Failbetter Games Announces Sunless Sea 2

Sunless Sea developer Failbetter Games has announced a sequel to their roguelike exploration game. Announced during this year’s EGX, the new game is currently scheduled to launch on Kickstarter next February.

In departure from the mysterious underwater setting of its elder sister, Sunless Skies will instead take place across an airborne environment, expanding  Sea’s Victorian narrative with inspiration from classic sci-fi writers like H.G Wells and C.S Lewis, as well as the work of Leigh Brackett, Art Nouveau and W.S Anderson’s Event Horizon.

“We’re enhancing the stuff we liked, and refining the experience.” says Failbetter’s Hannah Flynn via the studio’s blog, “It will be a punishing game, but respectful of your time.

As with Sunless Sea, the game will make use of Steam’s Early Access program, taking on board “all of the lessons we learned from Sunless Sea.” It’ll be released across Windows, Mac and Linux – the same platforms Sunless Sea is available on now.

“At the moment we are in pre-production: art concepts, topline story, weekly seminars looking at different aspects of Sunless Sea that we want to renew or update.” Flynn continues. “We learned a lot creating SS, we’re looking forward to using that knowledge to make a smoother, more engaging sequel.”

The Sunless sequel is still in early development, meaning it’s likely to be a while until an official release date is revealed. It’ll be available to support on Kickstarter this February, however.
