Open Xcom

For some time now Open Xcom┬áhas been floating at the edge of my awareness. In teh past I’ve looked at ‘remakes’ and they’ve never felt right but this project looks like it may be just the ticket to bring back the full Xcom experience without the hassles and bugs caused by a modern operating system.

Version 0.9 has just been released and I’m looking forward to trying it out. When I have doen so I’ll post about my experience with it here, but in the meantime, if you are a fan of UFO: Enemy Unknown, X-Com, and have the original game files somewhere then you should dust them off and give Open Xcom a try. I’ll be interested to see if anyone wants to post thoughts on it here.
