Her Story Creator Sam Barlow's Next Interactive Series Is #WarGames

"Launching in early 2018 and created by Sam Barlow ("Her Story"), "#WarGames" puts viewers in the middle of a thrilling tale of modern espionage, hacking and government conspiracy. It's a ripe time for the retelling of WarGames with a modern spin, and Sam Barlow is doing just that with an interactive WarGames series, similar in style to Her Story.

The first teaser for #WarGames is cryptic and dark, showing only flashes of footage from the series interspersed with real TV news footage and references to Yahoo's 2013 email hack, the 2014 Sony hack, the 2016 e-robbery of a bank in Bangladesh, and the Equifax security breach.

John Badham's 1983 classic saw Matthew Broderick as a young hacker David Lightman, who unwittingly invites global nuclear war whilst dicking around with a government supercomputer. Given the nature of #WarGames, it is likely to be only available through Eko's site, as many traditional video playing services don't have the capability for viewer input in this capacity.
