What is Xenonauts? From the Xenonauts website:

Quote

Xenonauts is a strategy game in which you control a multi-national military organisation defending a Cold War-era Earth from alien invasion, using small squads of persistent soldiers to eliminate the extraterrestrials and recover their technology in turn-based ground combat. A detailed strategic layer allows you to co-ordinate the defence of the planet, using your interceptors to shoot down UFOs and researching captured artefacts to learn about your foes and unlock new combat equipment to use on your missions.

Xenonauts is a spiritual successor to the classic X-Com strategy games from the 1990s. We aim to improve the graphics, add new content and streamline the interface whilst still retaining all of the key mechanics of the original games. Devoted fans should love this game, but we’re also keen to introduce the joys of old-school grand strategy to a whole new generation of players who might not otherwise experience it!

Produced by Goldhawk Interactive and released on June 17, 2014, this is as close to an X-COM remake as we'll probably ever get. I encourage you to check out there website for more information and screenshots and if you are ready to take the plunge, head on over to Steam or GOG to reserve yourself a copy (current price $24.99)!

Zombie: Empirical data's your only man, when formulating a research plan.
A soldier's death is never in vain if it makes the formula more plain.
A few dozen make a better case for refining that third decimal place.
They call me Zombie because I don't sleep, as I slowly struggle to climb this heap,
of corpses, data points, and trials, but from the top - I'll see for miles!

Why would you want something close to X-COM when you can have X-COM :P With OpenXcom and sick modders out there (Yeah I'm pointing at you Hobbes) competing with X-COM is pointless. Of course there is XCOM but that's different league.

About Xenonauts. They should look fine, the first part of the game is fine, but when you reach 60% of game completion, the game just derails from the track of fun. If you have time you can also read this http://www.strategyc...ocide-underway/ Or just any other LP and decide by yourself.
