"The online educational video game site iCivics, created in 2009 by former Supreme Court Justice Sandra Day O’Connor that features civics curriculum, has partnered with EverFi, an ed-tech company focused on K-12 and higher ed. And through the partnership comes a new initiative Commons – Digital Town Square, offered free to all K-12 schools."

According to this post this game will provide an adaptive feature, have "a variety of media including simulations and animations as well as pre and post-assessments and behavioral surveys." It also includes social components, badges and avatars, and they will be meeting some of the Common Core standards. To go directly to this new iniative - Commons - Digital Town Square:
