I can finally announce one of my upcoming media tie-in projects, which was just announced at @DragonCon.
Coming in January 2019 from @TitanBooks:
Amanda Ripley vs. Xenomorphs.

Being a low self-esteemed and nervous person myself, I’ve always considered it safe to stay away from horror games. However, there were some exceptions. Of a very few horror games that I’ve played, Alien Isolation ranks third. Of course, I wasn’t able to finish the game, because, you know… but it was a chilling experience.
Alien Isolation is based on the first movie, where you have limited weapons and no abilities to finish off the Xenomorph. You’re bound to distract the creature, craft distractors and keep yourself alive throughout the game. This was one of the best features of the game. FYI, I left the game just after an hour of gameplay.
