Sunless Sea is a unique title. A rogue-like set in a Lovecraftian nightmare with table-top RPG elements backed up by some truly excellent writing. The slow pace, and narrative delivery may well put some players off though.

Sunless Sea: Zubmariner Edition is a brutally challenging strategy/sim release on PlayStation 4 that will test your skills in full. You're getting the main game as well as the Zumbariner expansion, hence the name of this edition, with a single purchase, making this the definitive console version of the game. You'll spend hours trying to micromanage things to make the most of your Echo so that you can keep your ship fueled and in tiptop shape and your crew properly fed so that they don't have to resort to eating the rats on the ship… or any diseased former crew members. Are you up for the challenge?
