Sunless Sea: Zubmariner Edition will have you eating your crew on PlayStation 4 this year

From Press Release:

LOSE YOUR MIND. EAT YOUR CREW. DIE.

The acclaimed literary RPG Sunless Sea, which has sold over 700,000 copies on PC, is coming to PlayStation 4 in 2018! After a successful launch on iPad in March 2017, Failbetter Games are excited to bring Sunless Sea to console for the first time.

Sunless Sea is a game of discovery, loneliness and frequent death, set in the award-winning Victorian Gothic Fallen London Universe. The focus is highly polished, hand-crafted stories, mixed with top-down exploration.

“Sunless Sea invites you to take the helm of a steam ship and explore a subterranean sea full of sinister, story-filled islands.” says Narrative Director Chris Gardiner. “If the pirates, sentient icebergs and swarms of bats don’t get you, madness and cannibalism certainly will. Smuggle sunlight, barter your soul, become a spy. Seek immortality or provoke a revolution of tigers. Perhaps you’ll even achieve your life’s ambition, if you don’t lose your mind and eat your crew first. Failbetter Games is known for the quality of its writing, and we’re excited to bring it to a console audience.”

The PS4 port, Sunless Sea: Zubmariner Edition, will also include the expansive Zubmariner DLC, which doubles the map by allowing players to seek more stories below the waves. “Sunless Sea: Zubmariner Edition encapsulates the best bits of the Sunless Sea experience,” remarks CEO and Creative Director Paul Arendt, “It is deeper, darker, and packed with the Failbetter trademark: agonising choices presented in beautiful prose.”

Failbetter Games are delighted to partner with BlitWorks (known for mobile versions of Invisible Inc., Don’t Starve, Broken Age and Bastion, among others) for the port, and can’t wait to see what the PlayStation 4 players make of their weird and wonderful universe.
