The terror of Alien is brought to life in Alien Blackout. Try to stay alive while trapped aboard a crippled Weyland-Yutani space station carrying a deadly Xenomorph as it tirelessly hunts you and the crew. Outsmart the perfect hunter by making perilous choices. Players must rely on the damaged controls of the space station or risk sacrificing crew members to avoid deadly contact, permanently altering the outcome of the game. Survive seven fear-inducing levels by remotely guiding Amanda Ripley’s crew through increasingly challenging tasks using only the station’s emergency systems. The uncertainty and unpredictability of both the alien and her crew can impose total defeat for Amanda and the entire station. Alien Blackout is a unique fear-inducing horror mobile game experience that will test the inner nerves of both Alien and horror fans alike, where life can end in an instant. App Store: US$4.99
There’s a cool new game coming to the Mac on October 24th called Observer. Above and beyond the obviously superior name, Observer looks great. It’s a cyberpunk horror game with a killer description. From Aspyr: “The year is 2084. You are Daniel Lazarski, an elite neural detective known as an Observer, whose purpose is to hack and invade suspects’ minds. To gather evidence, you must relive their darkest fears, and, finally, face your own.” Sign me up! The trailer looks terrific (some may find it dark). Pricing hasn’t yet been announced, but the game will be released on Steam for Mac and Linux, according to MacGamerHQ. Aspyr usually releases its Mac titles on the Mac App Store, too, but a MAS version hasn’t yet been specified.
