I’m excited to share the news that Greyhat is coming to Steam on the 31st of August. This story-driven hacking adventure sees you playing as you, an infamous hacker-for-hire. Throughout your shady career, you’ve built one of the best reputations in the business for finding the dirt and getting the job done no matter the consequences.

After crossing the wrong people in what seemed a routine job your family has paid a heavy price, your daughter has been taken.

Infiltrating a wide variety of PCs, you’ll need to piece together the clues to follow the trail of your kidnappers. Unknown to you, this trail leads down a path full of dark secrets and jaw-dropping conspiracies.
 
Greyhat plays out in a style of gameplay that sits between classic point & click adventures, classic logic-based puzzle games, and more modern style hacking games like A Normal Lost Phone. Each stage of the game will require you to hack a new personal or office computer to solve a diverse range of objectives in order to find your Daughter.

Sifting through personal documents, business emails, corporate calendars, and peeking through your target’s webcams is vital to solving the mind-racking puzzles in the game. You’re able to take notes at every step of the game, which will be very useful the deeper down the dark rabbit hole you go.

Building a profile of your Daughter’s kidnappers is just half the battle in Greyhat. On many occasions, you’ll be called in to save the day through a series of unique mini-games, that introduce genre-defining mechanics:

-Incriminate pharmaceutical test reports [Check] -Hack into air traffic control to land planes flying blind [Check] -Leak lists of organised Neo-Nazi organisations [Check] -Help solve a cold case murder, bring justice to a grieving family [Check] -Stop a nuclear warhead from being launched with seconds to spare [Check]

Greyhat has already caught the eye of the press who have played the game’s demo, available now. In a  series of previews, press has said:

“There are mechanics I’ve never seen before…”
Eurogamer

“A hacking simulator done right…”
IGN Southeast Asia

“GREYHAT… [is] one of the most unique games we’ve seen in a while”

Greyhat is releasing on Steam on the 31st of August and will be priced at $11.99/£9.29/€9.99, there is a 15% discount for the first week of Greyhat’s release.
