    Question Any chance of [a race of black, humanoid crab like aliens] in the game?

    Thank you for making, what looks like from the screenshots I've seen, a great strategy game in spirit of "X-Com: UFO Defense".

    Is there any current plan to include an alien race that behaves and perhaps looks similar to the Chryssalid or Tentaculat races in the X-Com series? They really brought a sense of terror to the "UFO Defense" and "Terror from the Deep".

    I just played a game of "UFO Defense" the other day where I got cocky and lost 6 soldiers to Chryssalids!

    I think I'm a bit too sensitive but I missed "crab" in the title first time I read it and thought "WTF?!?"

    LOL, Gorlom. No worries - no 'cism intended.

    A scary Chryssalid-like type of alien is planned but we don't know if they'll have the same mechanics or not.

    Not really, it's supposed to be a bit of a surprise I think. Maybe they'll show up in the beta.

    Exciting news for sure!

    Is there a date set for the beta? I guess we won't know if any of our troopers are going to be "feeling zombiefied" until then.

    Nope no date set. beta comes when its ready. The project isnt a dedicated closeknit team. Half of the programmers are working part time and not living anywhere near each other, so I think it will be hard to set any dates.

    I'm sure it will be worth any wait. I'm going to pre-order the game next paycheck.

    Yup, there is a Chryssalid-type alien in the game (initially I had no idea what your thread title was about, but it's clearer now). It can still zombify people but has an additional ability that is as yet unannounced.
