Histacom is a hacking game set in an ultra realistic computer operating system environment indistinguishable from the real thing. It has the unique feature of time travel never before seen in the hacking game genre. The time travel aspect adds great depth into the game allowing the environment (operating system) to evolve as you leap through different ages in computer history. When you start a new game you are thrown into 1998 using Windows 95. From there do a little exploring on internet explorer or of the operating system. Finally perform a Google search to access a secret webpage which will get the game in motion. (clue, 12padams copyright logo). Steal the alpha version of the secret time travel software and get ready for a crazy ride. The game currently has 5 different years programmed into it with 5 different operating systems. The game is mostly linear but does eventually split into multiple paths when you make decide how to fix the future by traveling to the past.
Warning corrupt file uploaded last time. GET THIS ONE INSTEAD! This is an installer version of Histacom that first installs the Microsoft .net 4.5 framework which is a prerequisite required for Histacom to run. Simply click setup.exe to install the game. If you are having issues install the .net 4.5 framework manually then rename and open the file named "Histacom.exe.deploy" to "Histacom.exe" which is located in Histacom 1.8.5 Setup\Application Files\Histacom_1_8_5_0. If you get to the title screen click new game and see if the game runs correctly. Try opening calculator or internet explorer. Note that windows programs (except internet explorer)are mainly there for visual purposes and don't actually function as intended. You can download and install extra software for your computer by accessing the ingame website "www.12padams.com" (type it into internet explorer in game and click go). If this game has potential I will continue developing it... if not it will rote away to nothing :
