It's the second official EXAPUNKS hacker battle competition!

The same rules apply as last time: you have two weeks to submit up to two solutions for the selected hacker battle (Valhalla). Solutions will be run against each other and hopefully a clear winner will emerge. Full details here:

Congratulations to Bacardi (the EXAPUNKS player, not the beverage company), who was the winner of the last hacker battle competition. Statistics and some videos of the best solutions are available here:

About This Game

The year is 1997. You used to be a hacker, but now you have the phage. You made a deal: one hack, one dose. There’s nothing left to lose… except your life.

EXAPUNKS is the latest open-ended puzzle game from Zachtronics, the creators of Opus Magnum, SHENZHEN I/O, TIS-100, and more.

  • WRITE VIRUSES - Program your EXAs (EXecution Agents) to tear through networks, replicate themselves, trash files, terminate other EXAs— and leave without a trace.
  • HACK EVERYTHING - Hack banks, universities, factories, TV stations, highway signs, game consoles, the government... oh yeah, and your own body.
  • SLACK OFF - Play ПАСЬЯНС, if you hack the server where it’s stored. Or play HACK*MATCH, if you hack the region lock on your Sawayama WonderDisc. Or create your own homebrew games for the TEC Redshift… if you hack the development kit.
