Thanks Introversion for a wonderful game

Postby TheGreenKnight » Fri Mar 17, 2006 7:43 pm

I finally got around to buying this; I bought a newish copy from eBay.

I have to say it is amazing. The graphics, the fact that I am playing it on a P3 866 running Linux, the little Darwinians who you start to feel protective towards, Dr S the Sir Clive Sinclair lookalike, the start-up intros, the music - awesome.

There's a lot more to this game than first meets the eye. Darwinians somersaulting, the box-kites which I have yet to understand. These things are giving the game depth and the game is drawing me in in a way I haven't experienced for a long time.

I love Darwinia :)

That's pretty much the same reason why I liked Darwinia, but I still never got into it as much as Uplink.

They're part of the Darwinian funeral ritual. They guide souls to the central repository (darwinian heaven)

Hrm... that brings up an interesting question in my mind. Is the Soul Repository heaven? or is it more like Purgatory or Limbo? It is a place where their souls are dissasembled, and put back together again -- sounds like some of the higher circles of Hell, to me. However, there is the promise of rebirth and renewal -- the possibility of redemtion (i.e. Purgatory). In some senses, Western Christian thought doesn't even really apply, as the idea of reincarnation is not a part of that philosophy. What happens to a Buddhist when they die? or a Hindu?
