Hello World!
We’re on a not-so-secret mission to save kids and we need your help.

On October 24th, 2014, we’ll be participating in this huge worldwide celebration of the social impact of gamers of all kinds from video games to board games and tabletop RPG’s! This is our first time participating in Extra Life, and we’ve joined Raptr’s Team to support their efforts to fundraise for the Children’s Miracle Network (CMN). 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. We hope your donations will help us hit our goal of $1,000 raised from the community for this amazing organization. In addition to your generous donation, we will match your donations! Our goal is $1,000 from donors like you, but we will match up to $2,000 of the total contributions of all donors combined.

Your donation is tax-deductible and ALL PROCEEDS go to help kids. Click HERE to donate now.

Our Raffle Prize
On top of being an awesome person for supporting a great cause, if you donate $10 or more through our fundraising page you’ll get entered into our raffle for a new mystery plush. We’ll reveal the plush’s identity during our October 24th Extra Life stream on Raptr’s channel.

Make sure to click “Allow participant to see my email address” when you donate if you want to be entered into the raffle. If you do not want to be entered into the raffle, then you can donate anonymously.

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!
