How Games Tell Stories

I am working on a semi-regular blog series called How Games Tell Stories. In these posts I will dive into a game and look at the different ways they can communicate with the player. This is the home of the series, and they are listed below, oldest first.

Based in the same world as Fallen London, Sunless Seas is a game where you play as a ships Captain, sailing across the Unterzee looking for adventure, supplies, and Lovecraftian horrors.

FTL: Faster Than Light
