Hi everyone,

Introversion has announced that they're releasing the Darwinia and Multiwinia source code to anyone who will pay for it, much like what they did with Uplink.

This means Miah and I are going to start developing Darwinite, which will be to Darwinia what Onlink is to Uplink. And it also means we're recruiting. Let us know if you're interested!

I would like to add a smallish detail here.

You do not need to have code experience, nor do you need access to the Darwinia source code for this project. We can make use of level designers, sprite designers, script editors and sound composers. It's the usual scenario here; we can do all of this on our own if we must but we'd be able to do a lot more if we could focus more on the code.

So, if you're interested, let us know.

(I suppose that wasn't a very small detail...)

I'm always open for Mac testing.

And there's also pixel art, which I've (sort of) improved on. Like the transition from this:

To this cause I pledge 5 (five) lines of code of Miah or Tycho's choosing.

Choose wisely.

EDIT: Actually, I suggest you use that Quadtree implementation I wrote you, so that's your 5 used up, and then some.

Just out of interest, is this going to affect the development of Cerberus at all?

Darwinite will be a continuation of the Cerberus storyline, so in that sense they affect each other. Interfere, though? No.

At the rate it's going, Darwinite might end up a prequel.

Those hidden teasers in Onlink made me think that Darwinia would be implemented in Cerberus - all within one game. Oh well.

You're certainly free to give me samples. We'll need all sorts of things from clicking button noises to klaxons.

What sort of style are you going for? Are you changing the 'feel' of Darwinia at all? Do you need general things like laser sounds and destroyed enemies etc?

I was actually speaking about Cerberus. As for Darwinite, a lot of the sounds will end up reuseable and we don't have a list of sound needs for it as of yet.

With Cerberus, however, we do have a rough start. It's the same as what's already available for Onlink. I don't want to use any of those sounds however, mostly because I think a lot of them are too harsh. The sound made when you add a link to your bounce chain? I hear a metal hammer striking a metal brick. I've grown to hate it.

As for music, well. I'm not going to mention it here. If you have Skype, I can show you the general palette/tone I'm looking for though.

Multiple frequencies of sounds would be cool. So you don't get sound spammed, you just hear a slightly different sound.
