I'm glad you noticed, been thinking of how to improve the game and get this released, the name change is in response to suggestions here. It's a small step towards a relase, I will post an update when there is more to say.

Hacker World Online is renamed but still no updated on if it will ever be released? Anyone have any updates?

Critic make it a single player game at first and after a while start to impliment a multiplayer mode in to the game. We all want to play this game it looks amazing and has inspired me to start working on my own game. I think this game can do great on steam and even if you wont be able to put a multiplayer mode in it will still be fun to play. To help with the multiplayer always bring DLC's to the game like more missions, maybe new things to hack like banks and the government and maybe even china and other places. I really want a game like this to be out the desktop view and more! I dont mind if there cant be a multiplayer mode and i dont think lost of people would mind ether so please release this game and I will gladly buy it! And before I forget if this game is a sucsess which i think it will be you can make a second game like HWO 2 and maybe that one will have a multiplayer mode. Please read this and rethink releasing what looks to be an amazing game!

I have a dilemma guys, first, judging from the sales of my other Greenlit title Galaxy Union, I might not be able to afford a server for HWO and be profitable after a few months. Second thing is that in HWO there really is not much "Online" going on that is visible, yes everything goes through and online server, but there is no player-player interaction besides a leaderboard. I'm afraid that the game will be shot down by the community... I don't wish to put something mediocre on Steam and gain a reputation based on that. So I understand your desire for this game to be released, I'm just not sure if it is the right thing for me to do.

I wanna play..

No, not at the moment.
Goraidin Apr 3, 2015 @ 3:13pm 
Hm.. nothing new? :(
Goraidin Mar 3, 2015 @ 2:06pm 
Hey critic, will there be a english version only or do you plan to release it in other languages, too?
critic  [author] Feb 19, 2015 @ 1:14am 
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.
Goraidin Feb 18, 2015 @ 12:35pm 
When we can get it on Steam?
critic  [author] Jan 31, 2015 @ 2:41am 
Thanks.

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

Grayhat is achieved by doing a balanced combination of white/black hat tasks.
Hoxeel Nov 10, 2014 @ 10:21am 
Just add Greyhat-hacking and you can count me in.
critic  [author] Sep 11, 2014 @ 7:01am 
We'll see how it goes, for now I need more votes to get this thing off ground.

@Critic I Understand. Still Support :3

M'lady, here's my vote

It's coded in XNA, so it's not that easy to port.

I Hope You Make It For Mac! :D

Thanks for the info.
boxrib Jul 12, 2014 @ 6:09pm 
Tis true... Just thought you may wanna check so you dont get banned. im sure its fine :P
critic  [author] Jul 12, 2014 @ 1:38am 
I don't think this is related to that rule, otherwise Steam would not be selling hacking games (and there are a few). It's a game, there is no actual real world hacking going on.
boxrib Jul 12, 2014 @ 12:27am 
im pretty sure it specifically states in the Steam Greenlight terms and conditions that posting greenlight projectss pertaining to/containing hacking is not allowed? I dont know if It counts since It's not ACTUALLY hacking... but...idk..

Uplink is excellent.

It looks interesting, I can't wait to see where to go with it

like my friend said:
10/10 would torrent it
but enough jokes, games looks good, graphic is simple, but not ugly, have a lot of potential.
peter201943 Apr 11, 2014 @ 3:11am 
This appears to be an interesting game concept, perhaps similar to Hacker Evolution or Uplink? The video suggests more of a point-and-click game, with less typing in command prompt or scripting the malicious programs themselves. Well, I wish you the best of luck with developing this project and finally publishing it.

Yeah sorry only now I downloaded the game and I understood the concept. Too bad the server was hacked.
critic  [author] Jan 2, 2014 @ 4:26am 
All the actions go through the server, but there is no interaction between player.
Gabe the Dogue Jan 2, 2014 @ 4:21am 
I really want to see this game on Steam, the only strange thing is the name Hacker World Online, cause the game is rated for Single Player
