Set some years in the future, following a global economic and social crash, Data Hacker Initiation follows Jay; a retired hacker in search of vengeance. Jay is a prolific player of Online World: the escapist's dream game in a backwards-future, until an ironic case of mistaken identity, whereupon he is banished from the refuge that he so loved.

Enraged, Jay seeks to re-enter the game with a new agenda: wreak havoc for the administrators and key-holders of Online World. Little does he know; he is about to enter upon something great, and terrible- a twist that nobody saw coming.

Just what lies behind Online World?

What is its true purpose?

Initiation features-
An original, intricately crafted narrative,
Monster and player hacking!

Data Hacker: Initiation reviews and comments

Translated by
Microsoft from Russian
"I Do not understand what happens" my phrase when passing this game So every time you go into it. On the one hand, the game does not need to wait for what is supernatural, because it is made in the RPG maker, but on the other hand, the implementation did not like. A Couple of words about the game: You show up, you read a ton of dialogues, then what kind of crap is telepotipoty your friend, then you into a strange world, where Grandpa offers you "party" to swing on the mobs. Natural take, and on "easy" overpower the first monster. Then in the same world, some administrator, learns that you are a hacker and banite you aipi, then you create a new character with a mask from Zorro, and Bend. And so it is Difficult to explain what happens in the game, maybe someone can but I do not 6 hackers out of 10 this game

Product received for free The Game has Similarities from the Build-up, as the Inventory and Combat System, to "Atonement: Scourge of Time," which is also from the same Developers. What I liked, but Data Hacker Initiation has something about it that pulls the Game down. This online World and Hacker Posturing Annoys in the Game and there is no direct Story taking place. You feel like an online MMORPG Game, where a new Character is created and you come into the World and you have to prove yourself first. This with Quests and different Areas. The Monsters are quite ok and the Combat System too, but the Game feeling is pushed down strongly through, "Login shit, Logging out, new Character etc" + Soundtrack + combat System + Monster + Achievements

The game lives through its story. You play a hacker in an online game that's become home for many people after an economic crash. Trying to figure out mysterious disappearances, you make your way through the glitching world. Are you what's causing the glitches? Is it something more sinister? Are you even a good guy? Some of the answers depend on the choices you make as you play, and as a big fan of Consequences in Games(TM), I like that a lot. It's a bit hard to get into the game mechanics at first, but once you've figured them out, they're pretty nifty. Learning stuff costs money, of which there isn't an overabundance. This prevents you from getting too strong too fast, unless you want to spend hours at a time making credits at the dodo races. (Which you might; I'm not judging.) A definite downside is the lack of any explanation, though. If you can't figure it out yourself, better hope someone on the forum has an answer, otherwise you're out of luck. All in all the game is a fun and smart challenge that lets you play at your own pace. If you like retro graphics and RPGs, you might want to check this one out.
