VIDEO GAME TIE IN: The Art of Alien Isolation - Andy McVittie

Release Date: 07/10/15


The Art of Alien Isolation is a high-end art book featuring over 300 images from the latest game in the critically and commercially acclaimed Alien franchise. Taking players back to the survival horror atmosphere of the first film, Alien Isolation features Amanda Ripley as the hero trying to survive on a wrecked space station. This book is the ultimate gallery of the game, a must-have for any fan.


In recent years gamers tend to have a lot of splatterfests and whilst this can be a lot of fun, one of the tings that seems to have slipped by is the concept that things are scarier when you don’t see them. Take Jaws or Evil Dead for example, not seeing what is causing the fear, allowed your imagination to run rampant and scare the hell out of you.

What this book does is bring the dark and eerie space to creep in and chill you to the marrow, the artworks dark area’s atmospheric really help build the atmosphere and whilst many people tend to overlook some of the details from concept art right through to finished product all round gives you the chance to see how such things are put together. All round a cracking book and one that I’ll be looking at quite a few times.
