The BBC’s Digital Entertainment and Legacy Games division has released a Jane Austen-themed Facebook game that fans of the author are sure to adore — at least, so long as they don’t become bored with the gameplay itself. The object of Jane Austen: Rogues & Romance is simple: Players must find Pride and Prejudice‘s newly married couple, Elizabeth Bennet and Fitzwilliam Darcy, and persuade them to return to the book from which they sprung. As they do so, they’re tasked to find hidden objects and play find-the-difference games in scenes from Austen’s six novels: Sense and Sensibility, Pride and Prejudice, Mansfield Park, Emma, Northanger Abbey and (my personal favorite) Persuasion.
