We’re Failbetter Games, developers of Fallen London, Dragon Age: The Last Court and now Sunless Sea - ask us anything!
We're Failbetter Games, an indie games studio in London. We’re best known for our work on interactive narrative. We made Fallen London, a browser game about a Victorian London dragged underground by bats, and Dragon Age: The Last Court with Bioware.
And now we’ve made Sunless Sea, a nautical, story-driven roguelike available on GOG and Steam. We think it’s unique in the way it combines a complex story (~250k words) with roguelike elements (permadeath, a map that changes each time you play, and a legacy system that unlocks benefits for future captains). We’re releasing the finished version this evening at 5:30pm GMT (25 minutes away at time of posting!).
Ask us about early access, indie gaming, interactive storytelling, our other projects - or really, almost anything!
[Edit] Excellent questions so far, delicious friends! We're knocking off for the night, but we'll be around over the weekend to answer more. Thanks and thanks for supporting our games!
