Full Greenlight campaign!
Dev Diary: 2D, or not 2D?
Explore a vast underground ocean in your customised steamship! A PC & Mac game in glorious 2D from the creators of Fallen London.

Trade in silk and souls. Battle sea-beasts, pirates, sentient coral. Explore a map that changes every time you play. Discover islands. Establish staging posts. Win fame as a navigator. Learn the stories of your crew: assist them, seduce them or consume them as you see fit.

Sunless Sea is a game of exploration, survival and loneliness set in the award-winning Victorian Gothic universe of Fallen London. Take the helm of your customised steamship and set sail for the unknown! Light and darkness are your greatest allies, but a stout set of cannon and a gunnery officer with a grudge will come in useful too.

And Sunless Sea is a game of stories; the dark pasts of your crew, the hidden coves of the soul-smugglers, the tentacled nemesis that you chased from Hunter’s Keep to the shores of the Elder Continent.

Your choices will determine the events of every game. Will you return to Fallen London with a hold full of loot or succumb to madness and cannibalism on the black waters? Will you free the colonies of the Carnelian Coast, or keep them in the Empire’s grip? Will you betray your father’s legacy or reclaim it?

You are the captain. It’s your call.

Our influences! ... FTL; Don't Starve; Strange Adventures in Infinite Space; Sid Meier’s Pirates; Taipan; Elite; roguelikes; the Crimson Permanent Assurance; the Irish immrama myths.

We're on Kickstarter! Head over to to find out more and help us build this dark and beautiful beast. Or find more about the world of Fallen London here:

I had a dream last night. A friend and I were in a car travelling through an expanse of fog. Painted on the ground was an arrow, along with one word. "NORTH."

I'll take it as an omen. Will buy.

No no! Very much live - you can see updates on our Kickstarter page. We'll be running a full Greenlight campaign next month after we hit the backers' beta.

I sincerly hope this gets on steam. Me being under 18, i can not get Paypal, and sadly cant help fund this amazing project.
It brings joy to see that they have reached their kickstarter goal and many of their streach goals, but i know that if this were to go on steam, their popularity will grow and once it is, i will immediatly buy it. If soon enough, ill even continue to pay via steam for your more rewarding packs.
