Uplink in Beta Testing
10:12 AM | Andy Largent | Comment on this story
A quick new progress log update at Ambrosia Software announced the hacker-themed strategy game Uplink is now in beta testing for the Mac. The addictive PC title found popularity among those who fantasized about breaking into computer systems and manipulating data, without all the legality issues surrounding FBI raids.
The Ambrosia status page has a number of screenshots, along with a short description. Here's a clip from it:
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.Stay tuned for more information on Uplink, which is expected for both OS 9 and OS X systems sometime later this year.
