If you pick up a copy of the latest Game Developer Magazine, you will see that Alien Hominid is on the front cover! Good stuff! Alien Hominid was the featured Postmortem for May. John (Behemoth co-founder) and I wrote an article about the successes and failures of developing AH for the consoles!

For the thousands of visitors who don't have a clue what any of this is about, Alien Hominid is a game developed by Dan Paladin and I, originally as a Flash game here on Newgrounds. We then teamed up with some friends to form The Behemoth and remake it from scratch as a supercharged console game.

In other AH news, check out the Alien Hominid Store, we are now selling bundle packs! You can get the PS2 or Gamecube version of Alien Hominid along with a box of figurines for $49.95 - that is $16 less than if you bought them individually! Our on-line store only serves the US and Canada (sorry)!

The European release of Alien Hominid for PS2 and XBOX is on target for May 27th! Only 23 days until Europe (including Australia and New Zealand) can finally get their Hominid fix!


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

on the G4 show I thought it was funny how he mentioned nefrounds as often as possible yet they never scrolled a link across the bottom or even showed screen shots from it.

Do we have to buy the magazine to look at it, or can we stand in the aisle and thumb through it like the cheap bastards we are?

Looks like Alien Hominid number of press just keeps rising.

Any plans for a sequel? What is behemoth's next line of games?

That's too cool, Newgrounds is superior to all. Alien Hominid is a great game...just lucky I got it...I feel bad for Europeans and such...they'll get theirs soon enough however. And free advetrtising is awesome, I should buy some NG gear and go audition for some commercials.

That'll be a good mid-exams stress reliever.

I love you, Tom.
