Sunless Sea developer Failbetter Games announced that its follow-up, Sunless Skies, will be available on Steam Early Access and GOG Games in Development from August 30, 2017. Those looking to play the pre-release version of the game will be able to get access for $24.99/£18.99, with a 10% discount during its first week of availability.
Once again set in the Fallen London universe, Sunless Skies takes place ten years after its predecessor, where Queen Victoria has taken London into space and begun an expansion of the British Empire across the stars. Space in the universe, where it is known the High Wilderness, is much different to that of the real universe. Stars are living beings called the Judgments, huge intelligences that govern all. However, something is killing them one-by-one allowing the Victorian Empire to claim the domains left behind.
