Ildamos - the guy behind a 5,000-word UFO: AI review is back. This time he created a Let's Play for our beloved game.
Congratulations, it's an..... awesome game
At 12:53 MET UFO: Alien Invasion was reborn into a world without alien wars. We are proud to give it the name 2.5.
At the time we released 2.4 (2012-05) we planned to put out the next release a lot faster. So much for the theory. It took us more than two years to release the version 2.5. This version is the next big milestone for making the game feature complete. We took the time to balance and tweak a lot on the campaign to improve the fun and replayability for all of you.
As a sidenote we have replaced all our assets with Debian compatible licenses which will hopefully bring us a lot more players since we now can be part of the big Debian/Ubuntu universe. It only took us a few years to reach this goal. Thanks for everyone to support us.
Make sure to check out the Changelog and download the game. We hope to be able to provide some more binaries and installers in the next few days. Hopefully we will be available via apt-get install ufoai on Debian and Ubuntu very soon, too.
You should also make sure to not miss the next big thing we are working on since a few months now. The UI redesign. This is what we are going to call 2.6. The majority of this version will be about UI. Let's see how long it'll take to release that baby.
Please make sure to spread the word on facebook, twitter, blogs or whatever other social media channel you use. Reviews would be awesome, too - please let us know about them (so that we can link them). But most importantly - go and play the game!
We are also always looking for new contributors. If you know how to code c/c++ or want to learn it - or you know how to create models, textures or like to create maps, please please contact us.

Next licensing step
We can now finally prepare the 2.5 release and we really hope that we are a part of the Debian world from that release on. We would reach a lot more users with that and hopefully would also get some new contributors.
Stay tuned for the monthly that is hopefully going to be posted soon.
