From what I can tell, at least for Uplink, the source code is written in C++.  Introversion previously offered the Uplink Developer CD.  What however is absent is the license it is being released under.  Be careful there, I am always hesitant accessing source code to a license that isn’t strongly defined.  Don’t want to end up on the wrong end of a nasty lawsuit because your game is similar to one of these titles and you peeked at the source.  I’m sorta surprised the license isn’t part of the release information.

I actually believe I own all of these games many times over as it is.  Until I hear terms of the code license, I’m staying away.



Thanks to @DarkCisum on Twitter, I have links to the licenses released that prior code releases used, it’s a fairly safe assumption the licensing remains the same.

Defcon License

Darwinia License

Uplink License


Wearing my IANL ( I am not a lawyer ) hat, I don’t see anything too scary, but also find the license a bit too vague for my personal comfort.
