Remember that one time we saw that teaser image for Battleblock Theater and got all excited? It feels like that was ages ago. Well, that was because it was nearly three years ago, and the game has been hit with delay after de...

BattleBlock Theater is all about being cool

BattleBlock Theater, by The Behemoth, has humor, murder, cuteness and now ice. A new video has just been released with some gameplay footage that introduces prisoner #10330 and the ice levels. While I would have liked some more voiced story trailers, this one shows off the game, so I suppose I'm okay with it. The real question here is, can that guy narrate my life?

A hi-res, hand-drawn, downloadable game in which cute characters are imprisoned by maniacal cats who force them to act in lethal plays for their amusement. Sounds like a game from The Behemoth to me!

I played Battleblock Theater at PAX this weekend and was so impressed I made sure it got a Destructoid Game of the Show nomination. It was just that much silly, outrageous, beautifully violent fun!

The BattleBlock Theater intro is basically fantastic

The Behemoth bringing monster arcade cabinets to PAX East

It certainly would not be a Penny Arcade Expo without The Behemoth, and PAX East is no exception. We've just been given the juicy details on what the studio's setup will entail. I had to shove a few kids and old ladies out of...

PAX 10: Long and Holmes take on BattleBlock Theater

After a few confusing twists and turns, Tara Long and I finally got to take a crack at BattleBlock Theater. The game has a very classic feel to it. In days of old, developers couldn't make games that included 2D platforming,...
