Cypher, the Online Multiplayer Hacking Platform Shooter
Cypher is a free up-and-coming online independent multiplayer shooter based platformer. Strategy, tactics, and fast decision making are all needed in this incredibly 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.
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.
It is with much pride today that we have the opportunity to announce Cypher Beta 3.2!
This version is very special as it showcases all of the features that will be making it into our Independent Game Festival entry! 3.2 was a monumental update and we are delighted we can show it to you today.
Leaderboards. Agent information such as levels, experience, hit percentages, kills/deaths can all found on the website. Accounts are now directly tied to the forum and game, so registration will be needed if you have not signed up on the forums.
A new Summary screen displays the end game results of the mission. You can view your character in-game with the new Agent screen.
Several significant issues with critical parts of the updating application were resolved. The installer had a problem checking for prerequisites in a certain scenario. If you have had any problems in the past playing, be sure to try this version.
Cypher has never been more fun or intense, and we can't wait to see what will unfold with this game. The team will keep you up to date on the latest news regarding the Festival. See you online!
