Alien Hominid HD Coming Soon to Modern Platforms!

You’ve been asking for AGES…

And we knew that access to Alien Hominid HD was not ideal. With only one avenue to currently purchase the game (outside of overpriced resellers tsk tsk), many fans were left in the dark when wanting to revisit the classic run ‘n’ gun sidescroller. You can blame the agents for that.

What you didn’t have was the secret Intel. The Redacted, Confidential, Behemoth Secret Intel. Yes, this secret was a big one – the secret of us preparing Alien Hominid HD for modern platforms all this time. And at the beginning of us developing this secret, we created another secret – the game that is now Alien Hominid Invasion – in addition to the original secret that we vowed to keep secret.

So there you have it, the lore of all Alien Hominid secrets in one grand reveal… or is that really all of them?

Alien Hominid HD, meet modern platforms. Modern platforms, meet Alien Hominid HD! Wow, wasn’t that the introduction of a lifetime? To be a bit more specific here, Alien Hominid HD is coming to Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, Steam, and Nintendo Switch this year, along with Alien Hominid Invasion. Hooray!

Watch the announcement trailer here.

Adding to the excitement, the newly-ported and polished Alien Hominid HD will be available to purchase in a bundle with Invasion, saving you some hard-earned lunch money in the process. When can you get your hands on the individual games, or the bundle, you may ask? Well, we haven’t announced a release date yet, so prepare yourself for another announcement coming soon…™️

Get yourself a treat from the Steakery Cakery to celebrate the news, let out a BAPI BAPI BAAA (or two?), wishlist Alien Hominid HD on Steam, and wait just a bit longer for not one, but TWO alien games coming to a thing near you! And thanks for the patience and trust while we’ve worked on porting this game and simultaneously developing a brand new game – we appreciate it with all of our grimey little alien hearts.

Alien Hominid Invasion Coming in 2023!

Yes, you read that correctly! After spending the year diligently prepping for the invasion, the aliens plan to land on Earth in 2023. We are so excited to finally share our fifth game, Alien Hominid Invasion, with the world next year.

As the year comes to an end, our team is working hard to create exciting, memorable bosses that players can look forward to battling throughout the invasion. We can’t wait for you to test your skills!

But what about everything else we’ve added to the game this year? Here are some quick highlights:

Difficulty options – We added Permakeep and Permadeath options, adding another layer of difficulty for players! Also, difficulty level (Friendly, Normal, and INSANE!) can now be changed within each save file and player profile, so that everyone can have the perfect amount of challenge. Adjust this as you wish, so the game is not too hard, not too soft, but juuuuuust right.

New enemies and challenges – Along with checkpoint levels and shiny new (and sometimes spiky) hazards, we added new enemies like the Bounder, Inchworms, and Big Crabs to sprinkle a little variety into your invasion and keep the chaos rolling!

HUD redesign – The HUD has been completely overhauled since the beta, with the danger meter now visible on the bottom of the screen. Player details such as health and mutation level now follow the player and take up less space on the screen, leaving more room for extraterrestrial chaos!

Delightful interactions – The Mothership now knits you back to life after you fail a level. Cute, right? In true mom fashion, she’ll also send some passive-aggressive texts if you don’t upload your gathered intel fast enough. Best not to upset mom!

Aaaand that’s about it for our quick 2022 developer recap. We’re excited to see what 2023 (and the invasion!) has in store. Still searching for more intel? Check out our newly improved AHI website here, and stay tuned for our next dev stream coming early 2023!
