PC Game Developer Leaps To Consoles

Introversion, a company responsible for the likes of Darwinia, DEFCOM, and Uplink, has stuck with the PC over the years. But now, it appears they're going multiplatform, along with many other developers.

In a recent Next Generation interview with Introversion co-founder Mark Morris, we find they're planning to bring several of their games to home consoles via digital distribution. Morris stated they had forged a relationship with console makers that has "allowed them to retain intellectual freedom in their design." Basically, this means Sony, Microsoft, and Nintendo wouldn't force Introversion to alter their titles in any way; they'd simply perform the distribution.

..."the console makers are just offering massive distribution of the games and [they'll] give us a return back on that," said Morris. "That works for us."

He didn't go into specifics regarding which system(s) might be seeing games like Darwinia, but it's believed their first target may be the Xbox 360 and its popular Live program. After all, there is more similarity between Windows and the 360's architecture, but then again, digital distribution is possible on all consoles. The PS3's Store is perfectly capable of delivering the goods, for example. Either way, Morris says they plan to deliver the games within the next twelve months.
