Get Your Identity Stolen By K.O.M.R.A.D.
This AI thinks the Cold War is still going on and won't hesitate to freeze you out.
K.O.M.R.A.D. is an extremely interesting riff on gamebooks and movies that delighted in showing off just how bizarre and cryptic the Cold War could be. Now imagine you're playing an app that deals in things exactly like that, with your Apple Watch.
Much like Lifeline, K.O.M.R.A.D. seeks to unravel a narrative in real time with you as its main setpiece. Essentially, the game begins as your phone or Apple Watch receives a "message" from a number that tells you that your identity has been stolen, with passwords changed, etc. The only way to get it back? You have to hack into a Russian supercomputer that hasn't been touched since the 1980s, only there's one caveat: it's an experimental Soviet artificial intelligence that isn't aware that the Cold War ever ended.
So there's that.
This sounds like an incredibly inventive alternate reality-styled game that I'd love to get my hands on, but I don't have an Apple Watch to try it out, so I'll be relegated to testing it via iPhone and iPad in the future, though it's yet to have been given a release date just yet. It sounds like an absolutely awesome time, though. Pretty creepy to think it's nearly something that could happen, just sans the Russian supercomputer AI part.
