Alien Isolation About 15 Hours

There's an Angry Interview on YouTube where a surprisingly cheerful Angry Joe interviews likewise sanguine Gary Napper about Alien Isolation, Creative Assembly's upcoming survival/horror game based on the hit-and-miss movie series (thanks CVG). Along the way, Gary discusses how long we should expect the game to run:
The game's actually about 15 hours long. Because we've got so much to do with the narrative, all the different mechanics of the alien, on top of that we have the other threats about the station, we've got this big long story that folds out. And it's also a bit like a Metroidvania game where you've got a linear story where you go through but you can also go back and explore areas you've been to. So you can go back to areas and find new things, use things you found to explore and open up new areas. So it feels very much like you're unlocking the station it's a real place you can go through. So there's a lot to do in the world.

But the difficult thing is nailing a time because people can play for absolutely ages without even seeing the alien because they're being really careful and being really stealthy: they've done nothing to call him down or there have been no explosions that he has come to investigate. Those people can get through it fairly quickly. Then you have other people (laughs at Joe shouting "speedrunners!"), but because of the systematic AI, there could be humans there, there might not, you could be stuck for quite a while trying to figure out a situation it's very hard to do it.

Yeah, but not if you're a guy.

I wonder if this game will have replayability and mod support.

I wish they did a little better with the lighting, it seems to have that Doom 3 look where everything seems overly shiny or something, a good dose of anti-aliasing would help a lot as well.

Still looking forward to this one quite a bit.

well it's gonna be a true horror game, not a shooter... but i take it from the videos that there is a flame thrower and maybe some melee weapons. and also there's not just the Alien, as there's that crazy android and also "aggressive humans".

They factored in the additional time spent with the player only taking three steps an hour to get by the super creepy stuff.

The game is really just one hallways with air vents and a box blocking your way.

like I said, this game is going to be a Cat and Mouse game. From the review I read, it even sounded that way. Not really my kind of game.

ACM is still bad. No if and or buts. A story written by a 12 year-old fan fiction writer. It has no soul. Wooden voice acting. And characters you don't care about. Terrible alien AI (QTE an alien attack, yeh!).

Are you playing the space janitor cleaning up the messes the crew and the alien leave behind?

Try Aliens: Colonial Marines

Been there, done that! It was an okay game as long as you played it Coop. Not as bad as some try to make it out as especially since they implemented a bunch of patches that fixed a lot of the crap they said was supposed to be in the game that’s now there.

I don't consider Creative Assembly a quality developer or Sega a respectful publisher. It's a great premise, but I wouldn't have high expectations for this one.

Man Randy pitchfraud must be so embarrassed colonial fail marines is universally considered garbage :).

This better be good... remaining cautious, but optimistic. If this game plays exactly how my nightmares were when I watched the first Alien movie, then I'm in.

It is nice to see it that long, but me personally. I’m more about action. I just don’t know If I can stand to play the cat and mouse game with an alien trying to kill me and I don’t have any way to kill it until the end of the game. Not sure that’s my kind of game. I’m more about a pulse Rifle in my hands blasting everything in sight.

15 hours is cool by me. I always take longer to finish games then the next guy, like to explore every inch of a level, also I fully expect to sit in a fucking closet for hours on end, afraid to go out and get eaten O:rift is going to be fricking majestic with this game.

Sega struck out twice with the last 2 big releases for this franchise then dropped support almost as quickly as they arrived. Alien Isolation is literally the last chance the license has in their hands. I only see the really hardcore fans buying and spreading word of mouth to the masses. A:CM made it poison.

Yeah I can't disagree with that. I know this will be a long wait and see thing for me despite a lot of enthusiasm about the potential.

As long as you 'play along' and pretend your really there. If you play it like a 'video game' you can probably do it in an hour lol
