12:46 PM | Tuncer Deniz | Comment on this story
IMG has posted a preview of Ambrosia's Uplink. In the 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.
Here's a clip from the preview:
The first thing that struck me about Uplink was its level of immersion. The first time you launch the program, you are taken through the initialization and registration process with the Uplink Corporation. The game exists within its own interface and operating system. As you entrench yourself within the reality of Uplink, you can play the stock market -- and influence that stock market, upgrade your computer, buy more hacking tools and even steal bank funds. Eventually, if your rating improves enough, you are presented with a plot filled with intrigue. You can play the story line or do your own thing. It's up to you. There's even a built-in IRC module (once you can afford to purchase it within the game). Yes, real Internet Relay Chat -- internet connection required. What's a game about hacking if you can't access IRC?Be sure to check out the rest of the preview.
