Castle Crashers Remastered is free if you own the original on Xbox 360

I like Castle Crashers a lot, but I wasn't planning on nabbing the remaster for Xbox One. Now I am. Castle Crashers Remastered releases on September 9, 2015. If you own the original game for Xbox 360 and have an active Xbox Live Gold accoun...

The Behemoth's Pit People gets its first trailer

Castle Crashers and BattleBlock Theater developer The Behemoth is making a cooperative turn-based strategy game for Steam and Xbox One. For a long time there, it was tentatively called Game 4, but it finally became Pit People this year. It'...

Rumor claims Castle Crashers and Borderlands are getting backward compatibility

According to some images floating around on the internet this morning, Castle Crashers and Borderlands might be some of the next games coming to Xbox One via backward compatibility. The source of the leak, who apparently also leaked that Mi...

The Behemoth's Game 4 becomes Pit People

The upcoming strategy game from Castle Crashers maker The Behemoth is memorable. Its old temporary name, "Game 4," was not. It's now called Pit People, which is weird but fitting. "Pit People was the name written on the original concept ske...

Castle Crashers Remastered headed to Xbox One

Not even Castle Crashers is safe from the remaster treatment! The Behemoth is upgrading its fun-as-hell beat-'em-up for Xbox One this summer and, sure, I'll play that. Besides gameplay and multiplayer improvements, there's an exclusive new...

20 minutes of the new game from Castle Crashers, BattleBlock dev

Because apparently it's 2008 again, I actually played some Castle Crashers this year, which then got me hankering for some BattleBlock, which I prefer. And I'm thinking the tentatively titled "Game 4," with its strategy leanings, might mak...

Flash game portal Newgrounds turns 20 years old today

These days, Tom Fulp is probably best known for his work with The Behemoth, behind games like Alien Hominid and Castle Crashers. Way back in the day, I knew him as the guy in charge of Newgrounds. I spent a ton of time (probably too much) i...

More games need cupcakes as playable characters

I'm a jerk who totally forgot about The Behemoth's Game 4 despite playing a fun chunk of the tactical role-playing title alongside its narrator, Will Stamper, and loving every minute of it. So to selfishly put it back on my mind -- and to ...

 
Behemoth Game 4
No, the next game from The Behemoth isn't a sequel to Castle Crashers. I mean, yeah, that'd be nice to have one day, but I'm loving how the studio is continuing to try new things. And its next project, the to-be-properly-name...   read

Here's your first look at Behemoth's new game, 'Game 4'

The Behemoth is great at teasing their games, and "Game 4" is no exception. All we had to go off of in the past was a creepy spider character, but now thanks to PAX Prime in Seattle we're getting a clearer picture of what to expect. Destru...

I don't know what The Behemoth's new game is, but it looks cool

Ever since we saw that spider lady teaser for The Behemoth's next game, I've been hooked, desperate to know more. What was that? This new teaser video isn't exactly forthcoming but it seems as if Will Stamper has returned as narrator follo...

Another cupcake-y tease for The Behemoth's next game

Castle Crashers and BattleBlock Theater studio The Behemoth is bringing this thing to RTX this weekend in Austin, Texas. What is it? (Besides a cupcake, obviously.) Dunno. But if you've been following "Game 4," you'll likely recognize the c...

Cats, poop, and repeated failure to communicate

Boba Fett, Blood Dragon, and Battleblock Theater

Hey gang! Unfortunately, we didn't do a live Destructoid Show today, but we still did one. And it's probably a little bit weird.  The big sad news is that Disney carried out Order 66 on LucasArts. Sadder still, Star Wars 1313 was goin...

 
BattleBlock Theater
After nearly five years of development time, BattleBlock Theater is finally here. Following the success of Castle Crashers, it would stand to reason that The Behemoth has some big shoes to fill, and for many, the suspense is killer. So I'll just cut to the chase here: it was worth the wait if you're a platforming fan.   read
