Remember those concept and box art images of Sega and Creative Assemly's Alien: Isolation game? Well now we have some screeshots to go with them and oh boy does this look like it's on track to be a lot better than Aliens: Colonial Marines.

That's not saying much, so let me frank, this game has CRT monitors. That's a giant selling point for this game. Why? Because that's the tech that was used in the original Alien movie. Alien was released in 1979, so a game based around the Alien franchise, especially one that takes place not too long after the original film, should have faithful technology, which these screens have in abundance.


There's also a distinct lack of xenomorphs too, not one in fact. In all the screenshots there's not a single alien present and that's a good thing. Alien should be the equivalent of Amnesia in space. Aliens: Colonial Marines made much more sense to try and emulate something like Left 4 Dead, because the sequel was an action movie, but the original film was survival horror at its finest.
So let's count off. We've got: low-tech sci-fi, no aliens to be seen (yet), the traditional motion tracker and a distinct lack of aliasing which is nice to see.

Let's not get out hopes up yet, but I'm starting to get quietly excited by this one. I'm a big Alien fan and this gets the thumbs up from me. So far..

Head over to MegaGames to see more screenshots.
