|MindJack is a futuristic shooter that lets players freely jump into the bodies of people, creatures, and even mechs to complete objectives. In the year 2031, you are part of a rogue team of special agents trying to stop an evil corporation's latest technology from being used against an unwitting populace.

Similar in concept to Deus Ex, MindJack allows you to use these skills to approach situations in multiple ways.
You can directly engage groups of enemies simply by shooting at them, for example, try to sneak up behind them, or attempt to use social skills to extract helpful information. In addition to the story-driven campaign, MindJack also provides a virtual playground that can be freely altered by online players, as participants hack into the minds of soldiers, beasts, and other potential targets to interact with the world however they see fit. Characters can arm themselves with an assortment of upgradeable weapons, or they can engage foes in hand-to-hand combat using real-life fighting techniques.
