'Austen Translation' Turns Dating a Dangerous Games

Placing players in a ridiculously exaggerated Jane Austen-inspired world, 'Austen Translation,' pokes fun at social classes and the idea of marrying for wealth. Developed by Worthing & Moncrieff, LLC, this game challenges players with marrying a wealthy bachelor, while eliminating the competition through manipulation, rumors and in some cases violence. The ultimate goal of these acts of sabotage are to make your competitors look bad, while still keeping a composure that will draw the eye of a wealthy bachelor.

Players who have mastered Austen Translation can then compete against four friends, as the game provides a dedicated multiplayer component. The mechanics will remain the same, but the general gameplay of Austen Translation lends itself amazingly as a party game.

Austen Translation is currently available on Steam for PC, with no current plans for console ports.
