Title: Isomer
Developer: Ionising
9.99 for PC, Alpha

Isomer is an isometric realtime strategy with sandbox gameplay inspired by classic XCOM and Dwarf Fortress style games. It's open ended, designed to be played in a variety of ways with world exploration, survival, crafting and strategy all blended together in a retro format.

You control alien forces hell-bent on conquering enemy worlds for their resources. How long can you survive? What will you build and discover?

The worlds are procedurally generated, large and teeming with hostile forces, enemy bases, deep catacombs and life. Each play through is unique presenting different challenges and requiring different tactics with an enemy that responds to the way you play.

Full release features:
- Control an alien army hell bent on harvesting enemy worlds for their resources
- Realtime strategy, combat, world exploration and survival mechanics
- Adaptive AI which reacts and changes how the game plays depending on the choices of the player
- Almost unlimited variations of worlds to explore and conquer, no two games are the same
- Mine resources and build walls, buildings and fortifications to defend your ship from the angry inhabitants of the world
- Mutate your units into specialist troops from engineers to the vicious warriors
- Units gain new abilities and improve over time
- Explore dangerous underground caverns and ravines for resources and loot
- Attack and pillage human bases to hinder their war effort
- Destructable terrain with realtime lighting calculation
- Trade with passing supply ships for reinforcements and resources
... much more to come!

What's available to try in the game now:
- World generation and exploration
- Enemy facilities and bases
- Enemy units that think, plan and come looking for a fight
- Resource mining and collection
- Base and world building
- Mutation to enhance abilities and RPG like progression for your troops
- Full sandbox gameplay

I've meant to suggest Isomer since long ago but you beated me to it heh. I've been following it's development for quite a while and the developer on Twitter and the game looks promissing. A big YES coming from me.

Looks interesting, yet imho the xcom comparison is far fetched. This is real time combat isn't it ?

XCOM Apocalypse had a real time mode... Definately not the same, but you had to try it not even if it has just to raid a temple of Sirius or attack aliens with an android dual wielding machine guns popping out brainsuckers :D
