Sunless Sea R290


Failbetter’s visually appealing (and pretty brutal) exploratio­n game came to Nintendo Switch this year. In it, London has sunk into the Neath, a subterrane­an world filled with a mix of ancient civilisati­ons, retired corpses, actual devils, mechanical dynamos, and horrifying realisatio­ns. You trade resources, carry passengers, fight ship-sized crabs and sea anemones, and find out one unsettling origin story after another. Combining the best parts of roguelikes, exploratio­n, and narrative elements makes Sea one of the deepest and most replayable games.
