    I know there are a lot of fans of the X-com series, so I thought I would do some shameless promoting here.

    Xenonauts is an isometric strategy game similar to X-com, made by an indie developer called Goldhawk Interactive.

    TotalBiscuit takes a look at xenonauts at the Eurogamer Expo:



    This is the developer I've been collaborating with for the last few months.
    My role in the development of the game is to edit the 3d rendered base tiles, adding detail, and creating the damaged and destroyed versions.
    So if the final in game levels look bad you know who to rage against. LOL

    Definitely looks great and interesting but the price is just too big for me. : /

    I've been watching this for quite some time, seemed almost like vaporware.

    Awesome that it's not, will be watching that video later.

    I was rather hoping for a Psychonauts sequel, but this looks pretty awesome. Know anything about a release date? Wikipedia says later on this year.

    Dragoon nailed it. I'm not a fan of this kind of game, but wanted a spiritual successor to Psychonauts. I think Schafer has gone the way of Burton and insists on himself too much to take the road and succeed, though.

    Looks like they were trying to form a deal with Steam, and the Project Manager is now working full time
