Pit People Steam Closed Beta starts next week, September 28th!

We try not to post too many non-BBT announcements in this hub, but we're too excited for our upcoming event and really wanted to share this info:



Our Pit People Steam Closed Beta begins next week on September 28th! Pit People is our latest game in development. It's a fast-paced, turn-based, co-op adventure featuring the voice talents of Will Stamper (narrator in BattleBlock Theater).

If you haven’t signed up for the Steam Closed Beta, you can still register by going to http://www.pitpeople.com/beta/steam

For those who Beta Tested for the Xbox One closed beta, the signup does not carry over, so you’ll need to register for the Steam Closed Beta as well. Just make sure to sign up with all the same info that you did for Xbox One and you should automatically qualify.

The Steam Beta will include all or most of the work we’ve been doing throughout the Xbox One Beta build running, so if you played the Xbox One beta last week and join us on Steam next week then you’re sure to run into new unlocks, areas, maps, balance changes and features within. A whole weapon category for humans was completely rehauled into something NEW! Whoa! See you there!

Immerse yourself in this mind bending tale of treachery as you use your arsenal of weapon-tools to battle your way through hundreds of levels in order to discover the puzzling truth behind BattleBlock Theater.

I'm not usually one for such zany comical games but this one is an awful lot of fun as well as being a tremendous pain in the ♥♥♥.

A nutty side scrolling platformer with a fun twist, comes with a single player adventure in which you have to escape your captors by putting on a show of your untimely death over and over again until you eventually succeed, using a slew of weapons at your disposal you will overcome the problems in your path or use them to royally screw your online chums.

Controls are simplistic by nature but best optimised by use of a controller as well the UI which is minimal which doesn't distract from the gameplay.

For the completionists out there I will warn you the game can get incredibly irratating on later levels and at times you will want to nuke your computer out of frustration but sometimes the juice is worth the squeeze, as previously mentioned the game has multiplayer and you can play with others in various gamemodes, it can become total anarchy but you will find it hard to stop yourself from laughing all around an enjoyable experience for most age groups.

if you hate slow platforming games like me, your not gonna like this game.
the comedy wasnt that enjoyable to me, and playing with friends doesnt really make it that much funner.
if you like platformers, buy it because its a great game in the genre; otherwise, stay away.

Your friends will hate you for this game.

9,5/10

Thats the summary of this simple - but later more complex - game. Completing levels and chapters require understanding of a few mechanisms, being aware of the fact that game actually hates you, being pooped out by weird bird - at this point it starts to be very weird - being harassed by toasts and of course fighting giant cats! But if your PC is still in usable condition after tons of rages, you will see the cutscene! Its definetly one of the weirdes - but most ridiculous - things you will ever see.

At some features it still look like online game, sometimes its too hard but its totally awesome game thats sin not to recommend. And if you have a band of idiots (aka. bros), there are very few games that are so entertainming like this.

The Behemoth means high quality

Everything has already been said, all i can do is suggesting you to buy BattleBlock Theater. The game is really - and i mean, really - fun, frantic, eyecandy and with an huge amount of content. Oh, and completely co-op.

I just have to say this is one of my favorite games of all time.

The campaign levels are brilliantly designed for non-stop fun,and they go with a hilarious story that never gets old.

There is also alot of collectables/customization you can obtain. which if youre into that stuff its pretty great.

And this is fun to play alone but also fun to play with friends (if you have any) in the co-op campaign or even online Vs games.

after you beat all the base game levels you can either create you own or play other players created levels.

Over all this game is A Harambe out of Dank Memes

FOR BATTLEBLOCK THEATER
Battleblock Theater is an amazing game developed by amazing developers. It is challenging for hardcore players (via insane mode and some of Furbottom's Features) while also being a good casual couch game for friends and family. The co-op meets even at the level of Portal 2, (but does NOT exceed it, Portal 2 is the best) and the narrator, Will Stamper, is absolutely hilarious. I had quite a few laughs during the cinematics. All in all, Battleblock Theater is one of the best out there. I suggest it for anyone and everyone.

If you do enjoy it, check out Castle Crashers, a 2D side scroller indie made by the same developer,
The Behemoth.

BattleBlock Theater®
Great arcade game creators of Castle Crashers with a combination of platformer and puzzle game. The plot is simple and very funny, told by a narrator. In the game, we get on a mysterious island inhabited by evil cats, which are holding their prisoners that they took part in a deadly performances. Our goal is to survive and make it through to the grand final. The game features single player, co-op and two difficulty levels, normal and insane. The Arena features online co-op or versus in nine different modes. You can also play the levels made by other players or create your własnt track with obstacles. In the game you can also unlock new characters and weapons for diamonds or yarn balls collected during the game. Battleblock is a great production, a great voice of the narrator, brilliant soundtrack, beautiful and colorful graphics and great controls make this game really good game. In my opinion this is one of the best platform games I've ever played and what I am able to recommend.
