Loved this game but I think it would be more suited to the Wii, just because of the Wii remote. Can't wait to see how this pans out though. :D

Stick to Steam lads. Don't allow MS to wield the illusion that they support indie devs and creative freedom - they really don't deserve it. F**king control freaks that rape you on royalties. :evil:

I couldn't get into this on the PC when I tried it, I liked the premise and graphic style, there was just something lacking in the game play department.

This is great news!!

Plus with the new size limit I really hope that Introvision release DEFCON on XBLA next, that's an awesome game too!

All the console makers rape you on royalties, it's how they make most of their profit, steam also takes about 50%

Great news though I haven't delved into Darwinia, if the controls are nice on the 360 i may buy it.

Fantastic game. Got better and better the more I played it. So atmospheric too. Too short though. I wanted more.

Any 360 owners really need to get this.

I remember playing this game a while back. Really fun, RTS-like. Graphics are also great, very retro-ish and the environemt was cool as hell too. I also like the interesting storyline behind. Would of made a cool cyber-punk sci-fi novel.

Darwinina is incredible on PC, I played it for 6 hours straight...

It gets really good towards the end where you're battling the enemy with hundreds of Darwinians, guns turrets, squads and officers; there's a cool story to it too.

Can't wait for Multiwinia, may even top Company of Heroes for sheer RTS fun! :D
I love the taste of Pikmin in the morning.
