If you see AH in stores today, let us know on this thread! Apparently Walmart is doing a test run of 200 stores - if it sells well in those 200 stores, they will expand the market for it. If you see AH in your local Walmart, snag it. :)

I know many of you are sick of hearing about AH, but there are always newcomers to the site who don't know the back-story. Alien Hominid started out as a Flash game on Newgrounds just over two years ago. Dan Paladin created all the artwork, and I did all the coding. In the two years since then, we have worked ungodly hours to get a console version of AH on the shelves. Today is the day when the dream should finally become reality!

tom i love that game thanks to you and dan! you can put a bet on it that im gonna buy that game, ive already told my mates about it! can you email me some hints on making a game? such as like a shooting game or something? if you consider, please email me some actionscript codes to jamesfletcher6@hotmail.com

Josh, quit being mean ! >:-(

And oh, what else could I say if it isn't "Good Luck" to everything concerning Alien Hominid ?
Because since I'm not in the USA, I don't really think I could do stuff about it, like help and go to Walmart ? Not really possible. So all I can give at the moment, is moral and written support. So there you go. I'm waiting for AH to come here in Europe, GameCube version though.

Just got off the phone with the Wal-mart near work, and they said it's not in today, but they are expecting it in very soon, probably by the end of the week. I'll swing by on my lunch hour later this week and pick it up.

If its not coming out for it fine, you can say that.

If it is coming out, just a some time in the future thats ok.
we can't say anything. if it's out of our mouth its official news, and we have no authority to give official news of that calliber on a whim.

So why not say ANYTHING?!? can you say why you are having problems with an xbox version? can you say SOMETHING?!?!? Can't you say WHY the xbox version is delayed or cancled... i mean I just asking for a bone!

AH is on my to-buy list, simply b/c I love Newgrounds and I want to support it. Also, b/c I am a fellow Flash game enthusiast. Should we buy the game from the website to ensure that the money heads to Newgrounds or what? Will you get a percentage regardless, no matter where I buy it?

In the meantime...I'm currently working on San Andreas. :)

I've got the the GC version pre-ordered so I guess I'm in for a slight wait - but that's ok cause my biggest concern was that I wouldn't be able to afford that and Metriod Prime 2: Echos on the same day. (There is always a bright side, no matter how dim it may be)


It serves its purpose.

Tom and Dan-
While I do not have either game console, I congratulate you both on a terrific job. The publishing of this game is truly representative of the dedication and hard work of independent artists and business owners. Thank you for taking such a giant step for all Flash artists.

Good luck with AH---maybe one day I'll get a life and buy a new gaming system.

Can someone please tell me, and i'm talking to Tom or Dan cause obviously theu are most likely to know, when is AH going to be available in the UK?

I know it has been said alot already but i figure the more you ask the more likely you're going to get an answer.

I thought Wallmart only sold wallpaper & stuff.

Best Buy didn't have it when I checked. Neither did the guy at the flea market. I'm sure it'll be a great game to have. What are you going to do about the title being covered by the Greatest Hits label?

PCs do kick ass, but not when it comes to side-scrollers.

We get a small cut if you buy it in retail stores, but we make a zillion times more if you buy it from the on-line store. :)


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

We are expecting to be signed with a European publisher before the month is over. Beyond that there is nothing I can report. :/

The sales have nothing to do with it, it's all a matter of what project I'm focused on. AH has kept me really busy... Right now I'm trying to pick back up on Pico 2, but I can't say what the future holds for new distractions.

Well I am very happy that you guys finally got this game out. If I had known the game was coming out sooner for PS2, than Gamecube, I would have preordered it for the PS2, but unfortunately, I got it for the Gamecube.

Tom, I truely would have bought it directly from you guys, but the only way I could afford it at the moment was to trade in some games at a local EB. If I had used direct cash, I would have certainly got it through you guys.

As for the console business, I'm really interested to see if either Tom or Dan looks to continue onward in that field. I'm sure both of you guys could use a break after working so long on AH, but do either of you guys see yourselves producing another console game a couple years down the road, either together or apart? I'm really hoping AH was not a one time deal. I think it's great that you guys are pushin Flash into the console business, and quite well I might add. It's really inspiration for any up and coming Flash artists.. Can't wait to play this game.

I'm going down to Best buy in a little while to see if they have either one. If by some miracle of god they do, I'm totally buying it.

oh yeah, I've spread the hominid word around school for you guys :)

I'm going to check the local EB Games sometime today. But I don't think I'll be seeing it for a little while, as there will likely be a delay for canadians.

Can't wait to get it! You guys rock!
