Sunless Skies Combat & Adventuring Gameplay
Feb 7, 2019Sunless Skies is a strange amalgamation of genres with even stranger stories to tell, but the weird world and nightmarish encounters come together to create something special. Combat and repetition may weigh down the Homeric adventure, but the overall journey is well worth the ticket.
Feb 28, 2019Sunless Skies is a refined and more organic successor to Sunless Sea. The skies above London are full of intriguing events and charming characters depicted through a fancy, sharp and magnetic writing. The hybrid gameplay which mixes “choose your own adventure” elements with a classic RPG/roguelite scheme works well and offer a deep and satisfying experience. If you don’t mind read walls of text and embrace the rhythm of the slow gaming, Sunless Skies is one of the best games around.
Feb 8, 2019Sunless Skies is another well-written story from Failbetter Games. The story and setting carry the game, but the combat mechanics can take some getting used to and may feel limiting. If you like your stories thick in the dark and strange ways of things like H.P. Lovecraft than this could very well be your cup of maddening tea. And you do like tea, don’t you? Of course you do, the Queen wouldn’t allow it to be otherwise and She is watching, always watching.
Feb 21, 2019Sunless Skies is a real "interactive book". In the new game of Failbetter Games there are texts of a really rare quality for a video game, like a good sci-fi novel. Too bad that the strength of Sunless Skies is also its greatest limit: there are often long sequences of readings a bit too verbose and ends in themselves.
Aug 21, 2020I love sunless skies but there are flaws
pros great exploration when ever I played the game Loved seeing everything i saw in theI love sunless skies but there are flaws
great exploration when ever I played the game Loved seeing everything i saw in the backgrounds
great writing this game has some of the best writing I've seen
combat I did like the combat but its not the best
great atmosphere and story the story kept me in maybe not the main story but the side story's
I felt slow when exploring and a better engine is costly
The main story I had to look for specific things to learn about story
The best way to get money in my opinion takes time and resources to do
even with the cons the pros outweigh them by a lot in rate this game a 10/10… Expand
Jan 31, 2019Post-apocalyptic Victorian adventure novel set within a mission driven combat-lite exploration game.
+ Well composed and atmosphericPost-apocalyptic Victorian adventure novel set within a mission driven combat-lite exploration game.
+ Well composed and atmospheric environment, rife with pathetic fallacy.
+ The stories are rich and diverse, tempting you ever onward.
+ Combat puzzles have some diversity and are a fun aside.
- Fairly regular stuttering when loading new scenes can break immersion.
- Some UX issues and missing quality of life conveniences.
- Combat AI is relatively immature, leading to common glitches.
If you enjoyed Frostpunk’s theme, Windward’s gameplay or Darkest Dungeon’s storytelling, then this is worth picking up and likely a must have after the first patch...… Expand
Feb 4, 2019Failbetter live up to there name... Many improvements to Sunless Sea. but Still so much fail.
Pro's: Great writing, improved User interfaceFailbetter live up to there name... Many improvements to Sunless Sea. but Still so much fail.
Pro's: Great writing, improved User interface that takes the design of '100 days', gorgeous world design, combat much more dynamic and fun.
Cons: 70% of the game is doing nothing waiting to get somewhere.. the pacing is awful and ends up you have to grind the same locations to get a slither of story.
This game tries to be a rogue lite like the first.. but it makes for a terrible roguelite experience as you end up just like the first repeating the same story content. You can turn this off which i recommend.. but you still have to deal with **** movement speed and the wims of autosave.. which just failed on me.… Expand
Feb 10, 2019Sunless Skies é um jogo com uma narrativa tão viva, intensa e complexa que talvez fosse melhor se aplicada em um livro. O jogo como um todoSunless Skies é um jogo com uma narrativa tão viva, intensa e complexa que talvez fosse melhor se aplicada em um livro. O jogo como um todo seria no máximo medíocre se não contasse com essa parte. Seu gameplay é lento e difícil; sua direção de arte é boa, mas sem identidade e pecando em alguns quesitos; sua parte sonora é mediana. Pode valer a pena, porém, se você tiver a paciência para acompanhar uma história incrível.… Expand
