Greyhat a new hacking adventure seeks support for Linux along with Windows PC plus we have the release date. Thanks to solo developer Limited Games. Which is due to arrive on Steam later this month.
Greyhat is coming to Steam on August 31st. This story driven hacking adventure sees you playing as you. Since you an infamous hacker for hire. Therfore, throughout your shady career, you’ve built one of the best reputations in the business. Seeing you can find dirt and get the job done no matter the consequences.
After crossing the wrong people in what seemed a routine job. Your family is also paying a heavy price, with your daughter being kidnapped.
Cracking a wide variety of PC’s. You’ll need to piece together the clues to follow the trail of your kidnappers. Likewise, what is unknown to you, this trail leads down a path full of dark secrets. There are even jaw dropping conspiracies in Greyhat.
I’m a solo indie dev, so all this while I’ve been pretty much focusing on getting the PC version done. And making sure it’s release worthy. But once I’ve gotten that nailed down I’ll be looking into a Linux version next.
Since Limited Games is new to Linux porting. They also reached out via Twitter for support and which Linux distro to use. So it looks like a port is definitely in the works. But as the developer also states, “if all goes well and no major issues are encountered. It shouldn’t be too long before you see a Linux release.” So there is a chance we might have a day one release this month.
Greyhat plays out in a style of gameplay that sits between classic point & click adventures. Maybe closer to classic logic based puzzle games. And more modern style hacking games like A Normal Lost Phone. Each stage of the game will require you to hack a new personal or office computer. Solving a diverse range of objectives in order to find your Daughter.

You’re able to take notes at every step of the game. Which will be very useful the deeper down the dark rabbit hole you go.
Building a profile of your Daughter’s kidnappers is just half the battle in Greyhat. On many occasions, you’ll have to save the day through a series of unique mini-games. Which even introduce genre defining mechanics:
