Next weekend (Jan 21st-23rd), I'll be in Park City, Utah for "THE BIG C" Bawls Independent Game Competition. It is part of the Slamdance Film Festival! All this is going on at the same time as the Sundance Film Festival, which also takes place in Park City.

If you plan on being in the area for one of the festivals that weekend, be sure to stop by! We intend to have Alien Hominid on display to play, as it is one of the ten finalists in the competition! Wish us luck! :)

Also, be sure to check out the January issues of New Type magazine and Playboy - both feature AH. Has anyone had any random AH spottings, such as overhearing other people talking about it or whatever? I'm always curious around the buzz on the street!


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

Not 'on the street', but I presume you know about the Edge review?

7/10 and they state a prospective UK release date as Q1 2005

They criticise 'a few show-stopping bugs' but call it 'just about an essential title' for those wanting to enjoy a blast from the past.

It's a half-page review in the January issue. Sounds like something I'd really like to get when it comes out over here if it's a budget title (like MS3, which is £20) even disregarding its origin. I heard you're having some problems getting a UK publisher though. Is that true?

after the AH settles down and all, are you and dan planning on making another game in the future? maybe a sequel or a totally new game all together? if i could....if you make a sequel, you guys should play the game Silhouette Mirage for the playstation. it was made by treasure and is a crazy game. you guys should implement a system like theirs. ....its at least worth playing, you'll really love it, if you love metal slug.

and completely off subject, i should of posted this earlier when you made a post for new things we would like to see on newgrounds, but you should add catergories for favorite submissions. make catergories like favorite horror, comedy, drama and action flash. that way you can better sort your favorites and know what your looking for. cause after awhile you forget what one of the flashes are. and it would be good because, you might want to make a horror flash #1 because of a certain quality and maybe you think a comedy deserves #1 under your favorites for certain things. just a thought.

About Fulps' "Buzz on the street" I am constatly hearing AH. this and AH. that. But really, THE GAME WAS AWASOME! the only thing I found wrong about it was it was too short. the rest of it made up for that .
The Last Boss was KILLER!!!

I saw AH at Blockbuster in Nova Scotia. But I didn't rent it, because I only have an Xbox.. =(
I still haven't seen it at any of the game retailers around here - Probably 'cause we don't have shit for gaming store where I live.
