Meet The Game That Lets You Hack ‘Jurassic Park’
Ryan Simmons / 5 years ago
Remember that scene from ‘Jurassic Park with young Lex hacking the computer system? Well if you if you do, you might have remembered the weird graphical file system that Lex used on the “UNIX system” SGI workstation. That file system is now yours to hack too in a new video game called ‘I Know This’.
The game basically turns the operating system seen in the movie into a playable game. It’s essentially a file system maze that you need to work your way through with the help of a Microsoft Clippy look-a-like. The aim is to weave through the maze finding nodes in the filesystem which can be ‘hacked’. The hacking essentially involves hitting as many keys on your keyboard at once.
The game, which was developed for Global Game Jam 2015, is quite simple, but actually quite addictive. It can be downloaded for free from here.
