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.
