Darwinia Price Drop

April 5th, 2005 by Crusader

A reader pointed out that Introversion has dropped the price of Darwinia (demo) for European and US residents; the price is now £19.99 in the United Kingdom (+ £1.50 shipping/handling), 29.99 euros in the rest of Europe (+ 2 euros shipping/handling), and $29.99 (+ $3 shipping/handling) in the US:

We are in the process of building a new online Introversion store, which will be coming online soon. We’ve relied on Worldpay for long enough and we all feel its about time we had a proper shopping system with cart, checkout, order tracking etc etc. We actually have a number of different products for sale over the Introversion site now (Uplink, UplinkMac, UplinkDevCD, Darwinia, DarwiniaPoster), and more to come, so it really was a requirement. We’ve seperated the delivery costs out for the first time (normally we include them directly in the price), because the new store will be dealing with seperate delivery costs allowing people to order multiple products and save a little money.

Additional info about ordering the Linux version can be found here. Moreover, IGN recently posted a review of the retro-inspired RTS.

    i think its a provocation that citizens in the u.s. have to pay 33% less then we in the e.u.

    just try this:
    - go to http://oddlabs.com/tribaltrouble.php
    - click on “Buy full version for $24.95″
    - click on “EUR”

    thats what an online-shop is meant to be.
    not just mailing addresses from country to country…

    the game can be as much fun as hell, but i cant relax if i think that someone laughs about me.

    The pricing does seem very strange. I wonder if
    somebody hasn’t been asleep while the dollar has
    been slipping against the Euro… of course, letting
    anyone that oblivious to finances set prices is,
    uhm, not so smart.

    I guess they’ll make another price change after a
    bit, especially if people in Europe try to buy
    the game paying with dollars…

    Oh, well, being in America, I won’t complain, but
    it certainly is a noticeable difference.

    I don’t understand what people are moaning about.

    Earlier, people were whining, ‘oh, american game players are poor because the dollar is so weak, cut us some pricing slack’ and then when someone does actually listen, people (even americans) crawl out of the woodwork to whine some more, even though the prices for everyone have been reduced.

    Good going…
