Hacknet is an immersive, terminal-based hacking simulator for PC. Dive down a rabbit hoIe as you follow the instructions of a recently deceased hacker, whose death may not have been the accident the media reports. Using old school command prompts and real hacking processes, you’ll solve the mystery with minimal hand-holding and a rich world full of secrets to explore.

This comes with Steam Workshop support, so you can browse, download and play Extensions easily.

Browse the Workshop here!

Extensions are full new campaigns and stories for Hacknet by modders and creators. They feature new computers, missions, themes, programs and more! This launch opens up Hacknet for everyone to make their own stories with the Hacknet tools.

The workshop already has some amazing Extensions on it - I highly recommend "Hacknet B.R.A.P" by Matrix, and "The Slaughterhouse" by Chris Johnson and Catherine Moore. If you're looking for more Hacknet, here it is.

The tools are also available if you want to make your own Extension! The patch comes with an interactive introduction extension that you can play through. There's a community Discord channel here:

Discord.gg

And a full guide here: Steamcommunity.com

#HackerJAM

To celebrate the release of Hacknet Extensions, we are going to hold a friendly mod competition called HackerJAM.

Running from Friday, May 26 until Friday, June 9th, you will be able to submit your extensions with the hashtag #HackerJAM on Steam Workshop, or upload them to Moddb to go into the running. After that, myself and the Surprise Attack Games team will deliberate and nominate our three favorite extensions!

First place will receive $300 Steam Credit + a mechanical keyboard and some Hacknet goods, second place will receive $200, and third place will receive $100.

If you want to get community support, or team up with other creators, we recommend that you join the Hacknet Extensions Discord channel!

Discord.gg

Go check out the new extensions! I cant wait to see what everyone thinks, and more importantly, what everyone builds.

You play as a hacker in the game, there's no actual hacking instructions as far as I can tell.

I remember the first time i've ever played hacknet around 2012 and I have to say... Amazing simply amazing how it growed to the full game that is now. Usually the trailers for games movies, etc. don't have any effect on me but this time was... different. I was really hyped for this game and it was great and truly good surprise the fact that you've been developing in secret for 3 years. The music was really great, (nice move using roller mobster in that part). It was funny hillarious in some moments (22 TB of Pr0n lol) and the ending was simply epic. So thank you, thank you for dedicating quite a lot of time for this little great jewel of hacking games. I just hope that you can see this little message and I dunno maybe give you a smile or something.
PD: If I did some grammatical errors or stuff like that mind that english isn't my first language it's Spanish. Have a nice Day :D

I think I glitch out HackNet os v3.011!! I connected to Network Education Archives and did a probe on the network. Network has a Proxy, Firewall and ports 21, 22, 25, 80, 1433 closed. Typical easy hack! I decided to hack it in 2 stages. The first connection I made I hacked the proxy and firewall then the second time I connected I opened all the ports that are visible. Then I ran Porthack and it said "Too Few Open Ports to Run, Open Additional Ports on Target Machine"! so I disconnected because of trace counting down. So I reconnected back to the Education Archives ran another Probe and now All I get is Proxy, Firewall and Port 80# http webserver. I am missing the other 4 ports. I hack the Archives again but only port 80 because that's all I can see. I still keep getting the "Open More ports" error when I run Porthack! HELP Find my other ports!!!! Fix my glitch......
