@CELS I had to YouTube some chryssalids just to remind myself of the animation. Considering the graphics aren't the best part of the game (although they are atmospheric in their own way), that bounce is a nice little touch!

@Wakimojo: I see what you did there. My X-COM squad was definitely pro choice.

@Trigonomicon: Really? I had not expected that the younger generations of gamers would find the new chryssalids scary, because the graphics are so cartoony. I'm actually happy to hear that.

Thanks, dear Chryssalid zombies!

@SeDiceBisonte: Yeah, that autopsy is kind of disappointing. The scariest thing in all of video games is when the battlescape (forgot that was even a word, but I love it) Chryssalid emerges from its host, dripping wet, and its antennae have that gelatinous bounce. Then the dead smile is actually kind of terrifying.

Very nice environment and strong composition!

Very cool poster and alien.

I may be too baby for the 90's x-com, but I know that fear all too well anyway.

Oh dear, it's going to be another squad wipe...

This looks great and it makes the slightly goofy, off-brand xenomorph from the chryssalid autopsy look as terrifying as its battlescape equivalent. Love the preview animation too!
