Reign Edition is a cybersecurity competition like no other, as this year’s competition transpires within a 2D dungeon crawler platformer game. You will hack through server rooms, interact with AI robots, decrypt secret messages, and navigate your way throughout the laboratory to fulfill your quest. However, not everything is as it seems, and you must use your wits and cunning to progress through rooms of increasing difficulty to ultimately unravel the truth. Participants should expect to be tested on their knowledge of cybersecurity, computer science, mathematics, cryptography, and critical thinking skills in general.
