Word reaches us (via tiny word-machines) that the demo version of the latest version of Hacker Evolution - Brian Spencer's Hacker Evolution: Untold - has a demo out. Don't worry about the name. It's not an indie-dev ego-outburst, but the name of the lead character. I've played a couple of the previous versions, and it remains the serious competitor to Introversion's classic Uplink. From my brief look at the demo, it maintains its main separating point - that is, you actually use a text interface to type DOS-line orders to go about your hacks. Man, it's giving me Wargames flashbacks. There's little information on the site proper, but its plot seems to be about the technological singularity aka The Rapture For Geeks. You can get the demo here, and if it takes your fancy, pre-order in time for its December 8th release. Hurrah for games!
