Alien Hominid HD out for XBLA

Alien Hominid HD launched this past Wednesday on the Xbox Live Arcade for 800 Microsoft Points, and it’s been doing amazingly well. We’ve received some outstanding reviews from TeamXbox.com, Gamespot.com and IGN.com, with scores ranging from 8.5 to 9.3! In addition to the launch of the game we’ve been gearing up for our trip up north for the annual Independent Games Festival. we’re up for the Audience Award and Visual Excellence Award for our upcoming title Castle Crashers. A few years back we won three awards at the festival for Alien Hominid (the original version)

Updates will be lacking until we get back on the 12th of March, so in the meantime we suggest you take a look at Alien Hominid HD for the Xbox Live Arcade and if you’re good enough you might qualify to win our coveted Behemoth Trophies

Reviews and Updates


It’s been a hectic week for us, with the launch of the game this past Wednesday and the upcoming trip to San Francisco for the Independent Games Festival we don’t even have time to sit down and play some PDA Games with any of you.

We received some amazing reviews from our friends over at TeamXbox.com, Gamespot.com and IGN.com that we suggest you go check out. Here are some amazing things that have been said so far about Alien Hominid HD:

We will be gone all next week and won’t be back until Monday, March 12th, so our updates will be lacking until then. In the meantime be sure to head over to Gamespot.com and cast your vote for Castle Crashers, we’re up for the Audience Award and we could definitely use your support.

Alien Hominid HD out today for XBLA

Well, it’s been quite some time now but we can finally say that Alien Hominid HD comes out today. YAA! As I make this post it’s 11:43pm PST, 20 minutes away from the game hiting the Xbox 360 servers. We’ve come a long way from our original version of the game that ran on Newgrounds.com so many years ago. We couldn’t have gotten to this point if it wasn’t for all of our awesome fans that are out there. So if you have your 800 MS points ready and you want to get some serious 2D gaming action, log-on today and download your copy.

We want to make sure to mention that the Behemoth Trophy competition does not officially start until March 18th (when we get back from IGF) so be sure to get all of your practice in, once the competition starts it’s going to be an all out brawl for first place and the coveted Behemoth Trophies.

Good luck and thank you for all of your support!
