Remember that game from 2010?

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 delay, to the point where a lot of people have either forgotten about it, or don't care.

There's still no release date, but The Behemoth does say that they're "hitting the home stretch," so hopefully an announcement should come any week now. Right now the only new news besides the fact that the game is finally almost done is that it obtained a T for Teen rating in the US for "blood and violence."

Yep, sounds like a Behemoth game.

Here's the bar napkin pitch -- or at least high school textbook margin doodle pitch -- for BattleBlock Theater, which just recently saw its Steam release. The Behemoth posted Art Director Dan Paladin's sketches to its site. Pretty neat to see some of the early concepts that were floating around before hot code was ever fed through computers. And it's also so damn cute.
BattleBlock Theater came out this past week on Steam, and there's a ton of discounts to take advantage of if you haven't picked it up just yet. For instance if you already own Castle Crashers you'll get BattleBlock for 35% o...
When BattleBlock Theater originally released last year for Xbox 360, we loved it. The cooperative platforming, secret-hunting, and unmistakable Behemoth style came together into one solid, surprisingly large package. Soon, it...

I'm still playing (and loving) BattleBlock Theater, and the time has come for player created playlists to shine. As such, developer The Behemoth has provided fairly detailed instructions on how to get your playlist featured o...
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.
For many Behemoth fans, the wait for BattleBlock Theater has felt like an eternity. In some ways, it really has been, as these past four or five years have been approximately half of a console's lifecycle. But what went on du...
Yes, the wait has been quite long but now it's almost over. The Behemoth's BattleBlock Theater will be out on April 3, 2013. Hey, that's my birthday! You'll be able to pick up the game on Xbox Live Arcade for 1200 Microsoft ...
