crypto realm
The Sandbox game

What is it that we all look for when taking on a new game for the first time? Storytelling, Gameplay, Artistic world building, Philosophy and so much more… 
‘Hack the Tao’ is one that aims to stimulate you on every level.

Before we dive deeper into the game, it is important to understand who the creator is. 
Hackatao: comes from the word “hacker” in its original meaning: “a person who faces intellectual challenges in order to avoid or to overcome the limits imposed on every aspect of his life by someone or something, in a creative way”; and the concept of “Tao”, that indicates the balance of chaos and order, meant as a living Whole in endless becoming. Keep these ideas in mind as you read on…

The story is one that has been told throughout humanity’s history, now it is being reimagined in the world of Web3 gaming. When entering Hack Land you will embody the hero - Lady Hack - and your task is to evolve as you encounter the blockades that permeate a centralised world. 
Each character in the game, whether friend or foe, pays homage to Hackatao’s artistic journey.
You will meet artworks that have come to life, ancient artists and evils as well as current day enemies of sovereignty. 
The Luminary Protagonist, the embodiment of those that seek to restore balance to the world of Crypto Art. Like any hero, she will have to evolve as she traverses the realms, becoming stronger and more adept along the way.
