Are Those Wedding Bells I Hear?

“Austen Translation” is a satirical strategy game set in the world of Jane Austen—a tongue-in-cheek riff on caustic rivalries, appalling preconceptions of the roles of women and men, and, of course, the unending quest to marry well. In “Austen Translation,” the player takes on the role of an innocent young woman who has to convince a wealthy bachelor to marry her so she can escape a future of poverty and destitution. By making strategic choices that affect your stats, and the stats of your rivals, you'll alter the suitors' perceptions, all in pursuit of a big . . . thick . . . wallet.

But this isn't your high school English teacher's Jane Austen. Our game takes Jane's genteel brand of satire and sends it over the top, creating an Austen experience which has gone completely off the rails. It’s an experience rife with dropping pianos, outrageous rumors, and mercilessly manipulated rivalries. A Jane for the digital ages, as it were.

FEATURES:
  • Hybrid gameplay that combines elements of a strategy game and a visual novel
  • Fully customizable game avatars
  • Randomized chapters and plot twists create a unique story experience for each playthrough
  • Zany, oversized storylines set in a Jane Austen universe
  • Quirky paper-doll illustration style
  • Madcap multiplayer functionality pits you against up to four human opponents

Austen Translation is being developed by Worthing & Moncrieff, the creators of the puzzle-mystery
A Matter of Murder which was featured at a number of festivals including the Google Play Indie Game Festival and the Boston Festival of Indie Games.

I loved the last game these guys made. Simple but effective puzzle mechanic and a cool style.

you're serious right?

Points for the originality, but the trailer is annoying because of that voice, and the graphics, while they don't need to be realistic or amazing, are too empty beside the simplistic yet captivating characters - a trait shared with your previous game, I see (so much... white... @__@). A little more detail and color would be better. Still upvoted because of the fresh idea.

The amount of blank white space in the back-ground makes this look unfinished. The trees and other things in the background are a nice addition, but not enough to change that.

I LOVE strategy games, especially with some multiplayer component. This looks like a really neat take on that style of game with some fresh ideas on theming and story. Looking forward to it!

The blend of literature, often academically studied lit in high school with gaming looks awesome
