Merry Bawk-mas from The Behemoth!

We’ve had quite the ending to our 2023 here at The Behemoth!

We returned to tradeshows, we launched two separate games across three different platforms, we held true to a years old April Fool’s Day post of making Castle Crashers Remastered Nintendo Switch Physical a REAL THING (restock coming early next year!), we gave our boy Blacksmith the plushie he deserved…we’ve been busy chickens.

As mentioned in our previous blog post, we recently pushed an update to Alien Hominid Invasion which added a bunch of new achievements, a new map algorithm, some balancing, along with a hotfix for Alien Hominid HD! Part Two of this update will land in early 2024.

And from now until January 4th at 10AM PST, enjoy some savings on our games and spread the holiday cheer in the Steam Winter Sale! And as an extra holiday thank you from our team, catch our new releases Alien Hominid Invasion and Alien Hominid HD during their first discount ever!

Thank you for reading this with your human eyes in a voice you can’t quite place, and for being the reason We Make Games for the past twenty years. We couldn’t have made it this far without you, and we certainly wouldn’t want to!

See you for the next trip around the sun,

The Behemoth

New Year’s Update!

We have been very busy since the beta, mulling over the data, making the improvements you asked for, and seeing who can build the biggest snowman(current record: 3 ice cubes high, not much snow in San Diego).

December Developer Update Recap: 

Right before Christmas, Dan went over the new Alien Hominid Invasion changes on stream, so we made a list (and checked it twice) of some of the changes in case you missed them. 

  • New Enemies: Inchworm + Big Crab
  • You can now change difficulty on a save!
  • Sewer Children have a chance to sell a weapon in game
  • HUD redesigned and follows players
  • Alien picks up speed when running
  • Highest Aggression raised on agents
  • Normal Difficulty max hearts down by one

We learned a LOT from the time everyone poured into the Beta, so we thank you for the best present ever: data! These are only a fraction of the changes we made, but many of them came from direct player requests; thanks for helping us make the game the best it can be!

Check out the recap video here!

Speaking of the beta…

Beta Challenge Submissions: 

Many of you made submissions to our Beta Challenge, so we wanted to highlight the runs, strategies, and builds you all used to climb the leaderboards. I’m so proud of everyone I could cry! Too bad chickens don’t have tear ducts.
