The discussion of the Alien series of films and the props used in them is the aim, but if it's got Big Bugs and Big Guns, then they are welcome too!

I've just found out about an Alien RPG that was released in 2019 by a company called Free League Publishing. There is a core rulebook and a number of supporting products. Does anyone know anything about this? Is it any good, or does the rulebook have content worth getting as source material?

Production values are quite good. I haven't gotten to play it, but from what I understand the mechanics are quite good. Lots of actual play videos on YouTube. The rulebook itself is quite attractive, with extremely evocative artwork, which really sets the mood. Background info is interesting. They have managed to fit all kinds of stuff from all the movies and the EU into it. It seems clear to me it was made by fans of the franchise in all forms. I'd say the main rulebook at least is definitely worth the purchase.

They're about to drop a new Cinematic scenario called Destroyer of Worlds that has all the characters as Colonial Marines.
