It feels like BattleBlock Theater released just last month…oh, right! It did. Since its release on April 3rd, the game has made over 200,000 BBT owners into performing gem collectors in our theater run by technologically advanced evil felines. We couldn’t have made it this far without the support of the fans, so THANK YOU. We hit 200K on the leaderboards earlier today. Yay!
An interesting fact we’ve discovered is that half of the people who have tried the free demo have purchased the full version of BattleBlock Theater on Xbox LIVE Arcade. If you run across anyone who hasn’t heard of the game yet, share this Story trailer with them and encourage them to check out the Free Demo of BattleBlock Theater. 50/50 chance they won’t be disappointed!
Last month, we had our first Play with the Devs for BattleBlock Theater streamed live on our Twitch channel. We’re going to continue giving you the opportunity to play against some of The Behemoth staff with a Play with the Devs once a month!
The rumblers and arena modes will change every time, but the chance to show off your BBT skills will remain the same. And even better, we’ll be increasing the play time from one hour to TWO HOURS of Play with the Devs! It will be Team Behemoth versus YOU +1.
Or, if you’d prefer to watch and chat with others about The Behemoth games, you can join us at Twitch.TV and toss us a few questions and comments while you’re at it.
Join us next Thursday, May 30th, from 3:00-5:00PM PST. Here’s the cast and crew:
Yesterday, we had our first live stream of Design with the Devs, where our level design team discussed three candidates for the co-op Furbottom’s Features. Today, we reveal the chosen one for solo and co-op! *Drum roll*
Solo Furbottom’s Feature: Welcome Home
Co-Op Furbottom’s Feature: Can’t Compare Love
You can find the detailed descriptions of each playlist when you go to the Furbottom’s Features section of the official BattleBlock Theater website.
And as always, the new solo and co-op Furbottom’s Features bring a new prisoner unlock when you complete either of the two playlists!
For the next two weeks, you’ll be able to get Cat Control, a mini-cat controlling the body of your prisoner. How freaky is that?
