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!

There’s no denying it anymore…it’s real and it’s here. We had our first taste of Comic Con 2014 last night with several thousands of people roaming the exhibit hall floor. And this is only the beginning.

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.

This week we’ve put a couple of things on pause for different reasons. We wanted to keep you up to date and keep you in the know.
 
Arena Features – Community Playlists on Pause
 
Since we’re doing an Arena Playlist Creation Contest that runs until August, we’ve decided to bring back Arena Features “FightForLove” (in XBLA) and “FightForOurLove” (in Steam) in BattleBlock Theater. These are playlists created by our level designers at The Behemoth. We’re giving our community members a chance to create a new playlist to submit and not worry about the rule that excludes any previously Featured community playlist from being submitted. Arena Features will return to highlighting new community playlists after the Contests ends on August 15th.

 
Trading and Selling Special Unlocks in Steam on Pause
(for up to two weeks at a time)

 

We will be delaying the ability to sell and trade newly released special unlocks for up to two weeks after release–depending on how long that unlock is available. The prisoner will still be available to unlock as usual and will be present in your inventory. However, you will not be able to sell or trade them until they are rotated out and new prisoners are released. This will help to minimize the creation of duplicates within the market at this time. Big thanks to the Steam Community for the recommendation!
This new policy will start with this week’s special prisoner unlocks. It does not affect special prisoners that were previously released.

 
FeaturePost_DonutsFeaturePost_TROLL

Speaking of special prisoner unlocks, we’ve got two of them for you this week and all you need to do is log in! Load up your full version of BattleBlock Theater XBLA or Steam to get Donuts and Troll. It’s a wonderfully delicious combination if we do say so ourselves!

 

For those of you who may not know, the Troll character was originally co-starring in our 2nd game, Castle Crashers!. This same troll was featured in a Throwback Thursday reveal of our original gameplay, which was posted yesterday:

The Troll has come a long way since this Castle Crashers demo we showed at Comic Con 2005!

SDCC_prep1

There’s so much to do!

 

There’s just five more days until San Diego Comic Con 2014! We’ve been hard at work in the warehouse and preparing for the Con by making figurine boxes packed with Castle Crashers knights. Next on our list will be checking all the inventory we’re bringing, packing it out, and moving it over to the Convention Center the night before Preview Night. To see it all set up, come to our Booth next week at Comic Con (Booth 229)!

 

SDCC_prep3

SDCC_prep2

 

We’ll be posting more details soon about the merchandise we’ll be selling at Booth 229, but here’s a little taste of what we’ll have there:

 

SDCC_prep4

We’re bringing Busts of Hatty, 12 t-shirt designs, Castle Crashers figurines, and more!

What an amazing tournament that was! The matches were hot and intense. Congrats to Shoomway for taking 1st place! Shoomway will be getting some sweet merchandise as well as the grand prize that was revealed today. If you didn’t hear about it yet, the grand prize winner gets to be immortalized in our next game (Game 4?)–in some way we can’t tell you how yet since Game 4 details have yet to be revealed!
 
Falling close behind we had SnipeTheWolf in 2nd place and TheMcFargy in 3rd place. Here’s a look at how it all played out using our brackets as visuals:

This weekend, a Triple Threat comes your way in BattleBlock Theater! You’ll see it right when you load up your game — BAM! Don’t worry, it’s practically harmless…until you decide to arm it with frog bombs, exploding airplanes and good ol’ fists if you choose hand-to-hand combat (now that’s a triple threat!).
 
FeaturePost_TripThreat
We’re also updating the Furbottom’s Features solo playlist. You know what that means. You get a prize for all of your effort playing to the end of the Furbottom’s Features!
 
FeaturePost_SNAKEFACEHere are the Solo Features that we just chose:
 
In XBLA: Suicidal Circus by LevelDesignGuy

Before we knew it, the expo had gone in a hot second. Well, not just one second… We had three awesome days in Texas for Rooster Teeth Expo. (But it was hot!)
 
Every day at RTX, there were a steady stream of people that came to Booth 131 once the doors opened. We got to talk to people as they checked out our games, or when they came up to check out the gift shop.

 

We even got to see some people we met last year, including our buddies from the Creatures.

 

Could you point me in the right direction, please?

How to maneuver around RTX.

 

We saw old friends! (Left to right: Alex, James, Ian)

We saw old friends! Hi Aleks, Dan, and James!

Definitely another great chance to meet with the fans and to show off our new life-sized cupcake from Game 4. You can find more pictures from the event HERE. If you have any you’d like to share with us, please send them our way!
 
Until next time, see y’all later!

We spent the whole day on Thursday, July 3rd, building our RTX booth from the ground up. It’s got arcade cabinets, it’s got a fully stocked Gift Shop (but limited quantities so don’t wait!), it’s got a photo op spot, and it’s even got ASTROTURF! We’ve got it all at Booth 131!
 
Our booth so much bigger compared to last year:

So let us celebrate Fourth of July with you by giving you the Sausage and Boom! prisoner unlock just for signing in and playing some online arenas.
