To those of you familiar with Darwinia, this might not be anything new, chronologically it most certainly ain't new.
Anyways, was looking through the bonus features of my Ghost in the Shell Issue 7 Series 1 Stand Alone Complex DVD & came across a game to do with the laughing man, which turns out to be a little mod of a demo of the game Uplink, from Introversion software, a small 4 man team...
Anyways, its around 2-3 years old as far as I can see, but playing the demo I'm hooked, it really is very unique & completely different to anything I'd normally play.
Basically you play as a Hacking Agent for a company, kind of a freelance hacker, & you have to basically take on jobs (any you want, its very open in this way, even if the early jobs are fairly same-old same-old), hacking into different company computers & doing naughty hacker like things. All this gets you paid by your benefactor from whom you have accepted the job, thus allowing you to upgrade your equipment & software, thus helping you hack.
Anyway, its obscenely addictive & despite being graphically simple, is extremely polished & enjoyable.
I just wanted to see if anyone has played this game, & to maybe get some people into it, as its great, I'm not sure about £25 for the full game, but the demo has me hooked & I am seriously considering it, especially as it would provide me a good little game for when I go to Japan if need be as it runs on even the most base of computers...
