The 90s Internet simulator and all-around well-written game Hypnospace Outlaw is about to get a whole lot bigger. First announced earlier this month, mod support is finally here. The original game had players searching through webpages to find hidden data that went against the rules. The simplicity of that gameplay leaves for a lot of opportunities to expand, and that’s exactly what publisher No More Robots hopes will happen thanks to these new tools.
The Modding Update for Hypnospace Outlaw is out NOW!

Here’s a full list of what players can add to the game using the modding update. Long story short, if it’s already in the game, you can tweak it to your heart’s content:
- Images and gifs
- Wallpapers and screensavers
- Music and samples themes
- OS Graphical Themes
- Your own zones
- Your own cases and stories
- Citizens and Characters
- Download files
- Custom Scripts and Custom Applications
- Player Progression Logic
While the game is on Steam, mods are completely self-contained within an internal menu. Already available are a few cheats scripts, a Windows 95 theme, and a page with a new song by in-game band Seepage. Mods can be stacked on top of the base campaign, which our reviewer said “provides hours of entertainment through its clever puzzles and dozens of unique webpages.”
To celebrate the mod support, No More Robots has put Hypnospace Outlaw on sale for 20% off for the next week. Considering the success some other indie developers have had with mod support on the platform, it seems like a great move for any game with suitable gameplay and framework (which, can be a challenge to set up if not planned). Even if you’re not the creative type, it will likely be worth stopping by in a few months to see what nostalgic tweets the diehard community has cooked up for this point and click hidden gem.
