Jane Austen, Video Game Heroine


We’ve seen Pride and Prejudice and Zombies, and even an XXX version of the novel. Hell, Jane Austen even has her own fight club. So it’s not entirely surprising to see Forbes report that she’s now been transformed into a video game heroine. Designed by an app developer called Feel Every Yummy, Word Fighter pits friends or strangers on mobile devices against one another in a race to spell words quickly, using a Boggle-style board. The developers characterize their Jane as “a bad-ass version of Princess Peach… At a glance, she appears to be a very prim and proper lady — as you can see in her portrait — but when it’s time to throw down, she’s ready to destroy you.” Other familiar-sounding characters include J.D., Agatha, and Edgar. Watch a video of Word Fighter in action after the jump.
