After the successful Alien game developed for Argus Press, it seemed inevitable that the same company could have developed the sequel.
Sure enough, developer of the original game, Paul Clansey confirmed that he had started an outline design of Aliens for Argus Press, as they already had a relationship with 20th Century Fox via the original game.
Paul was provided with an early draft of the script (typewritten by James Cameron himself, with his own humorous commentary included – according to Paul).
Sadly, Paul’s version was never to get started in terms of code – as Electric Dreams/Activision snuck in and got the licence from under Argus Press’ noses.
So there is nothing to find of this movie licence, but maybe some day something of Paul’s original design proposal could surface. Stranger things have happened!
