I just had a sudden thought, sorry if it has come up before. Why is the game called Sunless Skies? Sunless Sea makes sense, there isn't a sun down there (well, there's a sort of artificial one, and a hole in the roof in one place letting the sunlight in, but other than that...).

But surely, the High Wilderness... There are plenty of suns up there, right? They've got them coming out of their ears. It isn't in any sense "sunless."

They're dying. Give it a bit of time and I'm sure it'll earn the name.

I'm so, so glad I'm not the only one who's been puzzling over this! Since it was announced I've been confused . . . .

Because people won't make the connection between the two games if you call it the "High Wilderness"

suinicide just said it : the suns are dying, hence the "sunless" skies. =)

Well, clearly it's called Sunless Skies to link it to Sunless Sea. Kinda goes without saying (hence I didn't say it).

But I was thinking more about how good a fit it actually is, considering the setting is a place full of suns. Hadn't considered the dying suns angle. But dying or not, there's still plenty of 'em. smile

There are plenty of lightbulbs and lanterns but we don't call them "stars" in the same way we call our sun a star.

Does the sky have any actual suns?

"Skies So Distant From Suns That, Despite Distant Pinpricks of Light, They Find Freedom in Darkness" was the working title.
