Why did we build it?

EA has been criticised many times for their anti-consumer practices, including pricy lootboxes, numerous paid DLCs, and the pay-to-win nature of many of their games. We felt that parodying them would be an interesting and unique concept for a game.

The game also presents an interesting opportunity for aspiring young coders to experience a more minor infosec/"hacking" experience, including a terminal based hack that instills some programmatic thinking in them. We hope to expand this game to much more challenging hacks, for people of a higher level. (Such as neural network based Captcha solves, or XSS)

What are we proud of?

It actually works TM

What could we improve on?

when 7 people in total couldn't troubleshoot one pesky modal

What have we learned?

don't use modals
