PAX East 2020 = Fashion 👕

So we’ve been told Boston is cold, but you know what goes great under winter wear? Fresh Behemoth merch! It’s so fire, it’ll warm you right up.

You can get your own gear at our PAX East gift shop! (That’s going to be at Booth #10031, by the way, and you can check out an overview of the rest of our PAX East plans here.) We’re bringing along a bunch of new goodies, and you can get a first look at them by reading on.

First things first, we know what the people been waiting for.

PAX East Exclusive T-Shirt

Prep for the upcoming invasion with this t-shirt that shows the evolution of the Alien and Agent throughout the years! Aw, look how much they’ve grown — especially the Agent’s flat-top. Incredible, really.

Beefy T-Shirt

The perfect shirt for anyone who wants to show off their beef. Also, it’s sort of reminiscent of childhood since it looks like a PB&J (only with more orange). Can your current shirt evoke such strong memories of your playground days? No??? Didn’t think so.

Blue Knight Hat

Check out this icy cool new hat reveal! Don’t look now (and you actually can’t because this is a still photo), but there’s also ice crystals under the brim. Chill.

Pink Knight Hat

This is one a little more familiar, but this is the first time you’ll be able to get the Pink Knight Hat at PAX East! What a happy little hat.

Necromancer Socks

The Necromancer is here to resurrect your feets after a long day of walking around at PAX (or wherever else you are).

Blacksmith Socks

I’ve saved the best clothing item for last — aka, these are my personal favorites from this merch drop. I’ll let the socks tock for themselves. Er, salks talk. Socks talk.

Series 2 Figurines

You may have seen these little buddies before, but this is the first time they’re coming to PAX East! Grab your favorite knight or villain to defend your desk.

Remember that PAX East 2020 is happening in Boston from on February 27th to March 3rd. If you can’t make it to the show, be sure to stay tuned in to our social media so that you can join in on the fun!

We’re Invading PAX East 2020!

Can you believe that PAX East is almost here? I sure can’t! In fact, I accidentally typed “2019” in the title while I was writing this. Anyway, we’ll be at the show from February 27th to March 1st at Booth #10031, and we want you to visit us!

We’ll be at PAX East with a full-scale INVASION happening at our booth. That’s right, Alien Hominid Invasion will be playable at the show for the first time ever, AND we’ll be releasing more details about the game while we’re there! That way, even if you can’t make it, you’ll still be able to be a part of it all. No one is safe from the Invasion.

But since you’re here, you must be excited! We’ll give you a little sneak peek at everything that’s coming to PAX East, just because you deserve it.

Games

We’ll make this easy, and start with the big one: Alien Hominid Invasion.

The recently announced Alien Hominid Invasion will be playable for the first time ever at PAX East! Drop by our booth any time during the weekend to get your hands on our upcoming game.

If you can’t make it to the show and are eager to learn more about the game, have no fear! When PAX East kicks off, we’ll be sharing more information about the game right here on our blog and across our social media channels.

We’re also bringing the rest of our fine selection of games via arcade cabinets. Try your hand at the original Alien Hominid game, or revisit an old familiar favorite like BattleBlock Theater, Castle Crashers, or Pit People. And if you consider yourself a pro at any of our games, you’re going to want to keep reading…

Challenges

Each day at 11 AM and 4 PM, we’ll be hosting competitions for PAX attendees! Go head to head against your friends, your family, and a bunch of random people you’ve never seen before in your life.

There’s a little bit of something for everyone, so check out what’s on the menu:

  • Day 1: Alien Hominid Speedrun
  • Day 2: BattleBlock Theater Challenge
  • Day 3: Super Soviet Missile Mastar High Score
  • Day 4: Backoff Barbarian Longest survival time

Each challenge will last approximately 1 hour. To enter, all you have to do is show up! 1st and 2nd place winners will earn themselves some sweet prizes, and all participants will get consolation prizes, too! (Until we run out.)

Merch

We’ve got pretty merch, and lots of it. New hats, new socks, new shirts, and of course a PAX East exclusive t-shirt! Some of these are new to the show, and some are new to the WORLD, which means you have a chance to be a real trendsetter.

Keep an eye out for another blog post with more details (and tons of pictures!) coming next week.

Aside from the whole snow thing, we can’t wait for the show! We’re excited to show you what we’ve been working on. And if you can’t make it, remember that we’ll be sharing all the best bits on our social media channels, so be sure to follow us on Twitter and Instagram!

Pit People Tournament: Permadeath Edition

It’s time for another Pit People POOP tournament, but this one has consequences.

This month’s PC tournament challenges players to 1v1 their peers; only this time, all tournament matches will be played in Permadeath Mode. If you lose a character in the pit, they’re gone for good, even if you emerge victorious and have to soldier on.

The first place winner will get a Pit People Hoodie, with 2nd and 3rd place getting Pit People T-shirts so that you can flaunt your killer victory. (And if we don’t have your size, you’ll get a plush or figurine instead!)

Think you can handle it?

Matches will be scheduled to take place between February 15th and February 23nd based off of competitor’s schedules. If you think you have what it takes, sign up by joining the Pit Official Offensive People (Yes, that’s the TRUE meaning of P.O.O.P.) Discord server and letting Normandia or KreeperKiller63 know you want to be a Pit People P.O.O.P. Participant.

Be sure to get to recruiting characters well ahead of time, too; if you lose one in the competition, you won’t be able to use them anymore (or ever again, for that matter).

This tournament is going to be a true test of Pit People skill — do you have what it takes?
