Epic Games Store: Free Games – 25th February 2021
Sunless Sea is a great game. There you go, that’s all you need. But seriously, if you love your steampunk in a post-apocalyptic alternate history London then you’ve come to the right place. The game looks simple on the surface, but the art is brilliant and the storytelling is fantastic. If you’re a fan of Neil Gaiman or Terry Pratchett, you’ll find the writing style very familiar, with dark comedy firmly at the heart. There’s RPG elements, there’s tabletop board game elements, and even a bit of visual novel in there too. Not only that, because it’s procedurally-generated, each run is a little different (although some things are retained). So there’s always a reason to come back for another run when you (inevitably) get killed. And probably eaten by a monster. Or maybe your crew.
I don’t think that Sunless Sea is quite as strong as the sequel, Sunless Skies, but it’s still a game worth picking up and I would heartily recommend both of them to anyone.
