The original creator of the XCOM franchise Julian Gollop has launched a new crowdfunding campaign on Fig for their latest game Phoenix Point.
Originally announced in March 2016, Phoenix Point sees the player taking command of a group called the Phoenix Project. Your mission is to protect earth from the mutated monstrosities that were created by the Pandora virus. The game takes quite a bit of inspiration from the more cinematic Firaxis XCOM games, which in my opinion is a really good thing.
The goal for the crowdfunding campaign is $500,000. So far the campaign has raised nearly $300,000 and has more than 4200 backers. The campaign ends on the 8th of June, so it seems quite likely that the game will be funded.
Below is a video that reveals a bit more about Phoenix Point and it’s crowdfunding campaign.
