Alien Hominid! Jul. 14th, 2003 @ 11:01 PM Reply

Ok, I've accidentally let the cat out of the bag on several occasions (I was never supposed to mention the game nor the platform), but we're finally going public with the news... YES, we ARE working on ALIEN HOMINID for the console systems! In fact, we are working on versions for all three - PS2, XBOX and Gamecube!

It has been a crazy ride so far, and we are pushing hard for a Christmas release. Synj and the gang from San Diego will be at Comic Con, booth number is 4028. I won't be able to make it out to the west coast this time around, but if you are there you can meet Synj and get some rad Alien Hominid stickers!

In other news... Sorry for the continued sluggishness of the servers. It turned out our software upgrades didn't account for the SQL caching we needed, so we had to upgrade the software EVEN MORE, to all sorts of INSANE LEVELS OF ENTERPRISE EDITION SOFTWARE MAYHEM. James has been on the phone with the PHP guys in Israel on a regular basis, doing everything possible to pump the most power out of our back-end systems.

The new database server should be upon us shortly, and as mentioned previously, it's a beast. It's gonna take your queries and put them in a headlock and make them cry unkle(sic). Of course, the poor webserver farm is still struggling to keep up, but once the twins arrive and we get a new switch, that should be eased up a bit. Not to mention the old decomissioned database server still has some muscle left in him, and he'll be pulling webserving duties as well. We may try to get on a recurring schedule of buying new webservers EVERY MONTH, because once in a while just isn't cutting it. We need an army!

More updates as they become available!

Will the Alien Hominid game have synj industries/Newgrounds logos included in it, or will the whole whamjam be absorbed by the game company producing it? Imagine the effect a simple "www.newgrounds.com" with NG Tank would have if it always appeared at the beginning of the game with all the introduction stuff...

You have a fuckin monster of a company, Tom. If I were you I'd still be boggling over how it all came about. Neo-Geo fanzine...goddamn man, goddamn.

Entry: Abduction Junction Overall rating: 4
Aw, baby. Where you going? Please don't walk out that door. Don't walk out on Smoove B. He's the man who can make everything all right. He's the man who can make love to you all night.

What were you thinking when you made this flash movie, girl? I didnt find it very funny. Why don't you bring that pretty little ebony booty of yours to Smoove B's crib, and let me make love to you until the break of daylight.

C'mon baby, let Smoove take you away." - Review by SmooveB

What kinda crap is that? that's not a review, that's just sexual harassment! all your reviews are like that, no wonder they blocked you from making reviews.

Anywayz... yeah.. i hope the Alien Homonid game actually has the NG and synj logos on it, if its just a regular software company's logo on it, that would kinda suck :/

Thats great tom. If alien hominid comes out to gamecube then i'll buy it. That should make up for the years of free flash hosting... hehehe... And I have faith you are doing your best on the PHP SQL cache database blah blah blah... make sure you check the "gigabytes". Good luck.

It's 2D, and Synj's updated characters make the original look like crap in comparison!

Contratulations, Tom. I would've expected it to be a GBA game, but you managed to get it on the big 3, which is quite an accomplishment. Dude, if this works out, do Pico 2 next. I will pay for it! I mean in a market with titles like GTA and Postal, Pico would fit right in. Oh, and do an interview for Nintendo Power while you're at it. (They need the money.)

sweet! A 3d game would look like crap with this kind of game, a 2d one would go good, good like those 2d fighting games where you pull off all this wacky shit, good fun!

also tom, is it gonna conitinue off of where the flash version left off? or will it be likethat part replayed so people who havent played it knows whats going on...... lol one more thing, is there gonna be a storyline? or is it gonna be just him trying to get home/get a new ship? hehe girl AH..... and he has to save her!

if you do make alien hominid for the three systems and it goes out to public then you'll make a fortune. and if you make a fortune then u could make newgrounds better. i can't believe that you're actually going to pull it off. with that said all i can do for now is support you guys. oh and if you don't make it... I'LL HUNT YOU DOWN AND... AND... shit i don't know what i'll do. ah fuck it.

And thus initiates Tom's plan for world domination. All those late nights playing Risk with Wade have finally payed off. lol

It ALL sounds good Tom. I'm glad to hear that AH will make it to GC since that is the only one of the 3 major systems i have. And i will buy it, that's a fact. I would send you guys money to help support NG but my parents would find that bad for some reason. So i'll just buy your game.=)

This sounds like a good idea. The original game was the best thing to hit newgrounds after the whole osama period died down. Just how much information are you willing to release about this game?


Investing in stupidity.

Question 1: ...Really? You're making an Alien Hominid for the consoles?

Question 2: It's not going to be filled with advertisements about porn websites and school reunion services, is it?

Thats what he said. Would Tom lie?

Question 2: It's not going to be filled with advertisements about porn websites and school reunion services, is it?

And pop-ups too! Tom wants to convey the whole feeling of playing a game on NG. (Just kidding, i dont complain about teh porn banners or pop-ups... ever.)

I guess this means newgrounds will soon be overcome with users due to millions of people discovering it and because of the population, the site will be rendered unable to function and be abandoned for a new bigger site and left as "oldgrounds" and people will always use run-on sentences like no tomorrow just to piss people off and I'm done.

amazing, how mind boggling that the once simple web site which the only thing entertaining was telebubbies will now have a platform game

congrats, man and thanks for getting it on gamecube, it badly needs some good games

how much money do you think you'll be making

amazing, amazing, amazing

---and to that stupid whiner, suck it up, you screwed up and now you pay the consequences

That's incredible, Tom! One more awesome creation for all of us. I doubt you'll answer any production related questions here (like your programming role, etc), so I hope you include something like that upon the release of Alien Hominid (within the game or at this site) - you can be sure all the NG fans will want to read it.

About Newgrounds. I get the extreme load message from time to time, but the speed is great. I do get to see pop-ups, but they're necessary - I think I'm the only fan who isn't complaining about them. Go get 'em, Tom!

(P.S.: KA-CHING!)

Alien Hominid!
