Hacker Evolution: Untold is an indie-hacker puzzle game with a high focus on non-linearity and decision-making.
All gameplay is just clicking the objects on the screen and watching the computer code compile and in front of player's eyes. The game also features some keyboard input to choose between the targets to hack. There is a set of objectives in each level one have to accomplish for example — fool the security system, access the enemy servers and transfer the information from one device to another.
The game features real commands from programming on Linux.
There is also a highly customizable level creator, so the total amount of levels one may accomplish and come through depends on the other users.
There is also a money system introduced to the game with no meaning whatsoever — one cannot buy anything hacker-useful for them.
The developers got inspiration from multiple conspiracy theories and philosophical conceptions— this led to the narrative utilizing the theme of AI gaining control over the human race with the protagonist forced to conquer the mutinous robots. We play as Brian Spencer whose quest is to get unframed from the crime he did not commit. Not only androids are standing on the way of humanity, but the economic and political situation in the world keeps getting worse experiencing multiple crises.
