John Badham’s 1983 Cold War thriller “WarGames” is a stone cold classic, and like many classics from that era – it has now been remade.
Unlike most remakes though, this one is going the super cheap and digital route. Titled “#WarGames”, this is an interactive series that will launch on mobile, HelloEko.com, Vudu.com and Steam on March 14th.
Jess Nurse plays an ex-military brat turned hacker activist who leads a team of international hackers banding together in an attempt to bring about peace. As events escalate, they may have done more harm than good.
The trailer for the six-episode first season can be seen below with viewers having a chance to influence the narrative by ‘switching between video feeds’ allowing the series to ‘learn’ from your choices.
