Hello, delicious friends! You might know us from Sunless Sea, the exploration RPG in which you lose your mind and eat your crew.
You might call Fallen London the text adventure prequel to Sunless Sea: it’s almost 1.5 million words of the same kind of darkly funny stories, and as of right now it’s available to download for free on iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch!
Things you can do in Fallen London:
- Run a literary salon
- Learn the incendiary language of suns
- Marry a squid-person
- Consume hallucinogenic honey and mushroom wine
- Breed abominable animals
- Behave so disgracefully that you have to flee to the colonies and write pleading letters to your former friends
Since our last AMA (on Sunless Sea’s launch day), we’ve grown from a team of seven to a team of 15, moved offices to a converted Victorian church, sold 350,000 copies of Sunless Sea and begun work on the Zubmariner expansion, which is due out in Autumn.
We'd like to release an Android version of Fallen London, too. You can sign up to our dedicated email list to get news about it.
Edit: What fun! We'll be around later on this evening, UK time, so keep the questions coming. :)
Edit2: Thank you everyone for your insightful questions! We hope you're enjoying Fallen London on your iDevice of choice, and if you have any more feedback we'd appreciate receiving it to: [email protected] We hang around r/fallenlondon and r/sunlesssea too, so see you there!
