New Behemoth Game Gets Named

Goodbye Game 3, hello BBT.

The Behemoth, the team behind things like Alien Hominid and Castle Crashers, has revealed the name of its upcoming game, which until now has been referred to only as "Game 3."

The game will be called BattleBlock Theater. Here's a trailer!

  
I'm still not entirely sure what this game is going to be, really. Looks neat, though. Here's the information released along with the above video.

Having shipwrecked on a mysterious island you find yourself both betrayed by your best friend Hatty and captured by the locals. All of this is happening while being forced into deadly performances. This however, is just the start of your problems.

BattleBlock Theater is our upcoming third title for the Xbox Live Arcade. Website to follow in the next few days and as we inch closer to the release of the title we’ll be unfolding more of the story online.


I hate it when Hatty betrays me. That jerk. Jeff Gerstmann on Google+

Haha that trailer is the very definition of Epic. Looks like a lot of fun.

Those are some nice smooth 2d animations, better than Castle Crashers. Looking forward to see how and what this turns out to be.

Looks like a pretty fun game.

Posted by ZenaxPure

That was really cool, def need to keep an eye on this title, especially after highly enjoying Castle Crashers

Posted by drowsap

game looks great cant wait till it comes out hopefully comes out faster then castle crashers took them like a year to get that game out

Posted by Romination

It looks like it's going to be a co-op/versus platformer, where it's a race to the finish, but you also have to work alongside your partner for certain puzzles.

newgrounds fo life!

What is even going on in that game?

Posted by Nei

Really like the music from the trailer.

Posted by Milkman

Hopefully this game will ship without the atrocious online problems of Castle Crashers.

Wow hopefully this comes out during the summer. And looks great.

Posted by RagingLion

Looks like there's some serious co-op action that's going to be involved.  I wonder how much the story is just an excuse for these arena puzzles/fights or if it will a significant part of the experience?

Posted by GaZZuM

Can't wait to look forward to this for the next 2 and a half years.

Posted by AniMoney

Can't wait, The Behemoth is one of my favorite developers.

Saaay waaahh this looks totally awesome! Excellent artwork and the gamplay looks intense. But I'm also a bit confused lol. :P

I feel old, I still remember when Dan Paladin was SYNJ.

That last 20 seconds of the vid turned me off to this a lot. Everything else looks good, though.

Posted by Oni

What... is this.

Posted by Linkyshinks

   CoOp puzzle platforming by the looks of things, and It looks fun. The vibrant colours are nice,which is in keeping with the other two.    

Posted by The_Philosopher

Looks great!

Posted by SammydesinasNL

Looks like were going to have another amazing Quick Look.

I'm sold haha. I'm still in love with their art style and the gameplay looks way more fun than CC

Posted by Bigandtasty

Looks competitive. That evokes memories of killing my friends in Four Swords.

Posted by Phantom_Gardener

 Alien Hominid and Castle Crashers where both awesome, looks like this game will be no diffrent

Posted by darkjester74

Great trailer, that ending was great, heehee.

Really enjoyed the overly serious tone of all the music. Looks potentially interesting.

Posted by goodwood

That ending was awesome I just want to be the asshole killing my friends now.

Posted by CornontheCobbe

I like the style of games that these guys created.

Posted by Atomasist

Looks good, hopefully co-op turns out well.

Posted by evanbrau

The Behemoth make a fun game, hopefully this continues that trend. Also more incredibly good music along the same lines as Castle Crashers please.

Posted by isntmebutyou

Looks awesome....Now where is my Castle Crashers on PSN ?? and any mention that his will be there aswell......

Posted by triple07

Looks cool but also looks like it might be more on the level of difficulty as Alien Hominid.

Posted by Don

Looks good. It is the kind of weird I have come to expect from The Behemoth and the type of gameplay that is nearly timeless.

Posted by unreal999

Epic music.

Posted by Sweep

Posted by demontium

looks so good.

Posted by jakechapy

Wow this game looks really smooth

Posted by Kyreo

Looks like... Behemoth meets Super Smash Brothers.  

Posted by TobyD81

Looks like...competitive platforming? Kinda like New SMB Wii, but the objective is to slaughter each other. However it works out, The Behemoth is awesome.

Posted by MikkaQ

Looks pretty neat, the animation and art style as slick as ever. Can't wait to try it out.

Posted by Synthballs

I am still a little confused as to what is going on in this game but, I'm in.

Posted by jakob187

Yep...I'm totally confused.  Definitely gotta play it now.

Posted by RobotHamster

I still haven't gotten castle crashers, should I get it?

If you have someone else to play through it with I would say so.  It is still a fun singleplayer romp but I just think it feels more like the sort of game that is best played with a friend.  I really enjoyed the game, personally.

Not interested... when is Castle Crashers coming to the PS3? :/
