Welcome, [[{{CatchPhrase}} delicious troper]]. '''''Fallen London''''' (formerly '''''Echo Bazaar''''') is a browser game produced by Creator/FailbetterGames. It's set in the eponymous city, a mile underground and a boat down the river from Hell, where people are either piecing together the mystery of what exactly happened, trading souls, or just politely murdering other people. Players start off as prisoners plotting to break out, and after that... they're free to do whatever they want.

* TheTetrisEffect: Subverted InUniverse. After taking a commission to sketch encoded tattoos, your character starts seeing tattoo-code in everything from the false-stars to doilies, and the LemonyNarrator comments "You've been at this too long." And then you stumble across some ''real'' code symbols in back-alley graffiti.

** The wine from the Mrs. Plenty's Carnival can reduce your Nightmare score if you're lucky; if you're unlucky you'll get plumb drunk and raise your Scandal score instead.

** Failbetter Games hinted on Twitter that the "Where You and I Must Go" Exceptional Story contained an easter egg, although it's more of a hidden branch that becomes available only if you do something [[ViolationOfCommonSense truly stupid]] and then something [[VideoGameCrueltyPotential truly cruel]] in response to the consequences of your stupid action.

* WhatYouAreInTheDark: [[spoiler: Near the end of Seeking Mr. Eaten's name, you're given the opportunity to skip the Obscurity sacrifices and gain St. Erzulie's Candle for free. For once, there's no catch: the story continues exactly the same either way, and any qualities indicating that you took the easy way out are hidden even from your profile, so no one will know what you did except you.]]

* FishingMinigame: The Fruits of the Zee Festival event lets you fish for "strange catches" that you can give to the Hooded Lady at the festival in exchange for unique/valuable items at the Wreckers' Cove. Getting the biggest catches to trade for the best cove items requires high Quirks, an assortment of Map items, and the RandomNumberGod's favor.

* DoWellButNotPerfect: The path to becoming an author requires you to create a particular grade of short story in Veilgarden. Making a story of a higher grade is a waste of time and resources, since it only counts that specific type. Getting the unique items during the Fruits of the Zee Festival can be this too, as they each require a certain level of the Picking Through the Wrecker's Cove quality to obtain. That quality is in turned based off the quality of the Strange Catch you turn in to get it, and with high levels in several quirks it becomes very difficult to get a low enough PTtWC quality to get some of the items.
