It's here, a gameplay trailer for Alien: Blackout.

I don't know what I was expecting, but definitely not this. 

And it's coming to... 

Bloody mobile devices on January 24th...

Looks to be set on the Nostromo?

Not a massive Fan of Such idea as it goes against Canon as far as the Destruction of the Nostromo as shown in ALIEN

But as far as a Game i think it could be something interesting to play, if we consider it a Alternative as in WHAT if MUTHUR prevented the Destruction of the Nostromo.

It stars Amanda Ripley, and by the looks of the gameplay trailer, it reminds me of FNAF games (and I'm sick of those games).

If it's like The Walking Dead point-and-click survival game I won't be too upset, as long as it has a good plot and dynamics like said game. That game was a heavy plot-driven situational drama however, not sure how it was work as a stealth-action game.

ps. that is a really unflattering image of Amanda Ripley in the promo pic

I wonder if it started out as a AAA game but the budget was cut down to 99.8%.....

and this is what we got.

I mean I get that devs downgrade games and all but come on, this is taking it too far. 

...

BTW I’m totally not butthurt about this “game” reveal. No way. Nope. 

*while walking away*

Me butt hurt? HA! Riiiiight

*slams furniture*

Nuh-uh.

Maybe start with a short little game to see what kind of interest might be out there for a AAA title? FNAF with Alien paint- I could get into that.

Is "Alien: Resistance" still in the works as the sequel to Isolation then too?

Does this mini-game bridge those at all I wonder?

For some reason, I had to make this.

I'm not really interested in the game, considering it looks like an FNAF clone. I mostly play on PC and Ps3.

One of the reasons why people don't seem to respect mobile games is because of what hypocritical game companies implement in them. Most of the mobile games are just money milking machines disguised as games. 

A little example is Diablo immortal back when the game was announced. 

I'll just wait for the Alien game that's being developed by Cold Iron studios.

According to John Austin, the game's mechanic was inspired by one scene from Alien: Covenant. 

"You know that part with David closing all the doors to funnel the alien through? I thought: this would be an extremely fun mechanic."

Fascinating... nice find Nebula, thanks for posting! I'll give this game a try but I'm still unimpressed that it's an exclusively mobile title.
