Steam users who enjoy hacking and stealth games are going to be excited about upcoming hacking/stealth hybrid game coming to Steam Early Access, called Hacktag. Hacktag is a game by indie developer Piece of Cake Studios and will be available on Steam Early Access on May 18. Piece of Cake is also going to have a closed beta for Hacktag. The closed beta is set to start on May 11. Registration is still open and players are recommended to sign up here.
Hacktag is two player co-op game that can be played either split screen or online. One player takes the role of a hacker and the other takes the role as a field agent. Stealth is the name of the game; the two players have to work together to get through industrialized espionage missions. Each of the missions allows you to feel like the heroes of the spy movies.
“We’re incredibly happy to bring Hacktag to Steam Early Access for gamers all over the world to experience the original and exciting cooperative gameplay,” said Marine Lemaitre, Piece of Cake Studios co-founder. “We’ve already been given a number of industry awards and received a ton of positive feedback and can’t wait to see what others think when it launches into Early Access this May. Creating a perfect 2-player co-op experience that’s both exciting and balanced from two different points of view based on the two class types – hacker and field agent – was very challenging. As big fans of the co-op genre we felt like there was a void we needed to fill in co-op adventure experiences. Gamers, and especially those who live on co-op gameplay, can expect to encounter multiple ways of being entertained in Hacktag.”
Hacktag features the aforementioned split screen or online co-op, experience and unlockable skills, character customization, online challenges, rankings and leaderboards and a unique story for each character.
