We are admittedly not gamers, so the fact that there was a Jane Austen-themed online role-playing game is news to us.
Our late realization of it doesn’t have much practical meaning, though, because we learned about it in a post about its demise.
Literary Hub explains that Ever, Jane was funded through a Kickstarter in 2013 and intended to do a full launch in 2020.
According to the game’s Facebook page, some 90 percent of survey respondents who said they’d be willing to subscribe did not, in fact, subscribe.
Without a viable way to fund the server costs, Ever, Jane had to pull the plug — at least until someone buys the game.
In case you’re curious about what you missed (or what you might want to fund?), Lit Hub reminisces about what made Ever, Jane special.
