Sunless Sea has a free weekend on Steam, just in time for its Steam Trading Card update

Sunless Sea

Sunless Sea is free on Steam this weekend, so you can briefly face death in the game’s dark waters before commiting money to a long voyage through its dangerous oceans. 

Sunless Sea is good. So good, in fact, that it made it onto our feature of the best indie games on PC.

If you find yourself enjoying your time with the brooding atmosphere of Sunless Sea, you can buy it at 40% off up until February 1.

It’s not all for new players, though, because Sunless Sea just got a new update that introduces the Rose-Market.

“Collectors and eccentrics gather on Roser’s Wharf, eager to buy curiosities from returning zee-captains. Can you navigate the market’s archaic customs and turn a profit?” asks the Steam update post.

“The Rose-Market appears irregularly in London, and offers an unpredictable opportunity to earn a good price for many less-used items.”

On top of this, new options will open up across ten islands, so long as your captain has sufficient zeefaring experience, “allowing you to explore some of the stranger customs of the unterzee and exchange lesser items for more valuable ones.”

These items are said to be popular among Rose-Market collectors.

As well as all this, there are now Steam Trading Cards and Badges, so you can collect them if you’re one of the people who do that sort of thing.

Oh, and some guy has done a rap video for the game, so have a watch of that while you’re at it.
