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.
Introducing the silverized trench coat, aka "The Anti-Drone Cloak". Another DIY augmentation the player can create that renders you invisible to Predator drones. Security, style, plus the .999 fine silver threaded throughout works as currency in a hyperinflationary pinch!
While aluminum 'tin foil hats' have gathered a patina of infamy in the countercultural community, serious renegades, activists, and citizens concerned about winding up on the President's 'Drone Kill List', looking to evade the all-seeing, all-murdering eye of the surveillance state opt for the argent metal. Silver is proven to have the highest infrared reflectance over an extended wavelength range of any known material, making the wearer invisible to airborne drones.
(Also notice the added Calorie bar next to the health UI. Your calories slowly drain till you find food, and biohacks such as Bioluminescence and Quadruped will use calories to function as well.)
