Description

Hacktag is a fast-paced two-player co-op stealth-game with unique asymmetric gameplay. Play as the stealth Agent in the field or as the virtually-infiltrated Hacker and work together to carry out espionage missions where nothing goes as expected!

History

In 2029, in a parallel world inhabited by anthropomorphic animals, you are a mercenary who secretly accomplishes missions for corporations struggling for leadership. To succeed you will have to team-up with a partner and infiltrate corporations simultaneously in two ways: As the stealth Agent, moving through corporate buildings with an isometric 3D view and fast, arcade-style infiltration gameplay. Or as the Hacker virtually infiltrating the same level with different view—see the world through holographic blueprint vision and move through a virtual network to interact with the cameras, doors, phones or even coffee machines…Hacktag is released on Steam since February 14th 2018 after making its debut on Early Access June 1st 2017 and a month of Closed Beta in May 2017.
