ICYMI, “Phoenix Point is a tactics game with a surprisingly complex 4x-style overworld from Julian Gollop, creator of the original X-Com.” Its sci-fi strategy and squad tactics gameplay looks, feels, and works much like X-Com, but as is mentioned in TheGamer’s review, has its own “philosophically different approach to the genre”. Where X-Com has Earth’s population defending against an invading alien force from outer space, Phoenix Point has humanity attempting to survive after having opened a viral ‘Pandora’s Box’.

After scientists allow an “unusual virus discovered in melting permafrost” to escape their labs and turn the world’s inner space sea creatures into mutated monstrosities, the virus goes airborne and decimates the human population worldwide. You control a cell of the Phoenix Project, and are tasked with leading soldiers, scientists, and engineers in a fight to survive and discover a way to eliminate the Pandoravirus before all human life is exterminated.
