Hacknet is an immersive, terminal-based hacking simulator for PC. Dive down a rabbit hoIe as you follow the instructions of a recently deceased hacker, whose death may not have been the accident the media reports. Using old school command prompts and real hacking processes, you’ll solve the mystery with minimal hand-holding and a rich world full of secrets to explore.

Hacknet Complete - coming soon!

Fully Realized - Hacknet Complete

After years of development behind the scenes, the new, complete, longer, deeper, crazier, (award winning) version of Hacknet is almost ready! Coming August 12 to Steam and other digital distribution platforms. Almost all of the ideas and requests that people sent me over the last few years about the game were prototyped, and all that worked (most of them!) are in the new version - there's a lot to explore, a lot to find, and a lot that's so secret that people might *never* find it. I'm totally ok with you taking that as a challenge.

I think I glitch out HackNet os v3.011!! I connected to Network Education Archives and did a probe on the network. Network has a Proxy, Firewall and ports 21, 22, 25, 80, 1433 closed. Typical easy hack! I decided to hack it in 2 stages. The first connection I made I hacked the proxy and firewall then the second time I connected I opened all the ports that are visible. Then I ran Porthack and it said "Too Few Open Ports to Run, Open Additional Ports on Target Machine"! so I disconnected because of trace counting down. So I reconnected back to the Education Archives ran another Probe and now All I get is Proxy, Firewall and Port 80# http webserver. I am missing the other 4 ports. I hack the Archives again but only port 80 because that's all I can see. I still keep getting the "Open More ports" error when I run Porthack! HELP Find my other ports!!!! Fix my glitch......
