Love stealth games? How about hacking games? Off Grid [Official Site] has them both and the latest teaser has certainly captured my interest.

I haven't actually been following it closely, something I aim to fix as it seems like a game I would enjoy. The developer has been testing Linux early-on in the development of it too, with them sharing a shot of it running on Linux back in 2016. They've recently put up a new gameplay teaser and they re-confirmed to me that Linux will indeed be a same-day release—heck, their Tweet even has a "#linuxgames" tag in it.

Anyway, less rambling more showing:

Here's what the game will feature:

  • Stealth and hacking gameplay based on use of data and environments rather than weapons and combat
  • Hack into lifelike simulated networks and data with realistic hacking techniques and tools including SSH, sidejacking, and social engineering of the AI
  • Contemporary storyline and missions related to real-world events surrounding data privacy and mass surveillance
  • Fully moddable content encouraging players to create new and interesting levels, whether complete fantasy or mimicking hacking in the real world around them
  • Outstanding audio and original soundtrack from Jonas Jensen and Lyndon Holland, the BAFTA-winning composer from the game Virginia

You can follow it on Steam. It's due out in "Early 2019".

I'm not usually too much into stealth games, but this one seems interesting.
Fairly unique.

Looks interesting, though I didn't know ssh was a 'hacking tool' :-p

If the hacking will be something like Hacknet or more realistic, It's gonna be instabuy

I just checked the recommended Linux hardware requirements:

"""RECOMMENDED:
OS: RISC architecture is gonna change everything
Processor: P6 chip. Triple the speed of the Pentium
Graphics: 3Dfx Voodoo capable GFX card
Sound Card: The Sound Blaster 1.0 ( "Killer Kard")
Additional Notes: 28.8 KBPS Modem"""
