Game Description:You're a hotshot computer hacker in the year 2010 -- an Uplink Agent, an expert in computer espionage employed by major corporations. You make your living by circumventing security systems, stealing important data, framing innocents, and disposing of the evidence. Invest your profits in better computer systems and tools to pull off ever more complicated and dangerous hacks. As your skills develop, you can attempt big jobs like influencing the stock market or creating the world's most devastating computer virus.
Uplink was originally self-published by the team that later became Introversion, and despite coming from a small developer and receiving little marketing, its popularity spread through the Internet and word of mouth. It was later picked up by Strategy First (with distribution by Infogrames) -- the Uplink: Hacker Elite edition is technically identical, but the original bubble-jet-printed indie release discs are still memorable collectables.
