  • SUNLESS SKIES

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.

You may have seen that we Kickstarted a new game in the same universe as Sunless Skies in February this year. Now we're pleased to announce that it has a shiny Steam page! {STEAM_CLAN_IMAGE}/28053189/fa49eacaf876d4fa79f8be1ea83b9a204a18f392.png Mask of the Rose is a romantic visual novel, so somewhat different to Sunless Skies and Sunless Sea. However, it's set in the same universe, and brings all of our expertise in writing deep, surprising, meaningful stories, this time on a more personal leve...

Update We’ve been unable to fully resolve the outstanding bug with the locomotive headlight which is seen on some OSX devices. However there is a workaround; using -force-glcore or alternatively -force-opengl as a launch command will resolve the issue. Full steps can be found in our troubleshooting guide. Tech bug fixes The screen will no longer shake when docking, though the locomotive itself may judder slightly. After erupting from host locomotives, Guest tentacles will continue to writhe. Dre...

The need to collect a passenger for the New Street Line before going to the drop off point should now be signalled a little more clearly. Searching Elsewhere a...

The micro stuttering seen on locomotives, agents and projectiles has been resolved - this has introduced a stutter when docking, we're looking into it.
