PAX East 2024 Recap and Photo Album

Months of extreme chicken planning and coordination go in to each PAX, and just like that — WAIT, DON’T BLINK TOO FAST — it’s over!

Don’t be sad it’s over. Be happy we have photos, so that we never forget! That’s right, it’s time to share our PAX East 2024 photo album, in addition to a quick little recap of the show-nanigans.

We had such a great time celebrating all things aliens, Cat Guards, and co-op video games with you all weekend long! From all of us chickens, thanks so much for always making the show so memorable.

Check out this BOOTH

WE ARE SO BACK! Enjoy some snaps of this lovely booth, complete with our Cat Guard photo op, merch store, and arcade cabinets for Alien Hominid HD, Castle Crashers, BattleBlock Theater, Back Off Barbarian, and the NEWLY RELEASED AND SOON TO BE UPDATED Alien Hominid Invasion!

Cat Guard cosplay photo shoot!

From different Persona protagonists to an entire group of Spidermen, we were visited by so many awesome cosplayers this year. Even MEGA MAN showed up to play some BattleBlock Theater!

But there was one cosplay a little different than the rest. Yes, I believe I can speak for most of us chickens when I say this is the cosplay we won’t soon forget!

My brush is mightier than your sword!!!!! But IRL.

Here’s some bonus pics of the Painter playing Castle Crashers with Tom! 🙂

And YOU get a scarf!

If you were around the booth at 11am any day of the show, you likely walked away with a fancy new chicken scarf! We hope it helped against that wicked Boston wind, even if just a little bit.


On the final day of PAX, we hosted our first ever “Can YOU Beat THE Behemoth Chicken?” competition, where all of the great fans pictured above took turns competing head-to-head against chicken-suited-up Mike in Alien Hominid HD. Did anyone actually beat THE Behemoth chicken at their own game? The world may never know, but everyone earned a YouTooz and chicken keychain for trying! Amazing job, everyone!

That’s all for this year’s PAX East recap! Where is the big chicken headed next, you ask? WASD in London this April 25-27… see you there!


Castle Crashers Physical now available on our merch store!

It’s time! Through one round of pre-orders and a record-breaking flash sale, Castle Crashers Remastered is available for Nintendo Switch physical! Stocked and distributed through our merch store DIRECTLY, you can place an order for it beginning today, April 1st at 12PM PDT!

No, this is not an elaborate joke and definitely not an April Fools Day prank, IT’S TIME. So sharpen your broccoli sword, eat your sandwich and close your helmet, for crying out loud, because we have some castles to crash.

The price remains the same since our initial limited launch of it: $29.99 excluding shipping for the game itself, and it comes with a sticker pack and character unlock guide book! Yes, a GUIDE BOOK for you to physically hold and flip through, a reminder of the days long gone spent poring over guides and maps and unlocks and combo buttons…all that’s missing is pizza and Surge Cola and you, too, can have your childhood back*
*No guarantees but hey, it’s nice to think about

All of us here at The Behemoth are grateful to the fans and friends we’ve made along the way with this title and all our other game babies, and we truly thank you for waiting [mostly] patiently for this release. 

We posted a while back that we have temporarily suspended international orders through our store while we review more affordable options to YOU, our beloved international merch lovers! We are still in the middle of this process, so our merch store will continue to be North America (US/Canada) only for the time being. We truly appreciate your understanding and patience as we try to restructure this to make it better for you, and assure you that this is not the final chance to secure Castle Crashers in its physical form. We’ll let you know as soon as possible!

Happy April Fool’s Day! Orange you glad this isn’t a prank and you [probably] aren’t the fool today?
