I actually kinda assumed they may slightly xeno like. Though not too alien more like a combo between the vanduul from star citizen and the xenos in aliens.

Nope. The aliens are based on primordial protomammals. We are going for scientific accuracy. There's actually a post about them somewhere on the forums...

Interesting choice in aliens. But when you said primordial protomammals I thought these creatures wouldn't be too fearsome. I mean these are creatures from the Permian period - a.k.a "that weird time before there were any dinosaurs which was full of odd animals nobody can pronounce but that are still cool ". I doubt any of those creatures could be a threat to a group of heavily armed colonists. Could you give us some insight on how big, how smart or how fearsome these things are?

When you are living on a knife edge, even a rat can be deadly!

There are several creatures that have high intelligence and will be able to outsmart your colonists, there is also one that is 3-4m tall and will be serious hazard if provoked!

Oh are you talking about that alien that looses its shit when it sees an im bot or a magpie?

Magpie for those of you don't know mentioned in a interview with yours truly is like a protomammal herbivore the size of a man sorta like a raptor.

as much as I love the xenomorph (and I should see a specialist for having typed that sentence) I would love to see what is in store for us!

I am going to actually bring this thread back to life for a second to ask simon roth a question. You see I am going to be making a scifi shooter which is inspired by games and movies which are aliens, alien, system shock 2, maia and a bit more. Its been a dream of mine to actually make a game. I plan to ground the game in real science and etc. The player is a a soldier aboard a large ship on a mission to discover new worlds for human habitation. Anyway not spoiling the story aliens overun the ship. I was looking for some advice on how I could make aliens for my game. I really dont want to make some cliche movie alien. So it be nice if you could give me a few tips on how to do so.
