“The game focuses on the emulation and assimilation properties of the Alien, hiding its identity under a veil of fake humanity. The Alien’s true objective is to escape from the base, choosing to hide himself collaborating with humans in order to escape along with them, or revealing his true nature, playing as a monster to assimilate all the team members.On the opposite, the humans must try to survive, maintaining the outpost 31, choosing the best way to escape between the helicopter, the snow cat or the rescue team but, more important, to test the team member to reveal the Alien.The road to victory is truly hard, but not impossible. Be careful though! The paranoia of not knowing who you REALLY have on your side may cloud your decisions! “
