@MEGA2003 - Thanks for the vote! Though I still plan to release this game regardless if it gets greenlit or not. Though it being greenlit would allow me to justify putting way more resources and time into it, so as to have it completed faster.

I hope this game does get enough yes votes. It really looks like a good game.
I also voted yes for this game to get on steam.

@MEGA2003 - Well this game in particular hasn't gotten enough "Yes" votes because of two things. 1. I have no put up a trailer/demo for it yet. And 2. I don't advertise this game at all. Not even a little bit. Not even my direct family hear me talk about it unless they ask ME. Marketing is important for indie games like this.

How come fnaf 2 got got greenlit in less than a day but qualty games like this have been on greenlite for a while?

Voted! It looks interesting!

@Alex -This game isn't dumbing anything down. It's creating an alternate "easier" to understand interface on top of what you can do in a terminal. Nothing is being taken away from what you do if you KNOW what you're doing, but if you're an average/casual gamer who doesn't deal with terminals and consoles on a daily basis, I'm making the pinnacle of this game to be it's easy to understand and use interface.

If you want realism, and philosophically sound accurate game play, you can try Hacker Evolution, but you'll never really get what you are looking for. This type of game already isn't very profitable for most game companies. Anyone who is too technical won't want a "dumbed down" game. And anyone who isn't technical at all won't want a complex game with multi-layered k-level thinkers.

@Alex - I don't know if you actually DO any penetration testing. But I do professionally. And though more cores and higher GHz may not be "better" in that sense. It's faster. I'm not going to include multiple different CPU architectures to mimic real life as that would just be over complicating things. The hardware you buy in the game is going to represent the best type of each class and rank. 100 Gbit/s connections are used a lot of times. Especially for hacking using specific methods. Majority of the upgrades are exactly what they are. And Upgrade. They aren't required but they help you do things faster.

The whole point of this game is to get in and get out with what you need. Why not have hardware that will speed up the process? Also I don't think classifying what is "needed" for hacking would determine what would be easy to use and intuitive for a game.
Alex Oct 4 @ 2:28am 
@qberty I was not talking about which parts you needed, more about what they actually do and how they impact what you do. For example: more cores and higher Ghz != better. In most of the cases your purchase is based on CPU architecture instead. Also, when would you ever need a 100Gbit/s connection for hacking?

I don't know the full scope of this game, but it's things like that which struck me as "dumbing it down" a bit, and I have no problems with it. I know you can't really get too technical in a game that people without any knowledge about these things will play.

@Alex - Well if you're talking about hardware. It technically is that simplistic. If you were to order a cloud computer anywhere, or host a dedicated server. You'd literally only need to specify and configure/pay for those important hardware parts.

If you're talking about the game as whole, well like I said in a lot of previous comments, it's very difficult to balance simplicity with realism when it comes to a game that is based on something so complex.
Alex Oct 2 @ 1:27pm 
Looks interesting but description of the things you need in the game to hack sounds a bit "simplistic". I guess there's no need to explain how the different hardware parts actually works though. It just feels like many people will get the wrong impression by this. :P
qberty  [author] Sep 12 @ 9:17pm 
@plaza2028 - It's merely a game, you're not actually going to be hacking in to real computers. However, it's based on what real hacking techniques are, with a couple of exceptions I had to make in terms of time/speed. For example, when bruteforcing a password (randomly guessing all combinations of possible password). In real life this would normally take from 1 minute to 20 years depending on how complicated the password is. In the game, for specific time tasks like this, I speed it up to get around that issue so it takes less than a minute.

This makes it a little less realistic, but I highly doubt anyone would sit at the game and wait a possible 20 years for a password to be guessed successfully. :)

Great

Looks fun. Looking forward to more details.
plaza2028 Aug 28 @ 4:32pm 
Looks awesome! I hope it goes well+1 but is it based on real hocking or just a dipiction?
SSG Techlad SQ Aug 24 @ 12:57am 
Amazing. This has a lot of potential and definitely will be fun to play. +1
looks really cool, good job
Pershonkey Aug 4 @ 4:56pm 
Looks cool! I'll keep my eyes on it.
Also, thumbs up for the Mac version!
emagon Jul 28 @ 7:31pm 
Looks interesting, a gameplay video would be nice tho, voted!
cr8ivecodesmith Jul 6 @ 9:22pm 
Looks nice! I'm into Uplink for a while so if this plays around that space (or better) I'm all for that.

@Eternull - I don't mean to keep everyone in the dark about everything, but that's usually the best way to get things done without being deterred. This game is definitely going to come out, whether it's greenlit or not (but having it on steam would be pretty nice). Demo will definitely be available as soon as I can stuff as much features into it without revealing too much of the full game in it. The don't really have an ETA for the finished product, as i'm going for the "when it's ready" approach to avoid any rushing.
Eternull Jun 7 @ 10:03am 
So is this game coming out? Been awhile since favorited when first saw it year ago or more? I don't even seem to find a demo on that site...wanted to know if this still going and how long till expected release? if known
۞Ufuk!''Gsmoke Jun 2 @ 11:08pm 
i played alot of uplink,so if you mean that sorta thing then yes,also played around with armitage so yea :P realy looking forward to this,realy my type of game
qberty  [author] Jun 2 @ 8:29pm 
@۞Ufuk!''Gsmoke Yeah the video is taking longer mainly because I want to get most of the game done for me to be able to show off everything this game can do. There will be an alpha if I have any plans on adding features after the main game base is already done.

Hopefully I won't need to go through an alpha phase since I know pretty much exactly what I want this game to turn out to be. If anyone has ever played hacker simulation games before, they will know what to expect. Except I plan on making this better than that. ;)
۞Ufuk!''Gsmoke May 31 @ 11:21am 
@qberty the video is promised a long time ago (about a year?) whats up with that? realy looking forward to this can you release some info about the development and/or if there is going to be an alpha?
MULTIKcze May 31 @ 7:43am 
looks nice!!!
killer_biruta May 27 @ 11:35am

Ghost-Anubis86 Apr 26 @ 7:06am 
This is a real nice
qberty  [author] Mar 1 @ 1:18pm 
@Nuke[ICE] - Perhaps if I get a ukranian translator! haha.
Samedi Mar 1 @ 7:16am 
Nice idea qberty! And if you can make a Ukrainian version.
diavolo Feb 11 @ 3:01pm 
Nice ! I'm going to follow this project ;) Good Luck for the development.
qberty  [author] Feb 10 @ 10:30pm 
@☞ XtaZiiy` ☜ - Working on getting French, Russian and maybe Japanese integrated. It really depends on the type of demand.
diavolo Feb 10 @ 8:55pm 
Looks nice ! I hope for a french translation ;) Good Luck.

@Mk_DeAth_MARCK - ASD?
The Patch Alchemist Jan 30 @ 5:16pm 
This sounds really cool!
Knight of Lagatha Jan 6 @ 7:21am 
I hope soundtrack will be something like uplink or close to that...
MaxPoint Jan 6 @ 2:48am 
Great

Love hacking sim games! All the games this is based off of are great, so I expect great things!
BioFake Nov 15, 2013 @ 6:22am 
Can't wait to try it !!!
DARk-C1oWN Nov 7, 2013 @ 12:35pm 
I miss the old uplink game so hell YES!
Fido Oct 9, 2013 @ 10:18am 
A definite yes. I don't think I've ever seen something like this before (which I can't say about those damn zombie games), so I'd love to see where this goes.
romi01 Sep 19, 2013 @ 1:41pm 
:D
qberty  [author] Sep 19, 2013 @ 12:46pm 
@empoleom - Do not worry. I'm still active with this game and a video will come as soon as I can make one that properly shows off this games best points. First impression is everything ;)
antiO Sep 18, 2013 @ 11:58pm 
looks fun
romi01 Sep 15, 2013 @ 2:52pm 
when will we get the video?
J4X0R Aug 31, 2013 @ 6:40pm 
I work in the IT field. Being able to play a not so real version of my job would be ironically funny :-)

Seems promising
