American Girl Julie Saves the EaglesAmerican Girl is trying something a little new with the release of their latest historical character, Julie; they are releasing video games, too. American Girl has teamed up with THQ to release American Girl: Julie Saves the Eagles, a Windows-based interactive adventure that gives users the chance to join Julie Albright’s quest to save a family of endangered bald eagles.

Shasta, Sierra, and their baby eaglet, Freckles, are cooped up in a cage, and Julie knows they must go free. Girls get to play the part of Julie as she travels throughout the San Francisco Bay Area to reach her goal of saving the eagles from a life of captivity. Special features include the chance to unlock new challenges and characters as Julie’s world expands, plus a “Notes to Myself!” diary tool to enhance game play.

You can read a review of the game, complete with screen shots at the AG_Over_18 site.

Julie Finds A Way is the Nintendo DS release of the next game – due out November 13.
