SDCC 2017 – Behemoth + Friends Recap

San Diego Comic Con 2017 is now over! We had such a blast hanging out with our friends this year. The Behemoth + Friends booth was absolutely a success and we were so lucky to have been able to pull it off with the help of all the devs in attendance.

Behemoth + Friends group shot



It was our 15th year and we wanted to do something special this Comic Con.

We invited some of our friends to show off their latest games because over the years the number of playable video game titles on the show floor has been declining. Mega-merch booths now rule the far end of Hall A, with just a few games for attendees to play. While Comic Con has never billed itself as a competitor to the Penny Arcade Expo, we felt our booth should help breathe a little life and variety back into the video game section of the show.

Here’s a closer look at each of our friends’ games and the devs who came to the show:

SDCC 2017 – Day 1 and Day 2

San Diego Comic Con is a force to be reckoned with. Thousands of people roam the exhibit hall, panels, and the streets of downtown San Diego. Our booth is just one of many in the exhibit hall, but we still think it’s pretty unique this year!

For those of you who couldn’t make it to Comic Con this year, let us give you the full Behemoth + Friends booth experience:

First, make sure you adorn your most adorable nerd culture costume or outfit. (Tees acceptable)


SDCC 2017 – Preview Night

San Diego Comic Con had its Day 0 last night where some attendees were able to preview the expo floor in four short hours. Here’s a look at our booth:

As you can see, we’ve invited 6 developer friends to show off the following titles:

Nightmare Cops – by Newgrounds
Oxygen Not Included – by Klei
Salt & Sanctuary – by Ska Studios
Totally Accurate Battle Simulator – by Landfall Games
Rivals of Aether – by Dan Fornace
Inversus – by Hypersect

You can play their demos at our booth in addition to our latest game in development, Pit People!

These Pit People arcade cabinets are also new to San Diego Comic Con! The two arcade cabinets on the left are showing of the tutorial levels and the two on the right are for 1v1 fights in the Pit.

We’ve also brought in a selection of merch to our Gift Shop at the back of the booth. We’ve got t-shirts, we’ve got plushies, and we’ve got Chonku Chonku!!!

On Preview Night, we did a Facebook live stream towards the end of the night. If you missed it, the archived video is up on our Facebook page or you can see it here:

Just like last year, we’re next to the Capcom booth and Nintendo booth in the Exhibit Hall so be sure to stop by if you’re at the show!
