It’s time to head back to 1862, and date some people who may well be murderers. Failbetter Games have announced, a romantic visual novel set in the universe. It’s a prequel to all of Failbetter’s games, including Fallen London itself, as well as and , and follows a group of lodgers in a boarding house just months after Victorian London has gone underground. Ah, trapped in a creepy underground building together, what better place for love to blossom, eh?
“Players will get to spend more up-close and personal time with a few well-known characters and play through a story that’s more centered on individual relationships,” Short added. “We’re building a story that doesn’t require any prior knowledge of the setting, but still has secrets that may surprise veterans.”
Failbetter are setting up a Kickstarter campaign to fund Mask Of The Rose next year, and they plan on releasing it in 2022.
They mention they’re working on another new game, too, which will take place in a new setting. They’re quiet on the rest of the details, though, so we’ll have to wait a little longer to find out more.
