The independent videogame developer Piece of Cake Studios is thrilled to announce that its award-winning title, Hacktag, the 2-player co-op stealth game with one agent and one hacker, is now available on Steam Early Access at 9 a.m. PDT for the reduced price of $14,99 plus a 25% launch discount off.

The Early Access version of Hacktag allows players to experience the core mechanics of the game both online and locally with a split screen mode. The experience system (with both passive and active skills) and some customization options are also already implemented. This first released version features 9 playable levels and the studio has plans to add more maps on a weekly basis. In the future, players can expect an upgrade to an infinity of levels thanks to a level generation system based on their feedback. The fans will be able to contribute to the final phase of the game’s development to really make a difference.

“Hacktag is an original concept with a challenging asymetrical gameplay which requires thorough testing and iteration. We’re counting on players feedback through suggestions and surveys during the early access to go even further with the game.” said Marine Lemaitre, Piece of Cake Studios co-founder.

In 2029, in a parallel world, you are a mercenary who secretly accomplishes missions for corporations struggling for leadership. To succeed, you will team-up with another and infiltrate corporations simultaneously in two ways:

  • As the stealth agent, infiltrating physically the level with an isometric 3D view and a fast infiltration gameplay with a rewarding arcade feeling. 
  •  Or as a hacker, infiltrating virtually the same level with a holographic blueprint vision. He moves on a virtual network to quickly hack and interact with the cameras, doors, phones, and even coffee machines.
