DEFCON On Steam In September

Valve and Introversion today announced an agreement to deliver DEFCON, a new online strategy game from the creators of the award-winning Darwinia, via Steam, Valve’s pioneering broadband platform for games and digital content. In addition, Introversion's first game and cult hit Uplink is now available via Steam.

Introversion, the award-winning, maverick developer of the hit PC game, Darwinia, will be releasing its eagerly-awaited third title, DEFCON, in September 2006 via Steam and at retail outlets around the globe for $14.95. Uplink is now available as a stand-alone title via Steam for just $9.95 and is also included with Darwinia, the 2006 Independent Developer Festival winner, for a package price of $19.95.

"Steam has made Introversion a commercial success, and brought critical acclaim to Darwinia", said Thomas Arundel, commercial director of Introversion Software. "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"

"As evidenced by the success of Darwinia, Steam is an excellent outlet for independent developers, such as Introversion, who are breaking new ground with the industry’s pioneering titles," said Gabe Newell, co-founder and president of Valve. "With over 10 million registered users, the library of games offered via Steam continues to expand with games from all genres."

DEFCON is an online, competitive, multiplayer strategy game based around the theme of global thermonuclear war. 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.

I really hate valve software for buying all those great open mods and selling them for horrendous fees (DOD, Red Orchestra anyone?).

Don't forget Garry's mod, they will probably buy Black Mesa source as soon as the first beta comes (should I say if?) out. They will probably buy it then release it as a upgrade to Half Life: Source as that currently sucks.
