Sunless Sea is now available to buy on Steam!
Release date: 17th June 2014 (Early Access)
Take the helm of your customised steamship and set sail for the unknown! Sunless Sea is a 2D game of discovery, survival and loneliness set in the award-winning Victorian Gothic universe of Fallen London.

Will you succumb to madness and cannibalism on the black waters? Or return home triumphant with a hold full of precious loot?

Your choices determine the events of every game. Will you free the colonies of the Carnelian Coast, or keep them in the Empire’s grip? Will you sell your soul to the Wistful Deviless or spurn her advances? Can you best the sinister golden agents of the Dawn Machine?

You are the captain. It’s your call.

Key features

  • A huge open map that changes every time you play
  • A deep, compelling world packed with secrets and stories
  • Beautiful, hand drawn 2D art
  • Light and dark. Stray too far from the gas-lamps of civilisation and your crew will grow fearful and eventually lose their sanity. But there is treasure out there in the darkness…
  • Leave a legacy! When you die (and you will) your next captain may choose to inherit a skill, a chart of discovered islands or a beloved officer.
  • Upgrade your steamship with powerful engines, flensing cannons, and pneumatic torpedo guns. Or just buy a bigger, better ship.
  • Hire unique officers like the Haunted Doctor and the Irrepressible Cannoneer. Each has a story to tell, if you can draw it out of them.
  • Choose from a menagerie of ship’s mascots: the Comatose Ferret, the Wretched Mog, the Elegiac Cockatoo, and more!
  • Trade silk and souls, mushroom wine and hallucinogenic honey. Seek out the most profitable hidden trade lanes.
  • Lose your mind
  • Eat your crew

“A wonderful prospect: a game of exploration, loneliness, risk, adventure and madness taking place across a vast subterranean ocean riddled with islands, with dangers, with dripping trophies of the deep.”
Christian Donlan, Eurogamer

“Sunless Sea takes the excellent writing and world-building of Fallen London, and injects it into a 2D exploration, trading and survival game. It’s Elite but with steamships instead of starships”
Adam Smith, Rock Paper Shotgun
