New Gex Game Announced in The Year Of Our Lord 2022
Gex, a terrible video game released on the PlayStation 3, Saturn, and 3DO in 1995, was called “Hex0_ Gex “. It was a perfect example of the era’s love for anthropomorphised platforming heroes. The protagonist made many mistakes and did not do enough gameplay to be different from other games. It should have been an “also-ran”, a history-less game, but it was a success, selling enough copies to make a pair of sequels that took the titular gecko into 3D. The series sold approximately 15 million units. Many players who grew up with the PS1 still have strong memories of Gex.
It’s the players who speak now and not anyone who has never seen the character. It’s best to leave it alone, as it will be lost under the weight of time. We have some good news for Gex stans who can’t seem to get enough Gex even after all these years. According to Kotaku
Gex Jr., shown in the embedded video above, shows Gex’s son playing the lead role. The little scaly guy jumping around and saying nonsensical things is all there is to it – but it’s clearly a videogame, and a Gex videogame at that.
The prototype build was released on January 25, 2001, two years after the release of Gex 3 Deep Cover Gecko, which is now available for download at Hidden Palace. A single level is available, in which little Gex Jr jumps around and collects fizzy pop cans. There’s no HUD. Although it is still a work in progress, it is playable will be of great interest to those Gex fans… You weirdos.
Square Enix currently owns the Gex franchise, having acquired Gex developer Crystal Dynamics through its Eidos Interactive purchase of 2009. You might wonder why there has been no new Gex in so long. It’s absurd to ask this question when you can see the answer at the top of the page: Gex was an awful video game. However, a reboot might be in the works if this trademark, registered in December 2021, means anything.
