FeaturePost_HOOSHMAND It’s time to wise up, BattleBlock Theater players. That’s right. You heard me. It’s return of Hooshmand, The Wise!
 
If you haven’t already received this feline friend, then it’s best to load up BattleBlock Theater today and head towards an online area to unlock the prisoner. You won’t want to miss this rare chance!
 
And while you’re in BattleBlock Theater anyway, you should check out the awesome Arena Feature we just updated. These two playlists were honorable mentions in our recent Arena Playlist Creation Contest:
 
XBLA Arena Feature:
CaptureTheDuck by LevelDesignGuy
 
Steam Arena Feature:
Gold & Glory by Mini-Suite for Duke

An early prototype of our Game 4 arcade cabinets

An early prototype of our Game 4 arcade cabinets


 

Revealing our new game, currently titled Game 4, during PAX Prime was a series of complicated and stressful adventures that turned out amazingly well. All of this happened weeks leading up to the show, and it was hard for us to keep our giddiness under control.
 
On top of working on the demo for Game 4, our co-founder & producer, John Baez, led the construction for 12 custom built arcade cabinets that would house our first ever playable demo for the public. (You can find more pictures of the construction in our PAX Prime Album Collection.)

 

IMG_4397

The finished set up at PAX 2014

The arcade cabinets were placed together on the show floor to create a magnificent dodecagon! Those who got a chance to play the game got to execute their orders using our nifty lever (which takes the place of the Y button on an Xbox One controller).
 
The demo lasted about 25-35 minutes on average depending on the player. Despite the long lines, PAX attendees were willing to wait up to 3 hours to play the demo and a lot of people even took the time to give us their feedback on the comment cards we provided! (Thank you to everyone who did!) For those of you who did not get to play, here’s the opening cinematic that players got to see during the demo:

 

 

cupcake-01As you may have heard or read in various PAX coverage last week, Game 4 (a working title) will be a fast paced, turn-based co-op adventure where you’ll have a chance to quest & explore, find awesome loot, customize your fighters, and recruit strange species!

 

And we have even more info for those who are thirsting for more about the game:

 

-Coming to Xbox One and Steam
-No release date (yet!)
-Deep strategy with simple controls
-The game moves as fast or slow as your own pace
-You can position all of your fighters before you end your turn
-Will Stamper (BattleBlock Theater) returns to the Behemoth universe as the unreliable Game 4 narrator
-Plans for the game: single player, 2 player co-op, and up to 4 players for 2v2

Don’t want to take our word for it? Well, maybe our narrator can change your mind! Here’s the video that played at the end of our PAX demo, which sums up everything we just wrote:

 

 

Finally, if you missed our recap video of our PAX experience at Booth 3003, here’s a rad video that our photographer put together:

Hi guys, Aaron here!
 
Every once in a blue moon, I find that my desire to share a playlist with neat ideas wins out over my concerns about accessibility. It would appear that this week’s Solo Feature on Steam was one of those times. Acknowledging that, let me put two things out there before I continue:
 
1. The tail end of this playlist is HARD. Like, really hard. This is definitely something that should have been communicated in my forum post and on the blog; sorry about that! In the future, we are going to make sure the difficulty rating is posted front and center.
 
Also! Don’t forget that completing the Coop Feature will also unlock the same prisoner. As an added bonus, if you already happened to complete the current Coop Feature, new prisoners will unlock earlier in the playlist! We also make a habit of revisiting prisoners regularly, so even if you didn’t get a chance to unlock someone this time around, it doesn’t mean the chance is gone forever.
 
2. There is NEVER a reason to attack a level designer for the contents of their playlist. Remember that it is The Behemoth that chooses to feature a playlist, so please keep your feedback kind and constructive.
 
Everyone should have the freedom to make whatever they like without having to worry about how it will play to a wider audience. Heck, we’re the ones saying, “hey, this might be something you like”, so if you disagree with that statement, this is one of those rare times where you actually SHOULD shoot the messenger. I mean, well, metaphorically speaking.
 
Now with THAT out of the way, I wanted to take this opportunity to provide a bit of insight into the different factors I personally considered when selecting this particular Steam Feature and why we ultimately feel that this week’s playlist made the cut. For a general guideline for playlist creation, check out Furbottom’s Tips.

 

FFTips


 

Originality & Execution
Our level selection team felt SnakeBD’s playlist pushes the limits of what sort of challenges you can throw at players in BattleBlock Theater. For how difficult things can get by the end of the playlist, the challenges did not feel arbitrary: the player always has JUST enough room to get the job done, and as long as you’re quick on your feet and paying attention, luck is not a significant factor.
 
Difficulty & Fairness
Arguably, some of the later sequences of this week’s feature require trial and error, whether we’re talking about hidden spikes or maximizing jumps. The saving grace for me was that in each case, SnakeBD ramps up the difficulty on those mechanics, or warns the player that maybe the regular blocks in this level aren’t to be trusted.
 
For instance, in “Underground I”, the player is shown a few sections with spikes under “solid” blocks; later on, you’re expected to either “test the waters” or use monkey-bars or other block types whenever possible. Is this too much to ask? It very well may be, but I don’t disqualify playlists due to difficulty so long as we can get A++’s on Normal Mode (as always, choose Insane Mode at your own peril! We do not make completion in Insane Mode a requirement to be featured.). Instead, we try to vary the difficulty every time we feature a new playlist, that way we can cater to all skill levels: easy one Feature, difficult the next.

 

Mechanical & Cosmetic Theme
We often look to see if there’s a concept explored throughout the playlist, either in how the levels look or what challenges are presented. If so, this is a cool added bonus! In the case of “Heaven to Hell”, we get both: the appearance of the levels communicates the journey described by the title, as do the mechanics (clouds in “Heaven”, tricky bits in “Hell”, ducks and horses in between). Again, not essential to be selected as a feature, but pretty nifty regardless.
 
Anyways, sorry if this week’s Feature wasn’t your cup of tea; it can be tough trying to please a wide audience without skipping over some of the cooler ideas you designers come up with. I hope that a bit more transparency will help out in the future, but in the mean time, know that I’ve been putting myself through heaven and hell trying to get through on Insane Mode. Just, you know, for fun. Wish me luck!

FeaturePost_CatControlThere are days when you feel like you can’t control anything (like our Purrham unlock for XBLA & the Arena Feature last week. Those are up now by the way!). Other days, you feel like giving up control to a cat. That happens to you sometimes, right? No? Well it will now!
 
Finish up either the Solo or Co-Op playlist in Furbottoms Features and you’ll unlock Cat Control upon completion. It’s awesome seeing this feline control your body in BattleBlock Theater.
 
Here are the two new solo playlists that we’ve selected for Furbottoms Features this week:
 
XBLA Solo Playlist:
Solo Star by WeaklierCard6
 
Steam Solo Playlist:
Heaven to Hell by SnakeBD
 
Enjoy! Meow!

Awesome! Fans dressed up as Game 4 characters!

Awesome! Fans dressed up as Game 4 characters!

 

In four days we met over hundreds (probably thousands?) of people during the Penny Arcade Expo in Seattle. With our big reveal of the first playable Game 4 (working title) demo, we had non-stop lines for arcade cabinets, gift shop, and autograph sessions. Check out the Day 4 photos HERE.

 

As a special treat, the video below is just a taste of 32 hours at PAX Prime 2014. Many thanks to Paul for putting it together!

 

As you can see in that recap video we went on a few different live streams to show off the game to the fans at home since it was the first time we could really talk about Game 4. Below are the recordings of the live streams we were on during PAX Prime.

 

Twitch TV Stage Stream (Links directly to our segment)
 
ScrewAttack Stream (Waiting on link)
 

 

Thanks to everyone who came by our booth during PAX Prime! We loooove youuu!

Saturday was a whirlwind kind of day with all the events going on at the Behemoth booth and outside of our booth as guests for a couple live streams. We had the autograph signings with Will and Stamper, then jumped into a Twitch TV live stream, and ended the day with a ScrewAttack live stream. These streams were the first to ever show live gameplay of Game 4!

If you haven’t checked out our gameplay teaser yet (which shows at the end of the playable demo at PAX), then watch it now:
 


 

Other major events of the day included a panel on community involvement (good job, Lindsay! Way to represent The Research Centaur!) and our autograph signing session with Dan, Will, and Tom.

The results are in! After we went through over 90 playlists made by the community (good job to everyone!), our judges have finished selecting the winner of the Arena Playlist Creation Contest for both Steam and XBLA.
 
Winners will be contacted via email so we can send them an autographed Hatty Hattington bust and their playlists will be featured this week in BattleBlock Theater!
 
Without further ado…here are the list winners and honorable mentions, with descriptions by Mase and our level design crew:
 
Steam Winner

Game of Kings – by Hexadoodle
 
Game of Kings 3

Game of Kings 2

Checkmate. Dramatically, this playlist was the last playlist we saw when judging the competition. Just like the pivotal move in a chess match — you know, besides stalemates or dumping the pieces on the floor — this playlist bested its competition through cunning design and execution. Each level within this playlist is creatively themed around chess, its pieces and their movements. You’ll be chopping wood throughout this full complement of friendly game modes. A book-win for Hexadoodle!
 
Steam Honorable Mentions
 
Gold & Glory (Grab the Gold Maps) by Cautious Plastic

 

Grab the Gold is a silly game with silly rules won by silly people. Designing levels that take advantage of this game mode’s unique characteristics is no easy feat. The creator of this playlist pulled off 15 great Grab the Gold levels in a row! Great use of the Steam Workshop with a professional presentation cemented this playlist’s honorable mention.
 
Hatty Cup 2014 by KLJF22
 
One of our judges called this the “best set of Ball Game levels he’s ever played.” This creator implemented well-polished and inventive use of mechanics on each and every pitch! This playlist contains a well maintained soccer field theme on every level which really makes you feel like Pelé Beckhamington, the greatest ball game prison competitor that ever was! GOOOOOOOOAAAAAALLLLL!
 
Duckshark Arena by Obama’s Mama
 
A crackerjack collection of levels using every game mode, all featuring Ducksharks! Many stages actually look like Ducksharks! The final level is the definitive Duckshark Arena! There’s Ducksharks and Lasers and chaos and Ducksharks! This playlist is really fond of Ducksharks– and in the case of the preantepenultimate playlist, we are too.

 
XBLA Winner

 
Arcadia by MeltedCow

 

Arcadia1

Arcadia2

Bang for your buck — that’s what this playlist offers its players. Many of the levels in this playlist feel like two levels in one! Switches, paths and judicious use of clever block placement generate levels that can evolve and change as you play or offer great risk/reward benefits as you decide which paths to take. Be sure to check out the final stage in this playlist where you can adjust your difficulty, strategy and even your score objective. It’s the ultimate expression of this particular concours ultimate playlist!

 
Honorable Mentions
 
HEY LOOK HERE by TxC Artist
 
Fancy some King-of-the-Soul-Snatcher-Hill? How ‘bout trying this here Grab-the-Horse-Gold. One of the great secrets of the level editor of BattleBlock Theater is that you can combine the scoring mechanisms from other game modes by simply placing them in your game type. This creator discovered the secret and crafted a great revelation through the level editor. Creating levels for just a single game mode can be difficult enough, but this playlist has great options for your combination game type needs!
 
CaptureTheDuck by LevelDesignGuy
 
LevelDesignGuy created a new game mode within our humble yet powerful level editor and then managed to make 15 fantastic stages for it. This Furbottom’s Feature veteran managed a spectacular display of his understanding and intimacy with the mechanics of BattleBlock Theater. A fantastic demonstration of how far you can push the Battleblock Theater level editor!

Congrats to the winners! We’ll be featuring the honorable mentions in the future, but you can play them now if you go to the Community Theater.
 
FeaturePost_Furbottom175For this week, we’re featuring the winning playlists and giving BattleBlock Theater players a special unlock befitting of this occasion: Purrham Furbottom! All you’ll need to do is load up the game and go to an online area to unlock this gentleman.
 
(Now, go play those new Arena Features! The designers worked hard on them and deserve your audience participation. Go on now…)

We’ve been here since Tuesday doing set up for our booth (3003) and it’s looking solid (if we do say so ourselves). Actually, we’re still in the convention center now for final set up!
 
But we’ll be ready for Day 1 of PAX and we hope you’re ready too. Be sure to check out our schedule for booth events as well as for live streams of Game 4.
 
We can’t wait to show you our new colorful gift shop and awesome custom built arcade cabinets, so we’re giving you a sneak peek tonight! These new arcade cabinets were built in-house at our warehouse and they’re specifically designed for Game 4.

 

Come one, come all to The Behemoth!

castlepromo_3

This was the promo image we used for release in 2008!


 

On August 27, 2008, we released a 4-player co-op action adventure on XBLA and now we’re here to celebrate its sixth year out in the world.
 
Since our initial release, Castle Crashers has also made its way to PlayStation Network and Steam for Windows & Mac. In celebration of this anniversary, we’ll be giving out some goodies throughout the day!
 
 
FeaturePost_GIRAFFEY

First, let’s start with the Giraffey unlock in BattleBlock Theater. All you’ll need to do is load up the game and head to an online area to unlock this special character. Also, if you haven’t done so already, you can unlock Barbarian by completing Furbottom’s Features this week.
 
Next, keep an eye on our forums and our Twitter for a chance to win either a game code or some Necromancer postcards.
 

Thank you to all the people who have played Castle Crashers!

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

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!

WebFront_ArenaCreationContest

We’ve got five more days to go before we close the BattleBlock Theater Arena Playlist Creation Contest! Have you submitted your playlist for the contest yet? Here’s a break down of all the details you’ll need:
 

Anyone 13 or older can submit their original XBLA or Steam Arena Mode playlists for consideration. We’re accepting playlist submissions until August 15th.
 
The very best playlists for each platform (as decided by our panel of judges) will be awarded grand prizes or honorable mentions.
 
The grand prize will be some awesome BattleBlock Theater merchandise signed by our Level Designers, as well as immediate and exciting recognition as an Arena Mode Feature in-game. Honorable mentions will also receive incredible BattleBlock Theater merchandise, and consideration for future Features.
 
There will be one grand prize per platform (so that’s two total — one for XBLA and one for Steam), as well as two additional honorable mentions per platform.

I See You…have completed Furbottom’s Features. Huzzah!


 
One is the most fabulous number that you’ll ever do
Two can be as fun as one
It’s the raddest number since the number one

 
This week we’re changing up the Solo Feature in BattleBlock Theater! You can have fun and be number one just by going to Furbottoms Features in the game. The best part is that you’ll be getting a special prisoner when you finish up all the levels.

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!
