Have you ever wanted to manipulate some of Jane Austen’s endings? [if not, would we have any sequels, or choose to read them?!] – Do you think Elizabeth should have married Mr. Collins, leaving Mr. Darcy to the likes of Miss Bingley? – or should Elinor have married Colonel Brandon, leaving Marianne to pine her life away and Lucy to Edward after all?
Well, here might be your chance. There is a new game to download called Matches and Matrimony: A Pride & Prejudice Tale – I haven’t yet played it, but for $6.99 it might be the perfect antidote to another cold winter day – or one can just try it for an hour for free. At least there are no flesh-eating zombies in the mix, as on the iphone app that I play periodically if stuck in a line somewhere [though we rarely have lines of any kind in Vermont, except perhaps at the DMV, and why I still do not get past the zombie who eats Elizabeth in the first sequence…]
You can find the Matches and Matrimony game here at downloadgames24.com
From their website:
Help a Bennet sister find a husband as you take a starring role in Jane Austen’s most popular novels in Matches & Matrimony! Will you pursue Mr. Bingley, whose good nature has already endeared him to your sister, or perhaps Mr. Darcy, the famous protagonist from Pride and Prejudice? The narrative of Matches & Matrimony comes from the combining of 3 different novels, allowing you to create new storylines from Miss Austen’s most famous works!
Have fun and let me know how you fare… [but please don’t have Elizabeth marry Mr. Collins! – that would create an entire world shift of too immense a proportion to bear …]
