It appears Nordic Games has plans to resuscitate it’s UFO-driving, human abducting, alien action-adventure series.
When asked about the series on Twitter, executive producer at Nordic Games Reinhard Pollice said, “there are a few options we are evaluating now. Hope to get started on one of these soon.”
Destroy All Humans! Was originally a THQ owned series, however, when THQ went bankrupt its properties were all auctioned off. Nordic Games was among one of the bigger buyers of these properties, and Destroy All Humans! was one franchise they picked up.
What is Destroy All Humans!?
Destroy All Humans! is an action adventure game that is set in 1959 in the U.S. and parodies the lifestyles, pop culture, and politics of the time period. The player controls Cryptosporidium 137, a member of the fictional Furon race of alien life, who has come to Earth to harvest DNA from humans to continue the cloning process of his species.
Whether the new game will be a remaster or a brand new addition in the series remains to be seen.
Destroy All Humans! has a special place in my heart. Whether it was using psychokinesis on police vehicles, using the abducto-beam on every poor soul I saw, or abusing the anal probe weapon’s powers — Destroy All Humans! is just zany unadulterated fun. I expect Nordic Games plans on rebooting the series rather than make a new addition, after all the franchise does consist of some pretty terrible games.
