10 best tips for playing Sunless Sea


Sunless Sea Guide - How to make money in the early game (minor spoilers)


So, a small guide for Sunless Sea, covering how to get going in the early game and make some money.

It's actually pretty straightforward, and takes advantage of the fact that death is encouraged.

Essentially, quickly make 200 echoes, buy the reproach gun, die, pass it to your heir, and then get going. Head out and uncover as many ports as possible, including strategic information for the Admiralty.

Uncover the Salt Lions if you can, and also Mount Palmerston (because the Blind Bruiser quests can net quite a lot of cash quickly).

Spend the first 1200 on lodgings and a will, and don't forget to start a scion legacy, which will put you in great shape for down the line. You can then retire, if you like, and do it all again, starting from an even stronger position.

After that, you're on your own!

About the game:

Sunless Sea is a nautical roguelike in glorious 2D, presenting a non-linear, choice-heavy, personalised experience.

Set on a randomised map, it’ll take dozens of games to explore all the sub-plots, grand arcs, alternatives, mysteries, relationships and romances in the game. Your character will die (or disappear, or lose her mind, or be hollowed out and filled with candle-wax and haunt a cliff-top chapel), but their legacy may survive. You’ll build up your own story across generations of zailors who braved the Unterzee and lost – or won…

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: How To Reduce Terror Guide


In this guide, we'll look at how to manage and reduce Terror. We'll look at a few things you can buy to do it (bigger engines, for example), and the effect of the main ports which can rapidly mitigate and reduce terror issues.

Mostly, they're around the edge - Fallen London and the Cumaen Canal are obvious candidates, but there's perhaps a few further afield you didn't know about

Sunless Sea Best Weapon: Memento Mori & the Irrepressible Cannoneer & Judgement Eggs


Sunless Sea again! This time, we're getting the Memento Mori - a fantastic weapon for killing zee-beasts in combat. It's a fairly long process.

0:00 First up, you'll need the Irrepressible Cannoneer from the Iron Republic (or randomly from London).

1:15 Then it's over to Demaux Island with 200 echoes.

1:35 Off to Aestival with 5 supplies. Keep at least 1 Lamentable Relic

2:30: At some point, swing past Mount Palmerston and grab 3 Devilbone Dice.

2:50 Then to Venderbight (for a tour) or Irem (for 15 secrets) to grab a Judgement Egg.

3:55: Back to the Iron Republic with all your bits and pieces. DO NOT SELL THE SEARING ENIGMA.

5:00: Finally, head to Station with your Devilbone Dice, and grab the Memento Mori.

Good Game Review - Sunless Sea - TX: 24/2/15

A life spent sailing the briny deep can lead to breathtaking discovery and starvation-fuelled madness in the top-down exploration of Sunless Sea...

Sunless Sea: how to kill Mt Nomad!

It can be done! Mt Nomad can be defeated! Watch as I take her on for the first time and win without a scratch.

If you want to try this yourself, you'll need the Bandersnatch (forward gun available in London), plenty of torpedo components, and a good deck gun as backup. Remember to keep her just, but only just, within range and take advantage of the Bandersnatch's excellent stun capacity.

Good luck, captain!

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
