Just to say that if you ever liked old school X-Com, you should check this out. Only game I have ever backed before release and early access was promising but flawed - now I am fully happy with my war against the alien forces. Time units, base management, rookies and silly tactics like suicide bomb rushes into packed UFOs are all back the way they were in the old days with a shiny interface and some beautiful animations.

I played this and would play it more if it didn't require so much thought and while it looks a lot like a poor
man's version of any of the X-Com Games.

(I haven't played any of the earlier ones, yet!)

Looks outdated, but more fun and interesting to watch in other ways.

It's an indy remake of the original X-Com games, it looks a damn sight better than they did (as they were DOS....).
