defcon.jpg Over at FiringSquad, we spotted an interview with Introversion founder Chris Delay about the firm's upcoming PC indie title Defcon.

The absolute best thing about the interview is Delay's description of the seriously subversive Office Mode: "We're very excited by Office Mode. The basic idea is that a group of work-mates can start the game up in the morning in Office Mode, playing over their local area network."

He explains: "The game takes place entirely in real-time (you can quite easily end the world with nuclear conflict in 8 hours) and each player controls one territory, e.g. North America or Russia. You can hit the Panic key (press escape twice) which immediately removes the game from the screen and places a discreet icon in your system tray." It's like the fake spreadsheet key in those '80s PC games!
