Multiwinia and Defcon
« on: March 28, 2009, 09:07:42 PM »
Hey all. I just downloaded the trials of Multiwinia and Defcon. Two games made by Ambrosia Software.

Links found here:

http://www.ambrosiasw.com/games/multiwinia/

http://www.ambrosiasw.com/games/defcon/

Both of these games are real time strategy games. I think Multiwinia is a pretty sweet game so far, and Defcon has a really cool concept but takes some getting used to. Does anyone here play these games and have any insights?

Hahah yea! Ambrosia is so underrated.

Escape Velocity Override was one of the best games I've ever played. I also highly recommend Escape Velocity Nova for anyone who likes a good RPG. EVO was amazing but can't be played on OS X unfortunately, but Nova is a relatively new game (2 years old maybe) and is OS X native.

Apeiron is the best Ambrosia game IMO.
That game has been around forever.

Deimos Rising was my favorite Ambrosia game of all time.

It was VERY difficult but it was so fun to play. If only I could find my CD of that game...

Barrack, Avara, Maelstrom, ahh the memories...... i would pay them to port it to Leopard :P

they do seem to have rather left games for a while for tools and such, but they make there games from time to time.
