Original X-COM creator announces new project

Julian Gollop, the mind behind the original X-COM back in the day, has announced a new project that will harken back to that game.

In a post on Twitter, Gollop wrote that he is going back to his sci-fi roots with Phoenix Point. This is "an XCOM style game that incorporates the modern presentation and slick game play of the Firaxis reboot with the more strategic, open-world approach of the very first X-COM game from 1994."

He also pitched to both investors and publishers that he would like to chat to in order to raise funding for the projects.

Gallop's studio, Snapshot Games, released its first title, Chaos Reborn, last year. The turn-based tactical role-playing game sits at an 85% rating on Metacritic.

Despite its crowdfunding success, it doesn't look like Snapshot Games is going to turn to Kickstarter again for Phoenix Point.
