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.

Hacknet's release in August was a huge success - thanks so much to everyone that's played, talked about and reviewed the game! It's currently sitting at over 1,500 reviews, with more than 95% positive. Steam says the response is "Overwhelmingly Positive" - their best possible category, and overwhelming's right - we're so glad the community's been so great, and enjoyed the game so much, and we're working to support it as well as we can.

Official Soundtrack

The Hacknet soundtrack has been released on Steam and Bandcamp - It features 9 artists! Here's the first track:

Mac/Linux Builds

Mac and Linux builds are nearly ready, and are in testing now! Hopefully they'll be released within a few weeks - look for an announcement soon! We're also looking into other locations, like the Mac and windows App Stores, and SteamOS to make it possible to get the game in whatever format and store works best for you.

Future Plans

After Mac/Linux/Whatever else ports are ready, i'll be looking into mod support, multiplayer and translations, then maybe some more content and an expansion, depending on what the community wants. Stay posted - there's a lot more to come.

BUG
It's possible to get the Bit investigation before you unlock the junebug mission. which means you don't have the tool to crack port 104 medical which makes you unable to complete the bit investigation. I'm completely stuck. no more missions at csec except the locked junebug and i can't complete the last entropy missions because I have a different faction id.

With the new Deluxe edition you can accept the Junebug mission without having the "KBT_PortTest" so you must deny
