INTROVERSION TEAMS WITH AMBX TO LAUNCH WORLD’S FIRST OFFICIAL DEFCON TOURNAMENT

May 23, 2007: London

Indie-game studio, Introversion Software, announced today it has teamed with the makers of the amBX PC gaming peripherals, Philips Electronics, to launch an exciting, three-month DEFCON league and tournament throughout the UK. The event will be hosted by IGUK, the UK’s biggest provider of Lan gaming centres, with the Grand Final being played out in the world’s largest dedicated gaming centre, Omega Sektor, due to be opened in Birmingham in June.

Since DEFCON’s release online last year, there have been many calls to host an official tournament and according to Chris Delay, creative director of Introversion, it’s easy to see why. “DEFCON’S an ideal game for a Lan tournament as there’s a lot of psychological gameplay going on between you and the other opponents. Playing DEFCON often brings out the worst in people as you’re essentially encouraged to betray your friends, and the better you get at doing that, the better you tend to perform in-game. It’ll be fascinating to watch how these dynamics play out when everyone’s in the same room together.”

Throughout the 12-week IGUK league, weekly prizes will be handed out to participants who have been randomly selected via a Frag Lotto. “This competition is as much about having fun and participating, as it is about racking up your DEFCON kill-count,” explained Dominic Mulroy of Omega Sektor. “The Frag Lotto ensures that all gamers are encouraged and awarded for taking part, not just the top scorers.”

From the IGUK league, 30 of the top-scoring gamers will then be selected to attend the Grand Final where they will compete for a place in the final six-player match. With generous prize donations from Philips Peripherals & Accessories, Logitech and Introversion, finalists will be competing to win over £10k of the latest software and hardware, including amBX PC Gaming Peripherals.

The Grand Final will also be amBX-enabled, promising to make it one of the most exciting and visually immersive game spectacles of the year. The all-new ‘ambient experiences’ technology will extend the gaming world out of the screen and into the real world using light, colour, sound and even air flow through amBX-enabled peripherals, including LED lighting, fans and rumblers.

Arming DEFCON with amBX will allow armchair generals to actually witness the blinding light, as their intercontinental ballistic missiles land; feel the ground rumble with the impact, as fallout rains down around them; and quite literally blow their enemy’s helmets off, through the force of the explosion entering the room via the desk fans.

For those unable to attend the Grand Final, former professional gamer Sujoy Roy will be on hand to provide online commentary and Live Streaming of the tournament over the internet, so spectators can watch and listen to the event from home.

INTROVERSION ANNOUNCES RELEASE OF DEFCON 1.4

April 19, 2007: London

Indie-developer Introversion Software today announced the release of version 1.4 of their hit-title DEFCON, an online multiplayer strategy game, based around the theme of thermonuclear war. Significantly, the new patch provides cross-platform interoperability, enabling Windows users to wage nuclear Armageddon against fellow Mac players. Linux users will also soon be able to join in the fun, with the release of the Linux version due around the end of April.

Following on from the successes of Uplink and Darwinia, Introversion has teamed up with Mac publisher Ambrosia Software, to bring DEFCON to the Mac. “We really strive to make our games accessible to as many people as possible, so this version was an important priority for us, and we’re looking forward to welcoming some newcomers to DEFCON”, confirmed Chris Delay, creative director at Introversion. DEFCON Mac will be available to buy online from Ambrosia Software's website http://www.AmbrosiaSW.com at a price of $25.00.

The new version will also include amBX support for PC players. This great new technology from Philips allows the gamer to use dedicated amBX hardware to control the light, colour, sound and even air flow of the surroundings. Mark Morris, Managing Director at Introversion said, “DEFCON’s already an extremely atmospheric game, but when I saw what the amBX team had done with it I was blown away. You can’t really describe amBX in words – you have to play with it – but this enhancement to DEFCON really increases the feeling that you are hidden deep underground in a nuclear bunker. If you think DEFCON was immersive before, just wait until you play it in a darkened room with the amBX kit plugged in”.

DEFCON 1.4 will be available to all existing DEFCON players from /defcon/downloads/patch.html. Steam users will be automatically updated to the latest version.

***Look out for DEFCON 1.4 in a special-edition DEFCON Collectors Pack available in all good UK retailers from 8th June.***

‘LAST OF THE BEDROOM PROGRAMMERS’ ANNOUNCE MULTIWINIA ON PC

February 22, 2007: London

The self-proclaimed ‘last of the bedroom programmers’, Introversion Software, confirmed rumours today that they are working on a multiplayer version of their hit title Darwinia for the PC. Multiwinia will combine elements of the award-winning Darwinia, with the addition of multiplayer support which will enable both co-operative and competitive battles between massive Darwinian armies. As well as the traditional single player mode, Multiwinia will offer a series of separate game modes, each with a number of unique levels offering a variety of new 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.”

John Knottenbelt, takes on the role of lead designer of Multiwinia, in a tactical manoeuvre that will allow Chris Delay, technical 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.”

Whilst fans of Darwinia will be pleased to note that the beautiful, fractal vista remains, the development team will also work on graphical upgrades that will ensure an even more visually incredible multiplayer experience. Multiwinia looks set to uphold, once again, Introversion’s mantra that great gameplay is not dependent on photorealistic graphics or a one-hundred strong team of artists, but a passionate commitment to original concepts and innovative design.

About Introversion Software:
Heralded as 'the last of the bedroom programmers', Introversion Software is a UK based independent games developer and publisher founded in 2001 by three university students. Starting out with a just £600, no advertising budget, and relying solely on the power of word-of-mouth, Introversion Software went on to produce the highly acclaimed, genre-defining, cult hacking sim, Uplink. Three years later, Introversion released Darwinia – a highly innovative retro action game combining an innovative mix of RTS Gameplay and Arcade Action with spectacular graphics and iconic references to the halcyon days of gaming. Like Uplink it proved a massive hit with the press, and in March 2006 Darwinia was awarded three awards at the Independent Games Festival. DEFCON was launched in September 2006, scoring an impressive review average of 85%+. For more information on all of Introversion's projects please visit www.introversion.co.uk

About Darwinia:
Darwinia is the second successful PC title from Introversion, combining fast-paced action with strategic battle planning, Darwinia features a novel and intuitive control mechanism and a graphical style ripped from 80's retro classics. The world of Darwinia is a virtual themepark, running entirely inside a computer network and populated by a sentient evolving life form called the Darwinians. Unfortunately Darwinia has been overrun by a computer virus which has multiplied out of control. Your task is to destroy the Viral Infection and save the Darwinians from extinction.
After its successful launch on Steam in November 2005, Darwinia was awarded three prizes during the 2006 Independent Games Festival for Innovation in Visual Art, Technical Excellence and the Seumas McNally Grand Prize.

INTROVERSION RELEASES MOD PATCH FOR DEFCON

December 13, 2006: London

Introversion Software Ltd. is happy to announce the release of a mod patch for their latest PC title, DEFCON. The patch will make it easy for gamers to play on some of the fantastic new maps and mod creations that have appeared on the Introversion community forum since DEFCON’s release in September 2006.

The new mods completely change the look and feel of DEFCON, opening up the possibilities for unique gameplay scenarios and bringing with them a whole new level of thermonuclear fun.

‘The real benefit of the mod patch is the mods themselves’, said Chris Delay, lead developer at Introversion, ‘Our fans had already produced a number of great mods for DEFCON before we even supported mods properly! We were amazed at how quickly new maps and unit graphics were being made, so it seemed absolutely essential to incorporate proper support for mod loading in-game.’

The popular IV modding forum (http://forums.introversion.co.uk/defcon/index.php) now hosts a map editor and supporting tools made by DEFCON fans, which allows the gamer to make their own, entirely new maps. Some of the most imaginative and inspired mod developments which gamers will now have the chance to play on can be found below. Please visit http://defcon.s4l.dk/?modlist for a complete mod list.

Up till now the Australians have evaded the thermonuclear debate; not anymore thanks to this new map!

INTROVERSION ANNOUNCES AMBX VERSION OF DEFCON

November 26, 2006: London

Introversion Software Ltd. announced today that it was teaming up with Philips to produce an amBX version of DEFCON. In time, the company also hopes to amBX enable their two previous critically acclaimed titles: Darwinia and Uplink.

Created by Philips, amBX is the latest in ambient intelligence technology, designed to bring the game world into the immediate present of the gamer’s living room. Using a scripting language, software engine and architecture, amBX will be able to deliver a full ‘sensory surround experience’ by creating hardware that can control the light, colour, sound and even air flow of your surroundings. Developers will work with a range of amBX PC Gaming Peripherals products including LED colour-controlled lighting, rumble peripherals and desktop fans, which can be strategically placed around the player’s room.

‘In all honesty we were initially a bit skeptical about amBX – a lot of peripherals have been released on the PC that have added very little to the experience’ remarked Mark Morris, Managing Director of Introversion, ‘but we recently visited the AmBX team in person and sat in their demo room, and the stuff they showed us just blew us away. The potential for this technology is enormous; we have only begun to scratch the surface, and there is undoubtedly a lot of exciting further experimentation we can do to maximize the gaming experience.’

DEFCON is the latest offering from indie-developers, Introversion, which enjoyed a successful launch in September 2006. DEFCON is an online multiplayer strategy game simulating global thermonuclear war. The game, inspired by the 1983 cult-classic film Wargames, superbly evokes the tension, paranoia and suspicion surrounding the Cold War era.

‘amBX and DEFCON are ideally suited to each other’, commented Chris Delay, Lead Developer at Introversion, ‘With our third game DEFCON we spent a huge amount of time trying to create the atmosphere of being buried deep within an underground bunker, slowly ending the world in the last war that will ever be fought. amBX is ideally suited to enhancing that atmosphere, taking it out of the confines of what’s right in front of you on-screen, and expanding it into your whole room.’

Combining DEFCON with amBX brings the whole messy scenario of nuclear war direct to the player’s bedroom. Flashes of blinding white light and gentle rumbles indicate when your missiles have hit home. Whilst a spine-chilling rush of air announces the raining down of fallout on millions of innocents. Meanwhile the dread of realisation approaches as the lights fade, the music slows, and your population withers. DEFCON amBX is a harrowing experience that will ensure you’re never so blasé about thermonuclear global war again.

INTROVERSION SOFTWARE ANNOUNCES DEFCON SEPTEMBER RELEASE

July 17, 2006: London

Introversion, the award-winning* maverick developer of the hit PC game - Darwinia - will be releasing its eagerly-awaited third title DEFCON in September 2006.

DEFCON is an online, competitive, multiplayer strategy game based around the theme of global thermonuclear war. The game, inspired by the 1983 cult-classic Wargames, superbly evokes the tension, paranoia and suspicion surrounding the Cold War era. The player assumes the role of a General hidden deep within an underground bunker, his mission being to successfully exterminate the enemy's civilian population whilst simultaneously disabling the enemy's ability to retaliate. Desperate attempts must be made to form fast, tactical alliances - alliances that may at any moment break-down to become treacherous and very deadly betrayals.

"DEFCON is proof once again that the creation of exciting, unique games does not rely on years and years of development, nor a 100 strong dev team. With the release of DEFCON, Introversion continues to demonstrate that indie developers are at the forefront of exciting, innovative gaming experiences," says Tom Arundel of Introversion Software.
