X-COM Creator Gollop Teases Tactical Combat Gamez

A Phoenix Point website is online, saying this is the "new game from the creator of the original X-COM," who is Julian Gollop. There's nothing there but newsletter signups Rock, Paper, Shotgun points the way to a tweet from Gollop with all there is to know about this for the moment, which says:

Phoenix Point is our new game - turn based tactical combat - world based strategy - http://www.phoenixpoint.info/

Oh yeah, I'd forgotten all about that Kickstarter one:

Chaos Reborn

I'm tempted to buy it since it appears to be on sale right now too. **Whoops, primarily a multiplayer game, curses.

They added a single player campaign. There's also a demo on Steam so you can try it out. Haven't tried the SP campaign yet to see if its worth it for that alone, but the game is pretty cheap.

Julian Gollop?

Is that why the call it a Gollop Chamber in the game?
Indeed. I read somewhere that they did that as an homage.

Children these days have no respect...Mr Gollop & Sid Meier - 2 of the best videogame designers ever. Shoo now, go play with your phone or something.

I was secretly hoping that Chaos Reborn might lead to bigger things and it seems there`s hope. It probably won`t be nothing close to Dreamland Chronicles Reborn- my ultimate vaporware Holy Grail - but TBS combat and overworld sounds tasty enough anyway.

He's certainly worth of the benefit of the doubt I agree. Sid alone has given me more value for my money with Civ than every other game I've ever bought combined.

I hope it's something in the realm of Syndicate meets System Shock.

I backed his last game on Kickstarter, which came out and I believe is finished... and never even installed it.

Was it fun?
