Black Ice is a game I have followed for a long time (and personally purchased a copy) and it just released a rather nice update. If you're an FPS fan and looking for something to sink some time into, this could be what you need.

It's rather different to any other FPS I've played before, as you go around hacking into different buildings with assorted difficulty levels, and from the hack a bunch of enemies spawn.

A little on the older side, but this trailer shows it off a bit:

It has tons of different weapons, upgrades, online multiplayer for PvE and PvP and tons more. I think it's an overlooked gem.

You can find Black Ice on Steam, Humble Store, and IGS. Article taken from

'Black Ice'? Not my favourite ACDC album, although Work's pretty good.

Interesting, I played this 1-2 years ago and really liked it. Didn't even know it was still in development. Have to try it again/ =)

I'd be surprised if "black ice" is not a reference to neuromancer

I'm interested in Black Ice and enjoyed the demo but $15 seems steep for a game in beta still. For that price I'll wait for it to be released and pay a little more.

Great game that, very replayable and good for casual games between classes too

Never heard of it, but it looks promising:

Huh. I had this on my wishlist at one time, but I just checked and it looks like I --- or someone who looks exactly like me --- had removed it.

Ok. Fixed!! It's back on.

I'll wait till it's on sale, though. $15 feels a bit steep for a 3-year old beta.

It looks like a quick way to get epilepsy.
