Today, Failbetter Games has released their mysterious roguelike title, Sunless Sea [$9.99]. Currently, the game is available for the iPad only and will require at least an iPad Air. Sunless Sea shares the same gothic universe as Fallen London, however, places you at the mercy of a subterranean ocean called Unterzee where you will zail with your Zubmariner. Do beware the zee-beasts for they are merciless.
Is it just us or have the developers made the letter Z a common theme of their game? The beauty of the game comes with the management of your resources and crew as insanity will creep over them gradually. Since the game is built to be a roguelike experience, it means that if your captain dies you will start all over again. However, your new captain will have certain traits from the previous captain and the sea map will be randomized so that you don’t get bored of the same locations.
Sunless Sea was first released in February of 2015 for the PC, so this is a high quality game being ported by BlitWorks to the iPad. If you are looking for a quality game that will keep you entertained, then this title will live up to its price. You can watch the trailer for Sunless Sea below.
