"Headless Swarm" Lands December 1, 2016!

November 21, 2016

Future Proof Games's cyberthriller Exploit: Zero Day is getting its first season of story, "Headless Swarm". Exploit: Zero Day runs in any modern browser, including on iPhone and Android. The "Headless Swarm" season costs $4.99, and will be available December 1, 2016. The first two hacking jobs are available immediately, and the remaining seven will be released over the upcoming months.

We're still in closed alpha, but purchasing "Headless Swarm" will get you immediate access to the rest of Exploit: Zero Day with no need to wait for a key via our mailing list.

Exploit: Zero Day is a cyberthriller with living story where you roleplay as a hacktivist by making and solving puzzles. Players are hackers participating in shared plots that challenge the authority and power of Samsara Digital, a company set on making money regardless of who gets hurt in the process.

In the "Headless Swarm" season, the mysterious Kilroy-sama approaches you to investigate the suspicious takeover of a consumer drone and you discover the history of the sinister OnyxHorde and their connection to an old friend. But why is Samsara Digital interested in these events? Who is their slick PR representative and what does she want? Can you save the Zero Day inner circle and stop a violent attack on innocents?

We're available for questions or interviews via email at info@futureproofgames.com.

    Exploit: Zero Day: Collecting Hacking Tactics

    In writing for Exploit: Zero Day, we need to have characters using hacking techniques that aren't too far off what we think is possible. Thing is, neither of us are (or have ever been) hackers.

    I (Melissa), however, have some specific sources I use to seed ideas for tactics characters might use: cybersecurity news.

    It sounds boring, like reading dry academic papers of new tweaks on cryptographic techniques. Or ho-hum, like yet another hospital attacked with ransomware.

    But not only are there some unusual events going on, there are also witty commentary, well-crafted journalism, and surprisingly science fictiony techniques at play. It's pretty fascinating to keep up on, even if you aren't specifically writing in the cyberpunk genre.

    So here's where I get my news in a pretty low-key way:
