Celebrating Valentine’s Day with an ART CONTEST!

Do you smell it?

Sorry, that’s not a very romantic way to start off a Valentine’s Day post. 

“HERE, I got this for you, SMELL IT!”

Better. But really…do you smell it? The happiness, the rainbows, the lollipops, roses and pure goodness? Is that a whiff of hamster shavings? And no, it’s not locker room body spray because our eyes aren’t burning. It’s VALENTINE’S DAY and even if your princess is in another castle, we have Pink Knight! We ALL have Pink Knight! Forever and ever, ten thousand years…PINK KNIGHT!

In a world where the doom and gloom can become suffocating and bleak, a lone protector watches to make sure we don’t forget the true meaning of being alive: hamsters and weasels. In a world where hats become cursed and taxes don’t exist, Pink Knight is reminding us to put down our broccoli swords and instead sharpen your lollipop because it’s about to get real: we’re hosting a Valentine’s Day Art Contest and the subject? PINK KNIGHT OUR BELOVED.

  1. Using your artsy fartsy skills, make a Valentine’s Day card featuring Pink Knight, in whatever art medium you like! Digital, paper, clay, decoupage, mosaic, marble sculpting, everything goes EXCEPT:
    1. Hair not allowed, just don’t, please don’t. No hair collages.
  2. We will be looking at this with our human seeing eyeballs, we’re fresh out of eye bleach, and we will be posting winning submissions so please keep it appropriate for general audiences
  3. When it is locked and loaded, neatly package your card and send it to our email: games@thebehemoth.com.
  4. Must be 18 years or older to participate, or have parental consent if under 18.

*If you would like to see your competition or share your design with other members of The Behemoth community, come on over to our Discord Server and share your post in our fan-art gallery!

Contest entries must be submitted no later than 11:59:59PM PST on February 13th, 2024. If you’re even one second off, we’re ripping the card into a million pieces and crying over an empty box of chocolates because you couldn’t care enough to submit on time. Would Hatty do that to you?!

Winners will be announced on Valentine’s Day, sometime! During the day. We’ll post our three winners on our blog and social media once they have been Decided, and will notify the winners via the email they submitted their entry with.

***Update 2/14: We received an overwhelming amount of entries and will be taking a little bit longer to go over them, so we can be sure each entry gets the attention it deserves. Seriously, so many entries. We are besieged by Pink Knight art. This is a good problem to have.

YOU GET A PRIZE, YOU GET A PRIZE, YOU GET A PRIZE! And that’s it. Three winners. But what are they winning? 

THIS JUST IN – an incredibly limited amount of Castle Crashers Pink Knight Figurines have appeared for this contest, this year, in 2024. We have been blessed with a very smol handful of the elusive Pink Knight figurines, and would like to spread the cheer this Valentine’s Day 🙂  Banana for scale.

This Pink Knight Figurine could be yours! Produce not included.

So what are you waiting for?

Why are you still here reading this?

Why aren’t you out there making all the art with your art hands and art pens and pencils? You have a duty to Pink Knight, who never let you down, to capture their Really, Really Ridiculously Good Looking Side.

Merry Bawk-mas from The Behemoth!

We’ve had quite the ending to our 2023 here at The Behemoth!

We returned to tradeshows, we launched two separate games across three different platforms, we held true to a years old April Fool’s Day post of making Castle Crashers Remastered Nintendo Switch Physical a REAL THING (restock coming early next year!), we gave our boy Blacksmith the plushie he deserved…we’ve been busy chickens.

As mentioned in our previous blog post, we recently pushed an update to Alien Hominid Invasion which added a bunch of new achievements, a new map algorithm, some balancing, along with a hotfix for Alien Hominid HD! Part Two of this update will land in early 2024.

And from now until January 4th at 10AM PST, enjoy some savings on our games and spread the holiday cheer in the Steam Winter Sale! And as an extra holiday thank you from our team, catch our new releases Alien Hominid Invasion and Alien Hominid HD during their first discount ever!

Thank you for reading this with your human eyes in a voice you can’t quite place, and for being the reason We Make Games for the past twenty years. We couldn’t have made it this far without you, and we certainly wouldn’t want to!

See you for the next trip around the sun,

The Behemoth
