After the predecessor has already been completed by the players, Sunless Skies will also be available via Steams Early Access and GOG Games in Development as a game still under development. More specifically, on August 30th, the British studio will be ready to announce it in a newsletter
Description of the game
The money obtained will allow him to improve his spaceship by his armaments or even to change his model in order to be more effective against the many dangers that will await the hero, from the pirates to the space monsters. It will also be necessary to pay attention to the horror felt by his crew who could mutiny if he fears too much for his life. The fighting happens in real time.
Story of game
We will find dialogues, choices and decisions to make, and we will have to do with permadeath for our captains, but these different deaths may not change our previous choices. Early access offers us the opportunity to discover the very first game area out of the four planned. As time goes by, we will have the opportunity to discover new ships, ports, enemies, objects and quests.
Many decisions will have to be made and unlike the first episode, the different permanent deaths of your captains will not change your previous choices. However, an option will allow the player to actually die and reshape the card for the new captain. The fighting will once again be part of the game and we will be led to encounter unnamable creatures in the cosmic void.
Sunless Sea owners can look forward to a content update: Matching the kickstarter of Sunless Skies, all players of the predecessor now get the former kickstarter-exclusive content The Pirate Poet, a mysterious enemy and Cladery Heir, another officer. Whoever completes the quest line of the latter will also get a new ship: the Cladery Heart.
