Welp, Blakout's a mobile game. So much for that.

I guess there's a bit of comfort in knowing that this isn't Cold Iron's game at least, so there's still a game being worked on out there at least.

If it's free on Google Play, I'm excited, because that's all I have access to right now.

Ah geez...
At least we still have the Cold Iron one.

Well, yikes ain't that a disappointment. I like the idea, but it seems to be a Five nights at Freddies clone, just repackaged as an alien game. Dammit, I can guarantee you have to pay for the game too. They took down AVP Evolution and Predators and release this? Ew.

Well that's a bit of a disappointment.

I'm willing to give it a shot, but... the pitch doesn't sound promising...

Bummer.

Well, hopefully that shooter will turn out good.

Mobile games are dead, at least to gamers.  Can't believe they are wasting time energy with this.

I suggested this premise years ago as a DLC for Alien: Isolation - just with multiplayer instead of the team being AI driven. Interested to see how it plays, certainly seems to be re-using a lot of assets from Isolation.

EDIT: This doesn't mean I'm ok with the sequel to Isolation being a mobile game, however. It's a neat idea but why does it need to be played as Amanda Ripley? There seems to be very little story so I don't get why you would waste a character from a game that fans are asking for a sequel of, especially knowing what backlash any marketing campaign would get for that. I'll play it out of love for the franchise, but am still looking towards the Cold Iron game as the next "true" entry into the Alien game series.

Damn it, not playing on mobile. When it comes to expenditure/profit possibly a good decision. Guess i got to lower my expectations for future game announcements, mobile platform seems to be an increasing threat :D

Why though?
Might be fun, lets see how this turns out. Still, I'm sad that it's not anything more grand.

Makes total sense! Because when you want a captivating and immersive experience, why not go with a tiny screen with tiny speakers?

Is it too late to get that option with Kane's actual son that someone mentioned in the previous thread? I was genuinely excited for a follow-up to Alien Isolation...never would have thought it would be a mobile game. Very disappointing.

Well damn. So unless you sell your ovaries or nuts for a good "Gaming" phone... You're gonna be either A: Stuck with a phone emulator on the PC which will be clunky as hell to play, or B: One of many who will be stuck waiting for a proper frackin Alien/Aliens game >.<. 


Why do good things have to be butchered.?...
