My dad collects old video games. He just recently handed down a very old box of INFOCOM text adventure games (which I was delighted to play for countless hours).

When I was done obsessing over the intricacies of the labyrinth of Zork, I noticed a small catalog of Activision titles to be released in 1993 among which was the drool-inducing "Alien vs Predator:Nightmare on Ryushi" (and yes it is Alien, not Aliens).

It appears to be a point and click first person adventure title for MS-DOS with excellent graphics. It also looks like the first AvP game to allow the user to play as all three species in independent campaigns!!

After an intense an stressful search of the InterWebs, I came up with absolutely no trace of this game ever having existed!! It is even absent from AvPGalaxy's list of cancelled titles!

If anyone has any info on this lost treasure, any at all, I would really love to know about it.

(I scanned the catalog, but I am new to this forum and can't figure out how to post the pic. Help?)

You need to host the pic at a page like Photobucket.

Then, you take the URL with image tags (the ones that look like [img] with the other on on the other side that includes a / before the 'img' part. I can't show you, because if I close the tag, it makes said tags invisible.) and put it in a post.

That sounds really interesting. I wonder how that game became so lost?

I am intrigued, and slightly libidinous.

No one wants to play this more then I do! I've been searching relentlessly!!

Here is the advertisement as it was in the Activision catalog:

Sounds really cool, even if I have no idea what a MS DOS is.

MS-DOS is an early microsoft operating system. Every great franchise has its roots in DOS.
 :)

Hardcore fans might note that the original comics center around a human colony on Ryushi. This might be the most canon accurate game in the series. I don't know about you, but that really excites me!!
