You might remember that in House of Cards, Frank Underwood (Kevin Spacey’s character) switched from playing a console FPS to playing Monument Valley and subsequently Agar.io, with the first one getting a pretty big boost from being on the show. Well, an eagle-eyed gamer noticed that Rocketcat Games’ Death Road to Canada ($14.99) has joined the club of TV show mobile games by being on Kiefer Sutherland’s Designated Survivor. As you can see from the tweet below, in Season 1 Episode 20 someone is playing Death Road to Canada, and the game is pretty prominent.

Designated Survivor is a show about a huge attack that wipes out the US government and leaves Kiefer Sutherland’s character, a low-level Cabinet member, as the new President. As another Twitter user points out, we have a show made in Canada for Americans starring a Canadian featuring a game about getting from America to Canada.
