They say in their FAQ that they have someone translating for them because they don't speak English very well...  Hopefully that person does a good job. The game looks cool, but may be annoying to play if I have to sift through and decrypt some of their English.  *shrug*  Maybe it's just me.

Been watching this from the sidelines and I have to say something (damn civil liberties). Some people say "screw" Uplink and get this when it comes out and others say "don't see, don't hear, don't speak." Introversion knew that Uplink was going to be unique and it is. They also knew that it would open a Pandora's Box including clones and warez. Meanwhile they are due support, respect, and the honor of being original then it should be ok to try something else. Humans like variety or else they get bored (and some already are bored of Uplink, go figure).

Aren't we being just the tiniest bit disloyal, here? We're praising a game from a rival company on the forum of the makers of Uplink, one of the most amazing games I've played in a long time.  There was the gentleman (not) with the advice to f*ck Uplink. Now, I know if I get the chance, I probably will purchase this game.  But it really doesn't seem right to possibly take away Introversion Software's future business. Go ahead and flame me if you feel it necessary, but I for one don't agree with this.

i think Hackr and Uplink is quite different, so its not a shame to talking about Hackr in this forum.
(im sure Chris and Intorversion dont worry about this...)

From another point of view: Uplink will be the Best "hacker" game all the times, and im sure Introversion will make Uplink Online much-much better than hackr or any other prog... Hackr is a different game but in the same "feeling" like Uplink, and the best place to talking about "Uplink-like" games is the uplink forum, ehhm?

last thing: im almost sure, the HHGames boys will be got a mail from a big publisher/developer company soon... and the Hackr will not free, and will be not finish at this summer:) Or they will run out of money before they can launch their online-services:( soo Hackr is too good to be true i think...

ps: maybe im too depressive?:)
