Fresh from his last title, Chaos Reborn, which is doing alright for itself on that fancy Steam thing, X-COM progenitor Julian Gollop has just teased his next project: Phoenix Point. What is it exactly? I have no idea.
Alright, I have some idea, but only because Gollop provided this helpful tweet:
Phoenix Point is our new game – turn based tactical combat – world based strategy – https://t.co/sHy3Cts0Fs

“Turn based tactical combat” is basically Gollop’s MO, so no surprises here. “World based strategy” on the other hand will be somewhat fresher territory for the designer, harking back to the days of UFO Defense and the like.
If you want to hear more, you’ll have to sign-up for updates via the teaser site. Otherwise, join me in analysing the image above, which gives off rather distinct StarCraft vibes.
