Throw cheese in StarCraft II as a cartoon overlord

StarCraft II's third and final expansion, the Protoss-themed Legacy of the Void, came out a little less than a year ago. Since then, players looking to freshen up their game could play a Nova-centric side story, but that's about it.&nb...

Pit People beta invites going out, check your inbox

I don't really know what to make of Pit People. Like most Behemoth games it's kind of just on my radar, but once I've actually gotten my hands on it I'll probably fall in love. A few of us will get that chance soon, as the developer ha...

Castle Crashers upgraded on Steam, too

Castle Crashers Remastered was a nice upgrade for Xbox One players, and now The Behemoth is bringing some of those improvements to the Steam version of the game in a free update. New mini-game: Back Off Barbarian Uncapped frame rate (FPS...

Review: Castle Crashers Remastered

In 2008, Castle Crashers rekindled my dormant love of beat-'em-ups. It had imaginative characters, strange and varied locales, and the four-player co-op was great at encouraging friendly competition. There wasn't much else like it back then...

The Behemoth's Pit People gets its first trailer

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...

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 ...

The Behemoth's Game 4 is the strangest SRPG I've ever played

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-named "Game 4," is ...

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...

BattleBlock Theater is now on Games With Gold

BattleBlock Theater is a great platformer (especially when played cooperatively), and now it's free on Games with Gold on the Xbox 360. Gotham City Imposters is out, and BattleBlock is in, with all its "buckle your pants" glory (f...

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...
