Xbox Live Arcade has been getting some great indie-developed titles during its existence, and now it’s about to get another indie gem in the form of Darwinia+.

Introversion is releasing the PC strategy game as its first ever console release on 10 February, bringing the much loved original game to XBLA with a host of new features (hence the ‘+’). It’s being called the “Director’s Cut” of Darwinia, adding new tutorials, control options, a new user interface and Avatar Awards.

The game will set you back 1200 Microsoft Points, which may seem like a lot but I assure you that it’s worth it. I didn’t play the entirety of the original, but I loved every second of the bits I did play. It’s a ‘must buy’ for me, and it should be making your list too if you want to start experiencing the best of what the indie game community has to offer.
