Sure, a gal can play MYST and Doom like the best of them, but before the existence of this multimedia maverick we didn't have much of a choice beyond blowing things up. Girl Games, a local company intent on producing interactive edutainment for the young female market (ages 7-17), has been busy designing products that entertain while addressing the issues that concern adolescent girls the most. Their CD-ROM Let's Talk About Me is due out this month, but Girl Games has a rich Web presence, too. Their site plays host to Girls Interwire, an online newsletter written by high school students. Thank goddess for women's intutition.
