Did you know Alien: Isolation was originally going to be a 3rd person game like survival horror games of yore? It’s true, at a postmortem at GDC 2015, Creative Assembly’s Alistair Hope talked about the game’s life back when it was 3rd person.
You can even check out footage of the 3rd person version below! While it’s interesting, I’m glad the game switched to the first person perspective. The presentation in the final game just worked so well in that perspective.
