About the GameHacknet is an immersive, terminal-based hacking simulator for PC. 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.Features

Real Hacking

Based on actual UNIX commands, Hacknet focuses on real hacking, not the Hollywood-style version of it. This creates a truly immersive experience and puts players right in the thick of trying to break through the firewalls.

Unlock the mystery of Bit

A hacker is dead and the media reports don’t add up. When you are contacted by his “ghost” - an automated failsafe system - you’re drawn into the dark and murky world of underground hackers.

Full immersion

You are thrust into a persistent virtual world with no “levels” or obvious game elements to break the illusion. Follow the guidance of the emails from Bit or just dive down the rabbit hole, chasing down clues and snippets of information you find as you explore different systems.

Accessible but uncompromising

Whilst not holding your hand or dumbing down, the design of the game and the learning curve enables those with no prior terminal experience to enjoy it whilst delighting those in the know.

Killer tunes

Hack to the beat of a soundtrack featuring underground artists including Carpenter Brut (Hotline Miami) and Remi Gallego (AKA The Algorithm).

Soundtrack produced in association with The Otherworld Agency.

Hack your own adventures

Create your own campaigns, system networks, nodes, themes, music and story missions using the Hacknet Extensions mod tools. Share them with other players through Steam Workshop.

Review from Steam

This is one of my favorite games, for real. As someone who has a hard time with coding/computer logic, this game is great because it has unix commands and the structure is easy to follow, there is no script writing necessary. This game is not a hardcore hacking sim, so if you want a Real hacking sim look elsewhere. It has unique puzzles, free exploration of the areas you uncover, and the quest stories are fun and varied. If you like finding easter eggs and flavor text this game is for you. The background and music are great.

Review from Steam

A crude but realistic approach to hacking, while many things are simplified the premise and use is still there and effective at presenting a great simulation.

Review from Steam

You'll feel really dumb at the start, slowly feel smarter, have to google the answer for one puzzle, spend the next hour not being able to use the method the guide recommends, eventually make it through and feels proud, and the process repeats.
So it's actually really accurate to irl coding.
