Developers The Behemoth are responsible for Alien Hominid, Castle Crashers and most recently BattleBlock Theater. Our Marsh Davies liked the latter when he leapt about its puzzley-platformy levels back in May. He was especially fond of its narrator, so “heroically entertaining it might singlehandedly save a much lesser game than this, interjecting with exclamations that are by turns snarky, sinister and silly.”

That same voice returns in this short teaser for Behemoth’s next game, currently only known as Game 4. It seems to be set in a world plunged into chaos by a giant bear colliding with Earth. Sweet!

Since 2008 Castle Crashers has been the largest, most successful game we've ever created. We are proud to announce that just recently Castle Crashers Steam has passed the 1 million mark, pushing the cumulative total to 5 million downloads across all platforms!

In celebration of this 5 million milestone, we are going back to 2005 when we started working on Castle Crashers.

Back in 2005, Dan Paladin, our art director, started sketching up ideas for our 2D multiplayer adventure. Our previous BattleBlock Theater sketch blog post was well received, so we thought it’d be fun to show off some of the original creations for Castle Crashers.

Click HERE to see the rest of the sketches. Some of these ideas got slightly altered before the game finished development, and some of them didn’t make it to the final version! Can you point out which ones made it in?

Just in case you haven't seen it already, we've added a new Arrange to Play Discussion Board so you can find new play dates. Post there if you are looking for Castle Crashers buddies.


Happy slashing!

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.

Are you a fan of Castle Crashers Steam? If you said "yes," "yeah," "yeehaw," "hai," "fo shizzle," or any other variation of agreement, then you may be interested to know that we're bringing BattleBlock Theater to Steam for Windows!

Watch our announcement trailer and by the time you’re finished with it, you’ll have one word stuck in your head all day: STEAM!!!

New Features

  • Weapon switching! Players can now switch between a primary and secondary weapon in game!
  • New Cat Guard enemies throughout Story Mode.
  • Steam Workshop integration for sharing user created levels.
  • Steam Inventory integration for trading! This allows users to trade and sell weapons, prisoners, gems and yarn via Steam.
  • X input, Direct Input, and Keyboard/Mouse support.

BattleBlock Theater Steam (version) is going to manifest moments in your mind you never thought would be possible. Don’t believe us? Try the game yourself before it even makes its official release on Steam.

From March 24, 2014 to March 31, 2014, we’ll be holding a Closed Beta for this upcoming PC edition of our game. A Closed Beta means you’ll need to register to get a beta key, but anyone 13-years-old and up are welcome to sign up! Sign ups end THIS FRIDAY, March 21st.

The Beta start date is of course subject to change. We’re still updating and testing a bunch of items, and in the event something doesn’t feel right we might adjust the beta start. Regardless of this, we encourage you to register now.

Another exciting way of playing Castle Crashers Steam Edition is coming your way! This summer, Gestureworks Gameplay 2 will allow players to turn their Android phones and tablets turn into fully customizable Virtual Controllers for games on PC.

Hack and slash through the Castle Crashers world with up to 4 friends using your touch devices!

“Version 2 allows up to four players to be connected for use in co-op and multiplayer games. While the Virtual Controllers can emulate the joystick, buttons, D-pad, and other controls of a standard game control, the easy-to-use drag and drop interface allows for so much more customization. Opacity, size, and sensitivity can all be adjusted and there are even game-specific skins available such as for Castle Crashers with each of the four controllers showing a unique color and character from the game.”

Read more about Gestureworks Gameplay 2 and see video footage on their blog post.
