Introversion in 50 greatest developers

Postby vic » Thu Jan 15, 2009 5:48 pm

We were greeted with a pleasant surprise today in the form of our PC Gamer subscription which among other things has listed Introversion as one of the 50 greatest developers, who in their words "can truly claim to have made a difference". Introversion was listed under their "Independence Awards" section.

Later they sum up Introversion thus "Where some companies obsess over scale and dramatic spectacle, Introversion's focus on pure game mechanics sends you right back to the good old days, and further cements Britain as the place where great stuff can happen".

We're all chuffed to pieces this end - making a difference to the indie game scene was a guiding mantra for Introversion in the early days. A return to creative, unique ideas and an emphasis on gameplay over visual one-upmanship has informed everything we do right from Day 1, and its great to be recognised for our contribution to this amazing industry.

Thank you PC Gamer!

Congrats! A well-deserved award! :D

Amusingly, the caption for the Multiwinia screenshot says it's Darwinia.

Haha you're right Jelco and with the likes of Darwinia+ coming out I think the its going to get increasingly difficult to tell the difference between the two!

With the products you guys make, I would honestly be more surprised if you weren't in that list. Keep up the good work.

Not much around here lately. Congratulations and hope the best for your future. If you keep up with your hard and good work and with a little bit of luck (always needed) you can get even better.
