Introversion Software recently announced Multiwinia for the PC, a new stand alone title which will bring multiplayer action to the digital world of Darwinia for the first time. Planned for a 2008 release, the game will combine elements of the award winning original with the addition of both competitive and cooperative multiplayer battles between massive Darwinian armies. In addition to the traditional single player mode, Multiwinia will offer a series of separate game modes, each with a number of unique levels and interesting challenges.
“We’ve always known that Darwinia would naturally evolve into an incredible multiplayer game and right from day one I’d had visions of massive Darwinian armies converging for the ultimate Darwinian death-fest”, Chris Delay, creative director of Introversion Software said enthusiastically about the new project. “Multiwinia will be a great game, not only for those who knew and loved Darwinia, but also for complete newcomers.” As well as multiplayer mayhem Multiwinia will feature a few graphical updates, although the distinctive fractal art style will remain. There is no word yet on the possibility of a Mac version but Introversion's relationship with Ambrosia Software on Darwinia and other titles offers hope to eager Mac gamers.
John Knottenbelt, takes on the role of lead designer of Multiwinia, in a tactical manoeuvre that will allow Chris Delay, creative director at Introversion to begin work on other new projects. John revealed some of the exciting new changes to the multiplayer experience: “We’ve created a new formation mode which will let you organise your Darwinians into ranks to create massive armies. In formation they’ll have greater firepower in the direction they’re facing, but virtually none from either sides or behind. It’s going to get pretty messy, requiring a whole new set of tactical skills from the gamer.”
