Hacknet is a single player hacking simulation video game developed by Team Fractal Alligator and published by Surprise Attack. The game was originally developed at a game jam event in 2011, and after numerous updates since its inception it was officially released on August 12, 2015. This terminal-based hacking game follows the series of events following the death of a hacker named Bit. Gameplay is centered around manipulating a fictional operating system via mouse gestures and text commands in order to solve objectives.

Based on actual UNIX commands, Hacknet focuses on real hacking, not the Hollywood-style version of it. This creates a truly immersive experience and puts players right in the thick of trying to break through the firewalls.
A hacker is dead and the media reports don’t add up. When you are contacted by his “ghost” – an automated failsafe system – you’re drawn into the dark and murky world of underground hackers.
You are thrust into a persistent virtual world with no “levels” or obvious game elements to break the illusion. Follow the guidance of the emails from Bit or just dive down the rabbit hole, chasing down clues and snippets of information you find as you explore different systems.
Whilst not holding your hand or dumbing down, the design of the game and the learning curve enables those with no prior terminal experience to enjoy it whilst delighting those in the know.
Hack to the beat of a soundtrack featuring underground artists including Carpenter Brut (Hotline Miami) and Remi Gallego (AKA The Algorithm).
Soundtrack produced in association with The Otherworld Agency.
