Omg yeah, I remember hunting for them as soon as I saw it beeping I would be moving all quite trying to find where he was then having it turn out he was below you on another floor.

You know I think im going to reinstall that game again and play it

You really need to see them hi-res on the page of the magazine... they look like in-game shots. One is even labled "in-game" so I think they are.

seconded. I loved that game.

was better than both the movies combined.

Even though its highly likely the shots posted are just mock ups, if thats the direction they are going with this game - i'm happy.

Aliens Online was my favorite game even with the modified doom engine they used and buggy code.
And we were like family, best game community I ever was a part of.
The game was offered by GameStorm which hosted other online games for 10 bucs a month it was just so much fun.

We tried to make a mod called AO2 with the AVP engine, but they refused to let out the source code and we couldn't do much.

Here's our mod site, I'm listed under tech support and wrote the history blog about Aliens Online.
Alot of the screenshots are from me that were used for the maps we did manage to do.

I'll post a few links to save you time.
http://www.teamkindred.com/ao2/

I was asked to take certain screenshots they wanted, these are them.
http://www.teamkindred.com/ao2/screenshots/index.htm

I wrote this, you can see my clan tags after my name.
http://www.teamkindred.com/ao2/info/history.htm

In game footage with a song that fits what was something many of us want back, old graphics and all.
http://www.teamkindred.com/aliensonline/aothemesong.htm

And we are still not giving up.

Man, I miss that game and the friends I met..
