On the 14th of march 2014 went on the 4th edition of St’hack, a computer security event in Bordeaux that consists of a whole day of security conferences followed up by a Capture The Flag contest, organized by security guru @agixid. For the 4th year, I’ve been part of the staff, taking care of CTF support at first, then UI design last year. I had the opportunity to create a challenge this year (and hand out pizza).
A basic hack n’ slash in which the hero has to move from chamber to chamber in the correct direction in a limited amount of room changes. If the hero changes too many rooms without finding the correct path, he loses. He can also get killed by cheaty ogres. There is also no information whatsoever, you are on your own.
