In today’s Independency, we take a little side trip from the planned topic to a little game called Fallen London. In it players can dance with devils and much more. Find out more about Fallen London and then let us know what you think in the comments.
A browser-based title set within the subterranean reaches of what may have once been a proud English city, Fallen London is a little bit of Neil Gaiman’s Neverwhere, a lot of Lovecraftian mythos, a touch of the creators’ personal brand of humor and a whole lot of good writing. It’s not the kind of game you keep on plugging at and, in all honesty, it barely constitutes as an MMO(your friends will only play a vague supporting role here). Nonetheless, Fallen London deserves playing. In an era informed with throwaway games and questionable writing, Failbetter Games have done something than a lot of big-budget titles have failed to accomplish: build a world worth discovering.
