Idea For A New Xcom Installment
Posted 04 December 2003 - 03:33 PM
Basically i think we should give the aliens a break, you know while they build a mass army etc etc. Well in my plot the aliens launch missile thingys at earths off world colonies, these missiles release a cloud of parasitic (is that a word?) spores which secretly breed in the populations over a period of time, then these parasite thingys start spreading and infesting without anyone knowing and start mind controlling the population. they of course riot and kick the government's, megapols and marsec's b hinds. Not many people are left after suprise riots except XCOM (of course) and a few gangs, researchers, elurium mines etc. XCOM must wage war against their own kind in order to save mankind as they research sthe ever evolving spores that are mutating the population. and voila a kick arse new concept for a story, a more sinister blood curdling x com.

I would think the best way of going about this is to have ten worlds all infected with the parasite thingys, the group of survivors (including you the commander) flee to a manufacturing base (hidden) and transform it into a military complex, they must fend of as many zombified guys as possible once almost all the planet has been mopped up re enforcment will arrive bringing the game to a new level.
A cool cutscene will follow, Rioting guys being blasted by a battle ship and then you have the chance to proceed to the next world via a transport. i have many more ideas and i will be putting them forward to the guys in charge.
one prob who are the guys in charge?
