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, first-person shooter segments, and massive cut scenes. Instead, they had to take one central gameplay mechanic, and try to use in as many ways possible in order to keep things interesting.
That's BattleBlock Theater in a nutshell. One idea (beat on your friends) played out in multiple ways. Poop, gold, whales, and pyramid heads all have their part in that.
Tara Long took the lead on this video, and she rocked it. Give her some love, fellas.
