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...   read

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...   read

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...   read

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 ...   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...   read
