, I was iffy when I first played it but now with all this time, it feels good. I got used to the slow pondering speed of your usual vessel, the so-so combat, stat checks and the slowness of it. Really slow. But the atmosphere, variety of things to do, to explore, to check out is really high up there. I got caught up in it and it got me interested in both Fallen London and Sunless Skies. But it reached a fervor when I was able to get an ending, bar some needed items. A more... unorthodox ending, not an ambition you pick at the start but it was mine. I was hunting for what I needed, planned it all out, frantically, executed it, and it felt good. It felt great!
Flawed for sure, but if it wasn't for the genre of the month, I probably wouldn't have picked it back up. Even feel like trying out another captain right after beating it.
It's really bloody good if you're into this sort of thing. This month made me discover that I am.
