“Clique” is a top-down action adventure game and also a first person adventure game. “Clique” is a dual story told through the perspectives of the young teenage girl and the avatar character within the game she is playing. Players will explore environments, solve puzzles, and defeat enemies to build trust with the world’s unwelcoming characters.

Reminder! CVGLS is Saturday, April 16th! Schedule here:

Recent Developments in Video Game Law

Privacy, Harassment, and Free Speech in Virtual Worlds

Video Games and the Right of Publicity
