Back in October, we informed you about a new Aliens indie fan game, Alien: Hope for the Future. And today, we are happy to report that a new gameplay trailer has been released. This trailer will give you a glimpse at what this indie game aims to achieve, so be sure to watch it.
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.
This new gameplay trailer has a lot of Alien: Isolation vibes. According to its creator, players will be able to fight the xenomorphs so the game will not be as “defenseless” as Creative Assembly’s title. On the other hand, there are a lot of aliasing and framerate issues in this latest trailer. I’m pretty sure that these are mainly due to the hardware that its creator used to capture the footage, and that they do not represent the performance of the game on high-end hardware.
But anyway, Alien: Hope for the Future looks really cool. While it does not have the budget of a triple-A title, it certainly has a lot of passion and heart. Therefore, we hope that SEGA and Disney will not send IIapagokc a C&D letter.
