Is this the closest we'll get to a Pride & Prejudice adventure game?

Downton Vinny

Posted by vorpalparasite

Vinny is the gosh darn best!

Posted by Freaksaus

This look a lot like the Faerie Solitaire I got on steam a year ago. I spent way too many hours on that. It's strangely addicting.

OH! Key Cards! SO this is basically Doom?

Posted by Razzuel

Nothing wrong with liking a solitaire-type game, @alex. Also, this game looks pretty all right.

Posted by incandenza137

This is almost identical (in gameplay) to their previous game Fairway Solitaire, if you want this without the Downton Abbey thing.

Posted by StraightGrizzly

Just imagining Alex playing this has me in tears from laughing so hard.

Posted by ThaReignman

Yep, I just paid for a solitaire game.....

Posted by DarkSeraphim666

I'm surprised niether of them brought up Fairway Solitaire. That game single handedly made this type of solitaire game more popularized.

e-sports moment of the year right there

Posted by peter369

That was surprisingly intense for a solitaire game.

Posted by Phili151

Don't think I've ever been more invested in a quick look than this.

Posted by Seeric

It is apparently by an entirely different developer somehow, but this game reminds me a whole lot of Faerie Solitaire, which I received as a joke gift and ended up playing a disturbing amount of.

Solitaire on its own is not a bad card game and there are a lot of nice little touches added here between the powers to help balance out bad luck, the varied card layouts, and the stage gimmicks. I would never even consider buying this game for what they are asking, but it's far from the worst way to spend your money if it falls to around $1 during a sale.

Hi, developer here! Thanks so much for covering the game. I made this game with my wife as both live in Dorset, UK and are history enthusiasts.

You may also be interested to know that I programmed the original Fairway Solitaire for PC/Mac back in 2007 for Big Fish Games along with a designer called John Cutter and an artist called Matt Laverty. The game became a hit casual game and has inspired many variants since then.

Our new solitaire engine features new mechanics and powerups, an expanded metagame, and of course the epic story!

I hope you enjoy the game. Current the Mac version is only available from our GreyAlienGames site; the PC version is on our site and Steam.

@alex Hey, you should check out Fairway Solitaire and Pyramid Solitaire Saga on your phone for the same mechanics then you can be addicted on the go too! They are pretty polished free to play games.

Hmm...Patrick Klepek was playing Snakebird, interesting...

Vinny casually doing a pearl necklace joke like it was nothing, so great

Posted by Gaff

It is a truth universally acknowledged that a man in possession of a good fortune of games must be in want of a card game.

Looks like the art in this game is 4:3. Crazy in 2015 I know, but you guys stretching it out to widescreen is kinda rough on the eyes and isn't doing the game any favors.

Posted by Sravingmad

Alex somehow managed to make that as intense as possible.

...Patrick is playing snakebird

Posted by gabha

I cannot fucking believe that there would come a day where I could be on the edge of my seat for a game of solitaire.

Bravo GB.

Edited by GreyAlien

That last hand made me sweat, lol! It was super-tense.

Btw, you can destretch the screen in the options screen. Also you can undo wasted wildcards.

Those bow cards have to be played TWICE to remove them. They can be useful for building big combos on some levels.

There's also a cool Phoenix powerup to purchase later on.

Edited by Kordesh

This is basically Faerie Solitaire reskinned with more aristocracy and pearl necklaces instead of pets.

Posted by TheSmudge

I'm so relaxed right now.

Posted by august

Also I say this quick look positively gave me the vapours.

Edited by Hassun

Somehow I am not surprised this game managed to grab Alex.

Classical commentator Vinny is fantastic.

Posted by ConstantineL

A surprisingly persuasive QL...

Edited by Fox318

@freaksaus: yeah it reminded me of gridiron solitary on steam.

Nothing wrong with a relaxing game

Don't be silly. Everybody wants this.

Very much so.

Posted by SneakingMission

You fucking nailed it, Alex.

Edited by millionthlayla

It's good to branch out! I spent a (probably embarrassing) number of hours on Faerie Solitaire, myself. There's something really soothing about just clearing away piles of cards.

*reinstalls Faerie Solitaire* >.>

Posted by treyirby

This is about like when I bought Gridiron Solitaire on Steam sight unseen, only it seems like it's a lot more rewarding somehow.

Posted by Redhorn

Holy shit. If I ever need to explain to someone why I like watching people talk over video games, this is my case.

P.S. Jane Austen fucking rules

Posted by Kasaioni

Holy shit they might be right about this thing being addicting. At least, the people at Rock Paper Shotgun.

Posted by BagronkeN

12 minutes in I realised there were 20 minutes left.

I love Giant Bomb.

Edited by Vessel28

This makes me want to go back to Faerie Solitaire. Looks like Fairway Solitaire came first though. I may even pick up this on a sale, I find these solitaire games pretty addicting.

Posted by Sarumarine

Alex Navarro's Hype Solitaire!

Posted by Abendlaender

Jane Austen fucking sucks. There I said it. She is terrible.

Posted by whitegreyblack

This might be the funniest and most exciting QL so far in 2015. For a solitaire game! What a time to be alive!

Posted by NoCookiesForYou

Alex, explain yourself!

Posted by gkhan

Jane Austen fucking sucks. There I said it. She is terrible.

I will challenge you to a duel, you dirty scalawag!

Jane Austen is amazing! She has inspired a lot of awful imitators (looking at you Downton Abbey and Regency Solitaire!), but she herself was a genius, probably the greatest prose stylist in the English language since Shakespeare. Only her own books do her justice, no adaptation of her has ever come close to the originals.

Posted by tsetsuyama

Classic.

Posted by baddudes

@alex so much heart at the end to pull off an amazing perfect to close the game and complete the chapter

Posted by Sessh

The QL was fun, but man do I never want to play that game.

Online
Posted by vr00m

Just whack that jack off the table

Posted by Abendlaender

@gkhan: I'd rather read all the garbage Dan Brown wrote than one of Jane Austen's books.

I haven't seen Faerie Solitaire but this type of Solitaire isn't something new or unique. The spin this game has is the board layouts and the different powers you have access to. If FS is only a couple of years old, I seriously doubt they were the ones who came up with it.
