Help identifying nuclear strike game

There's a game where you just look at a map of the world. You can build different ranged nuclear missiles and move submarines for a while. Then there's a phase where everybody launches the missiles. The graphics are very minimal. I think it was a independently-released game. Maybe released five years ago or so. It was allegedly based on some nuclear strike principle. Everybody gets attacked but the country who suffers the least losses wins. Anyone know the name? I have the game but I can't find it.

    I loved the minimalist sound effects when the nukes start impacting,

    I really should dig up my Introversion shop account and put that game on Steam. I have a nicer computer now.

    The best part is the soundtrack, what with the quiet sobbing as you issue launch orders.

    Edit: Also, if anyone's wondering, the game still has a modest, active online playerbase. Not much, but enough to find at least one full server most of the time.

    There's a present-granting achievement for it, if that helps.

    As soon as I heard the sobbing in the background as I played the demo, I knew that I could never, ever play this game again. I just can't handle it.

    Isn't Nuclear Strike an actual game too?

    Centrism is just the cowardly way to be a bigot w/o being explicit about it.
    American politics isn't 4D chess, it's just if you give a shit about other people or not.

    Anyone want to turn this into a game on? I'd be up for some DEFCON games over the next few days.

    It is. Overhead shooter.

    I thought DEFCON, having the subtitle 'Everybody Dies' and all would be humorous, but... Wow... That game's fucking heavy.
