Over the last two weeks I’ve been working on the offline version of Top Secret. The ‘offline version’ allows you to play without an internet connection and every purchase of Top Secret comes with an offline copy!

What does a Top Secret NSA email client look like?

Mutt email client - terminal based black background with white text All mail clients suck. This one just sucks less. - Mutt slogan

Mutt is a text-based email client made in 1995. Despite its age and minimal UI, it’s still used today by security conscious people such as Christopher Soghoian, Principal Technologist at the ACLU. It might be ugly, but the small codebase, and the fact it doesn’t run in the browser make it harder for adversaries to attack you via email.

The offline version of Top Secret is designed to be a (much!) simpler version of Mutt. It’s completely keyboard controlled and supports many of the same key bindings as Mutt. Take a look!

ps. I’ve been playing around with colour schemes. Let me know which one is your favourite in the forum.

Black and white colour variant Black and white - for the chromaphobes

Black and white colour variant Black and blue - dash of colour

Black and white colour variant Green - real hackers use green text

Black and white colour variant Solarized - the One True Colour Scheme
