Reminder: The Furbottom’s Features will remain the same until the end of the year, so you’ll have all winter break to get the Monster!

Prepare Yourself for a Momentous Performance!
Just about any BattleBlock Theater regular can tell you that each and every week we uphold a tradition first put in place by the great P.Furbottom, something we fittingly call, “Furbottom’s Features”. We choose one playwright from the Community Theater and place one of their creations on high as an example of great stage design… or playwriting…or level design–really, whatever you want to call it. It’s a really great thing that we love to do, where everybody wins and has fun and is happy.
But, uh, this week we aren’t doing that.
Instead, as a gift we made especially just for everybody, we would like to present two playlists from The Behemoth… now on Steam for the first time!
Featured Solo/Coop Playlists:
“MomentumMonster” and “ComentumMonster” by Mr H Hattington (On XBLA) and FurryBottom1 (On Steam)
Difficulty Level: Expert
This is not your mommy’s playlists – this is for the rage in “outrageous”, the ouch in “ouch-this-hurts”. Think hard, play quick, and don’t give up. Above all, remember that victory is that much sweeter when it’s drenched in sweat and tears.
But do not be discouraged by the monstrous moniker! (Hard to hear after we built it up so much, huh?) Well, while not quite easy street, the levels found within are far from the most fatal your prisoners could face; those of you who have faced Story Mode might look to Chapters 6 and 7 for a hint.
Also, by “Comentum” we actually mean momentum, but we did, like, a thing where the name begins with “Co” instead of “Mo”… so that it sounds more like Cooperation. In case that wasn’t clear. What should be clear is that you can find both playlists in the Community Theater just like previous Furbottom’s Features, and each is full of the gems and yarn we know your heart desires!
Which is why you shouldn’t expect a simple, left to right affair either: your prisoner may be asked to think outside of the box, which is tougher than it sounds for someone who is always being forced to live inside of one. Thankfully, the subtlety timed manipulation of triggers and teleporters can save you from the not-so-subtle buzzsaws and explosions.
Should you prove fleet enough to defeat either playlists’ finale, a triumphantly tri-horned prisoner will be freed to do your bidding! The special unlock to go with these Monster Playlists has been fittingly dubbed “THE MONSTER.”
And you know what, that could totally work out fine for everyone… I don’t know why doing someone’s bidding always has to involve evil. Send your Monster out to fill the world with color in “Color the World” mode, or “Grab the Gold” mode and invest it in your local community.
You can also load your Monster down with grenades and make him uppercut everyone he meets in the face. And then we’ll find out who the real monster is, won’t we?
Finally, if you’re already feeling intimidated by this playlist then we’ve got a present that should help. Launch BattleBlock Theater to unlock The King from Castle Crashers. Putting a shiny crown on your head will always make things better.
