This game is one of the most atmospheric games I have played. It's a great mix of Victorian Gothic, Steampunk and Lovecraftian spooks.
It is also really hard until you get the hang of it. But hey, even dying/going insane/dying in a different way/??? is fun, it's part of the experience and adds to the whole aesthetic.
Now, this game is slow, but that is not a bad thing. There are thousands of words of lovely, crafted text, that tell the story in a unique, entertaining, and occasionally very funny way. Exploration really is fruitful, it may not seem so at first glance, but the fact that it earns you cash really gives a legitimate incentive to act how a sea captain actually should act.
The combat is ok, there is definitely a strategy to it, and relies on things such as visibility, line of sight, etc.

Overall this is a great game for those who appreciate beautiful fiction-writing and exploring strange and inventive lands.
