Hello everybody! Dividebyzer0 team here.
..aand we are happy to introduce you the BYTE - our current work-in-progress game about hackers, networks, and cyber-worms, for PC/OS X/Linux.
Arrows - moving worm on the grid
Spacebar - downloading
R - level restart
Shift - scanning mode
D/F - zoom-in/out
BYTE – is a top-down stealth-puzzle game, where player controls a sneaky cyber-worm and performs some malicious deeds in the network of the near future.
Main gameplay may kinda remind of “Snake” from your old Nokia phone: every time you steal valuable data, your cyber-worm is getting longer, which makes it harder to control and evade anti-viruses.
A game is worth a thousand words, so we’ve prepared a little alpha demo for you.
It’s demonstrating not only the game mechanics, but the graphics and music/sounds (still subject to change, though), as well as the bit of a story, which takes part in full version of the game’s plot.

Plans for the future
We are planning to add asynchronous multiplayer and economics to the game (say “goodbye” to release anytime soon).
Right now, the vision is this: players will able to make and upgrade their own levels (or “servers” in game’s term), store and sell data, and most importantly – steal data from one another. The multiplayer part is always-on and completely integrated in singleplayer experience, so you will see on your global map story missions as well as other player’s servers.
Aaand thats it, for now.
Desperately waiting for your feedback, guys
Have a happy hacking!
