Paramount Digital Entertainment and Legacy Interactive announced a deal today whereby the latter studio will create a series of PC games based on some popular Paramount pictures: Clueless, Mean Girls and Pretty in Pink.
Clueless: The Game
Here you take on the part of Cher who has the imperative task of "finding the perfect boyfriends for all her pals." You need to figure out what kind of man their friends want by noticing what clothes the guys wear and what interests they hold. The slogan is "Players will have to be quick! Love waits for no one!" But it is conditional to accessories..
Mean Girls: High School Showdown
Here you take on the role of a student trying to restore balance to the high school cliques, while simultaneously ending the reign of the terrible "Plastic clique", described as "the prettiest girls and the meanest of the mean." Really, this is just like Star Wars in a different package, but maybe I've been reading too much Star Wars news lately. Anyway, it's a noble cause, right? To restore order in this far away galaxy, you'll have to "use kind words and reveal important truths at the right time, or use the Plastic's own evil tricks against them, by using rumors, pranks and put downs." Anything in the name of order!
Pretty In Pink
This one features "beautifully rendered scenes" and gives players visual puzzles to solve in order to "experience the memorable story about love, friendship, the clash of social cliques and how to rise above them." I think I like this one best so far. Pretty In Pink: you have much wisdom to offer.
