Uplink 1.3.2 has been released
An enigma in itself, Uplink is akin to a more cerebral incarnation of Ambrosiais popular Escape Velocity series of games, with missions that interweave a threaded plot which is unveiled with each conquest. Only this time, you have only your intellect, hacking skills, and the computer systems youive compromised to aid you.
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. It will take you to the darker corners of the Internet, to the very underbelly of the beast.
