Alpha 8 released
Alpha 7.1, a roadmap, and monetisation
Release date: 2014 (Alpha currently available)
Wetware is a single-player cyberpunk strategy game that places you in control of a megacorporate network. Hire elite hackers to attack other networks, steal information, crash their nodes and protect your assets. Get involved in corporate espionage, corrupt officials and prying journalists. Carve out a networked empire, neutralize your competition and dominate the Net.

Build grids from research you've completed yourself or stolen from your rivals - be as creative as you like in their layout and design, and keep your team of hackers trained and equipped ready to defend your network or overcome the traps protecting that important data you need.

Wetware also supports modding (documentation and support limited to higher alpha tiers during alpha phase), allowing you to add anything from simple mutators that change the game slightly, all the way through to adding full-blown campaigns, and giving us the chance to add Steam Workshop support to Wetware would mean you can distribute your creations much easier.

In fact, it's that particular strand of completely unrealistic neon-blue hacking game; the type that transports you into the tension-filled world inhabited by certain ridiculously cheesy films

It's clear that there's potential for something really engrossing here.[...] Little details like the ever-present news ticker and email correspondence with various people help to flesh out the world, even with the minimalist visuals.

Originally posted by Tom Welsh, CalmDownTom:
what I played promised tense hacking gameplay, a moody and atmospheric soundtrack and a genuinely absorbing play experience. It’s got the kind of neon glow that makes it particularly suited for late night game sessions as the world map gets burned into your retinas while it shines bright in an otherwise darkened room.


DRM-free Alpha

Interested to see how you evolve the concept and how you make yourselves stand out from Hacker: Evolution, Uplink et al. After seeing Shadowrun Returns' run at it (all things considered pretty reasonable for an 11th hour change) I think the sub-genre has legs, Particularly if you can integrate some Adventure-style story/thriller elements to give the gameplay plenty of context. Something tells me this kind of game will live or die on the strength of it's atmosphere and immersiveness. Anyway - good luck!
