BattleBlock Theater coming to PC, beta starts this month

The Behemoth's long-awaited follow-up to Castle Crashers was BattleBlock Theater--a game that our review says "may have bitten off more than it can comfortably chew." Still, the ambitious platformer is large enough that players can "enjoy its likable, zany sensibilities throughout."

After a release on Xbox Live Arcade last year, The Behemoth has announced a new PC release.

BattleBlock Theater review: battles blocked

BattleBlock Theater review: battles blocked

Following the release of Castle Crashers, The Behemoth was riding high as a stalwart of the 2D old guard. It had produced a beat-em-up that lovingly paid homage to its predecessors and injected it with a dose of Monty-Python-styled inanity. Nearly five years later, the studio has finally produced its follow-up, BattleBlock Theater. It leans less on its roots, and while greater ambition gets the better of it, it's hard not to cheer on more of the developer's spirit.

Behemoth's BattleBlock Theater Delayed; Will Not Release in 2010

BattleBlock Theater, the third game from The Behemoth (Castle Crashers, Alien Hominid), has been delayed and pushed right out of 2010 as the game "is becoming so much more than we ever expected."

It feels like no other game out there - there's a little more r&d than we thought and lots of new ground to break. This means we will not be releasing in 2010.
