Ever, Jane is an on-line role-playing game set in the virtual world of Regency England and the works of Jane Austen. Unlike many multi-player games, it’s not about kill or be killed but invite or be invited. Gossip is our weapon of choice. Instead of raids, we will have grand balls. Instead of dungeons, we will have dinner parties.
While I support this in concept, a $100,000 game these days is likely to be really, really shitty in execution.
That said, a collection of nearly-identical Victorian* ladies and gentlemen moving around like the QWOP dude could be massively entertaining.
* Yes, I know that Jane Austen precedes the Victorian era. But both “Georgian” and “romantic” also have other meanings, so I’m just gonna perpetuate the inaccuracy.
