BattleBlock Theater Steam now supports Mac OS

We already knew that the apple was going to fall into your laps at some point (or on your head if you’re Isaac Newton) and now it has landed…

Huh? Alright, that one was a bit of a stretch but all that matters now is that BattleBlock Theater Steam is now available for Mac OS X 10.7 and above! Apple consumers, rejoice!

If you already had BattleBlock Theater Steam then you should be able to open up your account on a Mac computer and install our game. If you don’t own it yet, then today may be the perfect day to get it!

BattleBlock Theater Steam is part of the Monster Summer Sale. It’s currently also part of a Flash Sale that runs until 10AM PDT on 6/19/2015 that puts it at 90% OFF the original price! This is some serious news and we hope you understand the gravity of it.

No? Too far? Forget it…

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! Up to two players in Story, and four in Arena.

  • 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.

This game is so fabulous!

I finished it after +50 hs and made me so happy when finally I rescued Hatty from the hands of the cats cute cats

- Pros:

• Prisoners to unlock, and weapons too.

• Workshop = More content.

• Differents game modes and multiplayer.

• Insane mode, makes the game more hard, that means you will have to think before do something, otherwise you will have to start all again.

• Catchy soundtrack, really catchy.

• Best Steam trailer ever created:


- Cons:

• Who cares?!

- The story is all about you and your friends went to an abandoned ship , and one of your friend named " Hatty Hattington " got captured by the security cats.. And they let hatty wore a mysterious hat..And hatty went evil. So you must rescue hatty from all obstacles and even security cats.
