Enter our Alien: Isolation Steam key giveaway

Published On November 19, 2015 | By Kirk Hiner | Macintosh

Here we have our first ever game giveaway on Public Access Gaming, and it’s a good one. Just in time for Black Friday, the fine folks of Feral Interactive were kind enough to supply us with three Steam keys for their recently released survival horror game, Alien: Isolation (a $49.99 value).

The game follows Amanda Ripley—daughter of someone you may recall from the films—as she embarks on a mission to discover just what made her mother disappear fifteen years earlier. And, unfortunately for Amanda, she finds out.

Alien: Isolation

In Alien: Isolation, players will:

  • Outsmart and evade the unpredictable and ferociously intelligent Alien, who uses its heightened senses to hunt you down and respond to your every move.
  • Scavenge for hidden resources, craft items and use the Sevastopol’s battered technology to improvise distractions and defenses to keep you alive.
  • Explore the increasingly volatile Sevastopol, wracked with fear and mistrust, and stalked by a ruthless killer.
  • Immerse themselves in a superbly-realised survival horror game crafted with incredible fidelity to the atmosphere, art direction and production values of the classic 1979 sci-fi film Alien.

Our contest is running for one week only, as we want to award the winners early on Black Friday (either to knock off a gift idea for you, or so you have something to look forward to when you get home from all that shopping.

To enter, first check to see if your Mac is capable of running a game of this caliber, then read our giveaway rules and regulations to make sure you qualify and are cool with our policies. Finally, comment below to let us know which of the Alien movies was your favorite. That’s all it takes. We’ll quit accepting entries at midnight PST on November 26th, and winners will be randomly selected and notified by email the morning of November 27th.

Good luck!

But right now he does, and he loves to talk about them, just as he’s been doing on the web since 1998. He can otherwise be spotted as that one guy in Ohio wearing a Minnesota North Stars hockey sweater. Kirk has a wife and three kids, and is a generally happy fellow.

    The first Alien was clearly the best movie of the franchise (or any movie franchise for that matter) and I’ll fight anyone who says otherwise.

  • rann

    The first Alien move is my favorite, love the atmosphere in the movie.
    Thanks for the chance 🙂

  • Jeff

    The first alien movie, fo sho. More about the story than about the special effects.

  • mark

    By far I loved Aliens. The spin that James Cameron added to the series was amazing.

  • Cheyenne Deckard

    Thats a hard question for me since I have seen every movie and have read all the novels and comics. So my final decision comes down to a tie between Alien and Aliens, but Aliens is the winner because I hold many cherished memories of watching it with my family when I was little even if it scared the crap out of me. Aliens is my final choice mainly because it holds sentimental value to me, and also I just enjoy watching it even if I know almost every line from it.

    Basically comes down to one of the first two movies; first one for sheer horror and suspense and the second for action/horror with a lot of cool lines. But I have to go with the original and best; the first Alien movie will always be the one I love. Sorry, Newt.

  • Christian

    The First Alien Movie was the best!

  • Aidan

    As good as Aliens was Alien was clearly the superior movie (let’s pretend 3 and Resurrection didn’t happen) because although Aliens did a great job of building on the Alien universe, Alien did a better atmospheric job. Alone. In space. With a perfect killing machine after you. Now that’s SPOOKY.

    Tough call; I love the franchise a LOT. Aliens would win out ever so slightly for me right now. I love the sense of constant oppression… the fact that no matter how often you do the right thing, you can be beaten down.

  • Nathan

    I personally found the first movie more interesting than the others

  • Quentin

    Like many others, I liked the first best.

  • Karajan918

    I like the first for its tenebrous quality, strenuous tension, and terse story development. The first I consider a science fiction horror, while the second is purely science fiction, although it is on par with the first in terms of story, and there’s nothing like multiple aliens.

  • Corey

    It’d have to be the first film. There was just a tension about the whole thing that couldn’t be replicated in the subsequent Alien films, or many other science fiction films at all.

  • Kelvin

    Aliens was my favourite. The first film is amazing, but no Hicks.

  • Alex

    Ridley Scott’s vision of Alien is one of the greatest I’ve seen so far. No doubt first Alien is the best one.

  • Alex

    Ridley Scott’s vision of Alien is one of the greatest I’ve seen so far.

  • Andreas

    I’d say that Alien is the better movie… but I still have to give it to Aliens. The movie did such an amazing job at building out the world and it’s what gave the franchise such staying power imho.
