Let's Play: Darwinia


Welcome again to a new Let's Play! Do you wanna know what's one of the greatest things in this life? Native Linux games! This time i wanna talk about a game called... Darwinia! Many of you already know that game, because it is simply one of the best indie games ever created. In a virtual world, you control some people called Darwinians, and the aim of the game is to destroy some viruses created by the evil Dr. Sepulveda.

A matter of choice?

Since this is a native Linux game, and you are a Linux user (YOU ARE A LINUX USER, ARE YOU?!??), take a deep breath and play the game under your distro.
