The Horror Honeys: Gamer Honey's Horror Game Trailer of the Week!

Gamer Honey's Horror Game Trailer of the Week!

Sci-Fi, specifically anything in space, has always been a genre of horror that was always able to get to me. Nothing sends me into an agoraphobic induced panic attack faster than thinking about floating, alone, in that vast emptiness. However, isn't that why we enjoy horror? Getting our psychological jimmies rustled has always been a fun past-time. They say: “In space, no one can hear you scream.” Well that's just fine-and-fucking-dandy but my neighbor in fact, can.

Dead Space was the last sci-fi game that had me nope-the-fuck out of my gaming chair pretty quickly. I probably spent more time shooting (seemingly dead) monsters on the ground in the hopes they didn't jump scare me, than any other game. Since then we really haven't had too many horror games in space (actually, I can't think of any off the top of my head), but Sega and The Creative Assembly are here to change that.

Alien: Isolation's story takes place 15 years after Ripley's interplanetary travel with face suckers and acid bleeding babies. You play as Amanda, Ripley's daughter (who knew she had human ones!) who is on a mission to learn the truth behind her mother's disappearance. The Creative Assembly has said that Alien: Isolation will be more about surviving, rather than a shooter, in which the player must scavenge for supplies and improvise during fights.

Gamer Honey Verdict: The Creative Assembly recently mentioned that 20th Century Fox released three terabytes of behind the scenes information to help recreate the style and feel of this '70s classic. They say they're working diligently to keep the general look and feel the movies created, and after watching all the trailers and gameplay videos, I'm generally pretty stoked about this.
