Hacktag is a promising new asymmetric co-op stealth/infiltration game in that plays like a blend of Mission Impossible and Keep Talking and Nobody Explodes, in which one player controls a Stealth Agent and another controls a Hacker as they attempt to infiltrate and take down corporations
Set in a parallel version of 2029, populated by anthropomorphic animals, players control mercenaries who carry out corporate espionage for competing corporations. Hacktag can be played online or with local split-screen multiplayer and requires co-operation and good communication for success in its diverse procedurally generated levels.
During missions one player controls the Stealth Agent and another controls the Hacker. The Stealth Agent must sneak through the isometric game world, using distractions and avoiding or taking out guards while making their way to the goal. The Hacker on the other hand hacks their way through a holographic blueprint of the level, interacting with cameras, doors, phones and other equipment to open the way up for the Agent and divert the attention of the guards.
Hacktag features three possible corporations to pledge your allegiance to, three different styles of missions, comprehensive character customisation options, online challenges, an intriguing narrative for each character, online leaderboards and unlockable skills. It’s an impressive game with a great concept and Hacktag has already quite a lot of praise and awards from the indie scene thanks to it’s intelligent asymmetric co-op gameplay.
