Darwinia combines state of the art fractal generated landscapes with iconic arcade sprites and is inspired by the rich pantheon of classic 80s computer games, as well as contemporary gems such as Rez. Video game sprites such as the Space Invader, the Defender and the Tron ship all show up for cameo appearances, all rendered in minimalist low polygon purity. Old styles of pixel art show up, translated into the modern 3D setting. Tribes of Darwinians roam the landscape, embodied as 2D sprites lost within a 3D world. Fractal generated vistas are grafted onto a wireframe grid, giving the world the appearance of being under construction. Overhead layers of blocky pixellated clouds roll past the camera. Mathematically perfect fractal trees dot the landscape. Darwinia is highly stylized and utterly unique in its visual theme and will immediately grab the attention of anyone who gets a glimpse.
