Canceled four years ago, Aliens: Crucible was supposed to be an Aliens role-playing game, which always struck me as kind of weird. The film didn't seem like it would translate well to an RPG; hell, it didn't translate well to a shooter. Hey-oooooo ...

But material from Obsidian's development of the game, which ended in 2009, continues to spill out in dribs and drabs. Obsidian CEO Feargus Urquhart said his team had done a lot of work on the concept before Sega abruptly canceled it. These are some animations by Danny Garnett, a character animator at the time. He uploaded the video a month ago and only recently set it to public.

Are class-based xenomorphs more appealing if they're supposed to go into a role-playing game? Guess we'll never find out.
