Publish date:

Paramount Digital Entertainment and Legacy Interactive are joining forces to develop video games based on hit films Clueless, Mean Girls and Pretty in Pink.

Paramount is looking to engage new audiences, as well as appeal to existing fans of the classic movies.

In Clueless: The Game, the player takes on the part of Cher trying to find the perfect boyfriends for all her friends. Players will need to figure out what kind of guy their friends want by noticing what clothes these potential suitors wear and what sort of interests they have.

Mean Girls: High School Showdown, meanwhile, allows players to take on the role of a student trying to restore balance to the many cliques in their high school and to end the reign of the 'Plastic clique'.

Finally, 80s classic Pretty in Pink will give players the chance to relive the story through the new game format. Gamers will need to solve a variety of visual puzzles to experience the story of love, friendship, the clash of social cliques and how to rise above them.

"Paramount is focused on creating quality interactive entertainment based on evergreen motion pictures," said Sandi Isaacs, senior VP of interactive and mobile at Paramount Digital Entertainment. "With these games, we will not only reach the core casual games audience, but engage new audiences with our properties. We are confident that our collaboration with Legacy Interactive will be a great success."

Ariella Lehrer, president and CEO of Legacy, added: "Our goal in collaborating with Paramount is to create games that longtime fans of the films will appreciate, but also games that challenge and entertain the casual gamer."
