A Net Game
|NET ST@LKER is a new generation game that attempts to use the maximum of resources available on the net. At the beginning of the game, players must choose to join either La Fondation or The Movement. Players then battle it out for control of Internet through strategic search and tactical savvy.|
|While NET ST@LKER is not a real story, it is important to establish some
context. The setting is Internet. Internet is a global network interconnecting
thousands of dissimilar computer networks and millions of computers worldwide.
Over the past 20 years, it has evolved from its relatively obscure use by
scientists and researchers to its significant role today as a popular, user-friendly,
and cost-effective means of communication and information exchange. Millions
of people conduct business over the Internet, millions more use it for
entertainment, and some for criminal activities. Since the 80's a continuous
stream of security-related incidents has affected thousands of computer systems
and networks throughout the world. To address this menace, a growing number
of government and private sector organizations around the globe have
established a coalition to exchange information and coordinate response
Today the net faces a new threat, an unknown virtual band of cyberpunks have declared a cyberwar on the world. They are using the net for propaganda and psychological campaigns, political and cultural subversion, interference with local media, infiltration of computer networks and databases, and efforts to promote chaos. Hopefully La Fondation will be standing in their way. The purpose of La Fondation is to collect all the information on the cyberterrorists in order to fight them with their own weapons, and eventually win the netwar.
