on the Internet of 2010
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.
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.
