From our original article on the release:
"Back in the day, I was heavily into LEGO's The Nightfall Incident – a turn-based browser game about hacking on a 2D grid. Although the game was simple, some of the levels required a lot of thought – and the openness allowed you to approach each level in different ways. Years later, after learning to use Godot and looking for a game to make, the answer was obvious: a 2D hacking game with similar mechanics to The Nightfall Incident but improved in every way. The rest, as they say, is history." – James Harvey (Founder and Programmer, Teradile).
