The storyline of the game begins with the player receiving an e-mail from a deceased top ranking Uplink agent concerning the research done by the Andromeda Research Corporation, related to the Andromeda organization which proclaims the destruction of the Internet. It is constructing a computer virus known as Revelation using artificial life research as a base in an attempt to destroy the world wide net. One of the companies, Arunmor, attempts to cross their plans by developing Faith, a counter virus that can purge Revelation. The player can choose between two companies or even ignore the plot in its entirety, concentrating on freelance hacking, in which case the storyline plays out without the player's participation.
The game is 2D based and has no real eyecandy.


but the possibilities are many, you can change peoples Academic records. You often get missions to do so.


The important thing when doing such things are not to get caught doing it, and remove all trace of that you have done it.

The game is built up so that the instant you break in somewhere, an "active trace" is trying to pin you down... and the only way of slowing it down is by "bouncing" your connection through multiple servers


Of course, to make things worse... you will leave logs behind you that says where you have been and where you have changed things, so you must remove those before "the hacked" sees that you have been there and changed stuff and follows the leads back to you (an Passive trace)

You do not know when someone starts an "Passive trace"... you only get an message that you have been caught if you screwed up somewhere...
Overall, it is an exciting game that have many possibillities, becuase that the main plot is not neccesary to play through... and if you ignore it, it will go in its own way in the background



oh... and to add... There is also a built in IRC chat system there


I hope that you will try it
A demo is availiable HERE

I have gametap, so I have the full version.

It's actually very fun, for a game that you don't do much in, but a lot of the jobs are really annoying. unless you have a photographic short-term memory you'll want a notepad handy.
