Well, they'd make a <sqrt(-1) game>, but they'd probably get sued by Apple

Dammit I've been gone for too long. *whines*
New IV games? Hell yes. And the concept of it *maybe* being an RPG alone is so promising that I'm drooling buckets here : D~

You know you've got my money. Introversion's games are teh roxors. As fot the writing plot thing, I'm rather good at it. I can bore people for 15 minutes straight with my glorious random hardcore fantasy generator, just off the top of my head.
(<plug>)
Speaking of shit plots, I encourage you all to look at my wonderful new regular (hopefully) action internet radio thingimagummy, hosted on my MSN blog.

RPG?

RPG from Introversion is too good to be true. Unless of course it won't run on Linux so that I'm not able to play :)

Given IV's track record, do you really think that *any* game from IV won't run on linux/mac?

I think that Introversion is going for one game in each catagory(Or several at one time[Or making their own]), then they'll start on Uplink II :D

I can't even begin to guess what <the third game> is... A single player and multiplayer game that is smaller(In size I assume, not in content) than any released before... I'm fucking stumped on that, but, at the very least, <the fourth game> with it's background stories and it's characters sounds an RPG... I just realized something: We know more about <the fourth game> than we do about <the third game>... backward bastards...
Humans are stupid... Evolve.

It's World of Uplink! An MMORPG/FPS with space age graphics and AIs that will fit on a 5-1/4" floppy! That's right, ladies and gentlemen, using quantom compression, WoU weighs in at a whopping 47 bytes! You (the player) take control of an elite hacker who has become trapped in an artificial world of human design. This world is composed of eire polygonal landscapes, rolling seas of data, strange fractal trees, and little green stickmen. You can test your prowess against other players, or play through in the single player campaign mode, where you will be presented with challenges that range from destroying flying monsters that could fry your brain, to puzzles and tests of reflexes, like the amazing reimplementation of Tetris and a box pushing minigame that is reminicent of Sokoban!

At least you wouldn't have to worry about item duping.
Don't think about The Game.

On a slightly lighter note, YAY!

Well, if that's your thing... I would have thought a couple of pints would do the job.

A few pints + a Indian (as in food) + a B52.

I hear Tom can be bribed with a Mig29 if you have one spare...
