It Was Hack at First Sight… Two Players Take on the Role of a Physical Agent and a Virtual Hacker to Steal Corporate Data

PARIS, Feb 14, 2018 – Piece of Cake Studios, an independent videogame studio specializing in co-op games, announced that its award-winning co-op stealth game, Hacktag, has launched today for #pc and Mac via Steam. The isometric game, which features both solo and two-player modes, pairs a physical Agent and a virtual Hacker as they secretly infiltrate corporations and “liberate” their data. The game is on sale at launch for $14.99/€14.99, 25% off the normal price of s$19.99/€19.99 and a special event will also run during the launch week with special items to unlock. Forget the box of chocolates—Hacktag is the perfect Valentine’s Day gift as partners can spend time playing together locally or online!

Set in 2029 in a parallel world populated by cute, anthropomorphic animals, Hacktag is a fast-paced two-player co-op stealth-game with asymmetric gameplay. One player is an Agent in the field while the other is a virtually-infiltrated Hacker. Hired as mercenaries by competing corporations, the two players work together—with an element of competition—to carry out espionage missions via online or local co-op. In single player mode, one player switches between the two roles.

“We formed #pieceofcake Studios so we could play games together, and #hacktag is designed to be a truly fun co-op experience that’s very intuitive while providing exciting challenges,” said Marine Lemaitre Freland, Co-Founder and CEO of #pieceofcake Studios. “Whether you’re a game-playing couple, buddies looking for a new couch co-op game, or a solo gamer, we hope #hacktag makes your Valentine’s Day more enjoyable.” https://youtu.be/CufeyuYQnEA 
In Hacktag, the Agent moves physically through a corporate building level while the Hacker moves alongside electronically via network nodes. As the Agent avoids physical guards (watch out for those pandas!), the Hacker avoids anti-virus software moving through the network, with both players seeking to hack computers to steal the data required for mission success. While some tasks can be accomplished by either player, many tasks require the cooperation of both—for instance, opening a locked door requires the Hacker to electronically unlock it while the Agent physically opens it. Other features include:
 
  • Online and local multiplayer: Play separately or share the same screen using keyboard/mouse and/or game controllers
  • Single player mode: Simultaneously handle the dual roles of Agent and Hacker in frantic, fast-paced gameplay
  • Original asymmetrical gameplay and co-op mini-games: With the timer ticking, deactivate alarms and unlock doors or holding cells
  • “Co-opetitive" gameplay: As mercenaries, your partner is also your best competitor!
  • Three corporations, three mission types and 24 levels
  • Gain experience and add unlockable skills: Choose new active or passive skills as you gain levels
  • Online challenges, ranking and leaderboards
  • Full character creation: Customize your anthropomorphic animal character with more than 360 unlockable items
  • Unique story for each player: Experience Hacktag’s story with each role getting its own unique NPCs
