Dead Space is "Aliens meets Doom", says cartoon creator


Speaking about the recently announced Dead Space animated feature film, Starz Media's Scott Greenberg has added some new detail to the upcoming EA horror, pointing to influences and planets with evil markings, if you imagine that.

"They have a very detailed bible," said Greenberg. "It's basically Alien meets Doom in space. To get there, though, there's a whole mythology they built behind it. In the game there are planets with markings that unleash holy hell. We said, 'Is there a parallel story?' There was some mutual brainstorming. We said it would be really interesting to tell a prequel story. Where the movie ends, the game picks right up."

Head over for more. Dead Space, a game we're actually excited about and honestly not lying, releases for PC, 360 and PS3 on Hallowe'en. Read more about it in our recent chat with executive producer Glen Schofield.
