Alien games feature UFO and extraterrestrial, usually hostile life. It is
the essence of the unknown that drove the game developers to portray aliens and outer space
colonization, starting from the classic space invaders to more sophisticated alien strategy
and alien shooting games.
Many alien video games and other media franchises were inspired by the movie Alien directed by Ridley Scott and released in 1979. The movie revolves around the commercial spacecraft Nostromo and seven crewmen are on their way to Earth. After been alerted by the the ship's computer, the crew lands on a nearby planetoid, discovering a signal from a derelict alien spacecraft. Their investigation turns into a gruesome depiction of an extraterrestrial with parasitic and lurking capabilities - receiving praise from the critics and achieving box office success.
Based on this view, aliens have been portrayed as more or less hostile and aggressive creatures that fall in line with zombies, monsters and other demonic entities. This view has been confirmed by many subsequent media releases including the classic Space Invaders game, Predator and Alien vs Predator science fiction, action horror films.
