Sunless Skies

Contributing Writer

Sunless Skies is a Gothic Horror roleplaying game with a focus on exploration and exquisite storytelling. It was released for PC by Failbetter Games on 31 January 2019.

I am a contributing writer to this delightful game. I have written four main locations (the Clockwork Sun, Piranesi, Death's Door and the White Well). I also wrote two of the game's extensive Ambitions (epic overarching quest-lines) - the Song of the Sky and the Martyr-King's Cup. In addition, I wrote an officer character with an intricate branching storyline (the Amiable Vagabond).



The sharpest writing around, wrapped inside a surprising adventure that’s tough but rarely unfair.


The great joy of Failbetter's latest is once again the ghoulish inventiveness of the writing and setting.


This is a game about stories that has a knack of producing really good ones - when you're doing well, and especially when you're doing badly.
