* GameMod: A very notable and impressive one was released October 1, 2016, called Uplink OS which completely overhauled the graphics of the game so it looks more like Windows set-up and less like a DOS screen. Even the developers were impressed. Though [[GameBreakingBug it does have quite a few bugs still being worked out.]]

* CopyProtection: Actually meant as a bit of nostalgia, as they posted the shiny grid that comes with the game as a free PDF on their website.

* CopyProtection: Actually meant A glossy black-on-black code sheet that asks you to enter the two character sequence at a certain intersection. When the game came out, it was indeed intended as copy-protection, as the game didn't have any kind of DRM and it was Introversion's first game, though now, with the rise of Steam and digital distribution, it has become more a bit of nostalgia, as they posted the shiny grid nostalgia. [[spoiler: The codes themselves are also hexadecimal characters that comes with allow you to access the game as a free PDF development bible hidden on their website.the original CD if you convert them.]]

* GoodBadBugs: Early versions of the game had dead or arrested people answer their phones like nothing was wrong. Also, phone calls would sometimes play in SlowMotion, which just sounded ridiculous.

* NoPlansNoPrototypeNoBackup: After you complete a mission to hack into a server and delete key files, a news story will note how the company has lost years of work. Apparently none of them have considered backing up their precious data on removable, offline media.

* CreatorCameo: Introversion Software is one of the companies that hires you from time to time, and they have a website in-game about possible ideas for a sequel. [[spoiler: Their IP has to be manually looked up first, as it is initially hidden from the list InterNIC has]]
