Check Out The Behemoth's Next Game

I wonder if Game 3 will feature Song 2 on its soundtrack...

The Behemoth has popped out a cool gameplay video and developer walkthrough of one of the new modes in the company's as-yet-untitled next game. It's Game 3's (not its final name) Soul Mode (also not its final name). Look!
            
 
What do you think? I'm looking forward to checking it out at PAX. Jeff Gerstmann on Google+

I.....want......that........ game!

all the game play I've seen so far is so.... uninteresting. 
 
I hope the story is funny though. The first trailer really looked sweet

Man they have done it again. I'm officially hyped.

I'm more excited about checking you out at PAX... I'll be in the corner. muaaaaaaah. alright, I'm done.

It looks like it can be interesting, but man, that guy's voice is dull.

Posted by buzz_clik

Yeah, looks okay. Hopefully it'll turn out to be the new Mario Bros. I'd like to see more, though. PAX is coming to Australia... uh, right?

I agree, but its nice to see some straight up gameplay.

Can't be as averagely entertaining as it looks. I expect more castle crashers style humor and a kick ass game, stoked for this

*ugh*  Linked in HD.  Oh well, it's his site.  I guess I can't really say much...

 How many game modes will be there? Hopefully more than 25.

I love Alien Hominid and Castle Crashers but I can't be the only who's skeptical of this game - it looks like just a mix of mini-games like Mario Party. But I trust The Behemoth- as long as it's not over 800 points oh please oh please please.Hopefully this'll come out in 2010.

I think I'll pass on this one.

Looks pretty fun to me, it's a pretty simple mode but I can imagine it being lots of fun online playing with some friends. The art style and animation are as good as the past 2 games, though I'm not sure about the whole everything being made out of squares level design that I've seen in footage of the game so far. I'm sure it's probably linked to a game mechanic of some kind though.

Posted by kidko

I like the art but I'm not sold on the gameplay so far. Got lots of customization and game modes? Show, don't tell.

Posted by nick69

hopefully it'll be a good game, I really like behemoth's games so far

Posted by piderman

I wouldn't put it past them to just call it 'Game #3' :)

Posted by waleovechkin301

maybe the rest of the game will be cool but that particular mode looked about as fun as watchin my grandma take a shower

Posted by VisariLoyalist

It looks AMAZING!!!!!!

Posted by BenderUnit22

Doesn't grab me that much to be honest. All you seem to do is either run away or chase someone. Maybe the other game modes will be more interesting.
 
Either way can't wait for Castle Crashers on PSN.

Posted by smokeH

Cool Cool, I might be going to TGS so maybe I'll see this in play in the future. Going to be cool!

Posted by crusader8463

Doesn't look fun. Just looks like another generic game to go on live. I have yet to see one of those games that look to be anything other then a crappy flash game with nice graphics that they actually have the balls to try to charge me for.

Posted by CowMuffins

They rehashed the music from the co-op minigame on the Alien Hominid Disc Based game. Lame.

Perhaps as a temporary thing?  I mean the game isn't named, neither is the mode, I am sure music isn't finalized either.
 
Anyway, game looks great and I have a lot of faith in them since Castle Crashers, even with the initial problems that its multiplayer presented, I am sure they learned from that.

Yeah a crappy game with high production values, great and original graphics, and original gameplay!
Wait a second this is the opposite of a bad flash game...

is this a trailer lol.....the game doesnt even have a name, the music was awesome

Posted by ch3burashka

What the fuck is going on?

Posted by Mistergig

Looks boring... Really boring.

<3 Dan Paladin
 
Anyone recognize the music from AH? O: 
 
Game looks random and fun as always. I love the cute yet simple art style

Posted by xxNBxx

man that music is catchy.
Posted by Scooper

It game doesn't really excite me so far but what does excite me is the long legs scoreboard!

Posted by Bigandtasty

Woo-hoo!

Posted by LaszloKovacs

I really want to like The Behemoth, but I honestly can't stand Alien Homonid or Castle Crashers as games. They're really pretty and there's a lot of enthusiasm in the way they're developed, but they just feel shoddily designed and balanced. They feel like nobody playtested them. They'd be fine as a flash game on Newgrounds, but I don't feel like most of what The Behemoth produces is worth actual money.

Posted by IncredibleBulk92

So it's a competitive Mario?  That doesn't really interest me, maybe I'll just wait the 2 years until the trial is out.

Posted by Aeterna

Seems like it's an interesting game.  
And it should be fun, depending on the other modes of course.

Posted by Gunder

Looks incredibly boring.

Posted by Baggykins

looks kindda cool, but the guy talking sounds like he's not having fun at all...

Posted by Diamond

Does look appealing to me either.  A Smash Bros with less production values?  Either way it seems to dependent on small MP rounds...

Posted by toment

These guys seem like they toke a lot.
That is my one comment on this video.

Posted by Kohe321

Looks a little meh in my opinion.

Posted by Vlaphor

I had a chance to play a little bit of it at Comic-Con where it was first revealed, and at this point I can't really say too much about it.  It felt more like a tech demo than a game demo, but what was there was fun.

Posted by MachoFantastico

To be fair this game is still in development and it's wrong to judge the quality of the game though. 
 
Looks interesting, hopefully will see some more flare though. But the fact that this game currently as no name says a lot for how far they are in development so keep that in mind before folks start mouthing off about it.

Posted by Zaapp1

That...looked boring.  I don't see any value from that.  Perhaps it's just that mode or the lack of sound or whatever.  No.

@TrueEnglishGent: you post something, show something off, the audience has the right to mouth off about it. 
you don't want feedback on something, you don't think its ready, then don't post it.
Posted by HT101

I am not psyched for this game even though the first trailer was one of the most awesome displays of awesomeness ever shown.  Hopefully this game is much better than the gameplay I just watched.

Posted by nrain

This guys voice is sooo annoying.
Posted by Tuggah

It would have been better with Stamper doing commentary.

Posted by Lydian_Sel

Love it!!!
 
Everything I see & hear about this game just gets crazier. Can't wait till PAX!!!
