brilliant minds such as Lovecraft, Jules Verne, HG Wells, and CS Lewis. See detailed and luscious hand-drawn 2D art, and uncover dark and terrible secrets that the universe holds.
