Back in 2002, two guys who longed for the good old days of 2D shooters like Contra and Gunstar Heroes created a Flash game called Alien Hominid. It quickly became a smash hit online, leading to a contract that led to a revamped version of the game released on consoles. Now that's a true underdog story. You can still play the original game for free on newgrounds.com. Warning: contains extreme violence.
