Apparently we’re doing more movie-themed days than I knew about, because today is 4/26 and that means it’s “Alien(s) Day” because in Aliens the planet is LV-426. Okay, with that out of the way, there’s a big Alien(s) Day sale on Steam and Alien: Isolation is a shocking 95% off, or $2/£1.50/CDN$2.20/AUS$2.20/1,85€/235₸/₹ 42 or whatever your currency of choice—it's 95% off in them all. Alien: Isolation, in case you’ve been living under a rock or are unaware of one of the best horror games on PC (opens in new tab) is Creative Assembly’s 2014 game where you scream a lot and run from a scary chitinous space horror. It’s renowned for the clever AI of its Alien enemy and the brilliance of its level design. Other games are on sale, too, like Aliens: Colonial Marines and Aliens vs. Predator (2010), and the second of those is a decent game you might like though by all reports Colonial Marines is still a bit trashy.

We loved Isolation on release, thus the breathlessly excited tone of this news post. “Isolation is a taut, confident, and electrifying horror game that perfectly captures the essence of Ridley Scott's legendary film,” we said at the time (opens in new tab). (What a sentence!) And, to be honest with you, I don’t think a game has come close to recapturing what made Alien: Isolation special since. 

You can find Alien: Isolation on Steam (opens in new tab), and you can see the full Alien(s) Day Steam sale here. (opens in new tab)
