Originally a Flash game created by Dan Paladin
and Tom Fulp, Alien Hominid debuted on Newgrounds
in 2002 and received tons of praise. The following year, one of Dan's superiors at a game developer, John Baez, found out about Alien Hominid and decided it should become a console game.
The console version has completely redone coding and art, it is not the Flash version. The game
was released on November
22, 2004 for the PS2 and Gamecube for $30. Both critics and gamers praise it for bringing an exteremely fun, hip, and retro style of gameplay in a market trashed
by 3D games striving to have the most-realistic graphics and environments.
