Publisher Review

"From out of these simple rules comes a tangible, choking, paralysing terror. This game is a diamond. Pure, hard and glorious . . . a triumph of design." --Shut Up and Sit Down "Absolutely, fantastically fun to play." --Tom Vasel, The Dice Tower "This is a great game when the power goes out!" - Jorge Garcia, from Lost and Hawaii Five-O "This game is a blast! . . . Great game! So much so that I'm keeping it in my gaming library." - Game Boy Geek "I believe it can turn into a very intense game where you might just out think yourself." - Through Gamers' Goggles "So engaging all the way along . . . a great, thematic, interesting game." - Toucan Play that Game "I love the box design, the use of the dry-erase map pads, and the card illustrations. And I like the way they tried to engineer a mechanic that would generate feelings of fear and claustrophobia . . . an entertaining game with lovely artwork, high production values, and a fun and unique hidden movement mechanic." - Gareth Branwyn, Boing Boing "I definitely highly recommend this." - Drive Thru Review "This game is something special." - The Board Game Review "It's a lot of fun! I really enjoyed this game." - Discriminating Game (TDG) "Very cool and super fun game with a group and an excellent gateway game for non-gamer's." - theMCGuiRE review "A cracking hidden role and hidden movement that is a staple to any shelf. . . . Every time it's brought to the table every single player will have fun and it's a great strategy game for both veterans and first timers." - n3rdabl3 "This is a great example of what a game can be in 2016." - Ghettoblaster "A map, markers, and a few cards are able to create a tension filled game of bluffing and logic. The game is truly greater than the sum of its parts. The easy to learn rules and meaningful decisions will keep players engaged and tense as they try to escape or attack." - BoardGameGeek News "The website scenario tool and map editor are really nice. Customers have commented to us about it, and I have also checked them out and like the many options to create countless maps." - Gamers World "It's a great, great game!" - No Rules Review "I thought this game was a lot of fun. The production is stellar. I think it's just amazingly pretty." - The Secret Cabal "If you are a fan of either of the gaming mechanics, Hidden Traitor, or Hidden Movement, then you will enjoy adding this game to your shelf! We think that the easy set-up and the lack of tokens, counters, figures, and a board also makes a great 'Gateway Game' to bring people into the wonderful world of horror tabletop games!" - Two-Gun Pixie "If you like hidden movement and, err, eating humans--well, this is the game for you." - Ars Technica, "Game on! The best board games of 2016" "If you like game that incorporate imaginative play, you'll want to have Escape from the Aliens in Outer Space in your collection." - Sahm Reviews "It's always an experience, and it's completely unlike any game out there." - Actualol "My recommendation is that if your group loves Letters from Whitechapel, lives and breathes Battlestar Galactica, and washes it down with The Resistance, then you have a winner here. Escape from the Aliens of Outer Space sits nicely in the realm of hidden movement and hidden role games, providing a large depth of immersion for a game that is so very easy to learn that exceeds at higher player counts for a true experience game." - Troll in the Corner "If you like games that incorporate imaginative play, you'll want to have Escape from the Aliens in Outer Space in your collection." - Scott Brady, SAHM Reviews
