Hey :D

Recently im running a star wars campaign, and i'd like to provide my players with an interface they can use for when they access terminals in game.
I'm looking for something that can let them read messages, hack systems, discover informations, etc.

I'm not looking for anything fancy nor necessarily star wars related.
I want PCs to be able to enter simple text commands (like "read message 1" or "hack system") and the interface should display text that i previously have prepared.
I'd like the ability to have sound or special effect (i want something like a countdown to destruction in case hacks fail) or triggering visual alarms.

Something like a mini text adventure basically. This would play on a local laptop that i can use during sessions.
Anybody can help me?

Maybe something like a couple of throwaway gmail addresses and a wiki (so they can do "research", maybe with some flash games included to simulate "hacking").
