What is Hacks in The Dark?

Hacks in The Dark is a journaling game and GM supplement. The goal of the game is to create a hackers manifesto to bring about their masterplan. It will be your Magnum Opus. You’ll take up the role of this hacker with a desperate need, in search of the ultimate hack to get what they want. They will try to understand code from within the never ending cascade of data that surrounds them in cyberspace by randomly generating hacks and adding linear notes to their manifesto. In the end, you’ll have an in-game artifact that you can pass on to players and hopefully know a little more about what your hacker has sacrificed to get where they are.

In no time at all you will be building hacks like this.

But it won't stop there.  Soon your hacks will grow in size and complexity.  With this comes greater power and control, but how long will you last before you are tracked or worse?
