Aliens: War Games was a cartoon series proposed around 2007 and developed by Bluefields Creative. The notion was to generate a series of short episodes, in the vein of the series Star Wars: Clone Wars (2003-2005).
"Newbie is a rookie Colonial Marine in a future where the Alien threat is widespread and feared by all. Marine training now involves HOT "Bug Hunt" scenarios - HOT meaning this is not a simulation. Rookies are dropped into a semi-controlled environment with live ammunition and REAL aliens (though tethered with remote stun collars). Each episode of the animated series would start with a mini-episode of Newbie and his training exercises, which get more elaborate each week. The animated piece at bluefieldscreative.com represents the first training exercise, pitting Newbie, with very limited ammo, in the middle of an abandoned terraforming station that is home to one single alien. A very dangerous game of one-on-one hide-and-seek. Of course, by the end of the first season, Newbie will be integrated into the main storyline and seeing his first taste of real action in the war against the bugs, but these mini-episodes will serve as a fun pre-credits adventure prologue to each episode."
The series was developed by Bluefields Creative. It employs a similar animation style to that of Star Wars: Clone Wars. There was apparently already some interest in the show from a network prior to February 15, 2007, but the project hadn't made it to 20th Century Fox as of the same date.
