If you're like me and barely remember that you backed things on Kickstarter two years ago, you might be as surprised as I am that the X-COM (as opposed to XCOM) inspired game Xenonauts is actually done. While the game apparently won't be officially released (i.e. taken off early access) for two weeks, it has reached version 1.0 and is essentially complete, any sort of quick fixes to bugs aside.
I've played it for like two hours and, hey, remember UFO Defense? It's like that, but somewhat modernized and set in 1979 instead of the far flung future of 1999. That's pretty much what I signed up for when I gave these guys my money back in 2012, but... in some way I'm not quite as enthusiastic about this idea as I once was. Maybe it has something to do with Enemy Unknown. Maybe it has something to do with this game also keeping some of the annoyances from old X-COM intact. Either way, if the idea of throwing disposable squaddies into the meat grinder before you get awesome laser weapons n' stuff appeals to you, this is a thing that you can pay money for!
