Fall Into The Sea
From the creators of the actually rather good, browser based, Fallen London, comes a new tale from the same Lovecraftian universe: Sunless Sea. The survival game at sea sees you confronting many an Eldritch abomination as well as having to contend with scarce food and a possibly mutinous crew on your lonely little ship.
Much like its predecessor, Sunless Sea is heavily choice-based with players having to be careful as every action has consequences (some good but often times not so much). If you make the wrong choice it can affect how your crew behaves and things can quickly go from bad to worse to 'your crew are probably going to eat you' to 'there is an infernal giant squid munching on your hull. That shan't be good for your ship's structural integrity'.
As previously mentioned, both Fallen London and Sunless Sea occur in the same universe and I can't wait to see how the two shall cross over. However both games are also very different despite this connection. Whilst Fallen London is free-to-play, one won't be able to say the same of Sunless Sea. The game will also run in real time on the Unity engine. Lastly, a Kickstarter is set to launch on the 3rd of September. Watch this space for more on that soon.
I haven't played Fallen London in forever but I'm sure my character from that game, Ms. Jaws, would feel right at home sailing the Sunless Sea. Now, if you'll excuse me, a honey-addled detective has recently come to my attention and I really must chase up Mr. Slowcake's assistant about my entry in Slowcake's Exceptionals.
