Creative Assembly is continuing its series of insightful dev diaries about Alien Isolation. This time they're looking at the casting and motion capture process for the game's characters. It's cool that they hired and mocapped the actors instead of just using their voices, but I would've liked some interviews with the cast about the acting process on the game. I'm interesting as to how they worked together, considering Ridley Scott actually sowed unease and hostility among the original film's cast, to make them look stressed out and on edge.
Do you think this new cast will be as memorable as Tom Skeritt, Yaphet Kotto, Harry Dean Stanton, Veronica Cartwright, Ian Holm and of course, Sigourney Weaver?

Falling apart and barely operational, the station has a dwindling population that scavenges resources from the little that remains, doing what it can to survive each other and the ever present deadly threat of the Alien.
