Jane Austen: Social commentator. Popularizer of rom-coms. Word Fighter. That’s right: Ms. Austen will be a character in the upcoming iOS/Android game. As the developer said, “When it’s time to throw down, Jane is ready to destroy you.”
Originally coming up with the idea last year and intending it to be Street Fighter, but with words, the game reportedly now looks like a combination of Blogger, Words With Friends, Scrabble, and Super Puzzle Fighter. The game challenges how fast you can spell words when competing with other people, and while you play you get to be personified by famous authors.
