Now for people who KNOW me, I assumed this was because anyone who spends more than 10 minutes in my vicinity will realize I have an unhealthy obsess- um- deep, abiding love for that movie.
In fact, Aliens is a distant third influence on "Stranded". Number one would be Alpha Centauri, Sid Meier's classic strategy game about various factions who crash on an unexplored alien world. Huh, that does have a ring to it doesn't it?
Second influence would be "Enemy Mine", an absolute gem of a sci-fi movie about two alien pilots from opposite sides of an interstellar war who both crash on an unexplored planet and survive by working together.
