    Just saw this from a wastelands 3 update. Looks like it is almost funded.
    While I did enjoy the new xcom games the classic is still my favorite. I'll be backing this one.

    You should try the xenonauts game just like the old classic ones

    That was actually the first games I gave money to while it was being developed. Looking forward to the second one as well.

    Been watching this one for a few months, definitely will be picking this one up when it goes gold. I actually just started XCOM 2: War of the Chosen back up. But it's so buggy I can't even play it. I had the same amount of bugs/crashes as I did when XCOM2 was first released, until like the 2nd big patch and it was flawless after that. But no such luck with WotC. ::

    Watching this one closely. I like the fact that hit rolls are based upon the amount of surface area your aiming circle encompasses. Something like 50% chance to land a hit within the small circle, and 100% chance for it to land within the outer circle. And since I'm a huge fan of XCOM and XCOM 2, I was curious what features were/weren't present.



    And some gameplay by Party Elite

    Resurrecting this since I just saw an ad for this! I'm a huge fan of the recent XCOMs and I'm betting this will be just as good if a bit different. By original designer OP means Julian Gollop under his studio Snapshot Games.

    Looks like release is planned for June 2019.

    Release has been postponed to September 2019 for additional testing and polish. Probably a good move to clean up bugs and they could certainly benefit from some more marketing leading up to release.

    Well, it looks like an early beta version of XCOM2. I'm not sure why would I want this.

    Because it is a new turn based game from the guys who created XCOM? If you like that kind of the game I think the question should be why wouldn't you want this?
    I love turn based games, can't have enough of them imo. I'm glad for the delay, Xenonaunts 2 is also due out this summer I believe. Few months spacing should make it better for both companies.
