The Alien Hominid Invasion Demo will be available to play
on Steam on September 12th and 13th, and again on September 18th and 19th (that’s in Pacific Time, for everyone joining us from across the globe).
We have lots of new bits and pieces of the game to share, including increased difficulty, new enemies, art updates, achievements, more objectives, map updates, additional enemy swarms, the addition of lunch money, and the highly-requested (and totally optional!) blood and gore feature.
While we continue to develop the game, we haven’t nailed down a release date just yet. Either way, we can’t wait to show you what we’ve been working on and hear what you think!
The Behemoth Booth Experience
This year our booth is alllllll virtual, which makes it extra easy to drop by! We’ll be spinning up a special “PAX Online” section in our
Discord server so we can chat about all things back and you can meet up with other show attendees.
We’ll also have special Discord Booth Hours, where you can drop by to chat with Behemoth staff and pretend you’re actually at the show! When these hours are on, you’ll be able to drop your questions and comments in a special text chat channel, and join up in one of our voice servers to hear us read and respond in real time!
Each date will have a special focus that we’ll be chatting about. Check out our schedule here:

P.S., or should we say “P.C.”: You may have noticed something extra special happening on September 14th! Patric Catani is the talented composer behind much of the music you know and love from BattleBlock Theater, Pit People, and soon to be Alien Hominid Invasion. He’ll be putting on a very special musical show for all of the Behemoth fans at PAX Online, so this is definitely a day you won’t want to miss!
Merch: The PAX Vault Opens!
We always roll up to PAX with some pretty cool merch and exclusives, and this year is no different. We’ll have a full spread of merchandise available at
store.thebehemoth.com, as well as some new Alien Hominid Invasion pieces and an exclusive PAX Online T-Shirt that you won’t want to miss.
Seriously, you don’t want to miss it.
We call this one “your brain on online isolation”.
Plus, for the first time ever, we also have a special offering that we’re calling “The PAX Vault”. We’re clearing out our stockroom of old and forgotten PAX merchandise from years and tradeshows past, so if you ever saw something super cool that you just couldn’t get, now might be your perfect chance!
Sizes and styles in the PAX Vault are extremely limited, so if something catches your eye you’ll want to grab it as soon as possible! When it’s gone, it’s gone, and it ain’t comin’ back!
Alien Hominid Invasion: Streamer Survival Challenge
We’re challenging all the livestreaming Alien invaders to a special competition during PAX Online + EGX Digital!
