Main Story

The year is 2048. Vapor Corp develops an artificial intelligence network to aid human kind, known as the Vapor Web. However, driven by greed and a desire to create profits for their corporate shareholders, Vapor Corp becomes negligent. The Vapor Web is reprogrammed to maximize profits, no matter the consequences. The Vapor Web no longer sees humans as an ally, but as a resource. Humans are enslaved, and their minds connected into the Vapor Web. While Earth has fallen, Mars remains as the last human outpost. Mars billionaire and philanthropist Mr. Muskrat has a secret weapon to combat Vapor Corp. They uploaded the collective human consciousness into a single artificially intelligent mind called Squally. Squally must hack his way through the Internet and destroy the Vapor Web.

Bitwise Card Game
Hexus

Squally will be made up of several different mini games that the player will jump between, all tied together by the core storyline. The first of these minigames we’ve designed is a card game called Hexus that teaches the basics of binary and hex using monsters with stats represented by binary numbers, players will influence the battle by playing cards that represent basic binary manipulation concepts such as shift bits right, shift bits left, flip bits, or XOR. Later minigames will draw upon this knowledge as players use the skills they’ve learned to hack the game itself and defeat enemies that would be impossible to beat without cheating, this binary representation is how your computer stores every piece of information on your hard drive.

What Is Squally?
Squally is a 2D multi-genre game that teaches video game hacking -- WITHOUT boring lessons, lectures, nor the need for prior experience. Instead, Squally teaches hacking through fun engaging puzzles where learning is a by-product.
01
What does it mean to “hack” something, what is Squally teaching you to do?
We want to teach the low level computer science skills that people would only typically encounter through a traditional 4 year university CS program. These skills are data types, data structures, base systems (bin/dec/hex), and x86 assembly, all of which are fundamental to every running piece of software on your computer.
02
Do I need to know how to code to play Squally?
Squally is here to teach you! We don’t expect players to know anything besides how to add and subtract numbers prior to playing Squally.
03
What will gameplay be like?
Because learning Computer Science linearly would boring we decided it would be best if you could jump from concept to concept applying what you’ve learned as you go. Squally will be made up of several different mini games that the player will jump between, all tied together by the core storyline. The first of these minigames we’ve designed is a card game called Hexus that teaches the basics of binary and hex using monsters with stats represented by binary numbers, players will influence the battle by playing cards that represent basic binary manipulation concepts such as shift bits right, shift bits left, flip bits, or XOR.

Why are you qualified to do this?
Both of the founders / developers of Squally obtained a 4 year CS degree and have worked in the industry for many years. Zachary has had a passion for memory editing and glitching since before he could program and is the author of a popular, free and open source game hacking software called Squalr.
