Reviews

“[hackmud is] oppressive and individualistic to a strong degree and in that uncompromising vision lays a true cult hit”
GameSpew

“So few games are capable of putting humans together like this in a den of villainy and letting them become slowly corrupted or instantaneously redeemed. Hackmud does this and does it very well.”
Rock, Paper, Shotgun

NOTICE TO POTENTIAL BUYERS

h a c k m u d is a incredible tangle of features, caveats, bugs and ruins --and I am but one solo developer. This makes this game unbelievably complex to maintain. HOWEVER-- As long as there are servers running the game, there will be balance patches and fixes.
Read AS MUCH AS YOU CAN about the game and player's experiences before making your purchase decision.

Excited to have you in game making messes with us. :D

Happy Hacking!

About This Game

h a c k m u d is a cyberpunk themed text-based hacking simulator for intel-compatible personal home computers. Get lost in a deep and complex world full of challenging puzzles as you engage in a rich narrative riddled with intrigue and deception.

  • Learn who you can trust as you make friends and enemies exploring the depths of abandoned future internet cyber-structure
  • Prove your worth to cyber-society by navigating the trials laid out for you by the Multi-User Domain’s governing super-intelligence, ‘The Trust’
  • ‘Patch into the hardline’ to access other users’ protected systems and steal their digital goods
  • Demonstrate hunger for power, flexibility of thought, and keen strategy to convince The Trust of your value and escape the virtual L.A.N.
  • Let the text-based interface transport you back to the early internet-era when computing was full of discovery
  • Create and destroy digital empires while exploring the constantly evolving user-created multiplayer world
  • Use real-world hacking skills (social engineering, cracking, research, scripting...) for power and influence in the M.U.D. at large

FEATURES:

  • A deep, nuanced and engaging storyline full of discovery that will keep you guessing
  • Encourages deep exploration and testing the limits of the system through rich side-content
  • An intuitive retro-futuristic text-based computing interface that escalates to advanced with glitches, hidden commands, and arcane syntax
  • 90s film style ‘hacking mode,’ for when you need to get some ‘serious’ hacking done
  • An original electronic soundtrack which will chill you out while exploring or amp you up when the pressure’s on
  • Persistent and constantly-evolving game universe powered by an almost endless stream of user created tools, puzzles, traps and much more
  • A fluid and organic class system determined by the currently loaded upgrades on your system
  • A fully scriptable in-game world with a global player-based economy of code and in-game botting
  • Regular balance patches to keep the game fun and engaging for players of all styles and at all levels of experience
