---------------------------------------------------------

General

It is the year 2084. You control a secret organisation charged with defending Earth from a brutal alien enemy. Build up your bases, prepare your team, and dive head-first into the fast and flowing turn-based combat.

UFO: Alien Invasion is a squad-based tactical strategy game in the tradition of the old X-COM PC games, but with a twist. Our game 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.

UFO: Alien Invasion. Endless hours of gameplay ? absolutely free.

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.
---------------------------------------------------------


Warning.

* On systems with 64MB video card you could have the usual texture problem. You have to wait the new w3d drivers that will resolve this problem.
* If you have problems during launch of the game and your partition is using an SFS file system please try to test in on a JXFS or FFS partition

Thanks.

An idea: put md5sum of the archive up, so it's easier to share such a large file...

I downloaded the LhA file but there are no bsp files. This means you can't get to the tactical (main as far as time spent IMO) part.

It uses the engine from Quake 2, so it isn't exactly demanding.

^ That's what happens here if I try to start it a second time (after quitting that is) without rebooting. The first time I get to the geoscape fine.

Same here - on both machines. I suppose it might be the mentioned problem with the file systems.

 Re: UFO Alien Invasion
I put a new little HD, and make a new partition in XJFS. move the game to this partition and now works o.k., well, it makes a request for "Cygnix:" assign, but after cancel, all works O.K.

Now, I try in a partition with FFS.

I used to thoroughly enjoy playing UFO: Enemy Unknown on my Amiga, it is good to see the brand live on. Are there any plans of re-releasing the originals for classic users?
