Shall we play a game? The classic 80’s hacker film “War Games” is set to make a return in a completely new way: as a video game series.
Interactive entertainment company Eko announced the latest project from award-winning creator Sam Barlow to be “#WarGames,” a series that brings the classic film into the modern era.

The game will focus on a young hacker named Kelly and players will determine how her story plays out.
“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,” Barlow said in a press release. “I am excited to introduce viewers to the new hacker protagonist, Kelly, who represents the breadth of modern hacker culture and its humanity. As viewers help steer her story, I hope they will fall in love with her as much as the ‘#WarGames’ team did!”
“#WarGames” is set to be released in early 2018.
