IIapagokc has released a brand new gameplay trailer for a new fan Alien game, Alien: Hope for the Future. And, ironically, this unofficial fan Alien game feels way better and more faithful to the movies than the official games.
Alien: Hope for the future is an Immersive sim project with elements of survival-horror and tactics. This isn’t a commercial game, meaning that it will be distributed for free to everyone once it’s complete.
The story of the game takes place in “Hadly’s Hope” colony , before and during the xenomorph incident. Therefore, players will assume the role of one of the colonists. Players will have to survive by finding some supplies for them and other colonists. Players will also be able to avoid or fight xenomorphs.
What’s really interesting here is how faithful to the second Alien movie this game actually is. I mean, take a look at the trailer. While it’s not that polished – keep in mind that it is an indie game – it features most of the iconic scenes from Cameron’s movie. Hell, it even has the hologram “Earth/nature” room.
Not only that, but players will be able to seal doors like Vasquez did and control the Power Loader like Ripley did. The game will also feature the iconic Motion Tracker (you know, the one that the marines had in Aliens).
Seriously, for an indie attempt, this Alien game looks absolutely amazing. Unfortunately, Disney may shut down this project now that it got the media’s attention. On the other hand, there are rumours suggesting that Disney is about to sell FoxNext, so things may turn favourably for this indie studio.
But anyway, enjoy the following trailer and stay tuned for more!
