If ever proof was needed of how important Valve's Steam platform has become to many PC developers, look no further than the tale of Introversion, the developers of Defcon and Darwinia, whose company was saved by a Steam sale.


For those of you who don't know, Multiwinia is the fourth game developed by Introversion Software. I was a huge fan of Defcon and Darwinia. Multiwinia looks like it's shaping up very nicely. In this video we take a look at the "King of the Hill" mode where players try to control zones.


Over at Introversion Software's blog, the developer of Defcon and Darwinia has revealed it's at work on its sixth game, Chronometer, with funding from the UK's Channel 4.

It's unclear what the fate of the game, currently in pre-production, will be; said Introversion's Chris Delay:

Ultimately we don't know for certain if Chronometer will be going into full production - the conditions would have to be right for Introversion and for Channel 4, although they've been fantastic to work with during pre-production. We're pretty much finished with this phase of Chronometer for now, and we'll keep you updated about this interesting sixth game project as decisions are made.

The team is currently preparing for the launch of Multiwinia (shown), a multiplayer version of strategy title Darwinia, for PC.



Darwinia on the 360 is a "possible future release" no more. Developers Introversion have, after the ESRB leak the other day, come out and officially announced the project, which is to be called Darwinia+. You'll get two games for the price of one: Darwinia, and the multiplayer Multiwinia: Survival of the Flattest will be bundled together, and while at the moment that's all Introversion are saying, quite frankly at the moment that's all we need to be hearing. Darwinia+ confirmed for Xbox Live® Arcade


The latest batch of ESRB ratings shows that Introversion Software's "digital dreamscape" Darwinia is planned for an Xbox 360 release, most likely via Xbox Live Arcade. The virtual themepark of Darwinia is a bit hard to nail down to one genre, as it features real-time strategy gameplay with action and puzzle elements all nestled within an abstract design. For anyone interested in this possible future release, demos are available online via the official site or Valve's Steam service. It's nothing if not interesting.
