Alexis Kennedy, the founder of Failbetter Games and BioWare's guest writer, made it pretty clear he was working on the yet unannounced Dragon Age 4 in an earlier interview with Eurogamer. Things got pretty quiet after that, until recently, he spoke to PC Gamer, elaborating on his involvement in the project. Even so, he remained rather tight-lipped and simply promised that those of us familiar with Fallen London and Sunless Sea should immediately recognize his particular brand of oddness in a certain part of the game that revolves around some previously neglected bit of the Dragon Age lore.
See for yourself:
"I was given considerable creative freedom to work on a particular bit of the lore, which I think is a bit of the lore that people might guess that I would be drawn to. I suspect that when the project that was described reaches the light of day—which another writer has taken over and will do a lot more work to make it their own—people will probably look and say: yes, that's obviously the Kennedy bit."
Beyond that, Kennedy remains expectedly tight-lipped. Speaking directly to the so-called "Kennedy bit", though, he expects those well acquainted with the oddness of his past Failbetter works to feel at home.
He adds: "Unless it's ironed out by the challenges and vicissitudes of AAA production, a part of the game will immediately look familiar to anyone who's played Fallen London and Sunless Sea. There will definitely be that oddness visible in there."
