Digital Monument Press is excited to announce The X-COM Files: How Alien Invaders, Rebel Squads, and Gooey Blobs Took Strategy Gaming by Storm. Written by David L. Craddock and due for release on Amazon's Kindle platform later this year, The X-COM Files chronicles the making of X-COM: UFO Defense, Laser Squad, Chaos, and other strategy games created by legendary designer Julian Gollop.
"I read David Craddock's book, Stay Awhile and Listen , and I thought it was quite an intricate, deep-dive into the inner workings of Blizzard Entertainment," said Julian Gollop. "I would like to see the [ X-COM] book as kind of a historical record of a game that was influential. Hopefully it can provide some inspiration, and also some fascination for how things were done in the early days of the games industry. And in some cases, how badly things were done as well."
The X-COM Files is due for release in 2014 on Kindle, with availability on other platforms following thereafter.
