Lots of new players this week. Did you find us in the sale, or maybe you saw that Rock, Paper, Shotgun named Sunless Sea as one of the Bestest Best Games of 2014? No matter: you’re very welcome!
We live in exciting times. There is one more update in January before we leave Early Access in early February! Here’s what’s coming up in SUNLESS SEA.
DIAMOND release - coming early Jan
Lots of improvements to combat. New attack characteristics, more variation in zee-beast behaviour. More polished animations and effects.
The map will be very close to complete. As an early Christmas present, we’re posting some of the upcoming islands on art director Paul Arendt’s Tumblr.
There will also be some major story content: Irem and the Pillared Sea, the Empire of Hands, Frostfound and the sun-touched Calumnies.
PEARL release - coming early Feb
Sunless Sea leaves early access! Completed plot and map, lots of polish and glitter.
This has been a huge year for us and many of you have been with us for the whole journey. Thank you for your support, criticism and feedback. Thank you for trusting us to do Early Access right.
We can’t wait to reveal the completed game for you in February; but until then we hope the Diamond release in January will give you lots to look forward to.
Track our progress to launch here.
A very merry winterval, friends!
A multi-faceted update: new stories, new gameplay and a feast of new artwork. V0.6.3.1751 is live on Steam now, Humble will follow later today.
When you die, choose your relationship to the late captain. More control over what you receive to take into your next game, and an idea of why you got it.
Neutral ships. Sail alongside them and your crew will be soothed by their presence. Follow them to discover new trade routes. Shoot at them if you fancy, but they will retaliate.
See the full patch notes for more updates and tweaks to gameplay.
Stories galore! Espionage, masked encounters, cruelty, desire and a mystery from Fallen London’s past... If you haven't been getting new stories as they become avialable, you're in for a feast.
"In the chilly spaces of the Garden Tower, your contact pleads for a taste. Just for a taste. You give them much more, and their gratitude is boundless."
Establish a network of agents under the nose of the Khanate. Use and sacrifice them for Intelligence. Feed secrets to the Admiral or with the Voracious Diplomat, and determine London's destiny…
"All visitors must pass, one by one, through a room guarded by a person in the mask of a Moon-Moth..."
The isle named Visage is now open, if you are prepared to go masked. Our most enigmatic island yet. Learn the etiquette of masks. Ascend the ranks. Uncover the confessions of Flourishing-of-Years.
"Welcome to the Isle of Cats," the Wide-Eyed Dockmaster says brightly. "Would you like to bribe me not to write down your details in this nice official ledger?"
Unravel a tale of memory, cruelty and desire, with the King's Claw, the Lady of the Cages, and a mystery from Fallen London's past...
The Sea of Lilies now exists for you to sail to and pretend you’re in Voyage of the Dawn Treader, except the lilies are really mushrooms, and there’s a prison.
We’re also filling in the gaps in icons and generally prettifying the game, which we hope you like.
As ever we await your exceedingly helpful feedback. Enjoy!
“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.”
Rock Paper Shotgun
“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.”
