Unifying a divided people is often done by finding a common enemy. I just hope that the enemy is real and not some phantom dreamed up like with so many tyrants of the past...

Looking forward to the stats on who got how many votes. The survey that was going around indicated a fairly tight race.

We won't be able to announce a release date until quite close to the time, unfortunately; releasing on consoles is quite different to us merrily pressing the button for ourselves on Steam! But work continues and we will have news soon. :)

At last, a Mayor with true vision. A vision that can see who the enemies of our fair London is, and is willing to act against them. The first Mayor not to ignore the half of our lives we spend asleep!

While I love to hear of the folx in Fallen London and the rise of the Viscountess, is there any news of the Sunless Skies chartered by our friends in locomotion? Perhaps an update on the release of the Sovereign Edition?

I still have the "A Free Gift 1" quality, but I already talked to the Viscountess. Is it impossible to get the election gift now?
