Failbetter Games are an indie game studio responsible for Sunless Sea, Sunless Skies and browser based game Fallen London.
I sat down and spoke to Hannah Flynn, Olivia Wood and Lesleyann White about life in an indie dev studio, the importance of building a community and a fanbase around your games and paying attention to feedback. We also discuss their love of games past and present, the challenges of making gaming accessible and the state of representation and diversity in gaming today.
This was a really fun episode to make. Hannah, Olivia and Les are a fantastic, riotous trio, and we are treated to some excellent insight into indie game dev. It was a privilege.
