Have you ever seen those movies where a hacker is able to perform incredible digital feats with just some seemingly simple lines of code and wondered what it might be like to do that? Well wonder no more thanks to Hacknet, an immersive, terminal-based hacking sim coming to PC August 12
Hacknet tells the tale of Bit, a hacker responsible for creating the most invasive security system on the planet. When he is murdered, his failsafe kicks in, sending instructions to a lone user who can help unravel the mystery and ensure that Hacknet-OS doesn’t fall into the wrong hands.
The game may not be the most visually appealing but it makes up for it by using commands based on actual UNIX code, Hacknet focuses on real hacking, not the Hollywood-style version of it. This should create an immersive experience that puts players right in the thick of the digital action.
Hacknet will be released on PC, August 12th for USD $9.99.
