What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“We at HokaBento Studio strive to create the best games we can, realizing our vision to the best of our ability. To deliver the best product we can, Code.Breaker() still needs some time in the oven, but we also want players to experience what we have created so far.
For these reasons, we are planning to release the game chapter by chapter over the early access period for those who want to have a taste of the finished game.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“The game will be in early access until the full game release, which is estimated to be in Q1 2022.”

How is the full version planned to differ from the Early Access version?

“Planned for the finished game is the finished story and hacking gameplay, naturally. Furthermore, the game will have date scenes where you have the chance to get to know the characters you meet in the story better, as well as learn more about the setting in general.
The game will also have custom synthwave soundtrack and high resolution pixelart.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“The early access build includes the first chapter of the story, complete with hacking gameplay and a first date. The date won't have all the dialogue options the full version will.”

Will the game be priced differently during and after Early Access?

“The games price will stay constant after early access.”

How are you planning on involving the Community in your development process?

“We will be listening to community feedback over the steam community and strive to use the feedback given to make Code.Breaker() the best game it can be. For this, we will use reviews and social media, where we will post polls and development updates.”

About This Game

Code.Breaker() is a cyberpunk visual novel about technology, crime, and trying to survive in a world ruled by corporations.

Setting

2083, Free City-State of Seattle. Augmentations are commonplace, most people at least having a brain-computer interface chipped in. Sentient Androids live amongst the population, together with genetically modified humans and cybernetically enhanced people.
The corporations fight with other corporations over their bottom line, both figuratively and literally, making it a hotspot for so-called “Ronin”. These “Ronin” are modern-day mercenaries doing the dirty work for anyone who can pay them, most of the time corporations.

Story

You take the role of a hacker working for Akiyama CyberTech as a “Network Security Expert”. Your job is to keep the Seattle branch office safe from outside intrusion and the network security of the building in shape. It’s a mostly ceremonial position to fulfill legally required human quotas, which you only got through nepotism.
In truth you were born without citizenship in the slums of Redmond and honed your skills in the underground hacking scene.

One day, you get an email from an anonymous sender who knows your secret, threatening the life you've built up.
Now it's up to you to take back control!
