Low-fi space strategy XO goes live on Kickstarter
Mmmm, wireframes. I’ve had half an eye on XO for a while, ever since the developers sent me an e-mail about it having (correctly) summised it was making a direct warp jump down my street. It’s a spaceship strategy game in which you control a Battlestar Galactica style “last fleet” attempting to escape from an unbeatable enemy. It gets rid of that pesky third dimension to simplify things in the RTS-with-pause sphere, which allows for a more complex political element as you try to manage relationships with your captains.
