Hacknet v1.23 (Current Version)



Development News


Hacknet is back in full development - in fact is has been for a long time now! Lots of new features, new missions, new programs (new everything) are in. The story now splits into multiple paths, that are completely different. It's making development take a lot longer, but should improve the game significantly. The paths play quite differently - Hacknet watches your actions and you'll end up with a different game depending on what attitude you take towards things. It's exciting times!

Don't worry, your computer will be fine. Anything the game actually connects to is controlled by me, you wont get any trouble.

Thanks for letting me know - I'll look into it for future versions, but I'm pretty sure I know what it is - your computer's name probably has characters in it that Hacknet cant render (nonstandard English ones) - the game's trying to show your name but cant. I can fix it so if this happens in future versions it'll be fine, but unfortunately I'm not planning another release for a long time.

If possible, you could play it on a computer or account where the PC name and the logged in user name use only plain English characters.

scp should work - did you remember to type the name of the file to download it in the command?

"scp entropy_induction_test" should do it.
