Cell Emergence

A press release from indie developer New Life Interactive has revealed a release date for Cell: Emergence, an upcoming downloadable title.

The game will be coming to Xbox LIVE Indie Games, GamersGate, GameStop PC Downloads, Green Man Gaming, Playism, and Desura on February 9, with a free demo being released two days earlier on February 7.

Xbox 360 owners will be able to purchase the game for 400 Microsoft Points while the Cell HD PC version will cost $8.95. The latter will include half a million more cells and improved fidelity.

According to New Life Interactive, Cell: Emergence is “inspired by ‘hard’ ’80s arcade games like Defender, Centipede, and Missile Command, [and] offers 17 punishing levels that require players to decipher a level’s ‘cellular automata’ simulation and then battle living processes with speed and dexterity.”

Sheldon Pacotti, lead writer on Deus Ex and Deus Ex: Invisible War, wrote the story for Cell: Emergence. For more information on the game, check out GamerNode’s exclusive interview with Pacotti.

My first experience playing a video game blew me away. The fact that Super Metroid was that game certainly helped. So I like to think Samus put me on the path to video games. Well, I guess my parents buying the SNES had a little something to do with it. Ever since then my passion for video games has grown. When I found that I could put words together into a coherent sentence, videogame journalism was a natural interest. Now I spend a large majority of my time either playing video games or writing about them, and I wouldn’t have it any other way.
