T3hb3n has released Hackwork a realtime strategy game with a unique computer hacking scenario. Hackwork is available from Desura priced at £2.99
QuoteHackwork is a new node-based 3D realtime strategy game in which you have to slip into the role of a hacker and control your army of viruses in a smart way in order to take over as many machines as possible. On your journey through the 'net, you have to take care of several parameters which determine the strength of the machines you want to attack and the benefit of taking them over, such as
CPU Performance - controlling the recovery-speed of the opponent-node
Connectivity - the number of yet invisible nodes that will be revealed when taking the node
The Type of the system - Important servers have usually better security than some random desktop machines - but they are also more useful when attacking from them
The Operating system - Different kinds of Viruses do different amounts of damage, depending on the target OS
Bandwidth - DDOS'ing a server with a smartphone seems pretty pointless, right?
--- Source code (which also includes the soundtrack!) available for every buyer! ---
