The dead rise again in this BattleBlock Theater update


The fine folks over at The Behemoth have shined the spotlight on a new set of prisoners for the upcoming Battleblock Theater. The two new prisoners are the undead duo of Prisoner #10334 (a.k.a The Mummy) and Prisoner #10401 (a.k.a. The Skull).

According to the biography of Prisoner #10334, The Mummy was a grocer some time ago when it developed a terrible case of plastybolsaphobia, the fear of plastic bags. The Skull however seems to be getting a reputation for being a "poor, lazy Mummy" or a "naked hobo-mummy", if you will, for its poor choice of battle apparel. Along with introducing the new prisoners, the video also showcases some of the creative ways that players can "cooperate" together in order to get more gems or to get to out of reach locations.

The Behemoth has always been one of my favorite indie studios, ever since I first played Alien Hominid. Their character designs and humor have made them stand out from the crowd and I can't wait to give Battleblock Theater a go in 2012. Plus, I have to stick up for all my Skull brethren out there. Where do you stand on The Mummy versus The Skull debate?
