Hacknet v1.23 (Current Version)

Development News

Hacknet is back in full development - in fact is has been for a long time now! Lots of new features, new missions, new programs (new everything) are in. The story now splits into multiple paths, that are completely different. It's making development take a lot longer, but should improve the game significantly. The paths play quite differently - Hacknet watches your actions and you'll end up with a different game depending on what attitude you take towards things. It's exciting times!

youve probably already thought about this.

reputation points added to either white hat alignment or black hat alignment based on which jobs you choose to complete. and instead of showing your reputation points on the UI (windows doesnt have a reputation point display, does it?) you can check your reputation on some sort of hacker forum where people post things about you.

thats my two cents at this time. haha. great work so far!
