By Introversion Studios
I dont know how many of you have heard of Introversion studios, but they are a UK based indy games developer. The games you may have heard of are Uplink and Darwinia, a hacking simulation and a RTS game respectively, if any of you use steam then I am sure that you have seen that they have recently been released.
On Friday the 29th of September 2006 they are releasing a new game, called DEFCON (DEFensive CONdition). This game is a multiplayer RTS game, based wholey upon unit placement and strategy as oposed to the vanilla resource based strategy game.
DEFCON is an extremely entertaining real time strategy game that is easy to learn and play, but contains enough strategic depth to keep most everybody interested. The game features a low number of units and wipes away a lot of the tedious micromanagement of other games (as units will automatically defend against enemy threats), making DEFCON much less daunting than a majority of strategy games. The game lets you concentrate on the big picture: building bases, positioning units, forming a plan, and selecting juicy targets. DEFCON can be adjusted to fit any requested pace, from quick matches to drawn out slugfests. Plus, the mood of the game is brilliant; there is a reason DEFCON includes a rolling demo, as the game is just plain fun to watch. Oh, and it’s under $20. DEFCON is ultimate pick-up-and-play multiplayer strategy game and I don’t know why you wasted your time reading this review instead of playing. Now go kill some innocent civilians!
