Sunless Skies news, hoodies, map posters and Steam Awards!

Friends! We’re bringing you a small additional update this month, containing a few things of interest:

Sunless Skies pre-production update

Our first pre-production blog about Sunless Skies is live! Discover how and why we are going from a map that looks like this in Sunless Sea:



To one which looks like this, in Sunless Skies:



Sunless Sea Maps and New Hoodies

You have a few days left to order a Sunless Sea map for the last time!



This third and final edition of these beautiful, high-quality prints will be delivered to you in time for Christmas by our friends at Gamers Edition. Orders close at noon GMT on Monday 28 November.

And we also have two new hoodie designs for zeefaring types! One features more Correspondence than is probably wise to have on a garment (bucket of sand not included) and the other warns of the nature of the Zee.




Order from the Failbetter US Store and use code 2016OMG to get 15% off and free standard delivery until 28 November. In the EU store, get 10% off at checkout
from 1–5 December with the code CHRISTMAS16.

Steam Awards

These are happening! Consider nominating Sunless Sea in a category of your choice, or perhaps write in a relevant category (let us know what you went for, if you do).

A happy Thanksgiving to our American zailors! May you not lose your minds and eat your relatives this holiday season.

Your friends,
Failbetter Games

“Sunless Sea's method of storytelling isn't unique, but it has never been realised with such impact and elegance.”
10/10 – Eurogamer

“Absolutely the best writing in any video game since, well, as long as I can remember.”
10/10 – PCGamesN

“a very compelling and satisfying adventure... The realm of possibilities seems endless, and every time I set sail I find something new.”
9/10 – Destructoid

About This Game

LOSE YOUR MIND. EAT YOUR CREW. DIE.

Take the helm of your steamship and set sail for the unknown! Sunless Sea is a game of discovery, loneliness and frequent death, set in the award-winning Victorian Gothic universe of Fallen London.

If the giant crabs, sentient icebergs and swarms of bats don’t get you, madness and cannibalism certainly will. But that old black ocean beckons, and there’s loot for the brave souls who dare to sail her.

Betray your crew, sell your soul to a Devil, marry your sweetheart. Survive long enough and you’ll achieve your life’s ambition.

You will die, but your legacy will live on…

Key features

  • A deep, compelling world packed with 350,000+ words of stories and secrets. Find your father’s bones. Determine London’s destiny. Defy the gods of the deep sea.
  • Beautiful, hand drawn art - castles of sparkling ice, prisons perched on lily pads, fog-shrouded lighthouses and the DAWN MACHINE.
  • Your captain will die. But you can pass on resources from one generation to the next. Acquire a family home and a hoard of heirlooms. Build up your own story across generations of zailors who braved the sea and lost - or won...
  • Real-time combat against ships and Zee-beasts, spider-crewed dreadnoughts and sentient icebergs.
  • Light and dark, terror and madness: stray too far from the gas-lamps of civilisation and your crew will grow fearful and eventually lose their sanity.
  • Upgrade your steamship with powerful engines, cannons and pneumatic torpedo guns. (Or 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 a ship’s mascot: the Comatose Ferret, the Wretched Mog, the Elegiac Cockatoo, and more!
  • Trade or smuggle silk and souls, mushroom wine and hallucinogenic honey.
