Description

Overpopulation on Earth has made governments pass a restrictive law established to force people off the planet. Playing the role of a convicted space marine, the story puts the player on a space ship full of prisoners en route to a distant planet when it becomes trapped inside a cosmic anomaly known as Black Nebula and shortly afterwards attacked by beings also trapped within.

Space Hack is a Sci-Fi Action/RPG game with Diablo-inspired gameplay mechanics, presented in isometric real-time 3D graphics. The game doesn't use classes, instead it allows the player to develop a character in any direction wished for by increasing the character's 4 primary characteristics (Strength, Dexterity, Knowledge and Endurance) which in turn will effect his secondary characteristics and influence his close and ranged fighting abilities.
