Anyone played Hacknet? It's a very accurate representation of 1337 haxxing, it's very addictive. >Get mission to delete a database file from a rival haxxor's server
>break open 3 ports with my 1337 hax tools, >break through the proxy by flooding it with my botnet of shells
>analyze the firewall and pluck the password and solve it
>haxxor emails and says "gg im deleting ur x-server"
>oh fuck, no graphics
>boot up, scan my network, find a surrounding linux pc, break into it, download it's x-server, using nothing but terminal and cd, ls, scan, connect etc
>reboot with x-server back
>>haxxor emails and says "gg im deleting ur x-server"
>>oh fuck, no graphics
>>boot up, scan my network, find a surrounding linux pc, break into it, download it's x-server,
yeah, totally realistic.
This looks a lot better and more realistic than uplink. Uplink was OK, better than most shitty "hacking" games, but at the end of the day it was a point-and-click skiddy adventure game. If the description in the OP is actually true then this seems like a cool game, and could be actually used to learn more about Linux, networking, security, etc.
This is the hacking screen where you deduct which tools you need to penetrate. Occasionally you race against a tracing program, to which if happens. You have to hack into your ISP and renew your IP before you're traced, to which you'll lose connection to all the shells and compromised systems in your botnet.
