  • When I see gameplay that takes a different approach and offers a different sort of experience it immediately appeals to me, and that’s an essential part of the indie spirit. That said, taking the road not yet travelled also obviously carries some risks with mechanics that and play tuning that need to be worked out to come up with an engaging and enjoyable experience. While SpyHack has the somewhat futuristic cyberpunk hacker aesthetics, some lingo, and elements that work, the problem is that there’s no question the experience is on the clunky side. You’re really working as spy support for the likes of characters you’re used to playing the active role for, hacking doors and systems to help clear the way for your agent’s success. While in theory this could be exciting it’s unfortunately quite a bit more redundant than you’d likely hope and just honestly too much of a struggle to enjoy. New and different can be good, but this feels a few iterations away from being ready for prime time.
