Greetings Enforcer, and thank you for enlisting in the Hypnospace Patrol Department! As the corporatocracy sleeps, outlaws are out there committing terrible transgressions all across our beloved Hypnospace, and these virtual streets aren't going to police themselves! Hypnospace Outlaw is a '90s internet simulator in which you scour Hypnospace's wide variety of weird and wonderful websites to hunt down wrongdoers, while also keeping an eye on your inbox, avoiding viruses and adware, and downloading a plethora of apps that may or may not be useful. As part of your job as a Hypnospace Enforcer, you'll be watching out for copyright infringement, internet bullying and more, with reports and rewards coming direct from the Hypnospace Patrol Department to your inbox. In your spare time, you can customize your HypnOS desktop however you see fit, with a variety of downloads, wallpapers, screen savers and helper bots to keep you company. So slip on your Hypnospace Headband™, and keep these key directives in mind: Crawl through Cyberspace: Scour the darkest corners of the Web for scumbag users who violate Hypnospace law! Dangers and delights: Download groovy GIFS and MIDI files, but watch out for adware, toolbars and hackers! Treasure hunting: Do your job to earn Hypnocoins, or ignore your inbox and go hunting for hidden pages, downloads and secrets! Relive your childhood: Equip obnoxious screensavers and skins for your desktop, and wiggle your mouse pointer around to make pages load faster!

Audience Reviews

7 / 10.0
The '90s were a crazy and nostalgic time on the internet. Web pages full of low-resolution GIFs, viruses, profile pages, and overall teen angst. There's no other time like the 90's internet space and Hypnospace captures that perfectly in an exaggerated style. Retro/Vapor/Synthwave type aesthetics flood your screen with an actual simulated 90's PC with HypnOS installed on it.
