Alien Hominid

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.

I tried the game for a minute and I have to say it's a pretty good job for a non-professional outfit. I might et more into it if I played more, but since I can't play at work, I'll have to tryit again when I get home.
Pretty cool.
