Title says it all. As of around two-and-a-half hours ago, Introversion’s strategy title, Multiwinia, went live.
The game’s available to buy from the Introversion store for £15, $24.90 or €19.95.
“Multiwinia is also available from Steam and will soon be released into retail worldwide,” says the release.
Full thing after the break.

Introversion sent word this afternoon that its site is now taking pre-orders for Multwinia: Survival of the Flattest.
“There will be a three-tiered pre-order menu; digital download, digital download plus boxed unit, or customers will be able to treat themselves and purchase our limited edition special pack presented in a beautiful custom-made Darwinian tin,” said a rep by email.
“These Darwinia logo-embossed tins will be exclusive to the Introversion Store and will contain DVDs of both Multiwinia and Darwinia, a fantastic coffee-table book featuring award-winning artwork from both games, the complete postcard set of Multiwinia cartoons and our very own Darwinian foam toys, loved by journalists and fans alike!”

Introversion’s put the official Multiwinia site live. There are links there for both a demo and video of the multiplayer RTS, but neither are in place yet, unfortunately. There are some pretty screens, though, and that’s all you can hope for. Go see.

According to this Shacknews piece, Multiwinia will release in September. The Introversion multiplayer RTS is also hitting Live this year in the form of Darwinia+, which includes the original game plus the online update. No firm date on that as yet, though.

Introversion has confirmed that it’s working on Channel 4 funded game called Chronometer.
The Darwinia developer was approached by the UK TV channel recently and asked if it had any ideas that could potentially be backed, a move which gave birth to the project.
“So around three months ago, despite being busier than we’ve ever been, Introversion Software began work on its sixth game,” said designer Chris Delay, speaking on the company’s blog.
“Channel 4 funded an exploratory pre-production phase of three months work, which we have now almost completed. We spent a long time looking for a fulltime writer, and worked through nearly 50 applicants until we hit on the right guy for the job – a writer named Chris Hastings, who’s sample work was a league ahead of the competition. Chris and myself have been working closely together in Cambridge during this three month period and that Chronometer document has now expanded into a whole project folder with scripts, pictures, maps, flow charts, production plans, budgets, the whole lot. We’ve spent a lot of time moving post-it notes around on a giant board, trying to piece together the structure of this new game.
“Ultimately we don’t know for certain if Chronometer will be going into full production – the conditions would have to be right for Introversion and for Channel 4, although they’ve been fantastic to work with during pre-production. We’re pretty much finished with this phase of Chronometer for now, and we’ll keep you updated about this interesting sixth game project as decisions are made.”
There are no firm details as to what the game actually is as yet, but there’s more from Chris through the link.

According to this IGN report, Darwinia developer Introversion is currently working on a game project with Channel 4.
Apparently the title’s called Chronometer and has been confirmed as real by Introversion. We’re just waiting for comment now.

Introversion sent over some new shots of upcoming RTS Multiwinia, and very nice it’s looking too. The game’s an update to the much-loved Darwinia, which saw little computer men fighting for survival against virus types.
We’ve just got a preview build of this, so we’ll knock up some impressions and new shots this week. No date as yet. After the link.

Nice, genyoowine exclusive here for the RPS massive, with Gillen getting a good go on Introversion’s Multiwinia. There are plenty of screens included, and a heap of detail on a bot-match on the Holy Tree map.
This pretty much sums it up: “I’m dominating the left of the battlefield, and there’s plenty of computer-guy-corpses to recycle.”
Take a look.

“I’d hesitate saying a month, but you’re more than welcome to say it’s going to be out in the summer of 2008,” a company rep told VG247. “We’ve got some announcements about Multiwinia as well, which we’re going to make about April-May time, when we get the website up and running.”
Multiwinia is a four-player update to indie classic Darwinia, in which digital tribes go head to head for supremacy of a computer’s guts, essentially. It takes place after Darwinia, in which the Darwinians fought off a computer virus. Since they successfully defended themselves, the Darwinians have grown in number and started fighting each other. Sounds fun.
Lots more on this soon.
