This the third Exceptional Story of Groover's that I've played, and I definitely liked this one more than most Exceptional Stories.
In this one, you become entangled in a slug race which, due to the nature of slugs, takes over a month to finish. In the meantime, you must travel all over London to interfere with the race, investigate the mysterious woman behind the race who always plays tango music, and look into the backgrounds of the competitors.
The game was quite a bit longer than I expected, with an extended opening, three phases of the race with two different activities in each phase, and a long and moving finale.
The rewards were good, the lore about hell and the Carnelian coast was good, and the slugs were excellent. Also, I enjoyed having an option to 'Fight the lettuce'. Definitely recommend this one.
A deal with a devil, cheating rats (like, literally, they're rats), racing slugs. Fallen London's best writing has always come from all the weird ideas it rams together and the latest episode isn't disappointing in that regard. Not the best episode ever, but definitely a good one. There is one mixed drawback/bonus, which is that it's episode a zillion of Fallen London. You don't need to know any of the previous episodes to enjoy it, but it's connected to Fallen London's greater gameplay, which means you'll be hard-pressed to gather up the prerequisite items to have much of an impact on the outcome if you haven't played for at least a little bit to get your basic economy set up. That'll only take you, like, two or three days, though, and if even that is too much hassle, you can always just let the story unfold without affecting its outcome much one way or another.
