It’s the season of spookies and scaries, and we’re turning up the fear factor to SO very scary for our So Very Scary Merch Sale.
From October 26th through October 31st, the most villainous selected merchandise from our store will be available for scary good prices!
If you’re a fan of raising the dead, check out our Necromancer collection. If you’re a fan of the just dead, then take a peek at our Series 2 Skeleton Figurine. Those items and more have had their prices brutally slashed, all to celebrate Halloween.
See all of the tricks and treats at store.thebehemoth.com, and be sure to haunt the store before the sale ends on October 31st!
And as one more spooky side note, remember to get your entries in for this year’s Behemoth Halloween Contest! You could win a bundle of treats by making a spooky Behemoth Halloween drawing, or drawing a Halloween costume on our Behemoth chicken and sharing a picture on social media with the hashtag #BehemothHalloween. No tricks when it comes to this one — you can get the details on our drawing contest right here.
Though the radio channels have seemed quiet, our team has been hard at work on prepping the mothership for an eventual (but imminent!) landing.
The feedback we received from everyone who demoed our game during PAX Online + EGX Digital was invaluable; since then, we’ve been hard at work making changes and implementing new features (both stemming directly from some of that feedback and our own strange and creative minds).
New features like… THIS BEE GUN. (And the Electrobot’s shields, too.)
*The charge shot on the Bee Gun is still a work in progress!
Here’s a small list of some of the other changes we’ve made to Alien Hominid Invasion since last month’s demo.
Visual reworks for multiple weapons including the Acid Shot, Six Shooter, Cryoshot, and more
New weapon: Bee Gun
Addition of boosts with new perks including heal on objective completion and higher coin drop chance
Tiered items now have better visual organization to aid in quick and clear understanding
New hazards: fire and bombard added
Flybots are rideable and now drop mines as their attack
Electrobots now shield units and no longer slow nearby players
Megabot now has a laser spin attack
The game HUD has been cleaned up
While we don’t quite know how far we still have to go, we want to share more frequent updates with you while we continue to work on Alien Hominid Invasion so you can see how far we’ve come in the meantime. We’ll also still be doing periodic development streams to share closer looks at game tweaks and changes, so stay tuned!
If you’re looking to keep up with mothership communications in the meantime, make sure to wishlist Alien Hominid Invasion on Steam!
Pumpkins, crunchy leaves, and all things eepy and creepy — spooky season is in full swing!
As if this year wasn’t already scary enough, we’re going to encourage striking even more fear into people’s hearts with our 2020 Halloween Drawing Contests!
You have two ways to enter, one being extra spooky and the other being the perfect place to experiment with tricks or treats… we’ll show you what we mean.
Spooky Behemoth Art Contest
The first category is a contest for Spooky Behemoth Art! It’s your scary destiny to recreate a Behemoth character or something from one of our games in the creepiest, crawliest, ookiest, spookiest way possible. Don’t hold back! (But do keep it safe for work, because we are… working.)
Chicken Costume Contest
If nightmare fuel isn’t quite your thing, we’re also putting a unique spin on a costume contest this year, featuring our star, the chicken! For the Chicken Costume Contest, start with the chicken below (or draw your own version of it) and put it in the best Halloween costume you can think of!
Both categories will have 3 winners each, with one winner for each category and prizes as follows:
(1) The Best (in Our Humble Opinion) Spooky Art Contest: “Bear” Figurine Chicken Costume Contest: Skeleton Figurine
(2) The Spookiest Scariest Both Contests: Bitey Bat Hat and Necromancer Keychain
(3) The One That Makes Us Laugh ’til We Cry Both Contests: Racoon Hat
Or, for you straightforward people, that’s Best in Show, Scariest, and Funniest. We’ll pick winners based on creativity, originality, and the ability to make us feel emotions that we weren’t previously feeling.
To enter, just post your drawing publicly (or a picture of it) to Twitter, Instagram, or Facebook using the hashtag #BehemothHalloween before October 31st,2020 at 11:59 PM PT. We will review the entries and select our winners during the first week of November, and winners will receive spooky Behemoth merchandise!
You can see the scariest stuff of all right here — official rules and legal stuff:
