PC Gamer UK awards Darwinia 90%

Postby Chris » Fri Feb 18, 2005 2:24 pm

The first magazine review of Darwinia is in, courtesy of Tim Stone at PC Gamer UK. And we are very pleased to say that our game has been awarded a stunning 90%, as well as their "MUST BUY" badge of honour.

In a glowing review spanning four pages, PC Gamer raves about the game in a way which makes us very happy indeed. Here are some of our favourite quotes:

"Darwinia is a game that spot-welds the frenetic laser fury of traditional arcade shooters to the fluid structure-focussed warmongering of classical real time strategy."

"[The campaign] is an object lesson in restraint, coherence, and pacing."

"The most artistically exciting PC game ever."

"Incredibly original, gobsmackingly gorgeous."

"Darwinia will remind you why you love gaming so much."

"Soulful fusion of strategy and arcade shooter."

Darwinia is also mentioned in their opening editorial by Mark Donald, and their games editorial by Ross Atherton. Tim Stone's regular comic "strafe left" is this month dedicated to a letter written by a distressed Darwinian war veteren hurt at the lack of respect given to his fallen comrades...how cool is that!

The Darwinia demo is included on the coverdisk, as is the game manual in pdf form, as well as the Uplink demo. We suggest you get down to your newsagent and pick up a copy immediately...it's available right now.

I'm going to town now, I'll see if I can buy a copy but as far as I know there's only one shop in an 8 mile area that sells PCG

Times like this bring warmth to the cockles of my heart. To have been part of this development, helping the underdogs create something so new and unique to the masses, it's just awesome.
People say "computer geeks" have no lives. Guess this proves them wrong :P
