I must confess, I have avoided Facebook games. I ready don’t have enough hours in the day to get done everything I need to do.
BUT this one has me tempted. Lauren Miller posts a great overview of the game. What do you think, any takers?
Jane Austen Game Arrives on Facebook
September 10, 2012 | Posted by Lauren Miller
My goodness, what newfangled notions this BBC has of engaging readers!
As I sit at my writing desk, I turned to my dictionary to query the correct spelling of Hunsford, the dear little parish of my friend, Mrs. Collins, and what should I see in the margins of the page?
Twas an advertisement for that lady writer, Miss Austen. She seems to have misplaced her creations who have crossed over into one another’s stories of all things. Miss Austen needs to keep her characters in check or who knows what manner of mischief they will find themselves in.
I suppose the only Christian thing to do would be to assist Miss Austen in the recovery of her characters and set things back to rights. But my heavens! It’s a mystery indeed…
Rogues and Romance is the latest hidden objects game on Facebook with a twist — it stars your favorite characters from Jane Austen’s beloved novels.
The game structure is similar in design to other hidden object games (ex: Blackwood and Bell Mysteries). In order to solve the game, you must complete all the mini-quests which represent stages of progress in the game (ex: like chapters of a story).
