UFO: Alien Invasion Released For Macs
6:00 AM | Cord Kruse | 6 comments

The team behind the open source UFO: Alien Invasion recently released the Mac edition of version 2.2 of the game. Alien Invasion is a squad-based tactical strategy game in the tradition of the X-COM series. It gives players the chance combat an alien invasion through skillful resource management and tactical combat with the otherworldly invaders.

UFO: ALIEN INVASION combines military realism with hard science-fiction and the weirdness of an alien invasion. The carefully constructed turn-based system gives you pin-point control of your squad while maintaining a sense of pace and danger.

Over the long term you will need to conduct research into the alien threat to figure out their mysterious goals and use their powerful weapons for your own ends. You will produce unique items and use them in combat against your enemies. If you like, you can even use them against your friends with our multiplayer functionality.

The game takes a lot of inspiration from the X-COM series by Mythos and Microprose. However, it's neither a sequel nor a remake of any X-COM or other commercial title. What we as a team wanted to make is a brand new experience that tries to surpass the quality of games from 1992, rather than simply recreate them with flashier graphics.

We also believe that open-source projects don't need to be disorganised or badly-managed. We work together in a friendly and professional way, with a clear vision for a game that we know is worth playing.
UFO: Alien Invasion is free to download and play. Follow the links below for more information.
