Description

Drifting through space, the ship is infested, and one loud footstep can get you killed. In Escape From Aliens In Outer Space, the crew must scramble through winding corridors to their escape pods. Lurking in the darkness, are skulking aliens, eager to devour those trying to flee. Osprey Games have produced a game that is dripping with tension.

In this hidden movement game, each player is armed with a dry wipe map of the ship and marker. Both attacking lifeforms and fleeing crew must track their opponents to complete their goal. Move into a dangerous sector and you might make a noise, drawing the aliens straight to you. If you’re lucky, you might be able to use it to your advantage. You may be able to make the noise appear elsewhere, disorientating your stalker. Alternatively, you might stumble across an item to aid you. Perhaps you’ll find adrenaline to run a little faster or a weapon to fight back?

Asymmetric player powers arm both aliens and humans with unique skills. These include changes in movement or how much noise they make – small changes that can really throw off your opponent’s tracking. With 16 different characters playing across eight different maps, there’s plenty of replayability to be had. For people that want more maps, there are downloadable map packs on the publisher’s website, and a map editor to make your own.
