Her Story Creator Reimagines 80s Classic WarGames

This new interactive series revisits the Matthew Broderick film.

An entertainment company called Eko announced today an interactive series that reimagines the classic 80's film WarGames. The new title is #WarGames and comes to us care of Her Story developer Sam Barlow. Like Her Story, the games tells its tale through a live-action medium.

"With '#WarGames' I was thrilled to take the questions raised by the original movie and ask them again in a world where technology has fundamentally changed our lives. To do that interactively felt like a perfect marriage of form and content," said Barlow.

"I am excited to introduce viewers to the new hacker protagonist, Kelly, who represents the breadth of modern hacker culture and its humanity," he added. "As viewers help steer her story, I hope they will fall in love with her as much as the '#WarGames' team did!"

#WarGames is coming to undisclosed platforms in early 2018.

M.H. Williams is new to the journalism game, but he's been a gamer since the NES first graced American shores. Third-person action-adventure games are his personal poison: Uncharted, Infamous, and Assassin's Creed just to name a few. If you see him around a convention, he's not hard to spot: Black guy, glasses, and a tie.
