the unforgettable sound of a ship's spine breaking

Sunless Sea is out. Eurogamer gave it 10 out of 10.

My first captain — Regibald, a citizen poet looking to write the Zong of the Zee — was too slow to seek foreign foreign waters, and while he thoroughly charted the ports nearest London, his voyages were ones of diminishing returns. Perhaps that is why he snapped, and with precious few supplies or fuel, and with but a single crewman remaining (after misunderstanding his felonious employer's instructions, which resulted in thugs murdering most of his zailors), he traveled far to the north through perilous straits into waters out of time and memory, to a port where no-one and nothing ever changes, and through inexplicable good fortune was even able to leave that distant place, and began the long journey back home, but the waters grew unmerciful, and the gods did not look kindly on one who'd spat in the face of their acolytes, and so gradually he succumbed to the terror that mounts on distant waves with no shores or light or hope and, on the very cusp of returning to London's safe harbor, clasping a gold locket to his breast, he succumbed to the enticing cries of the Drowned and plunged overboard to oblivion.

His rival — the disgraced priest, Madam Penolepe — has now come to possess one of his deck guns, and has taken it south in search of the dark coffee beans her cadaverous contact in the church demanded in exchange for information about her long-dead father.

This game is amazing.

If you are so inclined, you can find opportunities for monstrous acts. My captain kept his head, though. For now.

Ahaha, I like how the description for one is just "Do not do this."
