Such a shame there hasn't been too much support this game. WIth Browser games such as Slave Hack, Hacker Experience and the like pulling in a large player database, it is a shame that we haven't seen this little gem of a game expanded on, drawn out, upgraded and released for sale. Forty, fifty bucks easy.

How do you win in multiplayer? how are you supposed to locate opponent's computer? scanning every possible machine dosen't show their location. Their logs don't show up on computers they've acessed, *Friend did NOT delete logs* so there is no way to get their IP.

I'm not gonna get arrested for playing this game am I? Cause I'd really love to play it, but I'm afraid I'll actually be doing something illegal. >.<
