The Bureau: XCOM Declassified

The year is 1962 and the US is under attack. The government has been gearing up for this, expecting the Russians to break the tentative peace of the Cold War at any moment… but this attack isn’t from the Russians. It isn’t even from Earth.

The Bureau: XCOM Declassified is the story of how a top secret agency, dedicated to defending Earth from alien invasion, came into being. William Carter, a disgraced CIA operative who gets caught up in the fight, is the main character of the game.

I was responsible for most of the base visits, two main missions/levels (including all the variants of the final level), and most of the in-game UI text.

This is a base visit from fairly early in the game.


…and here’s a walkthrough of one of my side missions. I love writing Percy; he’s such an ass.

Here’s the game trailer:
