Steam Review – Sunless Sea
Sunless Sea is Fallen London animated and focused on the zee. What is the zee you ask? Probably best you don’t know honestly, but I’ll tell you anyhow since you’re so curious.
The zee is the wide berth of water that your ship plys as it travels across to various locations, fending off pirates, living icebergs, various creatures and monsters, and maybe getting some interesting stuff done. Most of the locations are various locales maybe seen with the browser based game it is based from (like fungal chopping camps, tomb colonist towns, and other hidden tidbits). Your aim is to select aspects of yourself (affirmations are always fun) and your drive that sends you out to zee.
While you are in port or even sometimes while out at zee you will run into storylets, which are little conversations or actions that give you choices on how to take it on (or disregard it all together). Things that happen during the game (like being cursed by Salt for example) can influence how these events will resolve, so it’s helpful to keep in mind what it could possibly do. Overall it is a very fun game, it warns you that your first captain will most likely die (and they will, no doubt), so it takes some getting used to, but is very entertaining.
A video link is incoming soon, but as my stream was kinda hiccity I didn’t want to use that one, so I’ll have a simple recording done and uploaded.
