    I suppose one way of doing it would be to raise the price on steam to $25, then offer a 20% pre-order discount.

    That might psychologically work to attract some buyers on the fence. :) Same offer,...

    What could be interesting is to have a series of these "filters" for maps chosen at random: Sunny, cloudy, dusty, clear, etc. It'd give some subtle variation to the same tiles. :)

    It'd be cool if...

    I've mentioned this a few times in the past - but I think the game would be stronger to NOT have ranged stuns until mid-late game (electroshock grenade). Make stunning aliens seem personal and risky...

    I think it'd be useful in the dropship screen, or soldier screen if it shows role icons in the new UI - it helps you see the composition of a squad at a glance. For the individual soldier screen it...
