Castle Crashers Steam - Over 1 million players strong!



Since 2008 Castle Crashers has been the largest, most successful game we've ever created. We are proud to announce that just recently Castle Crashers Steam has passed the 1 million mark, pushing the cumulative total to 5 million downloads across all platforms!

In celebration of this 5 million milestone, we are going back to 2005 when we started working on Castle Crashers.

Back in 2005, Dan Paladin, our art director, started sketching up ideas for our 2D multiplayer adventure. Our previous BattleBlock Theater sketch blog post was well received, so we thought it’d be fun to show off some of the original creations for Castle Crashers.

Click HERE to see the rest of the sketches. Some of these ideas got slightly altered before the game finished development, and some of them didn’t make it to the final version! Can you point out which ones made it in?

A great game to play with a room full of friends, a pizza, and some drinks. The game is decent by itself, but with friends in a local coop setting, it's wonderful. The game is mostly you verses monsters, but occasionally you have to duke it out amongst yourselves for the hand of a lovely maiden. It has wonderful items, and challenging gameplay. I'd highly recommend picking up a 4-pack on sale to play with your buddies some time.

Side scrolling beat ‘em up adventure that is amazing solo or co-op with amazing animation style and smooth game play. I couldn’t honestly ask for more… well other than I do wish there was a way to readjust your skill points in a way other than a character reset, but that’s no big deal it’s kind of fun to start fresh.
