That 6" Darwinian is priceless amongst Lara Croft, The Prince and the Brotherhood Of Steel member. Would really make an impression on me, far more than a big one :)

It's brilliant to see you in this position and hear you being positive about the process - I wasn't sure if you were going to conclude that the whole ordeal wasn't worth it given how close you came to destruction - well done for persevering and making the hard decisions nad doing the hard work to survive.

Really loved the Giant Bomb quick look you did. I think you came across really well with your enthusiasm for the game and a number of the comments on that video complemented your general humility. It was heartening to see many also say that they'd never heard of Darwinia but are now keen to play it. The Multiwinia part seemed to go down well as well :). I hope this translates into the sales you guys need.

Really looking forward to hearing more about Subversion very soon. It's great to hear you've already been working on it for many months - that's what I wanted to hear. I too would love to see what Chronometer actually is, if that project gets the chance to be revived at some point in the future.

Got the release day eve blues, Live points are burning a hole in my pocket! Fortunately Modern Warfare 2 and Rock Band will keep me amused for one more day, but tomorrow it's all about Assault on Multiwinia on Live.

See you at the beach 8)

Jus picked up Bioshock 2 (does that make me a traitor?), and will be downloading Darwinia+ when I get home. Hopefully I won't be the only one doing that.

Unfortunately, according to that video, there is no assault mode in it :shock:

I think.

My Xbox died on Sunday (not a RROD or E74 this time), but there was no way I was missing the launch of my favourite game, so I went quite mad and bought a brand new one while the old one is being repaired.

Congratuations, IV, see you at BAFTA.

Oh bollocks, I hadn't noticed. Guess they figured it was too unbalanced, but that was my favourite mode :cry:

Downloaded this morning and squeezed the intro in before work. The control scheme is brilliant, feels like you're in complete control. Great to see you guys come out on the other side of this struggle with a product clearly built with care. Now the hard part, waiting until the end of the day to play some more.

I already purchased D+ and I am trying to get a few of my friends to as well. Been a long time fan of Introversion ever since I first played Uplink. Here's hoping to success to this project and the next, and the next, and the next, etc. :D

A very hearty CONGRATS to you all!

As one who has lurk/stalked IV since discovering you via Ambrosia's Uplink Mac port, I'm extremely happy to see you guys getting to a safe place again ;)

I can't even put into words how excited I am to see Subversion ;) It's on my "most anticipated" list next to StarCraft II and Super Mario Galaxy 2. You, the indy IV Software, are in my top three with Blizzard and Nintendo. Bravo to you.

Thanks for doing what you do.

You don't get eaten by sharks unless you go on vacation (or join the Navy).

I say press on with the coding!
