Ever, Jane: The Jane Austen MMORPG

by Shane McGlaun

Video games have been made to cover just about every genre you can think of. A new video game has surfaced on Kickstarter that covers one unusual genre that I’ve never thought about. This MMORPG has nothing to do with exploring dungeons or killing fellow players –  Ever, Jane promises to bring players into the virtual world of Jane Austen.

The game focuses on gossiping and eventually attending balls. Ever, Jane puts players into the Regency Period in England. Players will try to win the sympathy of Lizzie Bennet by telling lies about rivals. The game has a system that will notify other players if they’re being talked about and allow them to attempt to find the person spreading lies. If you’re discovered there will be consequences.

The prototype of the game allows players to explore a 3D village. While there are plans for significant expansion, currently there are no balls, dinner parties, or mini games and players can’t travel between villages.

The Ever, Jane Kickstarter project is an attempt to raise the funds needed to add that expanded capability. A pledge of $10 or more will get backers access to the game world during development. The developers are hoping to raise $100,000 and have raised a bit more than $23,000 with 27 days to go.

You can download the working prototype of the game here.
