You know how Arunmor doesn't even let their admins know about framing the ARC CEO...

It is, it makes Uplink2 possible. Doesn't matter what they say, people change their minds.

I'll tell you this now, no one will bother reading what you write because you are writing like this.

I heard Introversion doesnt do sequels


My question is.....Why??

I would like to know why.

I mean is it an Artist's thing, a UK think or what. Im not trying to be an ass or anything. I just want to know.

I mean, ive read the manifesto, so i might think its an artist thing, and how they dont like to revisit old works. But to be honest, while I do consider Video Games, artful and impressive. I dont understand why, if the fans are wanting it, then why wouldn't it be considered at least.

It seems at least from my POV when reading the forums, the fans would like to see an Uplink 2, or an Uplink Online. So why wouldnt you think about it. Now im not saying drop what your doing and do that. But its one of the things you can add into your cycles when you consider your next project. or at least next free space in the development cycle.

I'm currently learning about building games in school, and once i finish I would be willing to throw my hat in the ring on any Uplink 2 or Uplink online project if one ever happens.

But regardless of my possible involvement. I would still like to see something come about from this. because to be honest alot of good games have been made better by having an online component. and Uplink has sooooo many possibilities. I mean i had an instance where it would of come in handy when I was hacking a complex Lan. I could see the possibility of such a thing like coop hacking and such, or counter-operative hacking, watching out for the bad guys who are real people trying to track you down. and so on and so forth.

I know someone will reply with a negative comment about this. But I still believe its a good idea that shouldnt be tossed out.'

People seem awfully militant about the No Uplink 2/Online...

So when is Uplink2 :Online, coming out?

o.O

AgentExeider: They don't do sequels as they feel once it has been done, they move on.

As cool as all of thees ideas are I think IV has the right to leave it be because if they get involved in a sequel people will want to see more security more difficult security, better by passers, crackers, etc. they would be getting into a lot of work when they be putting out another innovative game. Look at Darwinia and Defcon i wouldn't ever give those up for a Uplink 2 no matter how much they said they would put in it. As for online they are way too many ways you could exploit the game world how much fun would it be for to have 200 people sitting in the InterNIC logs swallowing your IP every time you route through it and then immediately hacks and deletes everything on your term? (Sure they could like PC's ingame and not let you access but people would whine and complain either way)
