Since leaving Failbetter, Alexis Kennedy has been working on a new project, Cultist Simulator: Behold Our End. It's exactly what it sounds like.

Alexis Kennedy, July 12, 2017 wrote:
It’s a game of apocalypse and yearning – a digital narrative boardgame about trying to destroy the world, but also about the reasons you’d want to do that, and the things that are missing from the world.

…if you want a game where you can paint nightmarish visions or crush investigators or betray your fellow cultists or feed unnamable hungers or travel behind the walls of the world or retire to live a cosy life with your children or drown the cities in terrible light

…if you fancy something a little like Fallen London without the F2P and grind

…or if you wanted more of the Uttermost East content in Sunless Sea, or the Mr Eaten content in Fallen London

… then pop your name into the mailing list, and I’ll tell you about the Kickstarter when it’s ready. And also about my collaborators, about the Cultist Simulator Perpetual Edition, about Noon, and about the journal of Teresa Galmier.

The kickstarter is tentatively scheduled to begin in September. There's also a free, very basic Alpha available for download on the website.

It's been dormant for a while (since until a week or so ago there was very little activity in development) but there is a fledgling thread for it over here as well. smile

The Kickstarter is definitely worth keeping an eye on, even for FL-only fans - Alexis floated the idea that one of the reward tiers might be him answering any question (NDAs notwithstanding) about any game he's worked on.

Alexis will resume work on it in August, he's currently occupied with a stint over at Bioware, IIRC.

I like the concept of the game, and the Alpha seems promising. But that's about all it seems, since I can't get past the first 10 minutes of play because eventually the b____y game ends up freezing or getting stuck.
To anyone playing the alpha: take extreme care not to drop the cards over any of the token fields, else you'll be unable to pick up or drag cards anymore and restarting will be the only remainder option.

Probably he's sometimes like Oatmeal (the panel above the share ID) so I'll just wait here for more newsletters from TWF. Even if it's not a fascinating NL, Alexis sure offers an interesting palette of subjects; specially that tween where he mentioned John Carpenter (worth checking him out)!

This has now been confirmed.

I am now flirting with the idea of paying the hundred quid KS price to get an answer to one question. If I can think of a worthwhile one. (Any ernest but broke fans who have a question they're dying to ask?)

"Linux version, barely tested" has the same rhytm in my mind's ear as "baby shoes, never worn", so of course I tried it out. It actually turned on, which is more than I can say about most Linux alpha-version games, and seems fascinating but...... has anyone else found the interface maddening (not in a good, exciting way) and prone to cluttering? I found myself constantly trying to zoom out to see a bigger fragment of the board.

Genuinely not sure if it's the UI design or me doing something wrong.

Is A Paramount Presense in game and can it be accesed by people? People have kinda given up on ever finding it.

I will accept all actions, though I hold the right to refuse for my own reasons. However, if you explain WHY you send me a harmful action like Loitering or Dantes,And I feel the reason good, I will consider it more. http://fallenlondon.storynexus.com/Profile/Kylestien

Alternatively, how does one become A Paramount Presence within Fallen London? If he says it's impossible that answers the question, if he says how that gives the path if it is possible.

Paramount Presence is already in the game, or something like it anyway.
Try overcapping a stat to 215 and check the Unfinished Business of that stat

There's absolutely no evidence yet that Paramount Presence exists in the game, let alone that the new additions to Unfinished Business lead to it.

However, *if* it exists, the new additions are probably the most likely path to it.

It's very likely a step to it, but it's probably the first of many

Alexis wrote he'll answer LORE. Don't think this qualifies...
Also, what new addition at stat 215?

Here's one that's been bugging me.
What WAS the name? It was Mr Candles. It currently is Mr eaten.
But what was their name before the first city fell?
Before the Bazaar even entered the Neath?

For all of the Seeking Mr. Eaten's name, I don't think we ever find out what the name actually is.
Or was, considering circumstance.

If you overcap a main stat to 215 (i.e. use up 15 Notability), then there's a new option in the Unifinished Business corresponding to that stat.


See this thread.
