Alien Hominid HD is developer The Behemoth’s way of “contributing to preserving games”

The classic run-and-gun game Alien hominid will be getting both a remaster and a new version on modern platforms later this year, and producer Ian Moreno tells us that game preservation was a “big aspect” of the decision to develop a remaster.

For those unfamiliar, Alien hominid first released as an Adobe Flash game on the Newgrounds website in 2002, and later on mobile, handhelds and consoles. However, at the time of writing, the only way to play it on a modern console is via backwards compatibility with Xbox 360 on Xbox Series|S, meaning the title is becoming increasingly difficult to access.
