Earlier this year at PAX East 2020, The Behemoth brought a playable demo of Alien Hominid Invasion to the showfloor for attendees to get their hands on for the first time. The latest game from the makers of Castle Crashers, Battleblock Theatre, and Pit People— Alien Hominid Invasion is a cooperative run-and-gun platformer that is overflowing with chaotic battles and waves of enemies trying to take you down.
The team has been hard at work on Alien Hominid Invasion since the public was last able to play, and The Behemoth is eager to showcase some changes made to the game for those keeping up with PAX Online 2020, set to kick-off this weekend. According to The Behemoth, here are the updates you can expect to see in the latest build of Alien Hominid Invasion:
