Sunless Sea is now available on iPad!

We've teamed up with BlitWorks (known for mobile versions of Invisible Inc., Don't Starve, Broken Age and Bastion, among others) for this port,and they’ve done an excellent job of adapting the game’s mechanics for touch controls.



Rediscover Sunless Sea on iPad (the port is a standalone game, so saves will not cross over with PC saves). Choose from two different touch-screen control systems, which you can switch between at any time from the settings menu, and experience the same formidable achievements in Apple’s Game Center.

If you’re interested in cannibalism on the go, Sunless Sea for iPad is available for $9.99 / £9.99 and requires iOS8+ and will be compatible with iPad Pro, iPad Air, iPad Air 2 or higher.


P.S. We do not recommend taking the screenshot above as a 'how to' on docking

Help unlock a new Blemmigan in Sunless Sea!

We’ve had an incredible Kickstarter campaign for Sunless Sea’s sequel! We were funded in 4 hours and 200% funded in 4 days. Amazing. Many of those backers are among our Steam players - thank you so much!

Blemmigans! Blemmigans! Blemmigans!

If we reach 25 of the social goals for the Kickstarter campaign, we’ll be releasing new Blemmigans in Fallen London, Sunless Sea and Sunless Skies.

The Blemmigan Gallivanter, a mascot for Sunless Sea

My, what a keen little mushroom! Raring to go, and eager to see every soggy corner of the wide, wide zee. But is it too young to be a zailor? Because you're pretty sure it drew that moustache on itself with a pen.

To help unlock the Blemmigan Gallivanter, contribute to a social goal:


If you're able to join in with the campaign in any way, we appreciate it so much. Thank you for all of your support!

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.
