Hacker Evolution has new engine, MacOS and Linux ports

Budding hackers of the Linux world rejoice! One of the best and fun hacking sim out there has just been confirmed to get a Linux port along with a Mac OS port. The announcement came on the official Facebook page of the #Exosyphen Studios, the #developer behind the game.

“Good news everyone! The BIG UPDATE for Hacker Evolution is now completed. The game has received a #newengine and MacOS/Linux ports. In a few days, we will deploy these across all publishing channels,” the announcement read on Facebook. According to the post, the port is complete and they are just putting on final touches on it to polish the final product. The game is already available on Steam for purchase, so by publishing channel, it could mean Steam as one of them, as that is one publishing channel that is available for both Linux and Mac. This is one of those games that I have sunk hours into playing mindlessly and yet still being satisfied with it. The only other game was Uplink Hacker Elite. (Wish they would come out with a sequel. HE can’t really compare to it, but still helps fill the gap) I strongly urge anyone who hasn’t played this game, do play it. It might not be an actual hacking sim, but fun puzzle game nonetheless.
