The Behemoth Names Game 3 : Welcome Battleblock Theatre

1 min read


The Behemoth, delightful developers behind downloadable titles Alien Hominid HD and Castle Crashers have finally named their third game – which for now will be headed to XBox Live Arcade. The game which has been going under the prosaic placeholder name of “Game 3” is now called Battleblock Theatre.

Having shipwrecked on a mysterious island you find yourself both betrayed by your best friend Hatty and captured by the locals. All of this is happening while being forced into deadly performances. This however, is just the start of your problems.

I’ll be honest – I have no idea what’s going on in the trailer you’ll find after the jump, but it looks to have equal parts co-operative and competitive play, rolled in to one – like the strange and beautiful lovechild of LittleBigPlanet and Super Smash Bros.

Editor. I'm old, grumpy and more than just a little cynical. One day, I found myself in possession of a NES, and a copy of Super Mario Bros 3. It was that game that made me realise that games were more than just toys to idly while away time - they were capable of being masterpieces. I'm here now, looking for more of those masterpieces.
