The moment to moment gameplay isn't especially exciting, but the stories in the different ports you visit are great. The guy who wrote Horizon Signal, the Worm-In-Waiting story, in Stellaris wrote for Sunless Sea as well.

Finished some game called Afterparty. It was pretty good. One of those games you play for the narrative, not the gameplay. But it was a treat.

Yeah, it could have used a touch more time. Especially with the graphics. Lot of clipping. But it wasn't too bad a bother.

How long ago did you try playing the game? 3 years ago? Because that's the only time you would have ever been directed to survey your own sun. It's literally not a thing in the game anymore.
