Hypnospace Outlaw got a neat retro-style physical version (a CD included!)

The Internet reached its peak around 2000, when the website was ugly and beautiful, with rotating images, rolling subtitles and 10,000 fonts on each page. After all, if you didn’t express them all in gif format, how can you let your crush know that you are a dynamic, interesting character and have a wide range of hobbies?

Hypnospace Outlaw is a game that venerates and satirizes the online aesthetics of the late 90s and early 00s through Hypnospace (an Internet version that you can browse in your sleep). You are portrayed as a law enforcer, a version of a cyber police, fighting against all kinds of bad things such as copyright infringement, bullying, and viruses. You will surf the web, find all kinds of nasty teen content next to charming fan sites, and fight them like some kind of terrible government-approved party poop. Or, maybe, you can escape the rules in some way, you cool kid, you.
