Here’s More Video Of That Aliens Game You Never Got To Play

Canceled four years ago, Aliens: Crucible was supposed to be an Aliens role-playing game, which always struck me as kind of weird. The film didn’t seem like it would translate well to an RPG; hell, it didn’t translate well to a shooter. Hey-oooooo …

But material from Obsidian’s development of the game, which ended in 2009, continues to spill out in dribs and drabs. Obsidian CEO Feargus Urquhart said his team had done a lot of work on the concept before Sega abruptly canceled it. These are some animations by Danny Garnett, a character animator at the time. He uploaded the video a month ago and only recently set it to public.

Are class-based xenomorphs more appealing if they’re supposed to go into a role-playing game? Guess we’ll never find out.
