If you like exploration survival games with a rich story and complex depths, Failbetter’s steampunkish Sunless Sea is an experience not to be missed. You’re the captain of a steamer ship, taking on passengers and trading jobs, trying to work your way up from humble beginner to Captain of the High Seas, according to the goals of your character. This involves amassing wealth, fighting horrific monsters, managing resources and crew, and making decisions at story points along the route.
We recommend a guide to start with, but once you’re comfortable with the gameplay, there’s hours of in-depth entertainment ahead.
