Xcom fanart by artbycarlos Xcom fanart by artbycarlos
A fan art I did from this amazing game.. Xcom terror from the deep. Much better than all the "HD 720pp pipi popo Ultra high def 3d" the companies sell now.

This reminds me of the style that the new shadowrun is going with. Nice work!

holy shit, if only... Great stuff.

Xcom rocks.

The folks who try to do the remakes miss the essence of Xcom and only look at the superficial stuff. I bet most of them did not play the game.

Xcom was one of those games in which you would start playing at 10pm and suddenly its 4am.

Looks great.

can you give me a hint about how to handle terror-missions early in the game?
sevenofeleven Featured By Owner Feb 19, 2012
I wish I remembered more but I have not played in years.
Not sure it even runs in Win 7.
I had collected tips for Xcom from a magazine and threw them out last week.

Maybe you can find hints from doing a google search.
Most of what I remember from Xcom 1
What I remember:
1. You only need one of anything to research, sell the rest for money or use it.

2. Go slowly and make sure there is someone on watch. If you have 2 people, move one guy up to half of his movement points and do not move the other guy. If something shows up, the guy that did not move can react to enemies. Next move, move the guy that did not move and do not move the other guy.

3. Save often.

4. Always have some rookies on your team, they need training too.
Wish I could remember more.

well i can tell ya this game breaks my nerves.
sevenofeleven Featured By Owner Feb 19, 2012
The best ones do.

You might like Clive Barker's "The Undying", the graphics are old
school but it still has lots of atmosphere. Some of the gameplay elements are old school like an over reliance on jumping. I know a cheat that allows me to get past that. Undying works fine in Win7.

Hellgate london is buggy but if you look past them there is a pretty good shooter. Things have popped up out of the ground in front of me and I have jumped.
If you have a 64 bit computer you do not need the cd to play and if you have a directx 10 video card or higher you will see some cool eyecandy. If you decide to install the game add the 2 patches first and then play. There are some big changes between the first and 2nd patch.

Hellgate London Review

Old school shooter but the environments are very detailed and there are a lot of places to fight in.

Read it and replied.

Mate, I love this game. It's one of those jewels I've finished and I keep reinstalling for some extra fun from time to time. It's amazing with such huge fandom there is nearly no good fanart for this game.

We need a rebuild of the original just upgrading the graphics. Whoever does that will receive so mucho love, jaja.

Why would you bring a coelacanth on a trawler mission?
The-Zerg-Overlord Featured By Owner Mar 15, 2011  Hobbyist Writer
damn nice, but wondering why you didn't update the menu stuff....still badass art
Killerratte Featured By Owner Mar 6, 2011  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Holy shit, this is PERFECT. Combine this background art style with 3D models and we would finally have a real new Xcom game.


well of course this will never happen

X-Com rules forever. I hate fucking Take-Two Marin making remake called "XCOM", it wil be FPS at 50's years ! Sad.
adalciligiero94 Featured By Owner Sep 8, 2010
X-Com X-Com. Very cool. I played this game since I was 6 years.
Lots of strategy and fun. Very nice work, man! XD

This is as should the game look like. This is great.

Totally totally awesome. I wish you could upgrade the game to have your version of the graphics :)
RubenAlexanderBarron Featured By Owner Jul 4, 2010
what did you use to create this im interested in doing the same to the tftd graphics, maybe we can team up
thirdeyepl Featured By Owner Jun 7, 2010  Professional Digital Artist
"Much better than all the "HD 720pp pipi popo Ultra high def 3d" the companies sell now" is legendary. Nice overpaint - too bad they are not making any remakes...

Mate, that's the cool way of thinking, resurrect the old times.

High five!

XCOM OMG, draw some enemy unknown action , shadowrun for sega, fallout 2 and xcom are best games i ewer playd
JSeuss Featured By Owner Mar 15, 2010
Great work!

I agree, X-Com games in 3D are just ruined by the 'fancy' graphics.

That's why I'm building Isochron [link] with a true 2D retro feel.

Long live turn based isometric strategy games! :D

Terror from the deep was hard(never beaten it), it only gave me nightmares and made me go back to enemy unkown.
Faei Featured By Owner Mar 2, 2010
This is my all time favourite strategy game, well Enemy Unknown to be honest. This work really speaks to me, great job. :)

I have this game on Steam! When I was a kid I couldn't have it at the time but I'm playing through the Xcom series now, awesome strategy games!

Excellent job with the rendition, looks modern yet retro, very faithful art to the original feel of the game...
