Sleepwalk through a very 90s internet next month with Hypnospace Outlaw

No More Robots and Tendershoot announce the release date for bizarre browser game Hypnospace Outlaw.

No More Robots and Tendershoot announce the release date for bizarre browser game Hypnospace Outlaw.

Just to be clear, when we refer to Hypnospace Outlaw as a “browser game”, we don’t mean it’s a game that you can play in your browser.

Rather, Hypnospace Outlaw is a game that takes place within an internet browser. Of sorts. In your mind. Kinda.

Hypnospace users use their patented Hypnospace Headband™ to log on while they sleep, allowing them to surf the web and earn Hypnocoins even while they’re sleeping!

Well, that clears that up.

Joking aside, Hypnospace Outlaw is a bold and interesting example of a diegetic interface. Diegetic interfaces are those that exist in the fictional world rather than, or in addition to, our view of the world. The compass in Far Cry 2 or the pulse rifle ammo counter in Halo are the classic examples, while the map table and compass in Sea of Thieves are a more recent implementation.

Hypnospace Outlaw, like A Normal Lost Phone or Her Story, is one that lives entirely within its interface. And it is bonkers. In a good way.

Hypnospace Outlaw comes packed with a full, quite frankly ridiculous soundtrack of fake music and bands that could easily have existed in the ’90s, including tracks from hybrid rock-rap outfit Seepage, Swedish jazz rock group Klyfta, and hard rock group Chowder Man & The Boys.

Yes, the press release actually says that. We’re not entirely sure we’re helping you understand by this point.

Let’s take a different approach: we should probably also mention that it’s from Jay Tholen, creator of Dropsy. There we go. That’s got your attention.

And now Hypnospace Outlaw has a release date, and it’s very soon. March 12th, in fact.

Strap in and get ready for weirdness, brave Hypnospace warriors.
