Alien: Isolation uses sound effects and music to scare

British video game developer The Creative Assembly uses sound effects and music to keep players in a permanently tense state when exploring its video game Alien: Isolation.

The title is a spin-off from Ridley Scott's 1979 movie, and features a single alien creature hunting down the protagonist for much of the game.

Watch the commentary-free video above to see and hear how the designers married sound and vision to create a sense of horror.
