> HACK EYES INTO TEXT

I really don't understand why there aren't more hacking games. Uplink was brilliant, but it was 350 years ago now. So why aren't we inundated with hacking simulators that will let us feel like super-cool hax0rz while we sit in our pants at the PC? Disrupt is offering such pant-sitting opportunities, as is demonstrated in the trailer below.

It's arguable I'm not really born to be a hacker. My attempts at learning any code extend to having to look up the HTML for linking to an email address every single time. So I love the power fantasy of Uplink, and I'd love to see more of the type. We first heard about Disrupt back in July last year, but it's been awfully quiet since. Until... now!

Apparently the game will allow you a good degree of freedom, letting you choose to frame dodgy politicians or rob from the rich and give to the poor. Or putting it in your own pocket. Which you won't have, because you'll be in your pants.

As you may well have anticipated, there's a Greenlight page for the project. No release date seems to be set yet, and hopefully some Greenlight attention will boost its profile.

Here's some pre-alpha footage from last year:
