The Pirate Poet and the Cladery Heir: Now available to all players, for free!

By Hannah Flynn, January 31, 2017 · iOS Sunless Sea Sunless Skies

As of today’s Sunless Sea update, the Pirate Poet and Cladery Heir are available to all players as part of the base game, and free of charge!

We consulted with our Kickstarter backers before Christmas and they have graciously said that the more people can play all of the content, the better. Please thank them, their backing made this happen!

The Pirate Poet
Captains, beware! The Pirate-Poet now zails the zee, seeking a worthy rival. The pirates of Gaider’s Mourn tell many stories of this clay corsair. Can you be the one to finally best her?

The Cladery Heir
A surgeon of such skill that she can amputate flaws of character and excise unwanted foibles…

The Cladery Heir is a new officer with her own storyline – during which you can acquire a new ship, the Cladery Heart. She can be picked up at Fallen London when you have ‘A New Recruit’ at 1 or more.

Sunless Skies Kickstarter: TOMORROW!

Talking of Kickstarter, hopefully you’ll be well aware that the campaign to fund Sunless Sea’s sequel is beginning tomorrow at 16:00 GMT.

We’re so excited to know what you think about the campaign and the glimpses of our work on the new game. The Kickstarter ends at 1900 GMT on 3 March, so don’t miss out!

Our podcast begins!

Sunless Sea on iOS

As if all of that wasn’t enough, we’ll be releasing Sunless Sea on iOS this spring.

This is the full version of the base game with all content updates, reworked for a touch interface. (It does not include Zubmariner.)

How fortunate, that you decided to release these two before I decided to begin playing Sunless Sea. I happened to get the Cladery Heir in my first run of the game, and I've really enjoyed her character. The little I've seen so far of her storyline was... Interesting. Her character was the first to really grab my interest in this game and remind me of the potential there was in SS's stories I'd seen back when I played Fallen London.

Do you have any plans to bring it to Android? My desktop is only able to deal with browsers and such, not real games, but I've got a smartphone!

Please think about Android as well. I would love to be able to take Sunless Sea everywhere. It would make those 4 hour train trips shorter. :)
