About This Game

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.

The ingame IRC still works since the last update ~2004
11/11 would talk to random people again

More seriously, it is a fun game which is about hacking, and only hacking. It does a better job at it than any other game I've seen so far, so it gets an A+ in my scrapbook. Would be quite nice to get a remake with more game mechanics, but that is just wishing.
