About Off Grid

Off Grid is a stealth and hacking game where data is your most powerful weapon.

Off Grid forgoes combat for hacking tools and ingenuity, and is extensively moddable. You play a technophobe single dad, Joe, who is oblivious to the world’s prying and spying, corporate-sponsored government until a series of dark events unfold. The contemporary storyline mirrors real-world events surrounding data privacy, and unique gameplay mechanics allow you to manipulate the world and people around you with the data they unwittingly leave behind.

It is within this dystopian surveillance state that you must figure out how to game the system undetected. Your motivation is simple: your tech-savvy daughter, Jen, has been forcibly taken from home by government agents.

It's a work of politics and a work of entertainment that's immediately interesting.

Who needs a shotgun? Off Grid makes data your most powerful weapon.

Andrew Webster, THE VERGE

Off Grid takes a satirical approach to the big brother problems that Snowden uncovered, and even the Snowden narrative itself.

Dann Sullivan, BIG BOSS BATTLE

Who hasn't wanted to break into high security buildings and computer systems, risking life & limb to bring down an over-reaching authoritarian regime? Certainly not me. You can't prove anything. And any proof is fake, and anyway I was hacked. I've definitely been hacked.

Nicoll Hunt, I FIGHT BEARS

Off Grid is honestly one of the most exciting game concepts I've seen in years; the pedigree of the people involved, and their intertwining with the hacking community makes this a real gem of a project and one to definitely keep a very close eye on. It's one of those games I'm confident will make *huge* waves in the games industry - both from a gameplay perspective, and a modding one, it's the sort of pioneer concept that everyone will be copying in 5 years' time.
