Ever, Jane’s lead developer is building a most unusual MMO

    
31

Have you heard about Ever, Jane and thought to yourself, “Who would make this kind of MMO?” Well, now you can meet the creator herself, Judy Tyrer, as she participates in an hour-long interview with Obsolete Gamer.

Tyrer confesses to being a lifelong gamer who built up experience at companies such as Sony Online Entertainment before embarking on her Jane Austen-themed game. In the interview she discusses how she cut her teeth on the old PLATO network terminals, how she rejects being a “statistic” as a female developer, and how she lives as not only a gamer but a gamer parent.

Ever, Jane is currently on its 1.5.1 release and is planning on a 2016 launch.

This is not a game I would play. However, I am ecstatic about this game because it’s something I think a lot of people WOULD play. Also, I really like this developer and wish her all the success in the world.

I’m seeing this game as a form of Risk or even Diplomacy. This will be tactics and strategy, and manipulation. It’s warfare. I’m intrigued to see a thinking person’s MMO. I’m even a little afraid of it.

This is absolutely not even slightly the sort of game I’d even give the time of day, but I like that it exists. I want to see it do well in it’s niche :)

Not my ideal game, but I crowdfunded it- we need more unique MMOs out there and this one is supremely unique!

Shienne Awww, Emma is not the place to start with Jane Austen.  ;)  I recommend Pride and Prejudice for folks to read first.

I tried the MMO way back when it was in early development but had real problems with the game not running well on my computer. I fully intended to come back to it, though.  I’ll be giving it another go!

This game is oddly enough on my list.  I like the action based/themepark/sandbox MMO as much as any guy, but if you can release a game that replaces combat of action with combat of communication and words and do so effectively, I am so in!  I want to become lost in regency England, lets do this!

I have less than zero interest in this game.  But, go for it, Judy!  To each, their own.

Fascinating, I might not be my thing, but knowing it’s going to be something that exists is a refreshing.
