The amount of time spent perfecting a speedrun can be off the charts since speedrunners will learn the ins and outs of a game to find the fastest ways to the end. We certainly respect all the hours any player puts into the games we’ve made. We’ve seen numbers as high as 300 in hours spent playing BattleBlock Theater Steam!

Today, two players are putting themselves up to the challenge of finishing BattleBlock Theater Steam within 2 hours and 45 minutes while playing cooperative story mode. PJDicesare & MechaRichter are playing in the 2015 Awesome Games Done Quick (AGDQ) event on January 5th, 5:00PM PST (Event time subject to change). AGDQ 2015 is a live speedrunning event that will benefit the Prevent Cancer Foundation.

During the BattleBlock Theater segment, our co-founder & art director, Dan Paladin, and our game narrator, Will Stamper, will be joining the event via Skype. During the live stream of the event, Dan and Will are going to give dev commentary along with the host of the event and two other speedrun commentators. You’ll be able to ask us questions while watching PJDicesare & MechaRichter go as fast as they can through the treacherous Theater stages. Not only are they playing the full game, but their goal is running the 100% category, which involves getting an A++ rating on every single stage, including secret stages. They'll be collecting every gem and yarn in the game, and getting the time bonus, in under 2:45.

Come join in on the fun! Do what we’re doing and watch from home or your office! You can watch on the Games Done Quick Twitch page or watch it on their website.

Finally, since this is a charity event, we hope that you’ll consider donating to the Prevent Cancer Foundation through the Games Done Quick website. There are several incentives and prizes that you could get if you donate.

See you all tonight at the stream of BattleBlock Theater!

Happy Monday, Everyone!

Today, we're excited to bring you an update with a couple big changes in BattleBlock Theater. One of the additions could potentially affect over 143 million people -- according to the 2013 census of the Russian population. (Or even more since we're not accounting for those people who are learning or have learned the language living outside of the country!) Here's what we're looking at in BattleBlock Theater Update 1.2:

  • Russian Language Support

    We've been working on this for a while now and thank our Russian fans for their patience and continuous support. Еще раз большое спасибо за вашу поддержку!

  • Update to the Online Menu UI

    This will improve searching and viewing different types of available online games.

  • Minor bugs fixes

We will continue working on ways to improve the game and we are grateful for your support & understanding. If you experience any unexpected issues after this update, please feel free to let us know in the forums or in a support ticket that you can create here: http://www.thebehemoth.com/support/ticket

Thanks again and happy holidays!
