When Destroy All Humans was originally released in 2005, it was a goofy science fiction action comedy game that was a bit jerky and rough on the edges, but a lot of fun by applying the traditional alien invasion concept to the Upside down. Instead of warding off a threat from space, play as an invading alien. Against the backdrop of the 1950s, you take control of the Furon Empire to kidnap remarkable people, examine their DNA, and ultimately overthrow the entire planet.
Fifteen years later we get a remake of the original game. This is a faithful replica of the game from 2005 with a complete graphic revision and a consistently more modern representation. It is hardly up to date graphically, but this remake is much nicer to look at than the dated original.
Before the release date on July 28th, THQ Nordic released a playable demo of the game that is now available on Steam or GOG.com. They also released an interactive trailer that branches in different directions to showcase some of the game variations the game offers.
This game is not a particularly serious business, but if you want to have a bit of silly fun or want nostalgia for the original game, it may be up your street. Destroy All Humans will be available on PC and consoles on July 28th and can be pre-ordered now.
