Thanks for all the support everyone! On to more X-COM news, David Craddock is writing a book about the making of the original game, which I figured fans would be interested in. From the author’s own words:
Monsters in the Dark: The Making of X-COM: UFO Defense tells the story of the early years of legendary strategy game designer Julian Gollop and the making of the original X-COM, and is funding now on Kickstarter.
The standard edition will be available from retailers, but the special edition is exclusive to the Kickstarter and contains some bonus content (including an interview with yours truly). So if you need to know everything about X-COM, go check it out.
Edit: Second chance to get the book on Indiegogo.
