A Canadian development outfit has acquired the exclusive rights to make videogames based on the works and likeness of Charlie Chaplin. The filmmaker and actor wrote, directed and starred in countless dozens of films and his character The Tramp remains one of the most globally recognised icons of comedy. Chaplin is now venerated by a film establishment that once looked down on his work, and old clips and even entire movies have found something of a contemporary audience for him on YouTube.

The news comes via a CBS report (opens in new tab) on the Quebec-based company B Df’frent Games which, with Chaplin expert Yves Durand, successfully pitched the idea to the Chaplin family. The conditions that the family wished for were “No violence. No sexism. No racism. Genuine storytelling.” Which does sound like they thought they were being pitched this thing in the mid-1990s, but we’ll let it slide.
