More reviews, more extras, more stuff

Postby Chris » Mon Feb 28, 2005 6:29 pm

Lots of site updates today. Firstly we've had the first of the web reviews of Darwinia at TotalVideoGames.com - who have awarded Darwinia 9/10. Read the full review here. We've created a new Web Reviews page under Exposure for future reviews of this kind.

We've added some new stuff to the Extras pages - adverts that will (hopefully) be appearing in games magazines soon. We've also included some concept adverts that never made it beyond the brainstorming phase, some of which are quite crazy, so definately worth a look.

The old Support Us page has gone (although please do buy one of our over priced posters if you still feel like it), and we've added the Support pages in. Currently the only support we have is basically the same as that printed in the game manual, but we will update these pages as information flows in about problems people are having and the solutions we find for them.

Finally, we've added some hi-quality scans of the Darwinia articles that appeared in PC Gamer during January 2005. These include an interview with Chris, and our fantastic scaling of the Readers Most Wanted chart. You can find these new scans in the Exposure section under Print Previews.

Hurrah!

That's fantastic, especially when I just got the "your copy has been shipped" email.

Now, if only I could download it, a-la Steam, I'd be the happiest person in the world!

That's planned. The advert says 'download the game', even :P

Should be running in a couple of months from what I've been heard

Aieee!

Months?

MONTHS?

I want it now! It's sitting there in some postal depot, undoubtably being prepared for a quick game of parcel football, unappreciated by the people who have it, while I sit here _without it_.

This would never have happened if Kerry had won.

Don't think about The Game.

Love the indoor rendering of this one:
http://www.darwinia.co.uk/extras/advert ... d%20v1.jpg

Makes me wonder how the game would look in a 2d / 3d engine like that :D
However, it states "Darwinia.com" in the address, which still treats old Mr. Darwin and not the game ;)

Downright bizzare, but quirky. Bit like Darwinia itself.
