X-Com Inspired Phoenix Point Reaches Goal

This is great news for fans.

 

X-COM INSPIRED PHOENIX POINT ACHIEVES FUNDING

 

Phoenix Point Surpasses Crowd-Publishing Goal of $500K   

 

Los Angeles, USA – April XX, 2017 – Today, Snapshot Games Inc, makers of the crowdfunded critical hit Chaos Reborn (85% Metacritic), announced Phoenix Point, a turn-based tactics and world-based strategy game, and a spiritual successor to the X-COM franchise, surpassed its crowd-publishing goal of $500K USD on Fig (www.fig.co).

 

Set for a Q4 2018 launch, and in development for Windows PC, Mac and Linux, Phoenix Point comes from the minds of Julian Gollop, veteran designer of the original X-COM games, and David Kaye, the founder of Gaming Insiders.  

 

ABOUT PHOENIX POINT

The spread of alien Pandoravirus was an unimaginable extinction event, nearly wiping out all human life. The fortunate majority were quickly killed off by the virus, but some were mutated by the aggressive virus, which attacks human DNA sequences and imbeds its own transformative DNA, thereby mutating humans into horrifically disfigured alien species with the ability to clone.  Those who somehow survived gather in isolated havens spread throughout the world, with several of the largest and most powerful factions of radically contrasting ideologies controlling most of the world’s resources

 

You play as part of the Phoenix Project, a worldwide organization set in place before the Pandoravirus, and designed to activate in times of world peril. You and your team must find out what has happened to the other Phoenix Project sleeper cells as you race to bring humanity back from the brink of extinction. Along the way, you will encounter constant threats from an ever-increasing variety of alien mutants (procedural generation system) armed with varying tactical abilities and intense boss battles with massive monsters and alien land walkers. Aliens are not your only concern as you will come face to face with unpredictable interactions with human factions with their ideologies and rife with internal conflicts including kidnappings, assassinations, sabotage, military coups, and base defense missions.

 

STRETCH GOALS ANNOUNCED

Two key stretch goals were recently announced. The $650K USD level brings ‘Driveable Vehicles’ to Phoenix Point, complete with customization, from body to weapons like high powered turrets. Vehicles will serve as troop carriers, provide heavy artillery support, and transport/retrieve equipment. The $850K USD level provides players with a ‘Floating Phoenix Base’, which is a fortress of operations to conduct air strikes as well as sea travel.
