As part of our ongoing efforts to improve forum performance, we will be migrating to new servers within the week (perhaps on the weekend). Once we finalize the actual date and time, a notice will be posted here at least 4 hours prior to "go time". We expect a fairly long maintenance period of approximately 1-2 hours during the move.
The move to new servers is happening tonight at somewhere around 1amMIDNIGHT EST. There will be a significant period of downtime (30 minutes to 2 hours). Wish us luck!
Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!
Alien Hominid is a fast-paced 2D side scroller where players must run, jump and shoot their way across the globe in persuit of the alien's coveted UFO.
The artwork is completely hand-drawn and hand-animated, with character design by Dan Paladin (also known as synj).
I don't know about you guys but I'm pretty excited to finally get a chance to play this game as the Gamecube and PS2 versions were pretty damn hard to come by. But now for only 800 of your MS Points ($10 US, $12.79 CAD, £6.80 GBP) you too can play it in HD. The gameplay is very remenicent of Contra and Metal Slug, where it's all about dogding bullets while killing and destroying everything on screen. There are even two mini games that support Xbox Live multiplayer and in a short while The Behemoth, creators of this game, intend to give away real trophies for those on the top of the leader boards.
