Publisher Strategy First and Developer Introversion Software are happy to announce their North American publishing deal for Uplink: Hacker Elite, which will have gamers exploring PCs in a whole new way in Q1 2003.

“Uplink will show gamers a whole new side of the computer world,” says Steve Milburn, Director of Marketing for Strategy First. “We are very excited to be bringing this unique title to the PC market with Introversion Software.”

“We are very excited about this opportunity to present Uplink to American gamers,” says Thomas Arundel, Publishing Director for Introversion Software. “We are new team and are very pleased to be working with such a prestigious publisher.”

Uplink brings players into the depths of one of the world’s most intriguing settings: cyberspace. Gamers take on the role of an Uplink agent, working for large corporations and hacking into rival computer systems, stealing research data, sabotaging other companies, laundering money, erasing evidence, and framing innocent people. Stock markets can be influenced, personal records can be altered, and money can be transferred…sometimes into the wrong hands.


  • Original gameplay that gives players the opportunity to be freelance hackers
  • Freeform gameplay: Accept the missions that you want to play
  • Neuromancer rating: Let your morals guide you; save the net or watch processors melt. Uplink offers two totally different paths to ‘3l33t’ hacker status
  • Exciting Missions: Crack a bank, hack a rival into jail, crash the stock market, and get out before you’re caught
  • Thrilling action where players make those last 15 seconds count and feel the tension rise, as their signal is traced
  • Involving Plot: The computer underground can be a dangerous place, especially if you’ve got to stop the world’s deadliest virus
  • Choose your OS: Runs on Windows and Linux
