FeaturePost_BARBARIAN
Oh. That’s a new look for you! Barbaric much?
 
With Castle Crashers upcoming anniversary on August 27th, we thought it would be appropriate to give you Barbarian once you finished the BattleBlock Theater Furbottom’s Features! If you play through the new featured co-op playlist then Barbarian will unlock at the end of your journey.
 
In XBLA : “reflexes” by “dentrolee”
 
In Steam : Cyanile by Cyanite

 

As an added bonus, you’ll be getting Little Feets (teehee) as soon as you load up an online area in the game. You get to got for two brawny looks this week!

What’s this?? Game 4 is upon us!!
 
Shortly before the release of BattleBlock Theater we started working on something new. We schemed up a bunch of concepts and picked our strongest one. From there we fleshed out the lone survivor prototype!!! As it grew stronger and stronger, we polished it, furnished it with delights, and added (gluten free?) sprinkles. Yes, as the chicken dictates, this game is of a genre we haven’t covered before and seek to breathe a new flavor into. Maybe you can find a hint in the video below about which genre it is??
 
What we’ve ended up with is something we are all very proud of. I am confident you’ll get a kick out of this one. So we’ve decided to bring it to PAX Primeand you can play it! As usual we’ll want your feedback to steer the process. I cannot wait to show you guys what we’ve got!

 

Until that time, please enjoy the introduction video to this grand and mysterious adventure………. Stay tuned for more info at PAX Prime Booth 3003!!!

 

END BRAIN SEQUENCE 0459672-B

FeaturePost_JonnyFour

Today we’ve released Jonny Four on Steam and re-released on XBLA. All you need to do to find him in BattleBlock Theater is load up the game, head towards an online area, and he should unlock!

 

But be warned! Don’t get electrocuted by the lasers when you’re traversing the uncharted territories of the theater. No one likes to get zapped, right? Look alive, Jonny fii–… Jonny Four!

 

Oh, and for you curious folks out there: we will be resuming new community playlists for the Arena Feature starting in two weeks! Today is the last day for the community to submit their Arena Playlists for the Creation Contest (enter by 3PM PST on August 15th!), which means we will resume it by featuring the winner of the contest!

This PAX Prime, we’ve brought two new pins that will be available to purchase at our booth. We will also be bringing back Series 1 and Series 2 pins!
 
You can find all of the pins in our Chonku Chonku machines at the booth. Series 1 and Series 2 will continue to be blind boxed, but these two new pins in Series 3 will not be randomized. Series 3 pins will be in a Chonku Chonku machine purely for cupcakes or purely for spacebears.

Alien Hominid 2 Happy birthday to our adorable Flash buddy, Alien Hominid! A short flash version of the game first came out on Newgrounds in 2002 and has been played over 20 million times! Since 2002, we’ve brought the game to numerous consoles including Nintendo GameCube, Playstation 2, Xbox, Game Boy Advance and finally Xbox 360.
 
In honor of this anniversary, we have unlocked a few special items in BattleBlock Theater so you can play as the alien or FBI guy!

 

FBIguy

Here’s how to unlock these characters:
 
XBLA Players:
–Alien : If you own Alien Hominid HD on Xbox 360, then you will automatically unlock the Alien in BattleBlock Theater once you’ve received an achievement in both games. This is forever-ever.

 

–FBI Agent1 : Just head towards an online area in BattleBlock Theater and this prisoner will be freed. This is a limited time only! Get it within the next few days of this post.

 

Steam Players:
–Alien : Since Alien Hominid is not available on Steam, this is one of the rare chances to get this prisoner into your entourage! Get it soon!

 

–FBI Agent1 : This friendly foe is also available for a limited time on Steam. Get it soon and battle it out with the Alien in the arena!
 
Unite the extraterrestrials with the felines!

Here it is! Can you feel the excitement that is National Underwear Day? Weeee can!

 

To show you how excited we really are:

 

MrPeabody210x235

Oh…how embarrassing. Well don’t let that image soil–I mean–spoil your urge to go. Go where? Go wear this proudly in the Theater! All you need to do it load up BattleBlock Theater and Mr. Peabody will unlock. But don’t wait too long to do it. It’s not healthy.

 

You have less than a day before we clean up the Theater and remove that stained prisoner for another day.

We have good news! Blocketeer and Moose will stay up over the weekend, but we’re giving you another special unlock today too!

 

FeaturePost_SnailTo fit the sluggish summer we’re experiencing due to humid San Diego weather, we’re unlocking Snail! All you’ll need to do is load up BattleBlock Theater and make your way to an online area. Getting the Snail will be that fast!

 

Just make sure your Snail doesn’t get a-salted in the featured Arena playlist!

 

We are keeping the Behemoth created playlists as the Arena Feature at this time since the Arena Playlist Creation Contest is still open until August 15th.

 

Reminder: Special unlocks in Steam will not be available to sell or trade until after they are no longer available to unlock in game. Click here for the specifics on that.

Howdy folks! We sure hope you had a good time following our Comic Con news this past weekend. It was a crazy hectic weekend, but we are now back in the office ready to bring more fun community levels to you in BattleBlock Theater.
 
As many of you know, we generally update the Furbottom’s Features section of BBT on Fridays. We had to push the Furbottoms Features cooperative playlist to this Monday, but we will be resuming the Friday schedule this week and updating the Arena Feature again this Friday.
 
So here are the two community co-op playlists that we’ve featured in BattleBlock Theater:
 
In XBLA:
Random Levels by The Hobb1t
 
In Steam:
Fun co-op v.2 by reridse
 
FeaturePost_BLOCKETEER

Click the links above for a photo preview and a write up by our level designers.

 

For those who finish either the Furbottom’s Features co-op or solo, you’ll be able to unlock Blocketeer once you’ve completed all the levels!

 

Yep, you’ll be able to jet around the levels with this fella. I reckon you don’t want to miss this opportunity.

 

As an added bonus for playing BattleBlock Theater online, players will also be unlocking Moose for a limited time.

 
FeaturePost_Moose

Get them soon while supplies last!

We made it! The four days of Comic Con, plus Preview night, are now done. Within a few hours after the exhibit hall closed, we were able to tear down the booth with our super hero team. Below are a few pictures of what went down in the final hours of Day 4 at SDCC. If you’d like to see all of our photos from Day 4, please click HERE.

Our 12th year at Comic Con was fantastic! Thank you to all of the fans who stopped by with words of encouragement and support for our games. And thanks to those who weren’t able to make it but joined us by watching our live stream on our Twitch channel.
 
We’ve just got one more show to go this year! See you all next month at PAX Prime!

It’s coming to an end, but it’s not over yet! Today is the last day of Comic Con 2014 and we’re ready to take on our fifth day in a row of the exhibit hall.
 
It’s been a sweet adventure with the new Game 4 Cupcake at the booth. We can’t tell you how good it feels to see an attendee or fan pass by looking confused and amused at the same time. It worked! Hopefully it has piqued your interest since we’ll be revealing some more info about Game 4 in the coming weeks.
 
Until then, say hi and bye to us at our Comic Con booth if you get a chance to go to the exhibit hall today! We’ll be having our last Twitter Photo Raffle for those who enter their twit pics before noon. And then we’ll be closing up at 5PM PST to break everything down.
 
Last day, here we go!

We’re almost ready for Preview Night at the San Diego Comic Con. Booth 229 was looking good just before we left the Convention Center around 6PM last night. We spent the majority of the day putting the big stuff in place.

 

Here’s a look at what we had after the pallets and and our arcade cabinets arrived:

 

Arcade cabinets got set up, next came the sign, and then the store.
