Sunless Skies: Felined Eccentric and Queer Rep

Sunless Skies is a gothic horror computer roleplaying game with a focus on exploration and exquisite storytelling. I was initially contracted to provide consultation on queer representation in the game through my involvement with Queerly Represent Me.
