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.

We were invited by Raptr to be a part of their Extra Life marathon, so we’ll be streaming live from their Twitch TV channel on October 24th. Come watch us play our in-development game (tentatively titled Game 4)!

See what we’ve been working on for the past few months for Game 4 and chat with us during the live stream!

Prize packages will include a Game 4 Cupcake/Spidaur tee and Behemoth scarf, plus your choice of Alien Hominid HD on XBLA, Castle Crashers, or BattleBlock Theater game code (if you already own all three games, then you can give it to a friend!).

  • Your entry must be your own creation (or your group’s, parent’s, family’s).
  • Only new costumes and decoration entries will be accepted (entries that were submitted in previous years will not be eligible).

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!
