    DEFCON is a game developed by the same people who made Darwinia and Uplink, Introversion software. It's their next game and is scheduled for release on the 29th via Steam.

    I've got my copy pre-ordered, the great thing about it is that it's only US$9.95 if you preorder (US$14.95 when it's released). It's been getting great reviews everywhere, IGN even gave it 8.8 (IGN DEFCON review).

    It's a stylised strategy game that takes place on a map of the world (kind of like Risk). You are in control of one of six superpowers. You can deploy your navel, air and ground units during different defcon stages which are timed. By the time the game reaches defcon one players are lobbing nuclear missles at eachother.

    Basically the player with the most citizens left in their country is the winner by the end of it. It sounds like an interesting game, and for that price I had to get it. You can play up to 6 people online, it's mainly just a multiplayer game but you can vs cpu players if you want.

    So anyone else ordering this game from Steam? Perhaps we can get some GBAtemp players together...

    I am so waiting for this game to come out. I always like the works from introversion. Uplink and Darwinia were their last works.
