Game release: “Midnight Protocol” (PC)

LuGus Studios and Iceberg Interactive‘s tactical RPG Midnight Protocol is a hacker’s dream or nightmare.

While hacking has played a prominent role in all sorts of genres, usually in mini-games, making it the star of the show has been rather rare. Here one takes on the image of hacktivist Data whose private information has been leaked to the internet and who is chased by a shadow organization of the government for blackmail, but it’s up to the player how criminal the hacking activities will become or if they’re used for the common good.

Everything is played via one’s home computer, so one won’t see any characters moving around and interacting with others. The only form of communication is by keyboard, e.g. sending emails, using chatrooms or entering passwords as well as making decisions how to handle information. Being an RPG, one completes both main and side quests which usually mean breaking security protocols, with one’s actions changing the storyline and reputation. For example, one can help the police by finding another hacker, blackmail people or extract money from digital safes. This requires having the right tools in the form of programs and hardware which serve as skill sets that can be upgraded like in an RPG, although a very unusual one.

The game is out now on PC with a 10% launch discount that lasts until October 20, 2021, at 3 PM UTC.

Being an avid gamer, cinemaniac, and bookworm in addition to other things the internet and new media present, I'm also very much into DIY music, rock and pop in particular. Writing short or longer pieces about anything that interests me has always made me happy. As both an editor for German website "Adventure-Treff" and UK website "Future Sack", I like to write reviews and news about recent developments in the movies, games and book industry.
