Hey critic, will there be a english version only or do you plan to release it in other languages, too?

It's gonna be a while, have to setup a company and get all the legal stuff prepared. Then since Galaxy Union has also been greenlit and it doesn't require a server, it's probably gonna get released first.

When we can get it on Steam?

I think games with hackers were very good, nice idea!

Grayhat is achieved by doing a balanced combination of white/black hat tasks.

Just add Greyhat-hacking and you can count me in.

We'll see how it goes, for now I need more votes to get this thing off ground.
