Hacknet is free and yours to keep till tomorrow

Have you ever tried your hand at videogame hacking?
Always covering your tracks.
Carefully picking through personal information.
Keenly avoiding detection.
Never getting caught.
Everything on the line.
Taking down unscrupulous corporate entities.
Hacking through terminals.
And contesting the media's claims.
Supposedly he died suddenly.
An accident they say.
For they want to dupe the public.
Regardless of the truth.
Everything you read is a lie.
Everything you hear is a lie.
Try Hacknet for free.
Right now through Saturday, July 14.
I think you'll like it.
And, like me, you'll come away convinced you're a super hacker spy.
Look, it's Friday. This seemed like a good idea before I started. 

Hacket is free to try on Steam from now through tomorrow at 10am PST / 6pm BST. Pick it up before then and it's yours to keep forever. After that, it costs £7.19/$9.99.

Here's its Steam blurb:
