IN THE NEWS: Alexis Kennedy on ‘Cultist Simulator’ and expanding the narrative in video game design

Alexis Kennedy, known for his out-of-the-box approach to video game design, has been finding ways to reinvent the narrative in the video gaming industry for a decade. 

Kennedy’s latest project, co-founded with Lottie Bevan, is Weather Factory, an indie game development studio that focuses precisely on experimenting with narrative – a mission that Weather Factory has achieved impressively in its celebrated Cultist Simulator.

As designer, writer, and entrepreneur, Kennedy brings his experience as founder of Failbetter Games, through which he created Fallen London and Sunless Sea, two products that garnered both critical praise and commercial success, and which have become influential icons in the video gaming industry.
