CYPHER

The Official Free Online Multiplayer Hacking Platform Shooter
cyphergame.net

Strategy, tactics, and fast decision making are all needed in this exceptionally intense game. Cypher was constructed in a way that allows for enormous amounts of skill. This gives users a rich experience, but does require learning the fundamentals. A 'Capture the Flag' dynamic is applied to this interesting, complex and dangerous environment. CYPHER is unique as it was built from the ground up to support cooperation as well as competition with others in real-time. A free chat and game network with dedicated servers provide for solid gaming. CYPHER features an automatic updating system that distributes the very latest version to all the players seamlessly as the game is developed.

Features
· Free online lobby network that provides for chat and game matchmaking.
· Increase your hacking skills and strength as you level your Agent with completed online missions.
· Leaderboards display the top players across the globe.
· Automatic updating system so players always have the latest version.
· Jetpacks, Lasers, Blasters, Plasma's, Detonators, and heath packs are just a few of the many tools your Agent can utilize.
· Entirely open environment with endless possibilities for strategy, teamwork, and sabotage.
· Controls are highly intuitive and precise, giving players the opportunity to employ skill on a massive scale.
· 10 unique maps that can support up to 8 players in any arrangement of teams or FFA.
· Integrated exception reporting system to give developers bug reports on the fly.

Background
The plot of CYPHER is the overthrow of the tyrannical Martian government. In the not-too-distant future, colonization of Mars has been completed and the new government is being influenced by evil corporations. These organizations are rife with corruption and greed. The populace seems to not notice or care, lulled into a false sense of complacency by the media as their freedoms are stripped from them. From the darkness, a collection of underground computer hackers emerges to find valuable secret information which can lead to the downfall of the destructive forces that have taken over the planet. YOU are one such hacker, bent on revenge and justice, trying to bring about that change.

Throughout the civilian world are public-access terminals. Using a special device, you are able to hack into secured networks and steal secrets from the government. They will try to stop you at every turn, killing anyone they track down carrying their secrets with their murderous orbital satellites. Competing agents, out to make a name for themselves or representing different agencies, will also attempt to kill you to slow you down or profit off your hard work. Working alone, or in covert teams, with a host of technology on your side, you are able to overcome these challenges, collecting data you will be able to one day use and open the eyes of all civilians and expose the lies of those in power.

CYPHER Beta 3.5 is launched!

News

CYPHER is releasing its largest update ever today, Beta 3.5!

To recap the past year and several months:
- CYPHER attended Casual Connect (San Francisco, CA) in July, and it was a huge success.
- We have distributed over 50,000 copies of CYPHER 3.4.
- The average rating on our distribution channels is 9.5 out of 10.
- A new forum version was released in December.
- A new master server environment was deployed.

We’d just like to say thank you for your patience over the past year, and we’re happy to say we’ve been hard at work. Here are the details of the next Beta version:

CYPHER is taking a new approach at character leveling. There has been discussion around balancing incoming players with veteran players, and we feel that the new leveling changes solves this. Characters will still be persistent outside of games, displaying statistics and ranks. However, leveling and agent modifications will now only apply inside of the game. All players start off with a level 0 agent when the game begins. Users can quickly upgrade an agent’s hacking ability, jumping, jetpacking, and heath as they level. We expect interesting strategies to soon emerge, such as secret retrievers going full heath, and others upgrading hacking or credits to purchase devastating weapons for the team.

Content! The Rocket weapon has been added, as well as the infamous flare item. You can purchase these in your base store.



Teleporters have been added, and you can use these to transport to vast and secret areas of maps quickly.
Artificial intelligence and non-playable characters continue to be worked on and we’re looking forward to releasing them as soon as they are polished.


The content and management system took a bulk of the time over the past year. We have completely implemented spritesheets across the entire game, resulting in a total of 18 sheets from a staggering 4000 images. This has dramatically increased the performance of the game, and has fixed issues with older graphics cards not being able to draw textures with sizes outside the powers of 2. All of the screens have been retouched, and a new change team interface can be used in the game lobby.


We have moved from .NET 4.0 Client Redistributable framework to .NET 4.5.1 as the libraries that we use now require them. Unfortunately this means that Windows XP will no longer be officially supported. Our audio and network libraries have been updated, and our entire network stack across the board has been refactored. We are starting to look at solutions to multiplatform support after this release.

New installer, updater, and extractor applications have been launched and feature a slim, lightweight user interface. Many issues have also been fixed with them, including prerequisites not being properly installed. We don’t anticipate any problems auto-updating from 3.4 to 3.5, but if they do occur, just download a fresh copy.

We are always eager to hear your feedback around updates, bug finds, or simply awesome game stories. We look forward to your opinions on the new in-game leveling system, and we hope to get input around balancing and other aspects of the game.
