Pride & Prejudice at 200: Want to play a game?

First the webseries, now a game?

Fans everywhere are celebrating Pride & Prejudice’s 200th anniversary today.  By now, of course, you know about The Lizzie Bennet Diaries, the hit webseries adaptation of Pride & Prejudice.  If you don’t, check out the front page of the Arena section of the Wall Street Journal, The Guardian, and the episodes I’ve written.  But if you can’t get enough Jane Austen, I’ve also worked on the game Jane Austen Unbound, and my storyline will go live on February 4th.

Jane Austen Unbound (fka Rogues and Romance) will allow you to play in the Jane Austen universe, when characters from many of her books have gotten loose and are starting to wreak havoc in the wrong storylines.  Your mission, should you choose to accept it, is to bring Elizabeth and Darcy back together again, without messing everything else up in the process.  Feel free to check out this hidden object game on Facebook, or wait until the new storylines go live on February 4th.

Award-winning webseries, oh my!

IAWTVAwards

LBD on the Red Carpet

So this thing happened with the Lizzie Bennet Diaries this month. Well, a lot has been happening on the show — haven’t you been watching? But the big news involves an IAWTV Award nomination and a trip to Vegas.  Spoilers: we won!

The 2nd annual IAWTV Awards were held earlier this month, celebrating excellence in webseries. The Lizzie Bennet Diaries was nominated for Interactive experience, for all its ancillary twitter feeds, tumblrs, mystery websites…  You can keep tabs on some of them here.

The IAWTV Awards were an experience.  I’ve been to the WGA Awards a couple times, and let’s just say Awards + Talent = more snazz. Or maybe the WGA puts all their money into the food, which I generally approve of.  But the IAWTV was covered with publicists, so you can hear from the cast and crew of LBD and see my premiere on the red carpet, which was actually blue, here.

Stay tuned next week for some stimulating updates on writing for games and the game industry!
