The sharpest writing around, wrapped inside a surprising adventure that's tough but rarely unfair. Failbetter's finest hour.
All the verbal artistry of Sunless Sea scattered across a gorgeous steampunk cosmos that's a little easier to navigate and thrive in.
A wonderfully refined sequel that takes everything that was great about the original and expands and improves upon it, making for a much more accessible experience for everyone.
A fascinating, immersive trek. Sunless Skies excels at world-building and begs to be experienced by anyone who enjoys a dark story
The follow-up to Sunless Seas is an adventure that conjures up a journey of endless wonder, where seemingly anything is possible.
When I’m not playing Sunless Skies, I find myself musing about what will happen the next time I jump on.
Sunless Skies is a refined and more organic successor for Sunless Sea. The skies above London are full of intriguing events and charming characters depicted through a fancy, sharp and magnetic writing. The hybrid gameplay which mixes “choose your own adventure” elements with a classic RPG/roguelite scheme works well and offer a deep and satisfying experience. If you don't mind read walls of text and embrace the rhythm of the slow gaming, Sunless Skies is one of the best games around.

This imaginative and darkly humorous sci-fi survival game has you fearfully chart a vast, hostile universe
Sunless Skies is a wild, mysterious RPG that blends together a plethora of traits from multiple genres. The result is something unique, engaging, and incredibly fun.
Despite being loads more forgiving than the first brutal installment, Sunless Skies is wicked hard.
