The latest developer diary for the upcoming Alien: Isolation showcases the game's future-from-the-past production design.

The team made a decision early-on in development that it wouldn't include any technology that couldn't have been created in 1979 to be used on the original film's set. For the displays appearing on the tube-televisions throughout the game, the team would record the video onto a VHS tape, rough up up the VHS tape, and then record the resulting intentionally poor-quality video into the game from a VCR.

You can check out the full video below, which offers a little bit of gameplay from the game. Alien: Isolation releases on October 7 for Xbox One and 360, and PlayStation 4 and 3, and PC. For more on the game head here for some of our hands-on impressions.
