    After what happened with Colonial Marines I'm going to be very VERY sceptical no matter how good the "in-game footage" looks.

    Still, having said that the basic premise of taking the game design ethos of the likes of 'Slender' & 'Amnesia Dark Decent' and turning it into an Alien game is very appealing. It's a wonder no one has ever even attempted something like this before since it seems like such a no-brainer.

    Not sure how I feel about them casting the player as Amy Ripley. I mean we know she'll live to her mid-60s and that she never manages to find her mother, right? I'm not saying you *can't* tell a good story like this, but they're kinda stacking the deck against themselves and all for a little franchise name recognition.

    Not that I'd want to discourage them from using a female protagonist by any means. Given the franchise it's practically a must. Indeed, it's absence in Colonial Marines and the 11th hour inclusion of *any* female marines should have been a huge red flag.
