The Behemoth reveals ... BattleBlock Theater


9:35 PM on 02.01.2010



The Behemoth has finally revealed the name and premise for its long-awaited Xbox Live Arcade game. The follow-up to Castle Crashers has now officially been named, and we all now know to look forward to BattleBlock Theater!

Having shipwrecked on a mysterious island you find yourself both betrayed by your best friend Hatty and captured by the locals. All of this is happening while being forced into deadly performances. This however, is just the start of your problems.

BattleBlock Theater is our upcoming third title for the Xbox Live Arcade. Website to follow in the next few days and as we inch closer to the release of the title we’ll be unfolding more of the story online.

Check out the official debut trailer and let us know what you think. This is looking to be a pretty hot one, with typical Behemoth humor and some rather awesome looking gameplay. Very much looking forward to it -- here's hoping there won't be any online issues that Microsoft takes ten years to patch this time!

The mad cute doodles that birthed BattleBlock Theater

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.more

Review: 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.more
