A new Terminal-Based Game is in town and goes by the name 'Hacknet'. This game, technically is a hacking stimulator which allows the player to execute real UNIX commands.

Developed by Australian based studio Team Fractal Alligator. And this is what their official website says 'bout the game :

Dive down a rabbit hoIe as you follow the instructions of a recently deceased hacker, whose death may not have been the accident the media reports. Using old school command prompts and real hacking processes, you’ll solve the mystery with minimal hand-holding and a rich world full of secrets to explore.

Bit, a hacker responsible for creating the most invasive security system on the planet, is dead. When he fails to reconnect to his system for 14 days, his failsafe kicks in, sending instructions in automated emails to a lone user. As that user, it’s up to you to unravel the mystery and ensure that Hacknet-OS doesn't fall into the wrong hands.

Exploring the volatile nature of personal privacy, the prevalence of corporate greed, and the hidden powers of hackers on the internet, Hacknet delivers a true hacking simulation, while offering a support system that allows total beginners get a grasp of the real-world applications and commands found throughout the game.

Cool, right ? The game too is very much intriguing and will surely keep you hooked up for hours. Basically any person who loves witnessing a hack getting executed or is just curious about the same should surely try this game. There are but some things about the game which are not cool at all. ( Nothing's perfect, right ? ) The gameplay becomes repetitive after a while. The player ends up executing the same codes over and over again in order to proceed in the game. Which kinda makes it boring after a while.But surely after a long time we have a game which is out of box and gives us a concept which we never did witness before.This game surely deserves a try.
Thanks for reading :)
