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.

*Real Events*

I sit back in my chair as the Database swiftly searches through the profiles counting from A-Z, as I wait patiently I reminise about the time where I was a mere novice, slowly cracking passwords and deleting logs yet here I am, a millionairre with the best equipment money can buy. When the database stops on the name I check my email and do as requested and when I am done I confirm it and reply. I wait for confirmation before disconnecting and deleting my logs just incase there was a spelling error. The email comes as expected so I disconnect and proceed to delete my logs from INTERNIC, I connect, select admin, choose the passwor- and then everything goes black. My heart stops, what happened? Has the game frozen? Did I press the windows key? No my hand was only on my mouse it's impossible but then wh- and it hits me harder than a brick to the back of the head. It was over, atleast that's how it seemed but that was impossible, I deleted my logs, there was no trace or proof what was going on?! I frantically waited for what seemed like hours as I stared at my own reflection awaiting the inveitable...It was over, my gateway terminated, I had failed. All the time spent learning and perfecting my skills wasted all because I had forgotton 1 log or at the expense of just my gateway turning on my motion sensor.

10/10 Would become millionairre and then lose it all because I'm an idiot again.

Fun to learn and exhilerating to master. One of those games that forces the player to break into the 'fun'.

For those who enjoy enigmatic, yet, deep gameplay; games where you find the story on your own; a sandbox experience with a tough climb to the top.

Worked as a hacker for infamous hacker agent corporation, hacked into their system itself, stole personal info of all other hackers, and made them got arrested by FBI. Several months later, got arrested on the accusation of spreading dangerous computer virus on the internet. I regret nothing.

10/10 would frame other hackers and destroy the internet again.
