No, this is not a joke. Ever, Jane, a Jane Austen MMO, has been funded on Kickstarter, reaching its goal of $100,000.
Ever, Jane from 3 Turn Productions will be something completely different from your typical MMO. Needless to say, there won’t be any battles or bosses. Instead of the typical attributes, players will raise “Personality Traits” through daily activities such as gossiping.
Yeah, the game mechanics are all still a bit fuzzy right now and it could be pretty boring for some gamers, but I’m personally interested to see how this game pans out. Could be pretty fun to get dressed up and go to a ball or two.
A prototype of Ever, Jane, which is currently slated to be completed in Jan 2016, can be found here.
