Anyway, If I had photoshop at home, I would enter the contest, as such though, I won't (unless using mspaint :))

You haven't heard of ufo? It is a game similar to xcom. Except it is like apoc's realtime.

Or maybe real-time - turn-based hybrid, like Altar says? I have no idea what does it mean, though!

It will be realtime, but it will have a pause feature lifted straight off of apoc.
There is more info at ufoaftermath.co.uk (I think I got that right, just let me check.)

Edit: Yes it is ufoaftermath.co.uk

:eek: WTF? They're calling that a hybrid?? I'm gonna shoot myself... :wacko:... I hope there's at least feature of using "Real Time" only (otherwise it is extremly screwed...)... But I'll better check your link before cussing to much. :)

Real time only? Well, I think you can turn off the pause triggers, like in apoc.

You can customize the combat system a lot. You can choose what is going to activate the pause feature, like spotting aliens and so on. Haven't played it myself yet though, will give a better report once I have.

As for release dates, they are:

Poland: Two days ago
Germany: Today
UK: Tomorrow (3rd)
US: Noting sure yet, but everything is pointing towards the 13th...
Norway/Sweden: Not sure, but looks like 10th
France: 25th (due to localization trouble)

Can't remember others at the moment...
