File://maniac is a clever little cyber-thriller puzzle adventure where you modify the game files to solve puzzles as you attempt to hunt down a murderer.
In File://maniac you follow an agent who is attempting to hunt down a killer who you have tracked down to their lair. The game plays a little like a point and click adventure, but you’ll have to search the actual game files to find clues and you’ll often have to modify the game files in different ways to solve the puzzles.
Taking around 15 minutes to play through, it’s a fun little game with excellent pixel art animation, a great sense of atmosphere and lots of inventive game file-based puzzles. It’d be nice to have a tiny bit more narrative, but even as it stands it’s a great little puzzle adventure that really puts the “cyber” into cyberpunk.
