IGN notes that RES specializes in creating innovative content by using existing materials, while DV has plenty of experience adapting projects with the technical complexity.
“We instantly focused on the cutscenes in the Alien: Isolation video game coupled with the hugely popular story of Amanda Ripley as the perfect opportunity to create something new for fans,” Smith told IGN. “We presented the idea for this first-of-its-kind project to Fox who were instantly receptive. With the 40th Anniversary of Alien approaching, they were especially interested in a project that was created by passionate fans.”
