    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.

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

    :lol:
    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.
