Definitely Not Space Hulk: Alien Assault 

You may remember a fine pretty-much-complete PC translation of the boardgame Space Hulk. You may then remember that the lawyers Cease-and-desisted 'em. You may then remember them trying to get permission from THQ. You may remember them saying that THQ has given permission as an April Fool's joke, in an impressive example of a sense of humour failure. And you may remember them deciding to file-off the serial numbers on Space Hulk by inserting their own fiction and re-do the game. Well, maybe you do - I stopped following it after the April Fool's gag. Anyway, they've finished and released it, now renamed Alien Assault and... well, this is an impressively bad job of filing off the serial numbers. If you want a PC Space-Hulk boardgame version, I'd go get it quickly, because frankly God knows how long it'll be up.
