KEEP WATCHING THE SKIS.
I MEAN SKIES.
I had a look at this quite a while ago but decided not to d/l at the time as it was still really rough. Looks much much better now so am in the process of getting it now...
I just loved x-com spent hours on it when it was released on the ps1, just don't know anyone that has downloaded it!
Got it now but have no time to check this release just yet. Will report back in a few days...
Isn't this on Steam and is all dandy? What 'release'?
^^ Was what I was thinking... going for £20 I thought.
AI is a open source rethinking of UFO Enemy unknown. Been going for a good few years now.

I played it a while ago, a pretty faithful and good remake. There was loads of stuff still todo on it though and I havent checked for updates in over a year.
Just downloaded this, its pretty good for a free game. Last update July 2012, so it is still being worked on. Anyone else playing this?

Yes, downloaded it and had a quick mess with it. Put off by the lack of tutorial, I really think you will need a lot of time to get to grips with it, but it seemed to play well. Really can't judge it though as I have not played enough, but it give the impression of being like the original with obviously better graphics.
There are some interesting additions. On the geoscape screen, you need to build a UFO hangar (there is also a radar, SAM and Base option) to capture downed UFO's.

I am really getting into this now. The maps vary in size, depending on where you land. Researching is a bit slow, but have just unlocked laser weapons and have made the laser pistol. Researching laser rifles now.
