Alien: USCSS Nostromo board game publisher accused of plagiarism:
Upcoming board game Alien: USCSS Nostromo isn't out yet and it's already in trouble. The survival-horror board game is based on the first film in the Aliens franchise, with the publisher - Wonderdice - gaining the rights from 20th Century Fox.
The problem comes in with game designer François Bachelart alleging he showed the publisher an Alien game some years ago and that this game is essentially a direct copy of that very game.
Needless to say publisher Wonderdice are suggesting this game is a completely different design to the one from Bachelart.
It's a game developed internally by our team. We are currently victim of a little troll band which are unfortunately not a part of the Alien universe.
Whether we'll see the game make shelves later this year - as suggested by the publisher - remains to be seen, but for the time being you can hit up the website for a pre-order (at own risk one suggests).
