MADISON, WIS. (AP) - A Madison-based company has worked with retired U.S. Supreme Court Justice Sandra Day O’Connor to create video games that promote knowledge about government.

Filament Games says it has created several titles for the iCivics project, which aims to remedy civics ignorance among middle-school students.

The games include one that involves the operation of a fictional law firm, and another that casts players as attorneys arguing landmark court cases. Others teach about the three branches of government, the legislative process and democracy.

The games were unveiled at the Games for Change festival in New York recently, and O’Connor has promoted them widely.

Filament Games was founded in 2005 and has grown to a staff of 16.
