Hey
Woulden't Uplink be better if you had more than one person working on It. Lets face it people I may be new. But I know potential when I see it. Two brains are better than one. That and Uplink truely it the walking, living proof that. Oldschool games and the good oldschool style of gameing will live on forever. And Ultimately overpower newer 3D high tech games.:cool:

Time will only tell if Chris takes on another programer. I do think that work would progress much faster if there was more than one person programing, but I think Chirs want's to keep it like it is.

Plus, with two people, it is more likely that they will have disagreements about how to do something or what to do about something.  With more than one person, you run the risk of conflict.

...and the risk of buggier code if the two don't communicate properly/fully.
An extra person or 2 to do the artwork, and/or story, wouldn't be a bad idea tho. Free up some of Chris's time.

Sorry to be the one to point out the obvious, but if you check the Introversion site, I think you'll find Chris is the only coder, and the others are in the business side of things.
