About the game:
LOSE YOUR MIND. EAT YOUR CREW. DIE.
Sunless Sea is a Gothic Horror RPG with a focus on exploration, exquisite storytelling and frequent death.
Captain a Victorian steamship on a vast underground sea
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.
Seek out intriguing individuals for your crew
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.
Stray from the gas-lamps of civilisation
Light and dark, terror and madness: spend too long on the wide, dark sea and your crew will grow fearful and eventually lose their sanity.
Carve a life for your captain in a cruel and unique world
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.
