‘Alien: Isolation’ – 21 to 22 December

Alien: Isolation, which was developed by Creative Assembly and published by SEGA. back in October 2014, is a survival horror video game which won the BAFTA Games Award for Audio Achievement.

The developers invite you to discover “the true meaning of fear” in Alien: Isolation. The game is set in an “atmosphere of constant dread and mortal danger”. Don’t say we didn’t warn you.

The tagline is “how will you survive?” and we learn that Ellen Ripley promised her daughter when she left Earth that she would return home to celebrate her 11th birthday. Unfortunately, she never made it.

No fifteen years later, Amanda Ripley learns that the flight recorder from her mother’s ship has been recovered. Amanda enters Sevastopol space station to finally solve the mystery of her mother’s disappearance.

There she is confronted by an unknown menace. From here, you need to “engage in a terrifying quest for survival as you navigate the labyrinthine Sevastopol station”.

Unprepared and underequipped, you will need all your wits and daring to get out alive.
