We’re one of many developers who will be streaming live between October 24th – 25th, 2014.


Our Fundraising Goals
It’s our sincere hope that you’ll find it in your heart to support our efforts with a monthly pledge or one-time gift that will go directly to Rady Children’s Hospital through the CMN.

About This Game

Shipwrecked. Captured. Betrayed. Forced to perform for an audience of cats? Yes, all that and more when you unlock BattleBlock Theater! There’s no turning back once you've started on your quest to free over 300 of your imprisoned friends from evil technological cats. 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.

If solo acts aren't your style, go online or bring a buddy couch-side to play a thoroughly co-optimized quest or enter the arenas. The game also includes a level editor so you can craft your own mind bending trials!

Key Features


  • CO-OPTIONAL GAMEPLAY - Work together... or not. Online Play! Couch Hi-Fives! Best Game Ever!

  • ARENAS: Whether you're king crowning or whale chasing, BattleBlock Theater performers have 8 arena modes to teach their enemies the real meaning of stage fright!

  • INSANE MODE: One life to live doesn’t just happen on screen, it can happen on stage as well. Test your skills in the ultimate campaign challenge.

  • UNIQUE ANIMATIONS: New art created for the Steam version of BattleBlock Theater! Cat guard makes its way to center stage.


  • OVER 450 LEVELS! - Single player, multiplayer, arena, we have more levels than Hatty can count on his finger hands.

  • 300 PRISONERS TO FREE! - Having been captured by the native feline population, it’s up to YOU to liberate them! Earn gems to free your friends by participating in deadly, gladiatorial plays.

  • THEATRICAL WEAPONRY AND COMBAT! - Jump, push, pull and punch your way to victory! If that doesn’t work you can explode, freeze, poison, or digest a baby! Plus, you’ll be able to bring up two weapons at a time in a game and swap quickly.

  • CREATE AND SHARE LEVELS - Create works of art in our Level Editor and then share them with all your friends (or strangers). Over 20 interactive block types galore!

You know that point when you are mentally exhausted or slaphappy or a teenager? That's usually when you want shut your brain off and play something amusing and stupid. If you can find a buddy in a similar state, play this game together.

The trick to enjoying this game is to not take it seriously. Learn to enjoy killing and being killed. If you can pull that off, you will laugh until you cry. Play for about an hour or so and then quit. Come aother day when you both are out of it again. Then just repeat this cycle.

If you don't enjoy poop jokes, stay away. If blowing youself up again and again makes you smile, this is the game for you.

Great platformer. Fun addictive, the level design will want to make you keep playing as it is never repetetive. As the story goes on it does get harder and harder but never seemed to make me rage often. The story takes around ten hours to complete. Then there is the dozen modes available in the arena, I have tried out a few and so far versing the A.I probably isn't nearly as good as co-op. Almost forgot, the animation is great, most PC's should have no problem with running this game. I felt there was a good flow between levels, the art is also spot on. Overall a great clever game definitely worth the price.

I didn't know too much about this game going into it other than it was from the same company as Castle Crashers. Having played hours upon hours of Crashers on XBLA and on Steam with friends and just enjoying the hell out if it I figured why not give it a shot. I am really glad I did, I played through the first stage by myself chuckled at the narration and enjoyed the gameplay and thought good game. Then I grabbed a friend and we started the first stage over in co-op and bam Amazing Game not only is it a great co-op platformer but the countless number of ways you can F*ck over your buddy adds hilarity to the situation that makes even a simple puzzle an amazing amount of fun as you both try to find some way to kill the other guy.
Got thrown into a ice block, slid into a lava block, launched onto a fan and blow into spike 50 yards away. 10/10

If you've got friends to play it with (the game supports online AND local multiplayer/coop) then this game is a BLAST. While the game is still terrific playing by yourself, the most fun is had with friends. For the $15 price tag this ones a no-brainer

"BATTLE BLOCK THEATER IS A GAME TO MAKE LOTS OF NEW FRIENDS. AND ENEMIES... AND FRIENEMIES!" - Narrator

Its a great platformer with unique level design and a triple A+ narrator, full of grouchy cats and traps. Its worth every money spent on it.
