or famine. And there are things lurking in the shadows of every
asteroid—things strange and different and deadly.

of player characters over many game sessions, letting you explore the
ALIEN universe freely, sandbox style.
The rules of the game are based on the acclaimed Year Zero Engine, used
in award-winning games such as Tales from the Loop and Mutant: Year
Zero, but adapted and further developed to fully support and enhance the
core themes of ALIEN: horror and action in the cold darkness of space.
