More about the game...
In World Wide Hack world, you - as a player - are making decisions by accomplishing quests and investigating persistent network of computers owned by people (living NPCs and players) in parallel reality. You should use your power to influence life of the game characters which have various nature, problems and story. By doing that you can change the whole story through the documents, software and data saved on their computers.
You are able to interact with other people in multiplayer as well in PvP. Network of computers can be accessed by terminal of QuanTech company application in information system. This company is working on research about quantum computers and accidentally discovers possibility to connect to this parallel realities via their application.
World Wide Hack is PvP and PvE simulator which dynamically reacts to player actions. You should collect hacking, security and analytics tools and secure your node from which you can explore whole network and attack another player´s devices. Basic gameplay is consisting of various types of quests which you can complete in many ways according to your preferences. Every option of finishing the quest has real effect in the game - you can see it right in the story and in the state of the whole game world. You have to use various dynamics to defend yourself and control the network thanks to effective hacking and protecting strategy you should choose.
All tools, mechanics and strategies used in World Wide Hack are based on real hacking methods modified for gaming purposes.
We are trying to keep deep feeling of realistic hacking atmosphere and experience but at the same time avoid too complex lengthy principles by simplifying them. The result is enjoyable hacking process with real basis and fresh dynamics adding gamification and fun elements.

Creating a good game costs time and energy and it's hard to reach our goals without any financial help. So we are looking for some Patrons who like this idea behind project as we do and want to help us to make it in best quality and shortest time so we can finally play it!
Our team already gained some financial support to develop vertical slice from Slovak fund called Slovak Arts Council so also thanks to this we are are able to finish game. But we still need more money to cover expenses for following more then year of development.
Support us so we can finish all hacking and game mechanics, complete whole story, prepare epic content, upgrade graphic interface and make the game playable and enjoyable. And of course we need coffee to make all our ideas happen so every dollar is better than nothing!
You can speed up release of the full game by participating on funding development so don’t hesitate to join us on Patreon. Enable us to continue working and receive your rewards that we are offering.
