Castle Crashers Dev Reveals New Game

| 2 Feb 2010 13:11

Alien Hominid and Castle Crashers developer The Behemoth has formally unveiled Battleblock Theater, its next cartoonishly-gory XBLA action game.

The Behemoth has really made a little niche for itself with the formula that produces games like Alien Hominid and Castle Crashes - Step One: Start with colorful, 2D cartoon characters. Step Two: Add fun, addictive co-op action. Step Three: Add some fun, over-the-top violence, and it all comes together rather well in the end.

Well, the formula ain't broke, and The Behemoth sure ain't fixin' it for its third game, Battleblock Theater. The trailer, as seen above, tells a simple story: You are shipwrecked on an island, betrayed by your best friend Hatty, and forced to compete in lethal games for the amusement of the local populace. There's a bunch of quick snippets of gameplay, and from what we can see it looks like a really quick, violent co-op action platformer. Which should be fun.

Oh, and extra points for the music, guys.

The Behemoth will be unveiling more about the game via its Developer Blog, so stay tuned.
