The Making Of: X-COM Enemy Unknown

Edge Staff: ''Right about the time the first generation of home computers were making their presence felt, tabletop strategy and role-playing was at its zenith. Wargame titles were readily available for the re-enactment of every major conflict in the history of man, while fantasy gaming went far beyond the reach of Dungeons & Dragons to encompass deep space adventures such as Traveller and even literary adaptations based around characters such as Edgar Rice Burroughs’ John Carter of Mars. It was only a matter of time before such gaming found its way onto the computer screen.'' (Amiga, Julian Gollop, PC, X-COM: Enemy Unknown)
