Failbetter Games on Kickstarter with ‘Mask of the Rose’
Friday, February 12, 2021
Failbetter Games has launched a Kickstarter campaign for Mask of the Rose, a romantic visual novel set in the same alternate Victorian-era universe as Fallen London, Sunless Sea, and Sunless Skies. “London has been abruptly transported underground,” explains creative director and lead writer Emily Short. “Parliament has sunk into the Thames; the Queen never appears outside the palace; rats have learned to build machinery. Nothing works the way it used to.”
Art director Paul Arendt describes it as “a chamber piece” that’s “smaller and more focused than Fallen London.” It’s slated for delivery in June 2022.
