* 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.]]

* {{AFGNCAAP}}: You have no photo in your school records, Social Security, or bank account. During the secret mission to [[spoiler:steal the agent roster from the Uplink Internal Services machine, there's always one of the ten files missing - the one containing your own record.]]

''{{Uplink}}'' is a game that could best be described as a HollywoodHacking [[SimulationGame simulation]]. The whole premise is that you, an unnamed agent of the Uplink Corporation (an underground hacker-for-hire service), have just joined up in the ranks. Using your PC, you move up the ranks of Uplink agents by hacking different companies' computers and servers.

** The Protovision machine's depiction of TheBigBoard is like a foreshadowing of the their following game ''{{DEFCON}}''.

* PlayfulHacker: ''You'', [[WideOpenSandbox if you so choose, anyway]]. Gain access to someone's academic record and give them a qualification as a Registered Sex Worker! Change someone's government records from reading 'Single' to 'Married' (or vice versa)! Plant a Bestiality charge on some poor random bastard's criminal record for the lulz! Give them a qualification in Mathsology, Archeomatics or [[StephenColbert Truthiness]]! Given that this is a British game, the most appropriate crime to pin on people is probably [[spoiler: buggery]].

* 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]]
