Indie darling readying Darwinia+ for August release

Celebrated indie developer Introversion has announced that it is to release an enhanced version of Darwinia on Xbox Live Arcade.

Titled Darwinia+, the game will feature the original title plus Multiwinia, the company's next planned release. Darwinia+ is currently set for a August 2008 release, and the PC version of Multiwinia will be made available simultaneously.

"When we first started Introversion back in 2001, the idea of developing our games for a console seemed an impossible challenge, and whilst we have built a fantastic community around our PC games, and will continue to support that, it has always been our dream to take the next step and produce a console title, ” said Chris Delay, Introversion's creative director.

“Multiwinia is the natural conclusion of what we started with Darwinia way back in 2002 and with the launch of Live Arcade, Microsoft has presented us with a fantastic opportunity to get onto a rung of the console ladder. We're really looking forward to introducing Darwinia+ to a whole new audience.”
