Alien Hominid Invasion gameplay trailer reveals a bunch of new content

An Alien Hominid Invasion gameplay video has just been released online, showcasing some of the changes coming to the new edition.

extraterrestrial hominidThe origins of go back to 2002 when its original incarnation was first uploaded to Newgrounds, the mecca of Flash animation. It was co-developed by site founder Tom Fulp and artist Dan Paladin, who would soon form The Behemoth, a bona fide game development company born out of their early 2000s Flash gaming experience. Two years later, a bigger and better extraterrestrial hominid was released on PS2 and GameCube. While the first free version of the game contained only one level, the console re-release was expanded to 16 levels and included unlockables and new music, in addition to many other improvements.


Now, a few years later, an adult reaches full maturity, extraterrestrial hominid is coming to Nintendo Switch, Xbox One and PC as Invasion of extraterrestrial hominids. This new release will be a “reimagining” of the 2004 title, extending Fulp and Paladin’s humble Flash game legacy even further. A gameplay video that has just been posted online showcases some of the changes in the new edition.

Biggest in the trailer is the game’s graphical overhaul. Gone are the titular alien’s human-looking arms and legs – his redesigned look has small, superficial limbs that contrast with his big head. Essentially, the alien just got a whole lot cuter. A number of new appearance options for the player-controlled alien have also been added. Also, the animation looks smoother compared to its predecessor.

Other features include co-op that supports up to four players, either on a shared console or online; randomly generated levels; non-linear story progression; “mutations” for the alien that give it new powers and abilities; and full animated cut scenes. The extent to which “re-imagining”, as the game has been described by its developers, means either a bloated remake or an all-new game featuring the same protagonist has yet to be clarified.

The Behemoth has yet to announce a release date for Invasion of extraterrestrial hominids, opting instead to simply state that it will “eventually” be released on Switch and Xbox, and on Steam. For now, PAX East attendees will be able to try out the first public version of the game.
