Sunless Skies, a Lovecraftian adventure game with excellent storytelling and characters, is getting a free story expansion next month!
Sunless Skies a 2D RPG that’s all about exploration and trauma. It creates an extremely compelling world filled with wonderfully terrifying stories and quirky characters. The game’s mechanics aren’t as impressive, but the developers are constantly working on fixing and polishing everything that needs upgrades. Now we’re getting another major update, more akin to a mini-expansion, called the Vagabond update.
It comes with a brand new officer, Amiable Vagabond, the skylarks, and many new stories to uncover. This new officer will lead you to uncharted parts of the sky. The skylarks, another new addition of this update, are a special kind of community. Devoted to their search for the Sugarspun Garden, they are tattered wanderers that constantly rove the heavens in their pursuit for a place that is too good to be true.
Sunless Skies is also getting more great Horrors and Wonders of the Skies, exhilarating new agents and discoveries that are just waiting for you, and something new that lies in the mists of Worlebury. The Vagabond update is arriving on June 12th, so a month from now.
After it arrives, the devs will shift their focus on things like character progression, with a focus on mid and late game parts, improving the UI, survival and journey times.
