Cat Control returns for Astronomy Day

planets
This week marks the 25th anniversary of the Hubble Space Telescope. April 25th is also International Astronomy Day! We’ve definitely got a deep appreciation for space and the technology that gets us closer to interstellar worlds. In honor of these events, we’re giving you Cat Control:
 
FeaturePost_CatControl
It’s not quite a space suit, and not quite a UFO, but it’s definitely out of this world! Enjoy this special unlock by loading up BattleBlock Theater. While you’re already in there, be sure to check out the new Arena Feature!

Note: If you already unlocked CatControl in the past, then you will not get a notification this time. You can find the special prisoner in your player set up under the star category.
 

Wise up and play BattleBlock Theater!

Uncertain of what you’ll be doing for your few hours of freedom over the weekend? We’ll make it easier for you and pass on our wisdom: Play video games.
 
Specifically, play BattleBlock Theater and work towards unlocking Hooshmand, The Wise. That’s right! In Furbottom’s Features, you’ll be playing hard to work hard! (Huh?)
 
FeaturePost_HOOSHMAND
Just finish either the solo or co-op playlist in Furbottom’s Features and you will be granted this wildly, wise cat.
 
Hooshmand has seen things. Terrible, violent things. Play this week’s feature and you can also see terribly violent things, but at least you’ll get to hang out with Hooshmand in the end!

 
XBLA Solo Feature:

Difficulty: Expert
 
Steam Solo Feature:
Floor is Lava[Solo] by KLJF22
Difficulty: Expert
 

Expert difficulty playlists will be challenges even for BattleBlock veterans. These levels are put together with no regard for the safety of your prisoner. Innovative and deadly exercises await inside these demanding levels. Doubly so on Insane Mode!

 

*A special note regarding Prisoner unlocks: Remember you can complete either Story mode Furbottom’s Feature to unlock this week’s featured Prisoner. If the Solo Feature is too hard, try Co-Op and vice versa! You can even recomplete current Feature’s you have already played!
 
If you already have Hooshmand, then you won’t be getting a pop up notification for a new prisoner. True story.

 

A TripleThreat returns to BattleBlock Theater

FeaturePost_TripThreatToday is National Sibling Day! There’s no other person(s?) who understands the importance of family bonding more than TripleThreat! These three can’t stand being apart ever…or is it that they can’t stand, if they’re apart? In any case, in the spirit of Sibling Day, we’re giving you three prisoners in the body of one!
 
Just head into BattleBlock Theater and go towards an online feature in the game to unlock this prisoner. If you already have TripleThreat in your list of Star prisoners, then you won’t be getting the notification.
 
While you’re already in the game, you may as well take advantage of our awesome new Arena Features made by the community!

Suit up for Furbottom’s Features

FeaturePost_SNAKEFACE It’s Friday! And it’s a good one. Know what this means? It’s time to suit up with your fanciest duds and load up BattleBlock Theater for some Furbottom’s Features!
 
As a reward for your efforts in Furbottom’s Features, we’ll give you our most fanciful suit after you complete either the solo or co-op playlist! You’ll be able to rock out in any level as our Snakeface special prisoner.
 
If you don’t get an unlock notification, then you may already have Snakeface! Just check your list of Star prisoners in player set up to be sure.
 
Here are the new co-op playlists in Furbottom’s Features that have been updated for this month:
 
XBLA Co-Op Playlist:
Chapter2 2P by Logan s Miller
Difficulty level: Easy
A walk in the laser and buzzsaw filled park. Playlists of this difficulty will be a smooth experience full of interesting ideas more so than relentless challenge. These will generally be easier than the original Story mode campaign.
 

Steam Co-Op Playlist:
RunningMan coop by razavimday
Difficulty level: Expert
Expert difficulty playlists will be challenges even for BattleBlock veterans. These levels are put together with no regard for the safety of your prisoner. Innovative and deadly exercises await inside these demanding levels. Doubly so on Insane Mode!
 
*A special note regarding Prisoner unlocks: Remember you can complete either Story mode Furbottom’s Feature to unlock this week’s featured Prisoner. If the Co-Op Feature is too hard, try Solo and vice versa! You can even recomplete current Feature’s you have already played!

 

Mushroom Mayhem in Game 4

mushroomfart

Who knew that fungi could be so fashion forward? We certainly didn’t until we started putting bandanas and crowns on our fungal friends in Game 4!
 
It’s time to root for our favorite Mushrooms out on the hex-walk today as they show off their duds and we savor their fragrance:

 


First, we have Justice getting ready for his walk. He’s looking a bit queasy though! We hope he can make it through this…
