A new era in actions

February 5, 2012 ·

The Festival of Endless Actions is over. The bunting is down, the hangovers are fading, and the most dedicated players have nearly caught up on their sleep. We ran it for two reasons. One was, of course, to draw people back to the game and have a bit of a spring celebration. The other was […]

The Okapi Conundrum

January 26, 2012 ·

Today sees another content release, with a big pile of changes and enhancements to the economy. This is the next step in a long-term plan, and I wanted to talk a bit about what we’re up to. Nearly three years ago I sat down at the PC in my spare room and started writing and […]

December 18, 2011 ·

So we’ve provided a central hub for people to […]

November 24, 2011 · Failbetter Fallen London

Before we start with the questions, who’d like some new content? Ever since the conclusion of our initial University story players have asked to return to the misty courtyards of academia.

You Asked, We Answer: Part 1

November 18, 2011 ·

Here’s the first. Daniel Peter Turner-Chapman asked: Do the mysteries surrounding Neathy history and life have solutions already mapped out? Can […]

The Natures of Treasures

November 14, 2011 ·

Another new feature for all you delightfully appetising Bazaar people. The inventory on the Me tab looks different: tidier. More flavoursome. We’ve separated a number of items into categories. Some, like Wines or Rubbery or Mysteries, will be familiar… others tease changes yet to come. It’s all part of a long process of tweaking and […]

The Foreign Office, and more…

October 18, 2011 ·

Is it quiet in here? It’s a bit quiet, isn’t it? We haven’t added any content to Echo Bazaar for a few weeks, because we’ve been working like dextrous little rats on a couple of really big new sections. The first of these, the Foreign Office, will be released later this week, and we’ll be […]

A far crossroads

July 27, 2011 ·

We’ve always said that Echo Bazaar will provide a satisfying conclusion to your personal stories, as well as the grand saga of the Neath itself. We don’t want just to drag on, or peter out.  Last week at the writers’ meeting we refined the road-map for that commitment. Currently, the plan is to raise the […]
