Summer is a good time to be a thrifty gamer. Sales abound, Twitch Prime is giving away 21 different titles, and now you can enter the seedy techno-underbelly of the internet with Hacknet for free.
Released in 2015, Hacknet lets players sift through a mess of code and firewalls to figure out the story of what really happened to a recently-deceased hacker. In the trailer, you change an ad that says “Everyone loves chicken!” to “Everyone loves weak security!” Suffice to say, I’m in.
Hacknet is free until Saturday morning on Steam.
