'Defcon' Also Coming to NDS

DEFCON, inspired by the 1983 cult-classic Wargames, is an online, competitive, multiplayer strategy game based around the theme of global thermonuclear war.

DEFCON is an online, competitive, multiplayer strategy game simulating global thermonuclear war. The game, inspired by the 1983 cult-classic film, Wargames, superbly evokes the tension, paranoia and suspicion surrounding the Cold War era.

“With the DSi flying off the shelves recently, we believe that there will be particular interest in a finished DS product with such a great track record, especially as the RTS/Strategy sector is so poorly served on the platform,“ said Mark Morris, Director at Introversion.

Introversion has appointed veteran agents, Bad Management, to assist it in its discussions with, and evaluation of, potential publishing partners.

Said John Cook, Senior Partner at Bad Management, “In the current risk-averse environment, companies are placing a premium on finished products with a well-established brand and track record. DEFCON DS is a fantastic publishing opportunity, and we’re confident we will be able to find the right fit for Introversion.”

Specifically adapted for DS with full stylus control, a unique game-mechanic and all the chilling effects of the original Armageddon sim, DEFCON DS is expected to appear on the shelves worldwide in Q3 2009.
