Buying Uplink

Do you buy it outright, or do you download, play, and register it in 30 days?

Cheers,

I bet it will be the second one, but there is also a bonus disk for the game. Will you get that when you buy the game, or do you have to send for it separately? And will the bonus disk be made downloadable or stay in CD format?

As this is Ambrosia, I would assume that the latter will always be an option.

Ferazel still had a demo. And it can almost be guaranteed that Uplink will, at the very least, have a demo since there is a demo on the PC side. And, this being Ambrosia, it's quite likely that it will be crippleware (unlockable) since that is what Ambrosia usually does.

You download it and play it, and purchase a license code for it, just like (almost) all of our games.

Yes, I have a strong feeling that I will buy uplink. For me to buy a shareware game , I need to be fully convinced. Pop-Pop didn't quite do the trick for me. Hopefully uplink will. 🙂

It's a good game coming from the Windows side. I already purchased it a year ago. However, you mac people are lucky. Whole try before you buy thing.

Bah. Not fair. I was only able to de about half a dozen missions on the Windows version before that ever-annoying cutoff point. Bah.

And what will Ambrosia be doing with the bonus disc? It was really cool stuff, including old old buggy versions of Uplink, but alot of it related to Introversion, so it wouldn't really fit if Ambrosia were to sell it.

The bonus disk is a special Introversion feature. I'm sure Ambrosia will not have it; although they may have something like it... Like the beta version. 😉

What I'm looking forward to is Ambrosia having more Uplink chronicles than Introversion has of Fan-Fics. 😄

The PC demo is like 1.4 MB so I think even the lowliest modem would be able to handle that 🙂

The complete mod archive on the other hand takes up a significant chunk of time. If you want to download it...

I definately plan to download it. Uplink looks awsome. I hail Ambrosia in general.

Has anyone ever heard of a fix for noobkillerTD?

I would imagine that Ambrosia would ship or have the bonus disc downloadable, perhaps without the early buggy versions. Or perhaps it will only be available if you buy the Uplink code and ASW disc, with a passworded stuffit archive. I really don't know. Hopefully they will provide it.
