Yes, I believe it was Microprose. Your squaddies have a list of 10 or so attributes, such as marksmanship, which increase through use and training, just like the original. You equip them with weapons, armor and gear…and can even rename them as you like. You loot alien technoloy and corpses for research and manufacture. You equip your jets that shoot down the UFOs, and even choose where your squaddies sit on them, and vehicles for battle at the crash sites. You build bases and the facilities inside. All very much like the original. One could argue it is too much of a carbon copy of he original, but this is a plus in my eyes.
