The Lady Afterwards hits print-ready, and we dive deep into BOOK OF HOURS’ music.
The Lady Afterwards has a release date! Thursday 21st October for the limited physical edition, and Thursday 18th November for the unlimited digital version.
Imagine a dystopian future where big corporations sue other big corporations over mobile games, where everyone and their mum is making a PC game, and where eSports makes more money than any of us despite nobody really knowing what it’s for. You’re a small indie dev stuck in the middle of all this. How can you stand out and get noticed, in this picaresque world?
We ran our first playtest of The Lady Afterwards, and I learned many useful things: we probably need two sets of dice; nobody knows anything about Alexandria; and it actually really isn’t annoying to listen to 1920s music for four hours.
It’s H. P. Lovecraft’s birthday today – the father of weird fiction, the long-faced gentleman responsible for overprevalence of squid in cosmic horror – so we’re running a GIVEAWAY!
The Lady Afterwards is not just ‘Lottie and Alexis write a CoC scenario for lols’.
All hail the subversive surrealism of European liberals!
Forge-Long or Lantern-Long?
An update on the controversies of 2019. [UPDATE:Failbetter still haven’t denied or contested any of this.
They did admit over email there was a ‘procedural issue’ (‘criminal negligence’, tomato tomahto). We began negotiations but when Lottie (once again) raised the issue of them harassing her they (once again) stopped responding and (once again) started going after us on social media. More details below.]
O Map of Wisdom, behold that I know some Ouranoscopy. And lo the Wisdoms will answer, did you want to advance along the Horomachistry line, or were you looking to improve that other Wisdom? And you might answer, that other Wisdom, cos it’s something to do with Edge and Lantern and AK won’t tell me what it is yet but it sounds like a gas.
