OpenXcom 1.0 Released 50

It's a small class of video games that still draw interest or inspire an active community 20 years after their first release — even if we're now 40 years into the era of commercial video games. Games like Doom, the several iterations of Civilization, and the Mario Brothers franchise will probably be around and played in some form many decades hence. The X-COM family of games fits, too, having inspired various spiritual successors since its release in 1994. Now, an anonymous reader writes that the open source (GPL) " OpenXcom 1.0 is finally released, after 5224 commits, 1843 days, and 606 resolved issues since v0.9. 20 years of X-COMXCOM oldschool lovers enjoy!"

    The art assets are from the original game; you actually need to have a copy of xcom to play. This is for people who want to play XCOM.

    Upping the resolution is a fine idea though, and as the game is moddable, you probably can up the resolution, and include all new artwork.

Adding features does not necessarily increase functionality -- it just makes the manuals thicker.
