''Xenonauts'' is a TurnBasedTactics game where you command the eponymous organisation, sending interceptors and strike teams out to fight the alien menace while researching their technology in an attempt to become strong enough to take the fight to them. It is a FanRemake of ''VideoGame/{{X-COM}}'' by indie developer Goldhawk Interactive, mostly faithful to the original but with some improved mechanics like cover, suppression and a fully playable air combat system. Its homepage can be found [[http://www.xenonauts.com/ here]] and was up for preorder; preorderers got to test the game as it undergoes development. A {{Kickstarter}} campaign to raise money to add new features [[http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/69341191/xenonauts?ref=live finished on June 10, 2012]]. It [[http://www.goldhawkinteractive.com/forums/showthread.php/4377-Build-V18-%28Beta-Candidate%29-released%21 officially went beta on April 4th, 2013.]] On June 1st, 2013 it was added to Steam's Early Access catalog.

* FromBadToWorse: In the beginning of the campaign, the aliens will usually stick to small scouts acting in the background, leaving ominous crop circles and abducting ship crews out on the seas. At some point though, they begin taking on local forces, winning dogfights and shooting down military transports. Becoming more bold, they continue making brutal assaults, bombarding fishing fleets, shooting at highways, strafing battleships, blowing up bridges, attacking oil rigs and sinking whole cruise liners, racking up casualties in the ''hundreds'' every time. It gets worse from there too, as the aliens decide to bring terror to the cities...

* WouldNotShootACivilian: Absolutely averted by both sides. The aliens love hunting civilian humans, and Xenonauts treat alien non-combatants (or more accurately, alien crew members) like alien soldiers.

* WouldNotShootACivilian: Absolutely averted by both sides. The aliens love hunting civilian humans, and Xenonauts treat alien non-combatants (or more accurately, alien crew members) like alien soldiers. Justified for the Xenonauts however, since said non-combatants will open fire with alien pistols or other low-level weapons the first chance they can.
