Starting in Mt. Palmerston, I make a lot of mistakes that cost me a lot of time. With better execution and some better rng, I think this time is beatable by at least half an hour. -- Watch live at

Let's Play Sunless Sea - Episode 1 - The Voyage of Capn' Dappingtonshire

We begin our derpy Let's Play of Sunless Sea, a roguelike sailing game set in the dark world of Fallen London. During this Let's Play, we'll talk about the beginning gameplay of Sunless Sea, and where to get started. Along the way we'll more than likely die horribly, so this may be a very short voyage. Derp.

Who is Splattercat?

I'm a Let's Player gamer from Northern California who enjoys video games of all varieties. While I do game on the Xbox360 and Wii occasionally, most of the content that is featured on this channel will be new PC game releases and Indie PC Games.I publish videos daily so be sure to check in and see what's been going with me here at the Nerd Castle. My upload schedule typically includes one main series which is uploaded daily, followed by two minor series' which are alternated days. This means you get two videos a day with alternating content on alternating days. I enjoy Strategy games, RPGs of all varieties, and Sandbox games, so many times my content will reflect this in my game selections. If you're into humor, banter, or slightly off topic discussion while I play you'll probably find something to like here. I try to keep my content mostly clean, but language / Adult jokes may make an appearance on occasion. Thanks for stopping by and I hope to see you in the future comments!

Sunless Sea Best Engine: Fulgent Impeller & Tireless Mechanic Story (Element of Dawn)


Ahh, the Fulgent Impellor. A very long, very complicated quest, involving all sorts of running all over the map, and upgrading of ships.

You'll need an Element of Dawn, cargo space for 42 items (plus fuel and supplies), the Unsettling Sage from Wisdom and the Mechanic's Secret from Frostfound.

The Element of Dawn requires the Memento Mori, available through the Cannoneer's Story, and that's here:

None of these are easy things to do, but the engine is excellent, and totally worth it.

A Hitchhiker's Guide to Early Access: Sunless Sea

Hello from 2015! It's a new year, time to start back in with some new content. This time we are taking a look at the very interesting Sunless Sea by Failbetter Games. Set in the world of Fallen London, the Neath, and the Unterzee, we find ourselves adrift in a black sea of very well written stories, dismal but whimsical, and vaguely unsettling events in a mysterious world for you to explore and attempt to understand.
Highly recommended if you like to be pleasantly confused, get it here:

Sunless Sea Montage

I realized that if you git gud you can beat every monster in the game with the worst ship with starting stats (although I also abuse the scintillack some because it is nice. Another exploit discovered with this ship was that you can expand your cargo permanently by dumping stuff like weapons and engines into the sea, they won't disappear right away so you can equip them and get 1+ to max cargo. You can easily sail all over the map with this ship without any special preparations or grinding, I guess that has been known for a long time by Sunless Sea superplayers, but it was news to me!

Also those Jillyfleurs are one of the scariest enemies to fight when humping; their turn radius is tiny and they charge very far.

Sunless Skies Review: Adventure on the High Skies

If you're a fan of Sunless Sea, you already know what you're getting into with Sunless Skies, but for those less familiar with the series, Lovecraft's Eurotugboat Simulator has taken to the skies on a whole new adventure where devils walk in broad daylight, ancient, unknowable things lurk in the corners of the world, and time itself is made a physical currency. Half choose your own adventure novel, half economic manager, there's nothing quite like Sunless Skies on the market today. But is it as good as it is unique? And more importantly, can you enjoy it without having to sell your soul for extra hours? Find out in this First Five review!

Sunless Skies is available on PC. You can find it here on Steam:

Sunless Sea Legacies | An Adumbration of Her Heart | +10 Pages | Explore the Abyss

Read more for the quick answers!

So, back to Sunless Sea. I've been exploring the Zubmariner content, and here's how to get a very easy legacy, which also boosts stats insanely on later playthroughs.

An Adumbration of Her Heart requires that you explore the many, many Abysses littered under the Zee. Perhaps you've ventured into them and found the dark cathedrals waiting below?

When you sail(?) over one, an interaction will appear. There are four in total (spread randomly across 16 or so abysses), and you need to submerge all four in the correct order.

First, the Abyss of Scriptures, then Pyres, Pomegranates and finally the Abyss of Graves. Dive twice (a tricky hearts challenge), and start the appropriate rituals.

When all are complete, it's Elemental time. What will you choose?

Good luck!

Sunless Skies Game Description:

Sunless Skies is a Gothic Horror roleplay game with a focus on exploration and exquisite storytelling.
Command a flying steam locomotive

The only thing between you and the waste-winds, storms and cosmic lightning is your engine. Tend and upgrade it, buy weaponry and exotic equipment, and keep her hull in good shape to hold the hostile Heavens at bay.
Explore a unique and dangerous universe

You play the captain of a locomotive, a steam engine fitted for off-rail travel: sailing the stars, leading your crew into trouble and out of their minds. Smuggle souls, barter for crates of time, stop for cricket and a cup of tea.

Discover more of the deep, dark and marvelous Fallen London Universe, as seen in our previous game, SUNLESS SEA. (You can play either game first, the stories coexist happily.)

Fight her majesty's agents, pirates and abominations of the skies

Face ships of differing factions and unknowable beasts each with different attacks and agendas.
Survive starvation, madness and terror.

Manage your crew’s condition and your captain’s nightmares. Balance fuel and supplies against your desire for new horizons, knowledge or riches. Struggle with sights never meant for human eyes. How will the dark change you?
Recruit officers on your adventures

Populate your ship with unique, upgradeable officers, each with their own quest to fulfill: an incautious driver, an incognito princess, a repentant devil, and - dear god! - your Aunt?! How did she get out here?

Discover your captain’s past through narrative levelling

Reveal your captain’s past deeds as facets of their personality as you progress. Most captains will perish, but their actions will leave a mark on the world for their descendants - for better or worse. Pass on some effects, and return anew to deal with events that your previous captain put into motion.


The High Wilderness is a wondrous vision of space: shifting, wind-swept ruins where the laws of the cosmos are not as we imagined.

The stars are alive. They are the Judgments: vast intelligences that govern all things. But they are dying. One by one, something is snuffing them out, leaving their thrones empty.

Unfettered by trivial things like gravity, the Victorian Empire have pushed their tendrils into this new world, and their ambition is savage. They have built a new Sun. The Empress Victoria reigns from the Throne of Hours, which gives her control over time.

Your Captain and crew must carve out a life between the stars. Will you support her majesty and the establishment, or the working class rebels who yearn for freedom from the Workworlds?


Multiple, intertwining stories with a depth and richness unlike anything else in games, inspired by CS Lewis, Jules Verne, Lovecraft and HG Wells

Lush, hand-drawn 2d art to match

Four giant regions to explore: celestial wilderness, impossible industrial empire, pagan midnight expanse, and the mysterious Blue Kingdom.

A choice of play styles: build a lineage of captains as each dies, or reload your most recent captain and continue

Key remapping and full controller support
