Lovecraftian terrors await in “Sunless Sea”, now available on Xbox One, Switch

Late last week, game publisher Digerati Distribution released Failbetter Games’ seafaring horror title Sunless Sea: Zubmariner Edition for both Xbox One and Nintendo Switch.

Here’s the official description of the game below:


LOSE YOUR MIND. EAT YOUR CREW. DIE.

Sunless Sea is a Lovecraftian steampunk game set in an alternate Victorian London where you navigate a steamship through the deep sea.

Take the helm of your steamship in a Victorian Gothic roleplaying game of discovery, loneliness and frequent death.

Find your father’s bones. Determine London’s destiny. Defy the gods of the deep sea.

Build up your story across generations of zailors who braved the sea and lost

Real-time combat against ships and Zee-beasts, spider-crewed dreadnoughts and sentient icebergs

Stray too far from civilization and your crew will grow fearful and eventually lose their sanity

Upgrade your steamship with powerful engines, cannons and pneumatic torpedo guns

Hire unique officers, each with their own story

Discover the treasures the zee has claimed

Choose a ship’s mascot

Trade or smuggle silk and souls

Sunless Sea: Zubmariner Edition includes the base game and the extensive underwater expansion.

Rogue-lite elements

The Sunless Sea core gameplay loop is very rogue-lite. You are going to die a bunch at the beginning but you pass your skills on to your next captain, so each run gets just a little bit easier. 

The map is randomly generated which means every run is a bit different 

Sunless Sea is available now for Xbox One and Nintendo Switch at the introductory price of $15.99.


There are new designs in The Splintering’s Teespring store with items starting at just $10.99! If you like what we do & want to help keep our site 100% free of paid ads, go here!
