In space, no one can hear you scream. This was the tagline for the 1979 film Alien, and it set the tone for what audiences could expect.

Alien RPG is a heart-pounding, anxiety-inducing, fast-paced group meant to place you and your group in the world of Alien.

Led by the Game Mother (or “Game Master” in other RPGs), you and your group will step into the boots of spacefaring adventurers, facing the ultimate horror: the Xenomorphs. But Xenomorphs are not the only entity you will have to face. For this group, you could come face-to-face with corrupt government agencies, angry colonists, alien entities never seen before, face huggers, and more.

Danger lurks around every corner and the unknown is your constant companion. You will have to overcome your anxiety to survive.

Throughout the game, you'll face a series of challenges, from combat with Xenomorphs to navigating treacherous environments to unraveling the mysteries of the cosmos. You'll roll the dice to see if your actions succeed or fail, but even the best-laid plans can go awry in the face of true terror.

But "Alien RPG" isn't just about survival horror. It's also about storytelling. You'll roleplay your characters, making tough decisions, forging alliances, and confronting your deepest fears. And as the tension mounts and the stakes get higher, you'll discover just what you're willing to do to stay alive.

So, whether you're exploring the ruins of an ancient alien civilization, battling Xenomorphs in the depths of space, or racing against time to stop a deadly outbreak, "Alien RPG" is a pulse-pounding adventure that will keep you on the edge of your seat until the very end.

Are you ready to face the unknown?
