Destroy All Humans! - Concept, Sequels and Spinoffs

Concept, Sequels and Spinoffs

The game was conceived of by Matt Harding while he was working at Pandemic Studios following Microsoft's rejection of a more family-friendly game concept. Harding never worked on the game, since he "didn't want to spend two years of life writing a game about killing everyone". He left soon after on his Asian walkabout, and began recording some of the footage that eventually became the "Where The Hell Is Matt?" videos.

Due to the game's success several sequels have been made: Destroy All Humans! 2, which takes place in the 1960s and marks the first time Crypto invades across the globe, Destroy All Humans! Big Willy Unleashed, a spinoff set in the 1970s in which Pox and Crypto run a fast-food chain, and Destroy All Humans! Path of the Furon, which also takes place in the 1970s and begins with Crypto and Pox running a lucrative gambling casino called the "Space Dust".

On October 26, 2005, THQ announced that Fox Broadcasting has purchased the rights to the game and is planning a computer-animated comedy, based on the game, to air in prime time. Jim Dauterive, previously of King of the Hill, will be a writer and executive producer of the TV version of Destroy All Humans! As of 2012, nothing has been unveiled. The show is also referenced in Destroy All Humans! 2, in the Salad Days bonus video, in which Pox and Crypto reminisce on the past game, and talk about the possibilities of the game's future.
