Theme: Hacking / Pseudohacking

Group Description

Games that deal with entry into and manipulation of a computer system by various means. This could mean extracting data files or turning off security controls on various devices or sabotage of the computer system itself. These games attempt to simulate (with various levels of realism) elements of hacking/cracking and dealing with computer code. Typically pseudohacking games are also Darker science fiction themed and/or Cyberpunk, however it is not a requirement.
