Darwinia+ confirmed for Xbox Live® Arcade

Darwinia+ confirmed for Xbox Live® Arcade

Admittedly it’s been on the rumour-mill for a while and quite possibly one of the worst-kept secrets in Introversion’s history, but recent events meant we thought it was time to end the speculation once and for all!

Three years on from Darwinia’s release on PC and we are really happy to confirm that we're working with Microsoft to bring both Darwinia, and our next title Multiwinia: Survival of the Flattest, onto the Xbox LIVE® Arcade service.

Due for release in early Autumn 2008, both games will be released under one package called Darwinia+.

When we first started Introversion back in 2001, the idea of developing our games for a console seemed an impossible challenge, and whilst we have built a fantastic community around our PC games, and will continue to support that, it has always been our dream to take the next step and produce a console title.

Multiwinia is the natural conclusion of what we started with Darwinia way back in 2002 and, with the launch of Live Arcade, Microsoft has presented us with a fantastic opportunity to get onto a rung of the console ladder. We're really looking forward to introducing Darwinia+ to a whole new audience. As announced, Multiwinia will also be released separately on the PC.

We’ll be announcing more about Darwinia+ and Multiwinia in the upcoming months, so keep your eyes and ears peeled for more announcements from our end…. :D

Does this mean no Multiwinia? Or will this name only apply to XBLA?

It's all good, as long as some of us have AccessAllAreas.

You have no idea what an NDA is until you've seen and signed one that lasts 5 years :P

Considering a 1 year one says "Shut up for 12 months and we'll give you cake or something", a 5 year one must be like "THOU SHALT NOT SPEAK, INFERIOR MORTAL SCUM, OR THOU SHALT BECOME MY NEXT BATTENBURG, THY INNARDS AND BONE AS THE SPONGE, AND THY FLESH THE SOYLENT GREEN MARZIPAN COVERING".

Not to burst any bubbles (but I might) - I don't think you'll see Darwinia+ on PSN.

As nice as a PS3 port would be, I don't see it as a reality any time soon. Anyway, PS3's store sucks compared to market place! (Posted from PS3)

Something like that. I'm sure it also had "We'll break your kneecaps if you break this NDA" in there somewhere...
