Last month, Introversion's PC real-time strategy game Darwinia won three categories at the Independent Games Festival Awards, including the Seumas McNally Grand Prize. Now the digitally distributed game will be made available to gamers who insist on getting a tangible copy of the game for their money, as Cinemaware Marquee today announced that is preparing a North American retail release of the game. Darwinia has been available over Valve Software's Steam service for $19.95 since late last year. The boxed version will cost $29.99 when it's released in June, but the package will include an exclusive poster and collectible figurine.

"Its even more weird to have bought this game to support the company, and now to see that they're offering a poster AND a figurine if I buy it agian" Well you did have the privilege of playing it for six months before the retail box release.
LOL I didn't even know it was available! I thought it hadn't come out yet. Oh well even thought it looks cool my pc is not even capable of playing pacman. When is it coming to consoles?

I'm not a big RTS fan but this game was pretty fun. Good to hear it's getting the respect it deserves.
Weird to have purchased the game, beaten it, forgotten almost entirely about it, and then get this news.
Right on. My friend who's been helping Develope this has been telling me about it. Hope it does well.
