UFO Screenshots
It is the year 2084. You control a secret organisation charged with
defending Earth from a brutal alien enemy. Build up your bases, prepare
your team, and dive head-first into the fast and flowing turn-based
combat.

UFO: ALIEN INVASION is a squad-based tactical
strategy game in the tradition of the old X-COM PC games, but with a
twist. Our game combines military realism with hard science-fiction and
the weirdness of an alien invasion. The carefully constructed
turn-based system gives you pin-point control of your squad while
maintaining a sense of pace and danger.

Over the long term you will need to conduct
research into the alien threat to figure out their mysterious goals and
use their powerful weapons for your own ends. You will produce unique
items and use them in combat against your enemies. If you like, you can
even use them against your friends with our multiplayer functionality.

'UFO: Alien Invasion'. Endless hours of gameplay -- absolutely free.

The game takes a lot of inspiration from the X-COM series by Mythos and
Microprose. However, it's neither a sequel nor a remake of any X-COM or
other commercial title. What we as a team wanted to make is a brand new
experience that tries to surpass the quality of games from 1992, rather
than simply recreate them with flashier graphics.

We also believe that open-source projects don't
need to be disorganised or badly-managed. We work together in a
friendly and professional way, with a clear vision for a game that we
know is worth playing.

CaveExpress

News 1 comment

A new game I'm working on is now available for Android. If you like the game, please rate it.


CaveExpress is a classic 2D platformer with physics-based gameplay and dozens of levels. Master your pedal-powered flying machine to pick up packages from your cave-dwelling clients and drop them off
at the collection point. But beware! Mighty mastodons, terrifying pterodactyls and others would rather see you extinct.

I'm also working on a Windows version released on Desura. It will be available soon.

Never get any replies there.. lol

But I think I've sorted it, played a couple of missions now and it hasn't crashed.. yet. UFO doesn't like high resolutions it seems, I've managed to get it up to 1280x768 without it crashing now. It gets laggy at times in some missions which it shouldn't really, I've got a Radeon 7970. I can play Metro Crysis 2, well what ever you want to name on ultra full whack without even a hint of a stutter yet UFO lags.. strange stuff.

Definitely something to do with it not liking the resolution.

But other than that I've really been enjoying this game, recommend it to anyone. Cept Ubuntu users with good graphics cards who want a decent resolution ofc :P

It's a nice game but it could use a completely redesigned UI to improve the experience of playing the game and maybe new graphics to improve the appeal to potential new players. IMO the features are fine, although I hardly played or watched others play.

I see how you're talking about all these things but I can't tell if they've been implemented. Are the new faces or armor textures already in the Desura version or the version you have on your website? I haven't been givin a message for an update to the game.

Desura only hosts our stable version, 2.4. Most of the new screenshots we post are in our development version, 2.5-dev. You can get nightly builds of our latest if you'd like at the following link, but be warned that it is the bleeding edge of development, and some things may occassionally not work.

Hello Devs, I've loved all your hard work since the very beginning!

Since my brother and I are huge fans of this rare genre, will you add Local Co-op vs. A.I. where we control 2 different squads? Also can you add a Local vs. mode for those of us who don't mind taking turns on the same screen? I'll be playing with my brother and we'll never cheat ;)

Voted only for you in the TBS category! thankyou

we already have coop against the ai working in multiplayer - but it's currently way instable and hard to set up. we hope to improve this in the future.

Thanks for your reply, I really can't wait for co-op! Playing with my bro will be fun :)

Also can't wait for Single Player greatness!

Our multiplayer (coop and adversarial) needs a lot of work. 2.5 won't see any major changes but I'm hoping we'll get to it for 2.6. A way to host local games would be nice, but we will probably focus on improving the regular multiplayer functionality first. If you've got a decent computer, you may be able to just install the game to two different locations on your computer and switch between them to approximate local multiplayer play.

That should work as well, I'll do that thanks for your comment ;)

Hoping you make it to the Top 10!
