Ambrosia Software and Introversion Software are once again teaming up to bring Mac gamers a new title called Defcon. The Mac conversion of the game has reached its alpha development milestone, according to Ambrosia.
Inspired by the 1983 motion picture WarGames , Defcon is an online, competitive multiplayer strategy game that focuses on global thermonuclear war. You’re a general deep within a secure underground bunker, and you’re tasked with destroying the enemy’s civilian population while disabling their ability to retaliate.
Ambrosia has started a progress log to track the game’s development, and has also posted some preliminary screenshots. You can find out more about Defcon from its official Web site, aptly named Everybody-dies.com.
Introversion and Ambrosia have previously worked together on Macintosh conversions of Darwinia, a strategy game based in a virtual world, and Uplink, a game that makes you a hacker. Defcon is their third collaboration.
