…a successful experiment in engaging players by being extremely horrible to them.

Fallen London is a weird case in many ways. It’s a strongly narrative free-to-play game; it’s made by an indie studio that also makes premium games; it drew the attention and support of Jason Kapalka, one of the PopCap founders, to make a mobile port from web to iOS. I’d like to talk through the history of FL, how this very unusual game evolved, how the studio has benefitted from its odd trajectory, the cult impact it’s had and the other games it’s spawned!
