Failbetter’s award-winning PC game is now on iOS! Take the helm of your steamship and set sail for the unknown. Sunless Sea is a game of discovery, loneliness and frequent death, set in the award-winning Victorian Gothic universe of Fallen London.

If the giant crabs, sentient icebergs and swarms of bats don’t get you, madness and cannibalism certainly will. But that old black ocean beckons, and there’s loot for the brave souls who dare to sail her.

Betray your crew, sell your soul to a Devil, marry your sweetheart. Survive long enough and you’ll achieve your life’s ambition.

You will die, but your legacy will live on…


- A deep, compelling world packed with 350,000+ words of stories and secrets. Find your father’s bones. Determine London’s destiny. Defy the gods of the deep sea.

- Beautiful, hand drawn art: castles of sparkling ice, prisons perched on lily pads, fog-shrouded lighthouses and the DAWN MACHINE.

- Your captain will die. But you can pass on resources from one generation to the next. Acquire a family home and a hoard of heirlooms. Build up your own story across generations of zailors who braved the sea and lost - or won...

- Real-time combat against ships and Zee-beasts, spider-crewed dreadnoughts and sentient icebergs.

- Light and dark, terror and madness: stray too far from the gas-lamps of civilisation and your crew will grow fearful and eventually lose their sanity.

- Upgrade your steamship with powerful engines, cannons and pneumatic torpedo guns. (Or buy a bigger, better ship.)

- Hire unique officers like the Haunted Doctor and the Irrepressible Cannoneer. Each has a story to tell, if you can draw it out of them.

- Choose a ship’s mascot: the Comatose Ferret, the Wretched Mog, the Elegiac Cockatoo, and more!

- Trade or smuggle silk and souls, mushroom wine and hallucinogenic honey.


- “Absolutely the best writing in any video game since, well, as long as I can remember.” (10/10 – PCGamesN)

- “A very compelling and satisfying adventure... The realm of possibilities seems endless, and every time I set sail I find something new.” (9/10 – Destructoid)

- “Sunless Sea's method of storytelling isn't unique, but it has never been realised with such impact and elegance.” (10/10 – Eurogamer)

What’s New

Version 1.25

- storylets now showing in the bottom right-hand corner of the screen now fixed

Horrible grinding simulator

Игра для мазохистов. Много контента, но вы его не увидите, потому что будете умирать. Сплошной утомительный бесконечный грайнд. Жаль, что не могу вернуть деньги.
A lot of content you'll never see because you gonna randomly die. All the good points of game are not working because of endless grind. Buy if you are masochist. I wish I could get a refund.

Hello! We're always interested in fan feedback and we'd be very interested to know which bits of the game you found the grind too frustrating - feel free to email us at sunlessmobile@failbettergames.com - thanks!

Игра отличная, на рейнджеров похожа мало, здесь больше исследования мира, аркадной войны практически нет, хотя стрелять приходится. Здесь большой и качественно наполненный мир со своей историей, который меняется в процессе игры. Больше напомнило первый Star Control, так же приходилось сидеть со словарём :) Разговорного знания английского хватит, но если хочется больше красок и понимания мира то без переводчика трудно

Не хватает других языков!

Бесспорно, игра великолепна, но из-за огромного содержания текста не получаеться играть в неё не зайдя хотя бы один раз в переводчик. Очень хочется, чтобы в игре был русский, и ещё не совсем понятно как плыть на 1 скорости и на -1.

Hello! On the iPad version of Sunless Sea, there are only three speeds: forwards, stationary or reverse. All these can be achieved by tapping on the screen. This is designed specifically for touch controls.
