If you’re reading this, it means you have passed the test and are ready to become the world’s best hacker. Script kiddies stay at home, only the chosen may read further.

This month we bring you not one, but two hacking games! Jack into Uplink, an absolute classic of a hacking simulation from 2001. Join the Uplink Corporation as its newest member of freelance cybercrime and rise through the ranks in the hacker world. Sound good? Your first test is to download the game here. Then jump forward in time 15 years and delve into the seedy underbelly of Hacknet. Use real terminal commands and specific hacking protocols to investigate the murder of the legendary hacker, Bit. Steal the data here.

We have been anticipating this month for a long time. We hope you’ll join us on our journey to see how hacking video games have evolved through the years. Conspiracies will be uncovered! Corporations will fall! And sunglasses will be worn at all times! Now get out there and hack!
