HTML5 and JavaScript Game Development Competition in just 13 kB


Become an e-burglar in this pseudo-hacking simulation where the real money comes from people data. Explore randomly generated filesystems that sometimes makes sense and take as much as you can, then go to the shop for some upgrades! Do not forget to check your stats from time to time as well and share them if they make you proud!

The whole game is played with the mouse and instructions and "lore" are available in the welcome screen. Click on : files to download them, folder to explore them, ".." to go back up in the hierarchy. You can also delete a downloaded file by clicking on it. That should get you going!

Feedback from the experts

Ahmed Khalifa: First of all, congratulations of creating a game for the JS13k jam, this in itself is a great achievement :) Over that is a really interesting game, reminds me of old hacking games mixed with cookie clicker genre. I would say instead of the time limit in the computer, maybe use like a meter of how critical you are to be detected and the bigger and harder stuff you do will increase the chance to get arrested so you need to steal as much and leave before getting caught, doing that will make you avoid the loop of people playing for long time without thinking about a strategy if they need to steal that file or it might make them get arrested. Another thing I noticed while I am playing is that I just go to each folder and download all the files that is in the size range that won't take long time to download, as it sometimes take more time to read the files instead of just downloading everything and the reason of having that strategy is there is no consequences of downloading files and only consequences if you take too long to download. But overall, I think that is an interesting game, you could expand also the way you connect, you could make it a small mini game in itself so you try to find places with low security and high value to hack. Great job and looking forward to see more improvement over the game :)

Björn Ritzl: I can definitely see this evolve to something larger! The set of upgrades are varied and makes you want to continue playing to unlock more.
