Meh, close enough. :) They all keep quoting the early announcements, which touted the 6 million figure. :)

In all those smilies in your text, I can see you're really happy.

Congrats Tom.

Actually, the did.
Difficulties include ThumbSucker, easy, medium, and hard, and each player can have a differnet difficulty level in multiplayer, meaning Player 1 can have Hard on, while Player 2 has medium.

Good job Tom... as well as the others that worked on AH.

Also, tune in to G4TechTV tonight for the latest episode of X-Play. The show airs 11PM EST. They will be reviewing Alien Hominid! You can already read an on-line review at the X-Play website!

FINALLY! I've been waiting the longest time to see X-Play's review on AH.

Well all i can say is congratulations Tom (and Dan!).

After all the good reviews from magazines and all the positive response from people who played it, it seems like AH is really becoming a big hit. It has been very fun to follow the process of making the game from start on newgrounds and i am still amazed that you actually pulled it off. Anyone who doesnt respect the courageyou two have to start something like this, the time you spent into it and all the stress it must have caused, should be... well ehm..... spanked.

I've beatin the game already :/. There isn't much replay value to it though that's why I hope for another even though it might now happen.

Hopefully more levels too... cause the mini games were just alright.

I predict Adam will make a sad attempt at acting and "act" all angry when talking about the difficulty level. He does things like that all the time....That's probably why I stop watching X-Play.


Zing.

"Be that as it may, you’ll adore Alien Hominid. An attractive price, original concept, and splendid execution outshine issues such as its short-lived thrills and shallow premise. So go ahead, lock and load: we promise you won’t regret it."

g.j tom 4 out of 5 stars, i think taht you should update the ad bar saying "Alien Hominid coming soon" j
