Alien: Isolation has one claw firmly stuck in 1979

Alien: Isolation lo-fi

There sure have been a lot of these Alien: Isolation dev diaries. Undoubtedly a good thing though, creating transparency that Colonial Marines utterly lacked. This new one continues the theme of authenticity that’s obviously key to the approach Creative Assembly have taken - making the sci-fi elements feel like they were designed in the ‘70s. 

“This isn’t a world of holograms and touchscreens; there’s no sense here that technology is going to save you,” said creative lead Alistair Hope. It certainly looks a lot like Ridley Scott’s original vision. Big ol’ CRT monitors, distortion on screens, thick analog buttons - it’s all been designed with what the original filmmakers had access to 30 odd years ago in mind.

It remains to be seen if this authenticity translates into good design.

It does give it a unique look compared to your neon-soaked, blue LED style Sci-fi games. And this game is about atmosphere from what I've read so having a style like this should hopefully add to it
