Take on the role of an operative in the Hex Gen network, a decentralized movement of hacktivists resisting the economic pillaging conducted by the unholy alliances of Big Tech, Big Military, and Big Finance. Think "The Windup Girl" meets "Neuromancer". Features: -Facial, vocal biometric capture devices -"Nohface" electronic face projector for thwarting surveillance/drones which cover almost every inch of city -Wireless internet -Darknets - all web activity is fully surveilled, you need stealth not only in meatspace but in cyberspace -More types of hacking - cryptography, DDoS, spoofing -Hunger: experience real economic destitution as you slowly die of starvation and are forced to beg, steal, or even kill for a piece of bread. -DIY: Upgrade your hemp trenchcoat with solar trim, syphon electricity from the private power grid, take apart old phones and radios to hack together an EMP gun, set up a hydroponic garden in your squatted flat so you don't have to kill for every meal.
A preview of the cornucopia of contraband, shrapnel, biodisasters, junk, and other fistfuls of tetanus and rust ripe for upcycling into weapons of mass insurgency. All in all there are about 60 new items including craftable weapons, augmentations, and mods, with more in the works. Most recent additions are crafting methods for crossbows, hand-cast bullets, scrapmetal shotgun shells, nine-inch-nail bolts, and custom weapon mods.
Highlighted in the above image is a broken telescope which can be hacked together with some other objects to create a new type of weapon modification which you can let your imagination run with. Since you really are essentially a homeless vagrant resistance fighter, not only the weapons but even the weapon modifications (range, accuracy, clip, recoil, etc) will have to be made out of trash and ingenuity. Call it the new "starving artisan economy". But from the mountainous consumerist landfills burying the streets and poisonous industrial waste seeping into the water supply the *really* elite hackers might be able to make even more powerful devices than the mass-manufactured, Big Box store products.
Also RE:Playable Demo - It's taken a bit longer than expected to finish up the final areas, but I'm just now adding in the game items, enemies, and making sure there are no showstoppers (or not too many glaring ones :D ) and then I'll be sending them out. Sorry for the cliffhanger to the testers! Just want to make sure you can get an experience worth your time trying the game out.
