WarGames Being Rebooted as an Interactive Series

01 March 2018

While technically considered a reboot of the 1983 film, this WarGames bears few similarities to that film (at least so far as we can tell based on the information available). In the game, you play the story of Kelly, "an ex-military brat turned hacker activist" who fights for her family. The hacker group is led by Kelly, a young woman who's set on a quest for justice after her mother, a sergeant in the United States military, dies under a shroud of scandal.

It's time to channel your inner Matthew Broderick because the interactive #WarGames experience is nearly here from MGM and media startup Eko (formerly Interlude). A reimagining of the 1983 film of the same name, the game allows players to enter the exciting and risky world of hacking, espionage, and military intrigue. The series itself will allow viewers to see multiple video feeds of moments happening on the show, and their decisions of which feeds to view and monitor will alter the experience based on the viewers' decisions.

Barlow's previous credits as a designer in a lead role include the video games Silent Hill: Origins, Silent Hill: Shattered Memories and the independent release Her Story, an acclaimed interactive movie that was released in 2015. The series will also come to Xbox One, though no release date for it has been announced at this time.

The six-episode season will be available at HelloEko.com, the Eko iOS app, Vudu.com, and Steam on March 14.
