Castle Crashers Dev Announces New Alien Hominid Game

The alien is back to run and gun some people down.


The Behemoth, developers behind indie action games like BattleBlock Theater and Castle Crashers, has announced that it's working on a brand-new entry in the long-dormant Alien Hominid franchise.

Alien Hominid: Invasion is The Behemoth's next project, the studio confirmed with the brief 40-second teaser trailer below. Invasion is not a prequel or a sequel, nor is it a remaster or a remake. The Behemoth, in a developer Q&A, said Invasion is a new game within the Alien Hominid franchise. And yes, Alien Hominid: Invasion is co-op. "Every time you support The Behemoth you support co-op games," the studio said. "We need more of them in the industry, and [we're] just so happy that we can keep making them."

Further details about Invasion are scarce, but The Behemoth confirmed it will make an appearance at PAX East and EGX Rezzed with a playable demo of Invasion available on both show floors. PAX East runs from February 27-March 1 in Boston, while EGX Rezzed takes place between March 26-28 in London.

In a blog post on the studio's official website, The Behemoth confirmed that Alien Hominid: Invasion is currently in development for consoles and PC. A release date or window has yet to be announced.
