Back in January, we informed you about Xenonauts, a spiritual successor to the classic X-Com games. Well, guess what everyone? Goldhawk Interactive, the team behind it, has decided to start a Kickstarter for it. Goldhawk’s goal is relatively small, as they need $50K USD to fund the game. There are 32 days left and the Kickstarter is almost at $10K, so we can safely assume that Xenonauts will hit its initial mark.
Xenonauts is a spiritual successor to the classic X-Com strategy games. We are aiming to take the original mechanics and update them for the modern age, making them easier to use and more in-depth without changing the fundamentals. All the classic features are present and accounted for – things like turn-based combat, destructible environments, soldier permadeath and large squad sizes.
Those interested can also try a demo for Xenonauts.

While he is a die-hard PC gamer, his gaming roots can be found on consoles. John loved - and still does - the 16-bit consoles, and considers SNES to be one of the best consoles. Still, the PC platform won him over consoles. That was mainly due to 3DFX and its iconic dedicated 3D accelerator graphics card, Voodoo 2.
