In Season 1 Episode 10 of Netflix's 13 Reasons Why, you can see a store clerk playing a game on his cell phone around the 11:20 mark.

From the short clip, it seemed like a top-down MOBA made for mobile phones.

What game is he playing, if it's a real game at all?

My conclusion from looking at the game in the image: that is likely to not be a real game.

From where the store clerk is tapping, it doesn't look like he has any goal in particular that he is trying to do with the game. I don't see any buttons or avatar either that he could be tapping or controlling.

My guess would be that this "game" is a placebo or something to make it seem the clerk is playing a game or being busy on his phone.

Hope this helped! Should I get any tips I will update my response.

  • Do you have any sources to back it up? There has already been an answer, now deleted, claiming it is a fake game without any sources Dec 10, 2017 at 17:27
  • Not yet. This is from what I know. I'll keep looking. Dec 11, 2017 at 2:22
  • @Wondercricket Say, should this game be a placebo, the producers probably wouldn't say anything about it. My answer is based on logical reasoning. Games will probably have a goal, correct? Dec 11, 2017 at 20:49

    It looks like he is scrolling around a map. That doesn't give conclusive evidence that it's fake. I also don't really see why there would be so many menu icons made for a fake game; or why someone would bother to make a fake game for such a small screen-time . It would seem like a waste when they could likely get permission to use another game for free (hello free advertising!). I don't think this is enough information to say it's a fake.

    @redapple8787 FYI you're completely misusing the word placebo. Placebo is a medicine or procedure or an action that doesn't have any effect in theory but does have in practice. You can't describe a game as placebo.
