Creative Assembly released a new developer diary for their upcoming first-person survival horror, Alien: Isolation, dubbed “Lo-fi Sci-fi”.
“To stay faithful to the original source, Alien: Isolation takes a retro look to the future with a design aesthetic which developer Creative Assembly describes as lo-fisci-fi.
It’s clunky, it’s chunky, it’s push-button and analogue. There are no phasers or lasers, and the smartest weapons you find may be tied together with duct tape and string.
A world very much of CRT not LCD, Alien: Isolation may be set in the future but it’s very much baked in the past.”
“Discover the true meaning of fear in Alien: Isolation, a survival horror set in an atmosphere of constant dread and mortal danger.
Fifteen years after the events of Alien™, Ellen Ripley’s daughter, Amanda enters a desperate battle for survival, on a mission to unravel the truth behind her mother’s disappearance.
As Amanda, you will navigate through an increasingly volatile world as you find yourself confronted on all sides by a panicked, desperate population and an unpredictable, ruthless Alien.
Underpowered and underprepared, you must scavenge resources, improvise solutions and use your wits, not just to succeed in your mission, but to simply stay alive.”
Alien: Isolation is due for release in late 2014 on PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC.
