Fallen London Site Website Redesign Update – 8 June

By Haley Uyrus, June 8, 2018 · Fallen London

It has been an exciting and boisterous week here at Failbetter after having launched the Fallen London website redesign! We’ve received a lot of feedback and joyous squeals from you over the past few days, and we can’t thank you enough for it.

In fact, the amount of people logging on to try out the new site has far exceeded our expectations! As such, we need to do some server work and bug fixes to cater for all the traffic. There are a couple of issues specifically to do with usage and load times that are plaguing quite a few players.

Therefore, this weekend (9-10 June) we’ve decided to point the www.fallenlondon.com URL back to the old site – as we’re not around to handle support over the weekends and we want to make sure all players have the best playing experience possible. If you’re feeling daring and still want to play on the new site, it’ll be available via beta.fallenlondon.com.

Rest assured these issues are at the top of the list and we’re focused on making sure the new site can go live across all the URLs as soon as we’ve squished bugs and straightened kinks. We’ll keep updating these threads as things change.

Also check out the Known Issue thread, which also lists how to report bugs.

Thank you in advance for your patience.

Afraid not. A big part of the reasoning behind retiring the app and making this update is so we're not maintaining more than one product for Fallen London. :)

Question: will the old site be available in an inverse of the current situation, once the main URL is pointed back to the new site? (Similar to old.reddit.com.)

I preffer the ood layout for two reasons. It's convenient having the log out button at the top of the screen, rather than in a drop down menu when I'm out of actions. Also, I play on mobile so I can't really mouse over things to get their descriptio , I have to click and hold until tje tooltip comes up. I don't mind doing that, but when I do this in the new version, I'm told what the opportunity card is called, but nothing else.
