X-COM creator Julian Gollop launches Kickstarter for new strategy game Chaos Reborn

Chaos Reborn

By on March 18, 2014 at 9:12 am

Some of you may be old enough to remember the original ZX Spectrum game Chaos, published in 1985. I certainly don’t because that’s the year I was born. Anyway, X-COM creator Julian Gollop was behind that, and he’s picking it up for a complete remastering with Chaos Reborn, now available for your funding on Kickstarter.

According to Gollop, Chaos Reborn is a game of not just tactics but bluffing and deception, with a magic combat system focused around summoning creatures, moving and fighting with them, and using your wizard powers to manipulate the battlefield. The game expands on the original, offering new multiplayer modes, a single-player campaign, and co-op play.

Gollop is asking for a (relatively) modest $180,000 to finish the game, which is mostly feature-complete. 1063 people have already pledged $37,000, so chances are pretty good this one will make it over the line. Check it out here.

Julian Gollop making a low budget, turn based game? Sounds awesome… I just wish it was a proper UFO/XCOM sequel.

 

I had a ZX spectrum! It had a 2kb addon ram that was as big as a fist.

Try Xenonauts.

Personally I found it boring as batshit, but at least it reminded me how good both the original and new X-COMs are.
