Progress update

Postby Chris » Tue Feb 15, 2005 3:44 pm

For those who don't know, we shall start with the big news...Darwinia has now GONE GOLD! Even as we speak thousands of shiny cds are being pressed at a factory and packaged into disturbingly green boxes. Good news we think you'll agree.

We've uploaded six new screenshots that we think show the actual action of the game a bit better than our previous shots, which were very static. Do you have a good screenshot of Darwinia lying around? One with lots of action, explosions, death and destruction? Please post them for us to see, as we've discovered it can be very hard to capture good action because it happens so fast in game.

PC Gamer UK will be running a review of Darwinia (the first, we think) in the next issue, which will be on sale this Friday 18th February. Cross you fingers, hope for the best, wish us look, etc. They will also be running our demo (v1.0) on the coverdisk, as well as including the game manual in pdf format.

We are so close now - Darwinia will be released in less than 3 weeks!

I can't wait to see what they have to say... as soon as someone gets a scan of it up.

Hmmm... Demo V. 1.0 on the cover? Guess it's a time and organisation / CD pressing thing, eh?
If nothing else, get them to inform the reader that the 1.1 is out :D

That's three days from now. :D

After PC Gamer releases their new issue, we'll be flooded by people
saying:

"I got pnwed by a bunch of Virii! How the **** did that happen??"
and/or
"Can anyone get me a CD key that you're not using? I 'lost' mine."
and/or
"Insert random, pointless, useless post here"

At least that happened with one of the minor game forums here in the US

If it includes the manual it shouldn't be that big of a deal....
