Alien Hominid Invasion will reimagine the 18-year-old series for a post-Flash age.
This year, Alien Hominid is old enough to vote. And the 2002 game’s developers have announced that the little yellow run-and-gunner will return for a new entry.
Alien Hominid was, originally, a Flash game co-developed by Newgrounds founder, Tom Fulp. The game got a console release in 2004 and an Xbox Live Arcade HD re-release in 2007. Since then, the series has remained dormant as developers The Behemoth created early indie hit Castle Crashers, plus the lesser known BattleBlock Theater and Pit People.
Now, The Behemoth has announced that Alien Hominid Invasion will be the studio’s fifth game. According to a trailer released on The Behemoth’s Twitter, a demo will be playable at PAX East and EGX Rezzed.

The trailer doesn’t really explain anything but it does feature a whole bunch of multi-colored aliens. We’ll have to wait and see what this invasion (oh, I get it) will mean for the new game.
