A first look at Order of Magnitude, Introversion’s ambitious colony sim

In Introversion's upcoming hard sci-fi colony sim Order of Magnitude, Earth has been destroyed by an extinction level comet hit. It'll be your job to oversee humanity's attempts to rebuild as we fragile fleshsacks spread throughout a realistically simulated solar system, complete with accurate orbital models for every celestial body. There are tentative plans concerning intercultural conflicts and moral conundrums, where you'll have to confront…

State of the Art: Chris Delay talks Scanner Sombre

Scanner Sombre [official site] is Introversion's curious LIDAR-inspired exploration game. It caught my eye last year at Rezzed because it had such an unusual art style - the only thing close to it is A Light In Chorus and that does very different things with the specks of colour which make up its environments. In Scanner Sombre you use a scanning gun to reveal the…

Prison Architect’s Chris Delay On Introversion’s TWO New Prototypes

While at Rezzed the Prison Architect devs Introversion casually plonked not one but TWO new game prototypes onto the show floor – one a bomb defusal idea with echoes of the studio's erstwhile project, Subversion, and the other an exploratory mood piece where scanning a pitch black cave system gradually picks out shapes with a speckled spectrum. Scanner Sombre is the latter and the weird…

Introversion Unveil Prison Architect’s Alpha Launch

Prison Architect is coming along nicely, as I've reported previously. Now though, the Introversions - Chris Delay and Mark Morris - want players to help push the design process along, as well as some pre-order money to keep themselves in bread and water. With that in mind, there's now a tiered pre-order option open, and you can get involved for a price. We talked to…

Break Into Prison Architect Later This Year

Introversion’s Prison Architect is the mysterious tumour that ate away at Subversion. Wait, that’s a horrible thing to say! Let me get my Men In Black Mind Eraser thing and we’ll pretend I never said - *flash* [Editor's Note - at this point Craig accidentally flashed his own memories. He doesn't know who he is, so we've told him he's Oor Wullie]. Crivens! Thuy sais…

Introversion Explain Subversion’s Fate

Earlier this week I had a chance to talk to Introversion lead programmer, Chris Delay. He explained a bit about what was going on with the British indie, talking about how the suspended Subversion project had changed their outlook, and how they're returning to their original approach of being bedroom programmers.

See Subversion At World Of Love

What a strange headline that is. What it means is this: Introversion's forthcoming procedurally-generated espionage game, Subversion, was shown at London-based Indie convention World Of Love earlier this year. It was filmed, via the magic of wobblecam, and uploaded for the internet. That means you can watch Chris Delay play through one of the levels, and see polygonal Kieron Gillen and Eskil Steenberg rob a…

Introversion: “To Our Credit, We Survived”

I didn't notice my Eurogamer interview with Chris Delay at Introversion had been published, until the weekend. It is, strictly speaking, 360-related, in talking about their open-development process with Darwinia+ for Live Arcade. They're basically showing a load of internal documents and papers from interactions with Microsoft. To quote Chris: "They suggested a few guidelines and we went ahead and pretty quickly stepped way over…

Introversion On All Things

I'm pretty chuffed with this enormous Chris Delay interview over on Offworld. It's part of a series of wide-ranging chats I've been having with my favourite developers. Sample text: Rossignol: You're making programmer art an art style. You're vindicating that approach: artists don't have to be there to make games look good. CD: There's definitely a look and style to our videogames. I love sharp,…
