PAX East 2020: The Recap, The Review

We met PAX East 2020 with fun, flair, and one funky little alien dude.

After announcing Alien Hominid Invasion at the end of January, PAX was the first opportunity for players to get their hands on a demo of the game! For all of our homebodies and friends that couldn’t make it to the show, we also revealed a first look at gameplay which you can watch here.

In the midst of all that jazz, there was of course much more going on: we debuted new merch, had games and competitions, and oh… did we mention that when Alien Hominid Invasion was playable, it was playable on custom-build arcade cabs?

Even if you missed the IRL sensations, you can see it all in our PAX East 2020 Recap video:

Reliving it is almost as good as being there, right? Right!?

But of course, for those who prefer to consume their memories in still, non-moving photo form, you can do that right here. We’ll give you the smallest taste with this beautifully crafted image of our Alien Hominid Invasion arcade cabs in the calm before the PAX attendee storm.

As we mentioned, this was the first time that players could ever get their hands on Alien Hominid Invasion! We were so thrilled to be able to share our current project with so many excited fans, and it was great to get firsthand feedback on the floor. In fact, we’ve already made some changes to the game based off of our experiences with players! This game is really shaping up to be something special.

Exemplary visual archives and wonderful memories aside, we fully intend on getting the game back out to more of our excited players later this year. Stay tuned for more news on that!

Also, in case anyone was wondering, the cold SUCKS. Every walk to and from the convention center was met with varying levels of freezing, struggling, and language not appropriate for our T-rated games. But you know what? Our team of spoiled-by-the-constant-sun San Diegans persevered anyway. We trudged like, two frozen blocks through wind and negative temperatures every day for almost a week. And we did it all for you, because we love you. <3

The Behemoth’s Home Roadshow feat. Alien Hominid Invasion

As you may have heard, EGX Rezzed will no longer be taking place at the end of March. Our bags were packed, itineraries double checked and reservations made… so now we’re coming to your house instead!

We will be bringing you with us as we embark on the Behemoth’s “traveling” roadshow wherein we travel the globe without leaving our offices. But wait, how will you come with us you ask? As vampire lore states, we can only come into your home with your permission. <vampircal wiki link here> But don’t worry! That won’t be a problem as watching us on Twitch will cover all those bases. It’s just like inviting us into your home or headspace, but minus the vampires. Makes sense, right?

Vlad and I are currently planning a special one of a kind Alien Hominid Invasion stream especially for you next week! Anyone anywhere in the world will be able to get a taste of our new game. It will be delicious! 

Keep an eye out, as we’ll be sharing more details on when exactly that stream will be as soon as we can!

Actually, you don’t really need to keep an eye out, because Vlad will always be able to find you. 🦇

Alien Hominid Invasion: First Look Gameplay

Have you prepped for the Invasion yet? Here’s a little extra intel that will help you get ready for the upcoming Alien Hominid Invasion…

Alien Hominid Invasion is a co-op run ‘n’ gun packed with chaos, mayhem, and a whole lot of explosions. Unlock and equip an arsenal of weapons and boosts, level up, then beam down to invade Earth with up to three other friends. Abduct intel from your enemies to sabotage their plans, observe the oddities of human life, blow up bosses, and mutate into a variety of powerful Alien forms in order to take down the not-so-secret Agents that are dead set on ruining your day.

During the invasion, you’ll determine your own gameplay path with a non-linear level experience and overrun the Agents in sectors built from hundreds of hand-crafted city blocks. Take over by mastering Alien acrobatics including flipping, diving, tossing your enemies, and more, then utilize your mutations to experiment with new mechanics like super speed, healing, and flight!

In co-op, each player can also choose their own challenge by picking their individual difficulty level: Friendly, Normal, or the infamous INSANE mode!

When development is complete, Alien Hominid Invasion is planned to launch on Steam (PC), Nintendo Switch®, and Xbox.

We’ll be sharing additional information about Alien Hominid Invasion across our social media channels as we continue the game’s development process. Be sure to follow us on Twitter and Instagram to stay in the loop!
