I have been playing uplink for a little while now and decided to make a game with the similar idea of it, just for fun, I would like any suggestions or ideas to make it well.

I was thinking of making it Plaer Vs Player into the future sometime soon, so you could steal each others files and stuff.
Thanks ;)

That'd be great.

Might be nice if you ever finish it.  There have been many similar projects started in these forums, and as far as I know only BladeNet (Agent Jessica/Starfyre) is showing any development.  That said, good luck ;)

If Uplink is a trademark name, it's illegal to use a name similar to Uplink.  Netlink and Uplink is close enough to become a lawsuit.  And another thing, don't make a clone.  Clones suck.  They think they can do a better job than the original.  They want to take some of the action.

I am pretty sure that Mindlink didn't get sued by uplink.. Plus, Superkat may have it freeware because he said he is making it just for fun.

- Thanks ;)

*edit*
Oh, and the icons in the bottom right hand corner are for full screen mode and the other one makes the screen 1024x768 (my default) and the button in the upperleft quits

Hmm... making progress - which is good, and can't be said for a lot of the other projects in existance (not mine though ^_^ we're just slow)

I wouldn't worry too much about the name - I don't think they could register Uplink as a copywright or anything, it's a valid word from the dictionary and AFAIK dictionary words can't be regged - like Windows
what.up('yo');

The reason why the link doesn't work is that there is a </a> on the end.
BTW, great looking game!

Just so you know, copyright law prohibits the EXACT NAME of a software title.  If a company decided to make Doomed (insted of Doom) it would be legal.  

The same goes for music, You could take the guitar riff from 'Smells like Teen Spirt' by Nirvana, change one chord, And it would be legal by copyright standards :P

WOW! This is the only project (other that Darksigns), that has all the makings to become a good game.
