Fallen London is a free to play browser based Victorian Gothic text adventure. Their premium subscription service offers a new Exceptional Story to play through each month.
For December 2018 I wrote Daylight: an Exceptional that sees you travel to a mysterious island shrouded in blinding daylight in order to face the monster that haunts it and rescue its stranded architect.
As players’ characters in Fallen London are acclimatized to darkness when they visit Daylight and find it cloaked in artificial brightness and haunted by a threatening force, they experience a new kind of vulnerability. The module explores themes of creativity and inspiration while also reversing typical horror tropes to couch danger in the well lit open and safety in the dark.
