The Paradise Lost Board Game online will soon be
available worldwide in several languages. A beta tester playroom, aka
“sandbox,” will be open for a short time to get feedback as the designers
adjust the game. Students will enjoy this tool since they have grown up
with the internet and online gaming. When the final version is launched, there
will be two or three versions. One will have a limited number of cards and be
free to everyone to “taste” the game. Others will be premium and monetized.
The monetized version will feature a plethora of exciting illustrations
from artist Terrance Lindall, an abundance of quotes from Milton’s epic,
and references to scholarly works on the subject. The game will be
available on STEAM, the world’s largest online gaming platform. Universities
and libraries can buy a lifetime subscription to make the game available to
The Beta tester will be available through the holidays only.
