Just a little update on the fine-looking UFO: Alien Invasion game - SparX has posted the following on our forums:

We are planning to release a fully playable demo of UFO - Alien Invasion on the 14. February.

Visit our project homepage at http://ufo.myexp.de

I hope you will like the demo...


So if you're not busy being lovey-dovey with your other half on Valentine's Day, be sure to check it out! :inlove:
May your terror missions always be infested with Chrysalids.

The demo looks good, but I can honestly say that unless they implement reaction fire, I won't be getting the full version.

Hey, which computer game magazine is the most popular in the UK? I would like to ask them if they want to put the demo on their cover disk.

I played the demo and it looks awesome :) ! But I agree with Zager, reaction fire is needed, without it, it isnt as fun or realistic. But besides that, it looks really good.

If I recall correctly, PCZone is one of the most supportive UK magazines in terms of turnbased strategy games. I think they did a lot of free advertising by way of articles for Laser Squad Nemesis and a bit for UFO Aftermath as well.

To be honest, I'd say try PCZone for a start. You want to be looking for one main supporter to keep happy with updates and in turn they'll probably be more happy with you as you're giving them exclusives and they're giving you free advertising :)

Feel free to email both, and maybe even PCFormat (if it's still around... doesn't seem to get its name around the web as much and I haven't bought a games magazine for years!)
May your terror missions always be infested with Chrysalids.

I would suggest removing teh referece to "X-COM" in the final screen though. Infogrames/Atari wave their lawyers about quite a lot :)
