Carlton Books welcomes fans of Alien to experience the franchise’s world like never before with its fully interactive augmented reality book out October 5.
With Alien: Covenant still fresh in the mind, it’s an opportune time to delve deeper into the world created by writers Dan O’Bannon and Ronald Shusett whose script lay the foundations for Ridley Scott’s science-fiction horror classic of 1979. Released by Carlton Books, Alien: Augmented Reality Survival Manual puts fans inside the movies with an intimate look at aliens eggs hatching, the gear used my the military to tackle a xenomorph war, and what really happens when a face-hugger attacks.
Carlton Books teams up with 20th Century Fox to bring the movie to life like never before, taking audiences deeper inside the world of aliens, Ripley and space travel. It has been written from the perspective of a new recruit to the Colonial Marines with a view to preparing fledglings to battle with these fierce creatures.
Presented as an interactive survival manual, the augmented reality animations enhance the experience, bringing the aliens to life, via a smartphone, or tablet. Created by author and Aliens fan Owen Williams, who boasts of indulging his lifelong passion for the Alien movie franchise by interviewing every surviving Colonial Marine from Aliens – including Wierzbowski – the book provides fascinating, fun and interactive material that makes you want to experience the films all over again.
As a new recruit you’ll get to see what life of a USM pilot is like and observe “on the scene” footage of the marines in action, in the form of movie excerpts. Whether it’s the first day of your USM training, or you’re a hardened veteran Alien: Augmented Reality Survival Manual is vital to shore up your knowledge of the Xenomorph threat. In all likelihood, it’ll save your life!
Carlton Books have worked with 20th Century Fox to encapsulate the Alien movie series into a fully interactive augmented reality book and app package, that enables you to study a xenomorph autopsy, witness an alien egg hatch in real-time and see the deadly attacks of a face-hugger first-hand! The books will be available from October 5th, 2017 from www.carltonbooks.co.uk but we’re offering you an advance copy to review! See Media Alert below for more information on the Alien experience!
