I got frustrated with playing Fallen London, because of the time mechanics as well as a bit of feeling lost trying to figure out what to do. It’s awesome in many ways. I backed Sunless Sea because it looked like it distilled a lot of what was awesome about Fallen London (tags and the way story-related descriptors change things, the writing and atmosphere) in a focused way – with the added bonus that I love exploration games.
I just downloaded the Early Access release from the Humble store and started it up really quick to check it out, and I’m a little in love already. I usually don’t play EA games that much, but I think it’ll be hard not to play this one tonight. I’ve been looking forward to it too much.
