A free, playable beta of Indie hacking†simulator game ‘Hacker Evolution Duality’† has been made available for download for Linux users.
The game, the third entry into the ‘Hacker Evolution’ series developed by exosyphen studios, sees you assume the role of programmer Brian Spencer whose hacking skills are needed to thwart both the plans of an evil AI, and other pesky hackers.
The game blurb sounds a blast: –
You have to hack into computers using various tools, from a basic firewall cracker, to sophisticated voice print authentication systems. Steal money to finance your objectives, buy hardware upgrades or bribe off other hackers that are present in the game.
Go as far as bypassing complex security systems to make your way into buildings and steal data. Frame people or even murder them using ingenious traps.†
The free Beta contains 2 ‘single’ player levels and 2 ‘open world challenge’ levels†where players pit their skills against AI hackers in a battle for survival.
Whether you’ve always wanted to pretend you’re the kid from War Games, or you want to let your hacker-wannabe persona run wild, check the game out.
If you like what you find the game is available to purchase via Gameolith for $24.95. Steam users can buy the game for $19.99 (boo!).
And if you learn anything naughty – tell no-one.
