JANE AUSTEN Gets A MMORPG…Well, Maybe

MMORPGs have a certain connotation when you begin talking about them in non-gaming company. More often than not, the image of a slovenly creature, bent over a computer, covered in the oily residue of leftover chip particles is what pops into the head of anyone not familiar with the actual world of Massively Multiplayer Online Role-Playing Games.

But in this particular Kickstarter campaign, the traditional world of MMORPG is about to get a bit more civilized.

Yeah, we’re heading into Ever, Jane where it is not about “…kill or be killed, but invite and be invited with gossip our weapon of choice”.

That’s right, Austen fans, you are going to be able to spend hours and hours tooling around an English village, manipulating various characters that appeared in Jane Austen’s novels with vicious gossip.

Are you picking up what I’m putting down folks, it a role-playing game about bitchiness….fucking awesome. 

If you are a fan of all things Mr. Darcy and Elizabeth Bennett, then take a look at the video after the break and then, maybe, head on over to the Kickstarter page to take a look at one of the most well-thought out game plans I’ve seen in a long time (as well as some nifty Backer gifts).

And who knows gentlemen, if this gets funded, your girlfriend might actually start to enjoy video games.
