In an interview with the Angry Joe Show, Gary Napper, Lead Game Designer on Isolation, states that the team has crafted a lengthy story than takes several hours to complete. He says, "The game's actually about 15 hours long because we've got so much to do with the narrative and all the different mechanics of the alien."
Although the story is linear, Napper promises that the game has many opportunities to explore and discover new places. "It's a bit like a Metroidvania game," he explains. "You can go back to areas and find new things, explore and open up new areas. There's a lot to do in the world."
However, Napper warns that it is hard to accurately estimate the length of Alien: Isolation. "The difficult thing is nailing a time because people can play for absolutely ages without even seeing the alien because they're being really careful and really stealthy," he says. "They've done nothing to call him down or there have been no explosions that he has come to investigate. Those people can get through it fairly quickly."
