Darwinia Q&A with Lead Developer
10:42 AM | Conrad Quilty-Harper | Comment on this story

Austrian games website has posted a personal interview with Chris Delay, lead game developer of Introversion Software. Introversion is an indie game developing company located in the UK responsible for the innovative hacking game Uplink. Currently Introversion is working on the Mac version of Darwinia which should be available soon via download from Ambrosia Software, Darwinia is on a basic level an RTS, but combines fast-paced action and micromanagement all presented with easy controls and 80s retro graphics.

The interview gives an insight into the three-man team that makes up Introversion as well as the personal experiences of Chris within the UK games industry. Here's a short extract from the interview: Darwinia is surely one of the most unconventional games I have seen over the last few years, and that is absolutely one reason why I so much enjoy playing it. Why have you decided to walk such uncommon ways?

Chris: Yeah but it takes so long to make a game – over 2 years – we‘d be bored out of our minds if we decided to make a cute platform game or something. We have to take on projects that interest us on a creative level.

We also feel that the games industry is getting very stagnant because of that exact line of reasoning…big games companies don’t want to try unusual ideas for fear of failure, which is why most games look the same.
