Nightfall Hacker the 2D turn based strategy release is out on Linux, Mac and Windows PC. Thanks to developer Teradile, who is also offering a discount on Steam for the game’s launch.
The 2D turn based strategy game Nightfall Hacker is out. If you were around the ‘net in the early 2000s, you might remember a browser game that ran on the LEGO website. This was called The Nightfall Incident – now regarded as a cult classic. Nightfall Hacker is a full out homage with additional programs. Also, way more levels, and the inclusion of a level editor.
Developed by UK studio Teradile, Nightfall Hacker turns white hat hacking into no holds barred. While unflinching turn based strategy skirmishes against malicious software. Of course, there are also dangerous payloads too. You’re a freelance hacker – someone who lives and dies by code. So making money is easy: All you need to do is to accept jobs. Then deliver the goods, and get paid. Win enough new clients, and the world is yours. Along with the upgraded programs that go along with it. Nevertheless, you eventually come to grips with the fact that black hat hackers are up to something nefarious. Therefore it’s up to you to find out. Have a look at the trailer below.
Nightfall Hacker Launch Trailer
“Back in the day, I was heavily into LEGO’s The Nightfall Incident. A turn-based browser game about hacking on a 2D grid,” says James Harvey, founder and programmer at Teradile. “Although the game was simple, some of the levels required a lot of thought. Ad the openness allows you to approach each level in different ways. Years later, after learning to use Godot and looking for a game to make. The answer was obvious: a 2D hacking game with similar mechanics to The Nightfall Incident but improved in every way. The rest, as they say, is history.”
- Hacking with simple, straightforward rules.
- More than 100 levels to get through.
- Nerve-wracking turn-based battles.
- Custom level editor included.
- Two single-player campaigns.
