Alien Hominid Press Coverage 2004-07-28 19:47:48 Reply

Yesterday morning, Ricardo Torres from Gamespot.com flew into town (I'm in San Diego for the rest of the week) to sit down and film an Alien Hominid video interview! The interview will be appearing on Gamespot tomorrow afternoon (Thursday), so be sure to check it out! It was great meeting with him - he's a hardcore gamer with excellent taste, and he likes AH! It is beyond our wildest dreams to get all this positive response!!!

Ever since the interview, I've been working on completely re-building the Alien Hominid website. The new build hasn't launched yet, but we hope to launch tonight. You'll know when it has been updated, because the new version won't feature any Flash. I decided to strip it down as much as possible (the Google method), so the largest number of visitors can access everything without loading or compliance issues.

The new AH site will provide some more back-story, as well as provide information for ordering figurines and t-shirts! We'll have an official on-line store in the near future.

We are also working on some big changes for NG! Despite already having three different navbars spread across the site, we will be introducing a new update. It has bigger buttons and less clutter - I don't think there will be any complaints. We do need to make more effort to implement it across the site, however. Sorry for the inconsistency!


This is the game JohnnyUtah and I have been working on.

yayness... how much is it gonna cost? please dont say over $40...
heres the ign review

Originally a wildly popular Flash game on the NewGrounds website (with art by SYNJ Industries, programming by NewGrounds founder Tom Fulp and music by LHM), the action-blaster with the manic yellow monster makes its way to the console realm. Still in blistering hand-drawn 2D, the television version features vastly improved graphics and animation, a new soundtrack, new vehicles to take command of, and even more frantic gameplay elements in this side-scrolling homage to greats like Contra and Metal Slug.

tom thats really awesome! sounds great! i use to have flash on my comp be then :(. it started acting weird and i havent been able to check out the alien hominid site (well in less i use the laptop). this project is turning out better then i expected! and please make it for xbox! because the ps2 controller has a weird d-pad and the gamecube's d-pad is way to small. O~3 Entertainment is going to be ur publisher?

You should show off Alien Hominid at Wizard World in Chicago beginning August 13th. You would probaly be the only video game there.

Of course he liked it... How could you not enjoy eating peoples' heads?!
I'm looking forward to watching that interview tomorrow. The game was great at Comic-Con (though it froze up on me!) and it was nice to see some of the later levels.

When are you gonna' let me buy you that cup of coffee before you leave?

Wow.

I'm sure Tom knows the spelling of his brother's name, and can tell the difference between Wade and some retarded noob who can't spell.

New game for my collection? New site layout?

Sounds good. Do any of these new features have anything to do with the audio portal?

The interview sounds like a perfect way to get more attention. Maybe you'll be on the magazine too. Who was interviewed? Was Dan in the interview also?
