Note: we have long provided a monthly update at our website, ufoai.org, but I thought we'd try posting here as well. If this is something the community here wants to see more of, we'll continue to post them on the IndieDB/ModDB/Desura/SlideDB network in the future.

I stopped checking the website once I realized that I could download it on Desura, sorry : P

Monthly updates on the Desura network(with Indie/Mod/Slide DB and Desura) would be great.
