Failbetter Games is famously known for their amazing storytelling and narratives with their big hit Fallen London. Back in 2013, the developers wanted to expand their storytelling and game design with the kickstarter for Sunless Sea. With it, they combined their knack for storytelling with real-time design, and ended up with a polarizing game. Lessons learned, they’re trying it again with Sunless Skies, and they’re getting ever closer to that magic combination of storytelling and gameplay.
