Hi, this is my first post so forgive me if this has already been asked before, but I was wondering if anyone has made a hacking mini-game for EP. Instead of rolling dice to determine if a character succeeds, I was thinking of making my players play a type of dexterity mini-game similar to how you hack things in Mass Effect 2. It could be something as simple as a "memory" style matching game, or having to traverse a maze in a specified time period, but I think something like that would be a lot of fun and add some real tension to the game instead of just rolling a die. As the player gets better at hacking, he or she would have more time to play the "game," and depending on the difficulty of the hack, the "game" would be more or less complex. I was even thinking of making a simple racing game where the hacker has to get to the "finish line" to complete the hack before the "AI" player gets there first or intersects the hacker, which would simulate a "hunter-killer program" trying to stop the hacker. I don't know if this is making any sense, but I'd love to hear peoples' thoughts. Thanks!
