- Alien Hominid Invasion and Alien Hominid HD were released on November 1, 2023.
- The Behemoth released both games to ensure the series lived on in the next-gen consoles.
- We interview the Co-Founder of The Behemoth to discuss some behind-the-scenes details.
Alien Hominid has a fair bit of history to its name, starting afresh all the way back in 2002 as an Adobe Flash game that you could boot up on your trusty internet browser. As time went on and The Behemoth’s interest in the IP started to take flight, Alien Hominid snowballed into a larger project, until finally, the developers announced a reimagining of the title right from the ground up.
As November kicked off, The Behemoth launched two Alien Hominid games, with one being an HD remaster and the other a straight-up sequel. In recent times, eXputer had the opportunity to sit down with John Baez, the developer studio’s Co-Founder, to go over some of the key details behind the iconic project as it went under the works.
Read ahead for the full discussion between eXputer and John.
The Behemoth has done some serious work to ensure that not only does the Alien Hominid continue to thrive in the next-gen consoles but that people also get to enjoy a re-imagination of the original Alien Hominid. While not many developers would go so far as to preserve its games, Alien Hominid is a unique case that inspired the creation of The Behemoth, as told by Baez.
While the studio has yet to reveal its future plans, I am extremely curious to see what the “text-based adventure” would look like from Baez. Regardless, it will likely be something completely new, as The Behemoth does not feel the need to revisit any of its other games.
