Sunless Sea in the test - the word is more powerful than the sword

In the Sunless Sea test, we not only discover a true indie pearl, but also the realization that the most exciting stories are still happening in our heads.

This battle, this test of the role-playing game Sunless Sea should be different, we will tell about it years later. Will tell how we had to fight between rats and guinea pigs. And what crimes we committed! But that's how it happened! This is exactly what happened on that fateful day when our ship docked on a small island and we were received by Lady Augusta Devereaux Swinch of the Blackwater Swinches, King Gracegnaws' seneschal, the first of his name (a guinea pig in plate armor, if that has not yet become clear).

You don't believe us Does that sound like one of those unspeakable mobile titles with these nasty-cute animals with their dead Disney eyes? How wrong you are. Oh, how wrong you are! But well, we could tell you about Station III and what is happening behind its closed doors, what (or who) the priests cook in the Chapel of Light, the streets of the Khanate, or what lurks in the depths ,


The thing is, all of this is not entirely true. We have not experienced all of this in the "classic" sense. In other words, we experienced all of this - the horrors of the sea, the guinea pigs, the priests - in a particularly classic sense: as a text adventure. Sunless Sea is a mixture of pirate simulation ( Pirates! ) And interactive game book ( Fighting Fantasy ).

As the captain of a small steamship, we sail across an underground sea, the Zee, in search of adventure, love and wealth. We take a bird's eye view of the ship and use simple commands (left, right, slower, faster) to steer it across the dark water. We trade in goods, watch out for fuel (so as not to run aground) and supplies (so as not to starve). If we come across pirates or monsters, there are small real-time battles that are somewhat reminiscent of online role-playing games: weapons have a cool-down phase, are triggered from a hotkey bar and we do not have to aim ourselves. If we keep the enemy within range of our weapons long enough, the shot will automatically strike. If you pull the trigger faster, you occasionally miss the mark.

But when we dock at one of the many ports, Sunless Sea changes to the (unfortunately only English-language) text adventure perspective. We read about guinea pigs, spies, monsters and have to decide in the nastiest role-playing game-dilemma tradition: Which rodents do we help now? Do we want to go to the tavern and drink with the locals or walk the moon in the moonlight?

Live, love, be eaten by the crew

Sunless Sea connects the two levels in a clever way: We hire an engineer for the machine room so that our steamer gets faster. At a private dinner in the captain's cabin (served: sea monster on bat) we find out that she is looking for her missing mother. So we set sail to the east, to the mysterious Khanate. The fuel runs out on the way, we have to sacrifice sailors to old gods, which increases our horrific value and changes our options in the port of Khan's shadow.

The beauty of Sunless Sea are his words. Failbetter Games use them to create a dense, dark, mysterious world between British horror literature and modern fantasy. The question Sunless Sea asks is this: Do stories have to be three-dimensionally rendered and "normal-mapped" - or is text enough? The answer to that is personal - let's talk it out fine - but one last thing: The fight between rats and guinea pigs sounds cute, the Pigmote Island massacre was just words, but it won't leave us anytime soon ,
