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.

Description

Environment sketch of a portion of the SoMa Autonomous Zone, a hub of humanitarian aid orgs, NGO-backed resilient communities, and refugee camps serving the austerity-crushed necropolis of San Francisco. Life is a long trail of tears for those displaced by skyrocketing unemployment, anti-jobless drone strikes, GMO plague, and wealth confiscation by megabanks. But the Green Zone of the SAZ glimmers on the horizon, an oasis of welfare-state amongst the howling brown wasteland, promising rations of stem-cell organofactured protein and an inflata-crete emergency shelter.
