The Internet is under attack

Hacker Experience 2 is an open source real time hacking simulation. Living in a dystopic world controlled by megacorporations, you play the role of a hacker seeking money and power.

Whether you joined the fight against corporations or got blackmailed by them, you can form alliances with fellow hackers who share your ambitions. But beware of whom you can trust!

The game features a persistent virtual open world with deep gameplay features. Not only that, Hacker Experience 2 is open source and you can learn a lot about computers, security and privacy simply by playing it.

The only winning move is not to play.

As deep as the web

Hacker Experience 2 offers a profound and endless gameplay with several ramifications tailored by your character's decisions. Based on a virtual reality of the world, you can interact with virtual entities that behave just like real buildings or persons.

Hack servers, eavesdrop connections, upgrade your hardware, research new software, steal bank accounts, install viruses. All while trying not to be caught by the FBI - or other hackers.

Access the Deep Web to join user-generated missions, or side with others on a variety of missions generated by greedy corporations. New kid in town? Get close enough and hack him - or send a virtual drone near his computer to get access to it.

Cyberspace. A consensual hallucination experienced daily by billions of legitimate operators, in every nation, by children being taught mathematical concepts.
