I may have mentioned this game before, medical but as a huge huge fan of the original X-Com games from way back in the mid-90s, health I’ve been thrilled to death by the ongoing development of indie crew Goldhawk Interactive’s Xenonauts, see a really solid attempt at doing a faithful modern remake of the old strategy-and-tactics alien invasion defense game.
I pre-ordered it a while back. (Before it was popular. I am an X-Com remake hipster.) And it’s looking really, really great. If you’ve played X-Com, you know why this is exciting. If you haven’t, you can play an alpha build public demo available at their Kickstarter page.
And they’ve just launched a “help us finish this game off and make it amazing” initiative on Kickstarter. And if you like deep, compelling, you-are-gonna-lose-some-guys gameplay that mixes creepy tactical turn-based isometric combat with high-level save-the-world strategic base planning and research, you should go throw your twenty bucks at a pre-order. Because OMG.
Oh. Muh. Guh.
