With most of the team that developed Alien: Isolation reportedly no longer working for British developer Creative Assembly and with sales of the game disappointing SEGA, despite the overwhelmingly high praise, the likelihood of a sequel to the game that made us fear the Alien again would seem highly unlikely. Yet, with a new dedicated team could Creative Assembly not take what made Alien Isolation good, change what was criticized and develop a sequel bigger and better in all aspects than the original. Of course, anything is possible, and in what is admittedly a bit of 'shameless self-promotion' I would like to bring to Scified's Alien and gamer fans attention a new venture of my own - Snorkelbottoms Gaming Blog.
In one of the articles for SBG, I propose a sequel to Creative Assembly's game called Aliens: Isolation, set on LV-426 in between the Jorden family's discovery of the Derelict and the arrival of the Colonial Marines to the planetoid, depicting the gradual but inevitable subjugation of the colony Hadley's Hope, from the 1986 James Cameron sequel Aliens.
An avid gamer, and somewhat overly creative I have started this blog to showcase my video game ideas and offer my opinions in gamer related rants. There is no need to worry I will not be leaving Scified anytime soon, this is simply just a side venture, but as with my proposal for Aliens: Isolation I may promote it from time-to-time if its content and Scified's align. The eagle eyed of you may also notice that the blue hue on SBG is the same as used on Scified, and together with the orange is a reference to the Yogscast (and co-founders Simon Lane's love for Jaffa Cakes), another great love of mine.
