Oh god! The stretch! The stretch!

Please link or thumbnail the first image. It causes horrible stretch on my sub-par res (1024x768).

Edit: Or not, since we're on a new page.

Anyway, this only reminds me of a want (in Multiwinia) of a Server Browser based on the outer space renderings. How cool (and difficult) would it be finding servers in that thing.

I'm sure the rocket in the demo will have something to do with it, as well. You know, because it's cool.

Omg, they have to have that as an option for the world menu!

In fact... maybe an MMO darwinia with all those nods marked green or red for allied or enemy darwinians; each level procedurally generated... anyway.

RapidZombie just gave me another idea. How about the "current" Darwinia is the single player campaign (if there's no one online that you want to play with) and the star fields are the different servers?

The Darwinians have left in a spaceship and populated many different servers away from Darwinia.

What they found there was... Other groups of digital lifeforms!

I hope you can choose you team to either be Darwinian or Virus. And your teams colour can be red, yellow, green or blue, depending on which team you are (green viruses, red Darwinians etc).

More likely, all teams will be darwinians.

Actually, how many virus did noticed to act intelligently while playing the Darwinia campaign? All the intelligent tactics were done by red DGs. At most they kept some of the other virus around.

And personally, I really hope all teams will be darwinians.

Holy feck! Online Darwinia?! Amazing!

If this is pulled off well, I will give IV the official Badge of Win.

As soon as I make one. >>;;

And so it has at last come to pass:

The Return to Darwinia.

Now here's a question; will they have those uber floating tank-battleships they did in the one demo video abound? One blast from that thing can pretty much end the day for an opponent's army...

Do you mean... uh... armours? Probably... let us ponder that...

They were even bigger than armors in the standard game, had huge guns, hovered, and could fire while moving.

In the aforementioned Multiwinia concept movie between four players, the final minute or so came down to a battle between two of these. I'd assume they'd have a crew of like 8-10 Darwinians though...

Heh... how long will it be before a "Multiwinia speculations" thread appears? (If it hasn't already...)

Hmm. Haven't seen it. Please pardon my former sarcasm. :oops:
Where is the video, anyway? I can't find it.

Are you talking about that uh, video from one of the original demo betas from really early pre-release where a few community members played around and managed to get basic multiplayer working? Cause that's several years old...
