Juho Kuorikoski, Niko Nirvi (Foreword)
Released in 1994, UFO: Enemy Unknown is often considered among the world's best computer games. The strategy and tactics game created by Julian and Nick Gollop is a timeless classic, the Citizen Kane of bit entertainment.
UFO: Enemy Unknown (XCOM: UFO Defense) was the birth of the X-COM game series and the culmination of design work that began in the early 1980s. Although the masterpiece by the Gollop brothers has had both official and unofficial heirs over the decades, the progenitor remains unsurpassed.
"X-COM – Computer Game Classics" tells the story of how UFO: Enemy Unknown came to be, how the game series that followed slept away and eventually returned to the limelight. This game journalism-based non-fiction book, built on extensive interview material, is not only a historical account of this legendary game series but also an exploration of the narrative structures in digital games.
