We all like a good neon-lit hacking game, right ’80s aesthetes? Good news then from Reality Council Games, who send word Wetware, a single-player game of computer war and espionage happenings. “In Wetware, you play at the helm of one of the world’s megacorporations, doing what is necessary to stay at the top and crushing anything that gets in your way. Hack in to rival networks, bribe journalists and sabotage the economy for your own gain.” Bribe journalists?! Goodness, I am not sure that such a thing could ever be possible. Good thing this is just a videogame, eh?
A selection of our audience will no-doubt appreciate that “the retro-synth-dreamwave custom soundtrack”. Wetware will reportedly be released in 2013 for all three true gaming formats: Windows, OS X and Linux.
