Still on the fence about trying out Sunless Sea, the roguelike-like(like?) from the developers of Fallen London? Then I have just the thing. Over on Paste Games we've just started dipping our toes into video reviews, offering brief impressions and cut-together action demonstrating recent video games that have caught our eye. First there was Life is Strange, then my good friend Austin Walker's video for Darkest Dungeon. As for me, my very first video for the site focuses on (as I'm sure you've already guessed) the seafaring (or zeefaring) strategy game Sunless Sea.
It was certainly tricky to do, because Sunless Sea is a pretty low-key game. It moves slowly and steadily... It's actually very relaxing to play, except for all the surprising little horrors that it likes to quietly unleash on you. It's definitely not the easiest subject for a 3 minute long video.
So did I pull it off? I'm not sure, but I'll let you be the judge.
If you want to read my written impressions of the game, I wrote about it back when it launched in Steam's Early Access program last summer. Although a lot about the game has changed since then, my impressions have remained pretty much unchanged. For a written review of the game in its finished state, however, PCGamer and Eurogamer both have excellent write-ups.
