AH Press, Office Update Apr. 15th, 2005 @ 07:34 AM Reply

Today is the deadline for the response to my offer for the potential NG office (see post below). I'll announce the results when I hear them.

I just updated the Alien Hominid Press Section. This is a fun page that highlights all the magazine coverage we have tracked for AH! It doesn't include television or newspaper and we gave up on tracking the internet, but it's all really cool. With the European release on May 27th (check out Vote-Alien.com!), we will likely be splitting this into two pages - one for US press and one for Europe. John and I did some recent press meet-ups on our recent trip to England.

I'm sure many of you are pleased to see I stopped plugging the Flash version of Alien Hominid in the featured content above. That doesn't mean I don't need to promote the console version, though! While Alien Hominid for the PS2 and Gamecube has become nearly impossible to find via US retail, we still have copies available in our on-line store! Be sure to snag a copy before it is gone forever and becomes a collector's item! :)

Giant Magazine recently gave AH an A+, and the latest Nintendo Power awarded it the "Most Pleasant Surprise of the Year". The March issue of Game Developer magazine has a page featuring Dan's concept art, and watch future issues for a post mortem on AH development!

It's a good thing the Europeons are getting AH soon. Hominid is a great game that deserves to be seen around the world. It's only hated by people who have a fetish of stuffing electronics down their pants.

I've always wondered, does that count as spam? I mean it is, but does it result in a ban?

Good luck again, you really deserve a proper building to work in.

The publicity for the game is really widespread now. I have to tell my friend (who buys off the net) to get this game for me. After checking your website, I noticed your store which had figurines! Wow.

Anyway, I sent you an article you never received. Oh well. Wish you luck though.

I didn't mind AH being on the front page. I can see why you kept it there. But don't you think Numa Numa Dance has been long enough on the front page? I think the guy has got enough attention already.

It seems AH console version will be launched in Europe around the same time the new Star Wars opens, so I will be most likely focusing my attention and money on the latter. I'm not really that convinced I should by Alien Hominid. I'm not a big fan of sidescrollers. Plus I would need a new PS2, since mine is broken :(

I wonder if the Newgrounds HQ will be large enough to but in a bar, maybe even a mechanical bull...

If you get this office, Tom, you must waste no time in calling MTV to set up The Real Mod Lounge. My ideas are cash cows!

WOOT.
But wait...not on GameCube for Australia? Quit denying a third of your audience in each Region! (or is that a quarter? playstaion is half the market).

That Alien Hominid page sounds fun to shuffle through, hope you get the office Tom. By the way if you need a janitor I'm open.

Oh good, I'll be looking forward to that Tom.

And for those who can read small text on JPEG, this was an article I found in the Kid's paper in January (In Australia, kids section of a paper called 'Herald Sun'). Hope it's ok.

It would be great to see if you got that office block. Is it multi-storey block or a single floor. Also, Is there a certain time today the deadline is, or is it until midnight? Good luck.

It's also great to see everyone taking in Alien Hominid so well. Seen any profit from it yet?

No one wants to see a bunch of people behind pc's stroking their penis/vagina/man-gina whilst banning people to satisfy their sadistic needs. Actually, some might but that wouldn't be proper day time television.
