If you've used Fig before and are interested in backing this, check the email your Fig account is registered too.

Bizarre crowdfunding strategy, but I'm quite hyped for the game--a procedural, reactive AI is exactly what the XCOM genre needs to keep replays fresh and worthwhile.

Why not Kickstarter? Obvious question but seriously

That looks super cool, but why is it only available for previous backers?

Well that's confusing and odd. I would have backed something like this.

It's a preview of the campaign, with early access tiers. It'll open up to everyone.

So weird. So you don't get access to the special pricing if you don't sign up for their spam? That's one way to get me not to back.

Needed to? Or still can?

Because I've been backing on fig for a while.

Here's the reply I got when I asked

Invites were only sent to Fig backers who had added the free "First Look Club" extra when pledging to one of the more recent campaigns.

I had emailed about confusion regarding access and previous FIG backers, and they gave me access to the campaign, so try emailing them.

Campaign was already past 50k (500k goal) last I checked

As I don't used fig before, I think the best I can do is to subscribe to this thread to follow the news.

This'll be my first fig campaign I back.

Hope it does well. His most recent game, Chaos Reborn, was a very well handled kickstarter and ended up being very good. And of course XCOM : Ufo Defence is the greatest PC of all time.

Hope the base dynamic is good. Images in the below interview seem to hint at something equivalent to TU's with MOV, but that would suggest they're just for movement, which would be a shame. I liked the freedom of being able to use TU's exclusively for one specific type of action or for a combination. Has been a year since then though, maybe things have changed.

Went for physical. Shame there's a big gap between 100 & 500. Feels like there should have been something there. Although maybe there was, I see references to a signed copy tier that doesn't seem to exist, maybe they ran out during the locked period.

Ew. Still backing of course but I've seen enough to know that developers of mid-sized or large games should stay away from Unity.
