Hack The Planet: Quadrilateral Cowboy Released

Low-fi hacking

Pull on your data gloves and slap on your mirrorshades for Quadrilateral Cowboy [official site], the latest from Thirty Flights of Loving and Flotilla developers Blendo Games. Quadlat Cowbo is a first-person heist-o-hacking game about sneaking into places using gadgets, gizmos, and good old-fashioned hacking. It's from the command line school of hacking, having you tap out commands and scripts to carefully time hacking cameras, laser grids, doors, and such so you can waltz right in. It was jolly special when I played an early version two years ago, so I'm mighty excited that it's finally finished and out.

Here, you can see some of the hacking and gadgets in the fab launch trailer:

And as you'd expect for a game built on a version of the Doom 3 engine, Quadlat Cowbo supports modding.

Our Graham is tippy-tapping away to tell us Wot He Thinks later.

Quadrilateral Cowboy is £14.24/18,99€/$18.99 on Steam including a small launch discount. Right now it's only on Windows but Mac and Linux versions are to come. You can also buy Steam keys from Blendo, which I assume gives them a greater cut. You can also pay a few quid extra for the Deluxe Edition including this amazing digital art book:
