Adding a new twist to gaming and reading, family-friendly game developer No Crusts Interactive has launched Stride & Prejudice, a new iOS app that turns Jane Austen’s Pride and Prejudice into an endless runner game.
Designed by No Crusts’ founder Dr. Carla Fisher and currently available at the Apple App Store for US$0.99 with no in-app purchases or third-party ads, Stride & Prejudice lets users play as a pixel-art rendition of main character Lizzy Bennett, who must run across levels created from the text of the beloved novel.
The game features a survival mode which challenges a player to see how far they can get when always starting from the beginning of the book, and a reader mode which picks up where a player last fell off allowing them to read the entire book. In addition, text scrolling speed and color schemes are customizable.
Stride & Prejudice is programmed by Supercosm’s Peter Berry and includes art by Rick Pinchera and Megan Isom Smith, as well as an original soundtrack by Adrian Hernandez.
It is No Crusts’ second indie game release coming after Williamspurrrrg: A Game of Cat and Mouse, a family-friendly, cooperative, multitouch puzzler which launched for iPad devices earlier this year.
