Torn between your loves of Jane Austen and MMORPG? Worry no longer

It is a truth universally acknowledged that video gamers love Jane Austen novels. The Kickstarter campaign that was aiming to raise enough money to create an online multi-player video game in which players inhabit lives of Jane Austen’s Georgian England and attend fancy balls and whisper saucy gossip about the town’s eligible bachelors … well, they’ve reached their goal, and sometime soon, YOU can be Mr. Darcy or Catherine Moreland or Elinor Dashwood, etc. It’s sort of like The Sims, but it would more likely be called Society and Dissimulation. See the video below for a sneak preview of what it will be like when massive multiplayer online role playing games and Jane Austen at last converge.
