Off Grid from developer Semaeopus is a stealth hacking game where data becomes a powerful weapon and it looks brilliant.
Off Grid is a stealth and hacking game where data is your most powerful weapon. Off Grid forgoes combat for hacking tools and ingenuity, and is extensively moddable.
Unique gameplay mechanics allow you to manipulate the world and people around you with the data they unwittingly leave behind. You can truly hack and manipulate objects in the environment.
I covered this before briefly back in April, as the developer seemed committed to providing a Linux version. Sadly, the demo is currently only on Windows and Mac but I did speak to the developer today where they told me a Linux demo is now a priority with the Kickstarter being live. They've unfortunately had some last minute issues they're trying to solve, so hopefully it won't be long. Update: As the developer noted in our comments, the demo is now on itch.io.
They're seeking £20K in funding and with 29 days to go they've already managed nearly 50% of their goal so it looks like they're onto a winner. Hopefully it won't suddenly drop-off as we've seen that happen a few times, they need to keep that momentum going.
The actual gameplay does sound very promising, especially with it removing combat. In a world were privacy issues are found constantly (hello Google+) and mass surveillance is becoming the norm it's especially relevant.
Take a look on Kickstarter.
