Back in the day, Alien Hominid was voted one of the hardest games ever made, by some people online that were probably important (maybe?). Hard+fun = Alien Hominid. What a beautiful formula it was. If you want a taste of how games used to be made, pick up this title and challenge yourself to win one of our handmade trophies! And if that is not enticing enough, starting this Friday, June 8th, Alien Hominid HD on Xbox LIVE Arcade will be 50% OFF the original price!
For one week only, you can download Alien Hominid HD for only 400 MS Points and see the world from the eyes of a 2D yellow alien. Fight off all the secret agents, fly UFOs, chomp down on enemies’ heads or play one of the numerous mini-games such as PDA games or Super Soviet Missile Mastar.
This sale will be just in time for our temporary reactivation of leaderboard trophies. For the month of June only, we will be awarding the top scorers of Alien Hominid HD and two of its mini-games.
In order to receive one of our coveted one-of-a-kind trophies, just be the top ONLINE leaderboard scorer in the following categories:

Those who already have the game can start today! The first prize will be awarded this Saturday, June 16th to the highest score on Alien Hominid HD (Medium difficulty). If you don’t have it yet, download Alien Hominid HD on XBLA and start racking up those points.
UPDATE: We have changed the score verification day to Saturday. Scores are reset on Sundays GMT, so to ensure that we get the most valid information, we will be checking weekly leaderboards on Saturdays between 9AM-noon PST. Sorry for the confusion!
