(CNN/Meredith) – Russia used a video game as part of its efforts to influence the 2016 presidential election, according to a CNN special report.

The online game was entitled “Hill-tendo", where players get Hillary Clinton to, among other things, delete classified emails and collect money from foreign countries.

CNN said the game was created by Russians who wanted to make it go viral weeks before the election.

Recent records uncovered indicated that "Hill-tendo.com" shared the same internet protocol address with another site that had ties to the internet research agency.

It’s been determined that the Kremlin-linked corporation indicted by US special counsel Robert Mueller last month.

One person who tried to share the game on Twitter appeared to have been a Russian software developer with connections to the internet research agency, according to CNN.

The game did not go viral as creators hoped. Among the reasons why "Hill-tendo" could only be played on desktop and laptop computers, not smartphones.
