Midnight Protocol is described as “Story-driven tactical RPG set in the near future – the time of automated labor, big data, controversial AI applications, gray areas in legislation and the hazy nature of online identity”

Users will have to hack servers, bypass security systems and decrypt data to help the protagonist, a hacker under the pseudonym Data, find those who are blackmailing him. He will be able to use various disguises, as well as buy software and hardware on the black market. Just like the hero himself, the player will only use the keyboard. As you enter commands, sounds are played that become “Part of the soundtrack.”

Midnight Protocol will not have complex gameplay mechanics: the authors focused on the story and atmosphere “Digital war”. The development of the plot will be determined by the decisions made by the user. A hacker can help the police find fraudsters, or he can blackmail others and break into someone else’s bank accounts. Depending on his actions, his reputation will turn black, gray, or white. Promised “Dozens of secondary tasks full of Easter eggs and references”
