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.
Due to a recent influx of able-bodied modders offering their services, Terminus Machina has officially re-entered development after a brief summer hiatus. Two new "cities" are already in development, as well as a new top-secret weapon.

I've recently received a sudden but not unwelcome influx of offers to help with development of additional levels and other content for Terminus Machina. As the stipulations for my Terminus Machina ultimatum seem to have been met -- help with creating levels and textures -- I've since reopened talks on Terminus development in a new uber-clandestine Trilateral Commision of my own. The details on the next step for Terminus Machina are currently classified, however the vision is looking increasingly... grand. There are already two different "city" macro-areas already in development for Terminus Machina. One is a dystopic, bleakified version of Hong Kong. Another is a "light on a hill" within the austerity-torn San Fran necropolis, a burgeoning hub of humanitarian aid orgs, NGO-backed resilient communities, and refugee camps.

Added to the Terminus Machina Dev Team roster are:
If anyone else is interested in joining the TM dev team please post here, message me on Moddb, or send a hummingbird drone to my safe house in the Ecuadorian Embassy in Moscow.
Pictured above is one of the newest additions to the Hex Genner's arsenal. Still in development, however let us just say that it is technically a photon-based weapon. (Modeled by AlvinD2008)
