Thirty years ago, London was stolen. Now it rests on the shore of the Unterzee, that old dark ocean under the world. Hell is close, immortality is cheap, and the screaming has largely stopped…

 

“Welcome. Delicious friend.”

“The bestest best words in all of gaming.”

“Superlative… every bit as vividly drawn as the worlds built by Rockstar in Red Dead Redemption, or Irrational in Bioshock, or Supergiant in Bastion.”

Tom Chick

“This is hands-down one of the best browser games we’ve ever played.”

Choose your path through the city

Welcome to a dark and hilarious Victorian-Gothic underworld, where every choice has a consequence, from the style of your hat to the price of your soul.

Creep, coerce, brawl and swindle your way through the gaslit streets of Fallen London. Go mudlarking off Ladybones Road, eavesdrop in the ragged old market of Spite or arm-wrestle in Watchmaker’s Hill – wheresoever you roam, you’ll take your chances and shape your fate.

Collect whispered secrets and trade magnificent jewels to further your cause, whilst picking your way through the rats and filth of the fallen city (or embracing the putrid glory of it all). Choose your allies and your path carefully though – after all you never know who you might run into down that dark alley, or what poor soul might run into you…

Meet the locals

It would do the population of Fallen London the most heinous disservice to describe them as colourful. However, from The Cheery Man (who is anything but cheerful), to Madame Shoshana, the Clay Men, Mr Eaten and the Bohemian Sculptress, your journey will certainly be all the more ‘interesting’ for meeting them.

That’s not to mention your fellow travellers in the city. Adventure, fight and trade with your peers; marry, even – if you’re that way inclined.

Gameplay

Explore the immersive and darkly delightful world of Fallen London in a free, browser-based, literary RPG of sorts. As much for those who love to read as those who love to play, experience a unique narrative that evolves with every choice you make. Define your destiny through the stories you embark on and the character you cultivate.

There’s a whole world of opportunity waiting for you beyond the iron bars of New Newgate prison. Who are you going to be?

Enter Fallen London
