Happy Anniversary, ALIEN: Isolation!

<INTERFACE 2037 READY FOR INQUIRY>

 

Friday, June 22, 1979: ALIEN was released (USA). Tuesday. October 7, 2014: ALIEN: Isolation is released. Though 35 years may separate the two, yet they share the same heart and soul…

 

For making this game so memorable, thanks to:

  • All the wonderful folks at Creative Assembly, for the blood, sweat, and tears it took to pull this off so well that the game is still lauded four years after its release.
  • Sega for publishing the game.
  • Alistair Hope (director).
  • Jonathan Court and Oli Smith (producers).
  • Gary Napper, and Clive Lindop (designers).
  • Clive Gratton (programmer).
  • Jude Bond (artist).
  • Dan Abnett, Dion Lay, and Will Porter (writers).
  • Christian Henson, Joe Henson, and Alexis Smith (composers).
