[for immediate release]

Reynosa, Mexico – January 26th ,2021 – Human took my Neighbors! the retro-inspired top down action game developed by Carlos Garza, brings nostalgic campy arcade horror to PC / Mac / Linux and Switch with a Kickstarter !

Monsternett year 19XX – All the monsters are getting ready for their Halloween celebration when suddenly …. Humans start appearing from portals totally ruining the vibe and taking all the monsters to the Human World, now it’s Anthony’s and Fenrietta’s duty as proud members of the monster squad to save the remaining neighbors and find the cause for this madness!

Use a variety of weapons to face the Human menace, Anthony’s yoyo, Fenrietta’s bat, guns filled with unholy water, frisbees you name it, everything goes when facing the Humans. 

Save your neighbors or don’t with the game having multiple outcomes you’ll face different challenges if you fulfill your duty, or turn more monstrous if you see your neighbors perish.

Find out about the monsters and humans with secret collectables throughout the levels which contain details about the history and secrets of their worlds.

With a classic gameplay with a life system and usable items you’ll maneuver your way through the levels getting as far as you can in each run, fighting menacing Human bosses trying to smite the Monster Squad.

Humans Took My Neighbors!' Kickstarter is live! I’m hoping to raise $13,500 to develop the game full time and deliver by Q2 2022. Pledges for a digital copy of the game start at $15 and go all the way up to $200 for anyone who wants to help design a special enemy.

“My goal for this game is to create a single player and co-op experience reminiscent of games of yesteryear with modern sensibilities, and an original setting flipping the usual monsters are bad guys around and a humorous and spooky vibe I love from ZAMN”. - Carlos Garza
