I always had great respect for Introvision. I am a proud owner of Uplink, Darwinia and Defcon, and I can only encourage game developers to make games like this. Great gameplay, Linux compatible (native), good price,...

But this reminds me, I should go looking for more Game Bibles in Uplink ;)

I love the idea of smiley-faced Darwinians :D

the nice thing is that they have the prices correctly converted between currencies, except for € but the diference is not that big.... and 30€ for their game collection is sweet..... :D

I actually have a postcard from the DEFCON box up in my bathroom right above the toilet. It says "If The Bomb Drops.."

Everytime I drop a decent bomb of my own, I look at it and smile...

Great and interesting read. I'd recommend Darwinia to any gamer who has become jaded or burnt out by the industry. It is 100% pure undiluted "essence" of the joy of gaming.

All the Introversion games are fantastic, great gifts for anyone who enjoys video games.

Defcon rocks as a game, so does Darwinia but I'm too cheap to buy two games. Keep up the great work.

It's £30 for ALL their games together. That's not expensive by anyones standards.

What're they wearing in that photo?

I see air force, navy, army, and - something.

"...one journalist in the UK actually disconnected from the Internet whilst playing Uplink because he really believed he was doing something illegal..."


I bought Uplink in '02 and still love breaking it out every now and then.
Last year, at a LAN I was administrating I had one of the young guys come up to me because someone was "hacking" on the other side of the room. Being a LAN aimed at Gaming rather than file sharing or anything else I investigated... Yeah, he was playing uplink.
I think the 1st guy got a little worried when I sat down and started asking how it was going and the like before I explained it was a game and everything was cool.
