Take Over the (Fictional) Interwebs with Hacknet

on February 5, 2012 2:57 PM

Indie developer Orann has just released his newest game called Hacknet, and boy does it look like a fictionally illegal time. If you’ve played terminal-based computer hacking games like Uplink, you should somewhat know what to expect. However,┬áit looks like the developers have gone one step further and actually added a pretty awesome narrative to the gameplay, involving death, deception, and conspiracies, oh my.

From what little I’ve played, if you’re not used to games that vaguely look like your Command Prompt, the learning curve can be a little daunting. However, if you stick with it, you’ll not only feel like a 1337 badass, but you’ll be rewarded with a story that’s actually pretty compelling. Check it out for absolutely free right here.
