I love the world.
Not my normal type of game but this looks interesting.
Same group made Sunless Sea and Fallen London. Fallen London is a free browser game and seems mostly text and art based. Sunless sea seems similar to Sunless Sky.
Anybody try any of these? Is the actual game-play halfway decent?
I enjoyed Sunless Seas, but it definitely isn't for everyone. It is a highly atmospheric survival and exploration game that requires some patience. It is also story-rich and reminds me of the old Choose Your Own Adventure Games (if you are old enough to remember those).
Sunless Seas certainly doesn't hold your hand. I had my own little sea journel to keep track of various ports for what they do and sell. I think the story and economic pacing could have been a been quicker. Part of the problem is that if you die, you restart the story with a new sailor, which was a major complaint.
I hear the Sunless Skies fixes a lot of the weaknesses of the first game. I own the sequel, but I've been waiting for the Sovereign Edition to actually play it (which was announced a long while ago).
