Goldhawk Interactive’s Xenonauts is close to done. Really close. What’s “really” in an actual timeframe? Six days. If X-COM: Enemy Within left you with a massive craving for games combining tactical, isometric combat with high-level strategy, base-building and research, Xenonauts could be for you.
While there are two official games coming based on the classic XCOM (or, really, X-Com) universe, there’s another, less official one in the pipeline as well: PC indie strategy title Xenonauts.
OK, I admit it: I am as cynical as you when it comes to half-suspecting that enormously ambitious, fanbase-courting independent projects announced before work on them has even begun carry the dread stench of vapourware.
