It’s hard to believe that, after being announced in 2006, we’re just now getting our first look at Subversion, the tactical action game from developer Introversion, which just released Darwinia+ on XBLA last week. The screens, recently unveiled on the Introversion forums (with some of the first gameplay details) look … well, they don’t look [...]

Last night at BAFTA in London the handsome men of Introversion sat on stage to chat about their more recent launch, that of Darwinia+ on XBLA. It’s Darwinia and Multiwinia combined for console-dude fun-times. What was a little more interesting, however, was that they did a demo of their next game, Subversion. Chris admits cheerfully [...]

We don’t usually post release info (not that we don’t want to – it is just time constraints), but Mark has been such a big help to indievision (and the indie community in general) that we’d like to say – Please [...]

Introversion has made a strong plea for your support, citing a“minimum sales figure” that “has to be achieved” in order for the independent studio to carry on. A better reason to buy Darwinia+ — which features both Darwinia and Multiwinia in all its plusitude — is simply that it’s pretty fantastic.
Still not convinced? Check out the trailer above and those screens below. You’re welcome.
Speaking to CVG, Darwinia+ developer Introversion spoke to the differences between Xbox Live Arcade and PSN, as well as the realities of game development.

If you happen to be in the area of ‘Manchester, England’ anytime from now until September, you’d do well to stop by the Urbis Centre to check out their Videogame Nation Exhibition which is an exhibit mostly surrounding the British games industry. Interestingly, as spied by Negative Gamer, there’s actually a small section dedicated to indie smash-hit Darwinia. The exhibit as a whole seems to cover everything from the DSi right down to the early days of ‘Jet Set Willy’ and the old bedroom programmers like The Oliver Twins. It’s interesting to see such a thing created surrounding video games, and for there to be an indie presence is rather heartwarming. Be sure to check it out if you have the chance, as it sounds like a worthwhile trip, but if that’s impossible then check the Negative Gamer link for a bunch of photos from the event (Such as the one heading this post).
