Jane Austen Video Game for Those of Us Who Love Romance and RPGs

Illustration for article titled Jane Austen Video Game for Those of Us Who Love Romance and RPGs

From Ever, Jane: The Virtual World of Jane Austen's KickStarter page:"In the virtual world of Jane Austen, it is not about kill or be killed, but invite and be invited with gossip our weapon of choice." I love video games where I get to murder everyone, but this sounds like fun, too.

More from KickStarter:

Ever, Jane is a virtual world that allows people to role-play in Regency Period England. Similar to traditional role playing games, we advance our character through experience, but that is where the similarities end. Ever, Jane is about playing the actual character in the game, building stories. Our quests are derived from player's actions and stories. And we gossip rather than swords and magic to demolish our enemies and aid our friends.

DISCUSSION

Hey all! I am a Media Studies student at UC Berkeley and am writing a paper about Jezebel. I am looking at how people take part in participatory media culture, and the impact and meaning of site like Jezebel. I need to interview people who use this site, and one person who actually contributes the content (cough cough *Laura Beck*) Please let me know if you may be willing to answer a few questions and help me out with this project! I can do interviews over the phone or via email. Reply to this and we can figure out what works best for you!

Thank you thank you!
