High tech computer crime and industrial espionage on the Internet.
You play an Uplink Agent who makes a living by performing jobs for major corporations. Your tasks involve hacking into rival computer systems, stealing research data, sabotaging other companies, laundering money, erasing evidence, or framing innocent people.
You use the money you earn to upgrade your computer systems, and to buy new software and tools. As your experience level increases you find more dangerous and profitable missions become available. You can speculate on a fully working stock market (and even influence its outcome). You can modify peoples academic or criminal records. You can divert money from bank transfers into your own accounts. You can even take part in the construction of the most deadly computer virus ever designed.
Hello beautiful people of ModDB!
As I've said in the announcement article, I've implemented most of the backbone for the mod. That means that I'm now steadily putting content back into the game, and so, for the last couple of weeks, I've been working on Uplink's windows. The old system was pretty primitive, in that you could only have one window opened at a time and they were static. Not anymore!
The tabbed browsing is the one I'm most proud about, since now you don't have to wonder through numerous windows to find what you want and have also helped me to double-down greatly on ergonomics.
The only windows left to create are the LAN Viewer and the Cheets Screen(!), but I'll have to get back to them later, since I really need to start creating the Apps!
Without further ado, here are a few close-ups!

You no longer have to open the "View Gateway" screen now. You have all the information you need about your PC in a single screen!
I hope that you enjoyed reading this and that I'll see you around next time when I'll be talking about the Apps.
PS: Screenshot dump!

From Introversion comes this gem of a game, Uplink. In the futuristic year of 2010, you are hired as an agent of the Uplink Corporation. A Corporation that specializes in computer crimes. From there you will hack, steal and sabotage your way to wealth and infamy. What is left to say about this game? Besides being extremely addicting I found it to be great fun. The thrill of braking into a bank or framing someone for crimes is made all the more exciting by the increasingly faster pings of the tracert…
