Uplink Interview with Thomas Arundel
1:03 PM | Johan HansÚn | Comment on this story
Fragland has posted an interview with Thomas Arundel, director of Introversion Software, creators of the hacking simulator Uplink that is currently being ported to the Mac by Contraband Entertainment. The interview covers both how the company was started and where the idea for the game came from. Besides this, the layout of the game is also discussed.
From the interview:
Our attempts to make hacking very graphical, Johnny Mnemonic style, didn't work out too well, so we decided to cut back on the graphics and concentrate on the game-play. You, the player, assume the role of an elite computer criminal, and Uplink simulates what the character you play would see on his/her screen. Don't expect ground breaking graphics, but keep your ear tuned to a great soundtrack, and your mouse ready for some really intense game-play. There's a good plot, loads of hidden extras, and the free-form game-play lets you pick missions as you chooseTo read the whole inteview, follow the link below. Uplink is in late development and should be completed soon. The Macintosh version will be published by Ambrosia Software.
