Ever wanted to hack something but didn’t really know where to start or afraid of the implications that might follow? If your answer was yes, than your in luck!
Coming August 12th Hacknet is coming to PC and will be available for download via Steam. Here’s the pitch!
Dive down a rabbit hole as you follow the instructions of a recently deceased hacker, whose death may not have been the accident the media reports. Using old school command prompts and real hacking processes, you’ll solve the mystery with minimal hand-holding and a rich world full of secrets to explore.
Bit, a hacker responsible for creating the most invasive security system on the planet, is dead. When he fails to reconnect to his system for 14 days, his failsafe kicks in, sending instructions in automated emails to a lone user. As that user, it’s up to you to unravel the mystery and ensure that Hacknet-OS doesn’t fall into the wrong hands.
Exploring the volatile nature of personal privacy, the prevalence of corporate greed, and the hidden powers of hackers on the internet, Hacknet delivers a true hacking simulation, while offering a support system that allows total beginners get a grasp of the real-world applications and commands found throughout the game.
The game features real UNIX based hacking, this isn’t no Hollywood-style replica of hacking, this game creates a truly immersive experience and puts the player right in the middle of trying to break through the firewalls.
Hacknet will give you full immersion into a persistent virtual world, one that has no obvious signs of “levels” or game elements to break the illusion. The great part is the game doesn’t require any hacking experience, the learning curve enables those with no prior terminal experience the ability to still enjoy the game.
