Super Mega64 meets BattleBlock Theater

This month, we partnered up with Mega64 to do some super sweet stuffs. Derrick Acosta from Mega64 is a fan of level building, so he created a Solo Adventure Playlist in BattleBlock Theater. We’re highlighting the playlist as part of Furbottom’s Features, so you’ll have a chance to play “Super Mega64!” Read our level designers’ comments on the playlist and see some sneak peek screen shots here.

 
You can also check out their design process in the video below. The recording is from a live stream they did a couple weeks ago on their segment called “Poorly Played Stream.” Warning: some strong language may be inappropriate for the ears of young children…

Mega64’s playlist was originally created on the XBLA version of BattleBlock Theater, but our Behemoth level design team copied their levels block by block, using the BBT level editor, and put the playlist up in Steam. So both Steam and XBLA players will get to experience this rad set of levels birthed by the brains of Mega64!

Continuing with the awesome collaboration, we’re doing a live stream with Mega64 on June 30th, from 3:30-4:30PM PDT! We’ll be playing through the “Super Mega64″ playlist on Furbottom’s Features and chatting with the guys about what’s good. We’ll also be keeping an eye on the chat room, so feel free to drop us a line while you’re watching live.

E3 2015 Recap

This year’s E3 in Los Angeles was certainly exciting for many reasons. So many rad developers have projects that are coming to fruition on all platforms and we’re looking forward to seeing them. Our own projects, Castle Crashers Remastered and Game 4, were also included in E3 as part of Microsoft’s briefing on June 15th.
 

 

While we didn’t exhibit this year at E3, we did head over to the convention hall to do an interview with the Xbox team to show off Castle Crashers Remastered and our in-development game, code named “Game 4.” Check out our segment of the interview here:
 

 
Finally, if you want to see some more behind the scenes shots from our time at Xbox Daily: Live @ E3, you can check out our Flickr Album.

We already knew that the apple was going to fall into your laps at some point (or on your head if you’re Isaac Newton) and now it has landed…
 
Huh? Alright, that one was a bit of a stretch but all that matters now is that BattleBlock Theater Steam is now available for Mac OS X 10.7 and above! Apple consumers, rejoice!
 
If you already had BattleBlock Theater Steam then you should be able to open up your account on a Mac computer and install our game. If you don’t own it yet, then today may be the perfect day to get it!
 
BattleBlock Theater Steam is part of the Monster Summer Sale. It’s currently also part of a Flash Sale that runs until 10AM PDT on 6/19/2015 that puts it at 90% OFF the original price! This is some serious news and we hope you understand the gravity of it.
 
No? Too far? Forget it…
 
STEAM… VERSION!
