Extended Play #2 - The two faces of Sunless Skies

May 2021

The history and analysis of Sunless Skies’ hybrid gameplay

Extended Play is a Youtube Channel in which I publish videogame analysis. The target audiences are regular and passionate players, and game designers.

This second video is about Sunless Skies and its gameplay, alternating between a textual adventure game and a real-time 2D exploration game. Through Failbetter Games’s history, the game’s developer, I explore the way it led to this singular gameplay and the resulting experience.

The video is entirely subtitled in french (english ones incoming).
