This is a game product of Failbetter Games who are the ones who still distribute the game. Just like the title suggests, of course there is a ‘darkness’ in the plot of this game portrayed in form of magic since bats have taken up London. The game has a survival and exploration based theme and less couldn’t be expected since Failbetter Games are famed for the release of Fallen London. It is a new game in the market and features a great deal of adventure and thrill. The game features a smartly designed interface that pretty much covers every aspect of the game on one display which is great. I like the fact that the gameplay offers a tweak capability under the gameplay because the player has a chance to come up with the captain and customize some aspects like the background story. Basically you have to be in total control of your crew in this game. It is quite diverse in that it offers an expanse in relation to the map of the game. Generally it is a good game that offers a great adventure packed gameplay and theme that the gamer can enjoy to play at all times.


  • It is an easy to play game.
  • It has a nice interface.


  • It can be very adictive.

Sunless Sea is a survival game that puts you in the shoes of a Captain that must sail dangerous waters to survive and explore a dark, Victorian underworld full of terrors and creatures that will try to kill you and your crew. In fact, there is a terror meter that will increase depending on how close the monsters are to you. If the meter goes too high, your guys will panic! As a captain, it is your duty to keep the morale high and the food supplies full, otherwise you will face a starving crew that won’t hesitate to practice cannibalism to survive if things get bad enough. You will also want to keep an eye on the fuel tank, since a ship without fuel won’t take you anywhere. You can customize your captain so it gets different traits and perks such as extra health or additional resources, which always come in handy. You can also enhance and modify your ship to make it stronger and more durable.


  • The soundtrack scares the sh*t out of me
  • It is such an addictive game


  • It has no major cons worth mentioning

Sunless Sea is an exploration survival game developed and published by Failbetter Games (the creators of the award-winning Fallen London. This game is set in a Victorian Gothic world in which the bats have stolen London, and everything that remains is underground, including the vast sea. Mystery, adventure and magic are what Sunless Sea has to offer.

Once you download Sunless Sea and start playing, you will become the captain of your own ship. You will start your journey through Unterzee, the immense ocean that bathes the shores of Fallen London. Nevertheless, Fallen London is not the only city that survives underground, and the captain of a ship can earn a fortune if he or she is brave enough to navigate the dark waters of Unterzee.

Sunless Sea is that kind of game that you simply keep watching spellbound and you enjoy. The graphics are nothing special, and you will not see realism, incredible textures or any of those things. However, they are hand-drawn, and the atmosphere and setting are very immersive. The level of detail is very special, and those little animations that are overlapped with the background create the feeling of movement, weather, etc.

The music and sounds are also brilliant. The music makes you feel the tension in the right moments, and will accompany you along the quiet moments of your adventure. The background noises are very well worked, and even the tiniest details have their own sound. The quiet water, the bells of the buoys, the animals and other ships; everything has its own characteristic sound.

The first thing you will have to do in Sunless Sea is to create and customize your Captain. You can choose his or her background story, and it will influence on your resources by default. For example, if you choose to be a poet, you will have more hearts and health, if you choose to be a war veteran, you will start with more iron.

There are several things to take into account when you go out to navigate the map of Sunless Sea. Bear in mind that Sunless Sea has a terrifying world full of monsters and enemies that will turn you to ashes in a second. Thus, if you go with your ship in the dark, without lights, your crew will feel terror, and that is displayed in a terror bar on the screen. If you let your crew surrender to the fear, the will kill each other, the will commit suicide, they will hallucinate, etc. The lack of supplies is also very dangerous. If food lacks for a long time, you crew will think about cannibalism, and they will even perform it eventually.

Fuel is also very important, if your ship runs out of fuel, you will be adrift in the enormous map, and the supplies will run out, too. For these reasons, you have to pay attention to your resources, and plan your strategy very carefully. Choose your crew by relying on sailors who do not eat too much, who are brave, etc. Also, choose your routes well, if you are smart enough, you can avoid sea monsters, pirates and other enemies who can make you sink.
