Review: Castle Crashers Remastered

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

20 minutes of the new game from Castle Crashers, BattleBlock dev
