Alien Incident (Finnish: Muukalaisten yö, lit. Night of the Aliens) is a 1996 point-and-click graphic adventure game. It was developed by Finnish game developers Bloodhouse and Housemarque and published by GameTek for the MS-DOS platform.

Plot[edit]

On Halloween, Benjamin Richards is at his uncle's mansion to bear witness to his newest invention, the "Worm Hole Spawner." Upon activation, a wormhole brings an alien spaceship into Earth's solar system. The aliens kidnap Benjamin's uncle who the player must rescue in addition to stopping the alien threat.

Gameplay[edit]

The game uses point-and-click to pick up items and thereby combine them or use them with another on-screen item to solve puzzles.

Development[edit]

The game was initially developed by Bloodhouse (before the company merged with Terramarque to form Housemarque) and it was known during development as Leokadia. In January 1994 a six person team had developed the game for nine months and it was due for release in Fall 1994 for PC and later for Amiga 1200. The game came out eventually in 1996 for PC and the Amiga 1200 version was cancelled.[1]

Reception[edit]

Pelit gave the game 90 out of 100.[2]
