Get your mouse and keyboard ready.Welcome to the Hypnospace Patrol Department, enforcer! Under the employ of Adrian and Dylan Merchant, owners of Merchantsoft and creators of Hynospace and the HypnOS, you’ll spend the next dozen or so hours scrolling through the pages of an alternate reality version of 1990s internet which users access in their sleep via an electronic headband. You’re here to wield your great big ban hammer over content infringements, illegal activity, malicious software and all other examples of law-breaking as set out in your enforcer’s handbook. Remember, C.H.I.M.E! Brace yourself for flashing neon fonts, obnoxious music, low quality GIFs, crude animations and terrible, terrible poetry. The early days of the interweb have been recreated meticulously here and they’re just as mad, bad and barmy as you may remember.As a parody of late ’90s GeoCities neighbourhoods and the often wacky homesteaders who created them, Hypnospace Outlaw is pretty much flawless. This is a game where you’ll trawl through an eerily accurate portrayal of the early web that’s split up into themed zones, such as the Goodtime Valley, Teentopia and Coolpunk Paradise, which are populated by a host of all-too-believable characters and dedicated to shady clairvoyance, conspiracy theories, teen chatter, embarrassingly amateur graphic design, terrible bands, oddball shamans and chatrooms full of naïve early adopters. You’ll download virtual pets, nightmarish wallpapers, screensavers, skins for your media player and obnoxious viruses that destroy your desktop and require expensive software to remove – and you’ll do it all for a steady drip-feed of Hypnocoin.Read the full article on nintendolife.comRead More
