High Entropy (WIP 20140304)

One of the key elements of the game's design, I wrote a little about my current plans in my previous post, is the operative system the player will use to interact with the computers. The game's computers will have important information in some of their files, emails... and will also be connected with other computers and devices (doors, turrets...) through local networks. The player will interact with the computer using GUIs, the easiest but more restricted way, or the more powerful command line interpreter, depending on the computer and situation. I want the command line interpreter to be easy to use (there will be books and other tips through the levels to help, but it should be quite intuitive, hopefully), something like a very basic version of DOS or bash, but interesting enough to have a feeling of really being 'hacking' the machine (exploring all the folders and files to find a useful program or someone's password, or connecting to other net devices to open doors, disable turrets... things like that).

I've been working on that for some time and, although not all the operative system's details are finished, the main functionality is working (file system, users, GUIs, CLI and networks), and I'm quite happy with it, so I've made a short video and some screenshots of one of my test maps to show you how it currently looks, and also the new weapons, LED signs and turrets I've been working on lately:
