Hacktag Released

Hacktag is now available on Steam, offering an asymmetrical two-player co-op stealth game where one player is the infiltrating operator, while the other is the hacker providing off-site assistance. The launch trailer shows off how this works, and the announcement fills in more details:

In Hacktag, the Agent moves physically through a corporate building level while the Hacker moves alongside electronically via network nodes. As the Agent avoids physical guards (watch out for those pandas!), the Hacker avoids anti-virus software moving through the network, with both players seeking to hack computers to steal the data required for mission success. While some tasks can be accomplished by either player, many tasks require the cooperation of both—for instance, opening a locked door requires the Hacker to electronically unlock it while the Agent physically opens it. Other features include:

  • Online and local multiplayer: Play separately or share the same screen using keyboard/mouse and/or game controllers
  • Single player mode: Simultaneously handle the dual roles of Agent and Hacker in frantic, fast-paced gameplay
  • Original asymmetrical gameplay and co-op mini-games: With the timer ticking, deactivate alarms and unlock doors or holding cells
  • “Co-opetitive" gameplay: As mercenaries, your partner is also your best competitor!
  • Three corporations, three mission types and 24 levels
  • Gain experience and add unlockable skills: Choose new active or passive skills as you gain levels
  • Online challenges, ranking and leaderboards
  • Full character creation: Customize your anthropomorphic animal character with more than 360 unlockable items
  • Unique story for each player: Experience Hacktag’s story with each role getting its own unique NPCs
