Delicious friends! We’re absolutely delighted to let you know that the Fallen London website redesign is now officially live!
After much tinkering, two betas and lots of darkdrop coffee for our steadfast developers, Fallen London has received its well overdue update. Our main aims of the redesign were to:
- Bring Fallen London up to HTTPS for additional security, as well as making a few tweaks to the backend so that it’s easier for both our writers and programmers to continue adding delicious content
- Update the visual design of the site to bring it from 2009 to 2018
- Improve the overall mobile play experience and responsiveness of the site
We appreciate this is a big change, especially with players that have been visiting Fallen London each day, year on year, but we hope that we’ve done just the right amount to make it look modern and appealing to new audiences while also solving some of the issues that players have long held, especially when playing on mobile.
These updates will in turn allow us to bring in new people into our Fallen London community and – crucially – mean we’re only maintaining one product (we recently retired our mobile apps to this end).
We’ll be monitoring the site over the coming months to ensure everything is working as intended and that the user-experience is smooth.
If you notice any bugs or features that are confusing, please email us directly at firstname.lastname@example.org so we can get our programmers’ eyes on it at the earliest convenience. These are thing things we’ll be looking into first.
If you have general feedback, then please direct it to email@example.com. As a small team that handles all our support in-house, it’s incredibly helpful for us to receive input through these filters—and allows us to help everyone faster, too.
There’s also a handy Website Redesign FAQ if you have further questions.
We’re so excited to finally share the redesign and believe it’s going to help our Neathy community thrive!
