The Kickstarted Literary Roguelite RPG, Sunless Sea released back in 2015 to wide acclaim and brought the Fallen London universe to much larger recognition at large. Mixing narrative and roguelite in ways rarely seen, the ambitious title also sticks out for its horror inspirations and has a sequel called Sunless Skies. It has also received the Zubmariner DLC since release adding much more territory to the game if you pick it up. Here's a brief introduction to Sunless Sea from the developers:

Take the helm of your steamship and set sail for the unknown! Sunless Sea is a game of discovery, loneliness and frequent death, set in the award-winning Victorian Gothic universe of Fallen London.

 

If the giant crabs, sentient icebergs, and swarms of bats don’t get you, madness and cannibalism certainly will. But that old black ocean beckons, and there’s loot for the brave souls who dare to sail her.

Betray your crew, sell your soul to a Devil, marry your sweetheart. Survive long enough and you’ll achieve your life’s ambition.

You will die, but your legacy will live on…
