Terminal-based hacking simulator Hacknet is available now on Steam. There are no dodgyminigames here, this is hardcore stuff, featuring "old school command prompts and real hacking processes." Here's the plot synopsis:
"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."
As well as uncompromisingly realistic hacking that will probably make as much sense as a brass cloud to anyone unfamiliar with no terminal experience, the game features soundtracks fromalumni Carpenter Brut, among others.
Hacknet is available for 20% offuntil August 19.
