I'm all for supporting the kind of games you like - and that means buying them. OpenXcom... I'm far overdue in trying it out.
I've still not tried it out myself, but I get the feeling I know how it will play anyway
The whole point of the project (for anyone who doesn't yet know) is to rebuild the original game from the ground up in an open source language with a view to fixing the bugs present in the final release of the original as well as removing limits imposed by the technology of the time in terms of solder/inventory etc, as well as obviously allowing you to mod the game however you like.
It's no small feat, and they seem to be making excellent progress having polished off quite a lot of what I would assume are the harder tasks - I'm looking forward to having a tinker with it myself when I get more time.
Back to the topic at hand, I'm also planning on having a thorough play of Xenonauts too.
I want to see the inside of the UFO in my avatar.
