Hacknet is free on Steam for just one more hour, so grab it while you can

Popular hacking simulator Hacknet is currently free on Steam as part of a limited giveaway. The promotion ends at 6pm BST tonight (10am PT), so grab it while you can. 

We haven’t reviewed Hacknet ourselves, but a free game is a free game. What have you got to lose? It usually retails for £7.19, in case you were wondering.

Unusually, Steam user reviews of the game have been more or less unanimously positive, and square with a healthy 82 rating on Metacritic.

The game places you in the shoes of a hacker as you aim to complete missions for a hacking group called Entropy. It’s a simple premise, but the aesthetic, pulsing soundtrack, and gradually intertwining storylines create an experience that’s apparently really fun.

Although the base game is free for a limited time, the expansion pack Labyrinths will still set you back £5.19.

For the ultimate hacking experience, make sure you grab the clackiest keyboard you can find. Our guide to the best gaming keyboards has some fine recommendations.

You’ve got just one hour to go to grab the deal, so act fast.
