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.
Good news, supporters! Terminus Machina beta release is slated for June! And it may happen, with some help from 'angel investors' in the community ;)

Update 5/27 - Voice acting for three small parts (one female) still needed. If all of these parts can be completed before June then the mod may see an early release! Please comment/message if you can help with voice acting, thanks. No prior experience required for these parts.
Good news, supporters! I’ve got my biohacked vision trained on a Terminus Machina beta release
by this June!
The bug extermination squad continues putting dissident snaggles of code out of their misery, and the result is the near-present dystopia has shown a 50% increase in dystopicness this quarter! Extra thanks to all the hard work testers have put in, with extra kudos to redrich and Dentonoid who have taken the lead with gametesting.
In order to get the game out by the June deadline, I will have to call on the community to get a swath of tertiary and a few larger-role voices cast. So if anyone at all, or anyone you know might be able donate a bit of time in front of their mic of any quality, then I would sure appreciate it, and so would everyone who wants to play this thing. Message me / comment if interested in voice acting.
For your econopocalyptic viewing pleasure, I present the Terminus Machina introductory cinematic, which should throw you head-first into the genetically warped sludge-lake of the Terminus Machina world.
WARNING: Not for the faint of heart or the willfully ignorant of mind. Contains scenes of extreme reality.
And here's a freshly redesigned logo for the Hex Gen hacktivist group. Hopefully capturing the peer-2-peer, decentralized, populist nature of the movement.
