UK-based indie studio Introversion is currently developing a port of PC strategy title Defcon
for the Nintendo DS, though the project is currently without a publisher.
The news, which comes via Eurogamer
, reveals that Introversion originally had a publishing deal which would see the game distributed by Pinnacle Publishing - who have since gone out of business. With the project so close to completion, all Introversion apparently needs is for another backer to step in. Any takers?
was one of the earlier games Introversion developed and was a strategy game in which players controlled the flow of a full-scale nuclear war. The aim of the game was simply to survive with the least number of losses, with a strong focus on pre-emptive strikes. The game was heavily inspired by the film War Games
and you can read more about it in our full Defcon review
How exactly the DS version of the successful strategy game will differ from the original isn't clear, but Introversion has apparently promised to have full stylus controls and a new, unique game mechanic. What that is exactly is still shrouded in fog of war though.
