  • ‘Patch into the hardline’ to access other users’ protected systems and steal their digital goods
  • Demonstrate hunger for power, flexibility of thought, and keen strategy to convince The Trust of your value and escape the virtual L.A.N.
  • Let the text-based interface transport you back to the early internet-era when computing was full of discovery
  • Create and destroy digital empires while exploring the constantly evolving user-created multiplayer world
