I'm Alexis Kennedy, founder / chief narrative officer of Failbetter Games, who make the Fallen London online game and are now building the Sunless Sea spinoff. Other Failbetters will be here too. Ask us questions!
We're Failbetter, an indie studio in London, UK. By the river. Offbeat story is our thing. Fallen London (http://www.fallenlondon.com) is what we're best known for: a million words of Victorian Gothic black comedy, ten thousand choices, a thousand tasty pictures.
We're mostly here to talk about Sunless Sea, the Fallen London spinoff - 'a game of exploration, loneliness and survival' - 140% funded on Kickstarter with 24 hours to go!
http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/failbetter/sunless-sea . But we'll happily chat about Fallen London, our other projects (Machine Cares, Black Crown, Night Circus, StoryNexus) or anything else, including ginger cake, anthropophagy and the perils of being English. Anything except tattoos.
