Set in 2031, Mindjack puts players in the figurative shoes of a Mind Hacker fighting through a period of political unrest, where conspiracies are running wild. Players will join a team of rogue fighters, clawing for survival. Players can hack into the minds of enemies, vehicles, or civilians to control their respective abilities. Further, as players progress through the game, they will collect XP, which is used to expand their arts abilities.

Screenshots posted on the game's Web site reveal a muscled ape wearing goggles, male and females soldiers, and a large mechanized combat brute.

Mindjack is currently in development at Japanese studio Feelplus.
