April 8th, 2014

This weekend we’ll be at PAX East for another three day adventure with our fans! In the last two weeks, we’ve revealed a few new items coming to our gift shop at Booth 512: Pinny Arcade Pins, BattleBlock Theater hats, and Troll t-shirts!

Now it’s time to reveal a bit of our schedule during this year’s PAX East:

On Friday and Saturday, you’ll have a chance to get your Behemoth gear signed by Tom Fulp and Will Stamper. Tom is a co-founder of the Behemoth and programmer for Alien Hominid & Castle Crashers. Will is best known as the narrator of BattleBlock Theater, but also sprinkled his talent in various parts of Castle Crashers including song writing, voice acting for the Ice King, and voice acting for the Industrial King.

Join us Friday, April 11th, and Saturday, April 12th @ PAX East Booth 512 between 2PM-4PM for the free autograph sessions. Our team will also be on the show floor if you just want to ask us a question or say hello.

Introduction:

Castle Crashers was my personal favorite Xbox Live Arcade game when it was first released back in 2008. The Behemoth continued to give this game more life with it's DLC of character's that had unique abilities, animal orbs that would accompany you throughout the game, and weapons that would improve your character's growth (or vice versa if you are looking for a challenge). The game was later ported to the Playstation Network with exclusive mini-games in 2010. Castle Crashers eventually was ported onto Steam, but was ported badly onto PC on launch; however, the game was redeemed to be fun and playable again after The Behemoth made necessary updates.

Verdict:

This title is a hack and slash RPG, and has been widely recieved by many gamers who appreciate the genre (even those who don't). The game can feel a bit tedious at times, but as you level your character(s) the gameplay will feel slightly different before it tends to get repetitive once again. However, the game keeps the game fresh upon every level with unique scenary, opponents, and even jokes. If you plan on purchasing this title it's obviously more fun to play it with friends then it is with complete strangers, so try to convince your friends (and if they've convinced you to buy it listen to them). Completing the title will be a mission, but personally I think that's half the fun of trying to unlock every single character, find every animal orb and weapons. Give this game a try by downloading the demo. If you find the game a bit pricey than wait for a discount (or a Humble Indie Bundle that has this game packaged with it).

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.

Castle Crashers , one of the best indie games I bought.

The gameplay is realy fun with a gamepad .

The co-op is amazing , when it is a 4 man co-op its just amazing fun .

They are many pets and weapons you can collect and the amount of fun is just too big !

The game is usualy on nice sales for 3.74 $ so you should totaly buy it , I also reccomend buying the DLCs because of the

weapons and nice charecters .

So my rating will be 9/10 would play .
