    The character designs there feel kind of bland to me, but the sprite work looks sick enough to make up for it, and WayForward gameplay is generally super solid

    It's once again election season in Fallen London! They'll be unveiling the candidates over the weekend, and the first is:



    Mrs. Plenty runs the Circus in Fallen London and is definitely not a reformed cultist who once looked for the hidden identity of a betrayed spirit of vengeance

    Also, they're still doing Exceptional Stories for people who sign up for the monthly subscription. The last one included a lovely hog named Priscilla, a visit to an exclusive gala held in a winery based on mushrooms, a flu that forces you to rhyme, and ancient sidereal engines kept sedated by liquid sadness

    pffft

    more seriously, FL as a whole is kind of on the backburner while Failbetter focuses on Sunless Skies. Can't say I'm too happy about it but they're a small indie studio and Skies is their hottest item right now so I can't begrudge them too much for centering their effort there

    Aren't you sharing in a unique experience with me that makes ambitions rather impossible?

    Oh that character is...well not dead I guess, they're somethin though. I think.

    But yes since that whole situation came to a head I just harp on the ambition storylines never getting finished out of principle

    I didn't put any of the real...weird...shit in my journal but spoilers abound in that there. Man the writing was both good and just like laser focused on my personal brains, the Mr. Eaten stuff was just so fantastic.

    I don't think they have updated my Ambition in 5+ years at this point?

    At this point I really just want to finish that because I put so much time into it, and then Seek the Name

    There is a not small part of me that could really get back into the never ending cycle of "visit the Irrigo cave, go to sea, come back and visit court, trade out a few entire wine cellars, stage a heist, work on my novel, upgrade some item chains, *REPEAT*" while I eke out niche items like searing enigmas, but it's just always in the back of my head that there's a boundary wall to the story that I'm going to find the edge of that just kinda spoils it for me. If there was some more completed work around the ambitions, or maybe even an ending or two that didn't involve watching myself turn into an abomination, I'd be all about it today. I wish there was something along the lines of a "go south" or "go east" quest chain, honestly. But yeah, the new hotness is what seems to be making them money, and I appreciate what they produce too much to hold that against them

    I suppose wanting more plot is what the premium stories are for. I do plan on checking those out some day.

    Worth the price? I shouldn't fuckin think so go buy a book maybe, I dunno

  • mrpakumrpaku Registered User regular
    I bought a handful and they were pretty good (some better than others)! But if I'm gonna be dropping $20, $60, $100, I'd rather put that money towards real literature or a fully realized and accessible game

  • It had a friend halfway into the game and I wanted them to try Flint so I got the big gift of fake currency for them and it still wasn't enough fake currency for Flint so I said FUCK is what I said

    I literally own all the stories

    Some of them several times over because I wanted to see the different endings

    I'm a dumbass is my point

    How long are the exceptional stories? $25 for Flint does seem unlikely to be a lot of bang for your buck, but $7 could maybe be worth it.

    it changes from story to story honestly. I would hazard they average at around 70 actions total each, if you dont repeat actions

    I'm super thankful for Indie Winter being able to keep their business model afloat, because I am a *giant* fan of the content. But my own economic situation lets me justify a pretty sparse amount of games at a time, so I have to choose my battles carefully and I just can't go month-to-month, which is kinda their bag. If they ever found a way to say "Here's Fallen London, all of it and you own it forever...say, $200, maybe even $250 for the *ultimate* edition", I would scrimp and save and make it mine

    I've been an exceptional friend generally any time I've played for any length of time, but I just can't see myself going back until they finish Nemesis up

    Given Shaefer's waffling on the question "should your employees unionize?" I'm not surprised.
