Xenonauts 2
« on: October 24, 2016, 05:05:21 PM »
There's a public build out to try for free. Ground combat only using the new 3D engine. I'll be having a look at this when I get home tonight. You'll need to install GOG Galaxy though.

The original Xenonauts is an excellent game..one I like as much, or more than X-Com. There...I said it. I have played ALL the X-Com games, all the way back to 1991.

Just an FYI.  You can get a free peek at Xenonauts 2.  The devs are releasing development builds of Xenonauts 2 for free.

When X-COM cast off its hyphen and complexity to become XCOM, Xenonauts was handily here with old-school alien-busting. Now you can see how its sequel is shaping up, as developers Goldhawk Interactive are releasing development builds of Xenonauts 2 [official site] for free. You can play one single mission right now, then Goldhawk plan to expand this pre-alpha demo fortnightly. They’ll start charging money once the game’s in good enough shape but paying with feedback is peachy-dory for now.

I've backed the Kickstarter.  I think I own Xenonauts somewhere in my library of games never played.  But did play the original X-Com games when I was little nipper.

Yeah I own the first Xenonauts and played it for all of five minutes. Ended up backing the second game anyway because 1/ hardcore XCOM would have to try really hard to disappoint and 2/ A game for £18 with Early Access seems like a good deal. I can also probably cover it for work.

Still, I've reinstalled X1 to try and give it a better look at, so that I don't look so silly.

There is a Xenonauts 2 Demo available from GOG.
Regardless of how good a PC game may be it will always have its detractors and no matter how bad a PC game may be it will always have its fans.

I did not care for the first Xenonauts.  Think I'll wait until I see the reviews of the finished game.

I loved the original Xenonauts.  The novella that set the game up was awesome for atmosphere, and the game captured the same kind of vibe as the original X-Com.

The mid/end-game gets a little grindy, and I'll admit that I abandoned it about 2/3 or 3/4 of the way through.  But that was still easily 60+ hours of riveting game play!
