We’ll keep this short since we know you have enemies to bash and princesses to rescue, but what’s a launch day without some warm fuzzies? In summary, it has been quite the journey for us… the original Castle Crashers launched way back in 2008. In the 11 years since its launch, the game has sold over 20 million copies and still receives praise that absolutely floors us to this day.
Now in 2019, we get to bring the game to two new platforms. First off, that means that it’ll be sticking around in the gaming world for quite some time. Beyond that? We have all new audiences and players that will hopefully grow to love Castle Crashers just as much as many of you have. This is especially exciting with the Switch, since Castle Crashers has never been available on any Nintendo platform before this.
We hope you enjoy taking our tiny knights on new adventures — in fact, we wish we could see all of the fun that you have. Let us know what crazy moments you have on Twitter or Facebook, yeah?
Best of luck on your new adventure! Now get to crashing those castles.
*Castle Crashers Remastered on the PlayStation 4 will launch on September 19, 2019 for the Europe region. On the Switch, the game may be launching at 15:00 in the CEST, BST, WEST, AEST, and NZST regions. Sorry to start celebrating before you arrive, but we’ll still be partying when you get here!
It was a big and busy month for the small chickens at The Behemoth. If you recall, we hit EGX London, then MCM Comic Con London, and THEN EGX Berlin. It was three straight weeks of awesome shows, but it took a minute to shake off the jet lag that came with it.
Now that everything is back in order at home base, we wanted to share our adventures before we dive into prep for 2020 (yeah, that’s coming soon).
After the first weekend in Europe, John wrote up a blog post on EGX London, which you can read here.
Moving into MCM Comic Con London we weren’t sure what to expect. Since we’re San Diego based, we’re used to the enormous spectacle of San Diego Comic-Con that happens every year. I guess that lead us to believe that MCM Comic Con would be a smaller show, which was pretty off-base.
While the show wasn’t quite as crazy as San Diego Comic-Con, we were very pleased by how balanced it was. There was a great mix of pop culture, comics, and of course, video games! The crowd also had more than enough interest in everything, and there was more than enough fun to go around.
There were also quite a few Behemoth cosplayers that showed up! It’s always incredible to see people bringing our characters to life IN real life — that’s a feeling that never goes away or gets old.
At EGX Berlin, the Berlin gaming crowd turned out in a big way. There were about tons of indie devs and games publishers, as well as the lots and lots of enthusiastic cosplayers.
Strangely, they had a small motocross stunt track that was used twice a day. At first we thought it was an electric moto, but after a bit the thick sweet smell of exhaust began to waft through the small exhibition area. Yay, carbon monoxide! We all woke up several hours later….
The venue had two large halls with the devs in one and the merch, food trucks, and lounges in another. Luckily there was a bit of an airlock between the halls because once the deep fat fryers got started, it smelled like a county fair. Inside. All things considered, we were lucky to be in the other room!
The show had crazy mix of games and devs from all over Europe. We saw lots of point and click and narrative games, a good helping of puzzlers and reaction games, and even a golf game for non-golfers built by devs who don’t play golf. One of the publishers also brought their full array of simulators (bus simulator anyone?).
All in all, we had a great time in Europe testing out these new (to us) shows. Looking ahead to 2020, we definitely might have to make our way back to a couple of them, and we can’t wait!
If you don’t know what Singles’ Day is, it’s exactly what you probably think it is — a day to celebrate being a single (and unwilling to mingle).
The perfect way to celebrate being by yourself is by treating yourself, and also not leaving the house and instead filling that void in your heart with some good ol’ fashioned video games. Lucky for you, we have everything you need to do just that!
From Sunday, November 10th at 8 AM PT through Tuesday, November 12th at 8 AM PT, all Behemoth games will be on sale! Grab Castle Crashers or BattleBlock Theater for 80% off, and Pit People for 40% off, and make a new game your perfect match.
We normally encourage our players to go for gold in co-op, but hey! There’s nothing wrong with taking a little extra time for you, yourself, and you. Happy Singles’ Day!
We were delighted, we were frighted (which is totally a word, according to Dictionary.com) and now we’re most of all excited to present to you the winners of our 2019 Behemoth Halloween contest!
This year we broke things down into three separate categories to encourage extra fun and imagination: (1) Best in Show, (2) Most Creative, and (3) Spooky Scariest. We received a ton of incredible entries, and it was harder than ever to pick this year’s winners; it took voting from almost everyone on the team!
But without further ado, here are your Behemoth Halloween Contest winners for 2019!
Best in Show
We’d like to extend a big thank you to everyone who entered! We loved seeing all the entries, and the creativity of our fans always blows us away. We’re already looking forward to next year.
If you were one of our fabulous #BehemothHalloween contest winners, be on the lookout for a message from us! We’ll be contacting you on the account that you entered with very soon.
