The Alien [Merch] Invasion Is HERE!

If you were feeling a little too humanoid, a little too intergalactically underdressed for the Invasion, we’re here to give you some hominid hope! With the launch of Alien Hominid Invasion and Alien Hominid HD on November 1st, we added some new items to our merch hideout for you!

Previously only spotted at PAX West 2023, there were rumors it would soon Invade the rest of the world…introducing the ALIEN HORDE BUTTON UP! Never go anywhere alone again! Hundreds of aliens will always be with you.  Look, there are literally dozens of them!

*Not made from real aliens
**Combos beautifully with our Alien Horde Bucket Hat!

If a bucket hat isn’t for you (perhaps you are more of pail hat alien) there is no need for panic. There may be a need for an EMBROIDERED ALIEN HOMINID FLAT BILL CAP though! 

You may have noticed that hominid’s eyes aren’t actually eyes at all…if you enhance you will see that those eyes are actually ALIEN HOMINID PATCHES. You, too, could have aliens for eyes. Or you could use them as actual patches, ya know.

For those who want to rep The Big Chicken, we’ve restocked our beautimous Behemoth Crewnecks and our Chicken Pocket Tees! Maximum tee shirt pocket capacity: 21 mini aliens.

And now for a SPECIAL FEATURE! Here at The Behemoth, we like to give away FREE STUFF to you as much as we can. To continue the celebration of launching both Alien Hominid Invasion and Alien Hominid HD on November 1st, we’re hosting ANOTHER giveaway on Twitter! Every Monday from November 6th until November 27th, we’ll be picking one winner of a limited Alien Hominid x Youtooz figurine!

To enter, simply follow The Behemoth on Twitter (X?), like, and retweet our giveaway post!

PAX West 2023: Competition and Giveaway Info

It’s a bird, it’s a plane, wait – it’s a bird (chicken) on a plane, headed to PAX West in Seattle! That’s right, our crew will be at the show from September 1st-4th at Booth #2317 with some arcade cabs, competitions of epic proportions, exclusive merch, and an infinite amount of bawks!

What games are you bringing, chicken overlord?

This time around, we’ll have arcade cabinets for Alien Hominid Invasion, Alien Hominid HD, Castle Crashers Remastered, and Back Off Barbarian. Come by, try out a few of our older titles, and check out the first-ever 2-player Invasion cabinet!

Castle Crashers Giveaway

We recently announced the upcoming Castle Crashers Nintendo Switch physical edition, and we want to keep the excitement going with a giveaway!

On Friday, Saturday, and Sunday of the show, we’ll be giving away the PAX-exclusive Castle Crashers donut box (pictured above), in addition to a set of Joy-Cons with two of the original knights’ colors!

To enter, all you have to do is stop by the booth and fill out a raffle ticket from 10am-4pm on any day except Monday. Winners will be drawn at 4pm each day and contacted to pick up their prize before 5:30pm. Attendees can enter once per person, per day. Contest entries reset each day, so be sure to come back the next day to re-enter if your name isn’t drawn!

If you can’t make it to the show, stay tuned for a chance to win on Twitter!

Alien Hominid Invasion SPEEDRUN Extravaganza

From 4-5pm each day, we’ll be hosting a speedrun competition of the Alien Hominid Invasion demo, complete with totally-legit commentary from our community managers.

The speediest invader each day will win a grand prize goodie bag with a signed YouTooz figurine, Invasion-themed apparel, and more alien goodies! Two runner-ups daily will also win a smaller goodie bag with a bandana and keychain, so there’s even more incentive to join in on the speedy invasion fun.

Back Off Barbarian High Score ALL DAY CHALLENGE

Want to win some Castle Crashers merch by battling some barbarians? We have the contest for you! Our Back Off Barbarian challenge will take place all day, every day during show hours (10am-5pm).

To enter, get the high score on our Back Off Barbarian machine, enter your initials, take a pic of your score, and post it on Twitter with the hashtag #BehemothBOB23. At the end of the entry period at 5pm, the high score wins our grand prize – if that’s YOU, make sure you come back to the booth by show floor closing to claim your prize!

The leaderboards will reset each day with one competitor being crowned champion! The daily grand prize includes a signed Barbarian figurine, BRAND NEW Castle Crashers socks, and more goodies wrapped up in a Troll Baggu. Two runner-ups will also receive those newly-designed socks, simply because we love socks.

NOTE: To keep things on an equal playing field (and spread the love of comfy socks), attendees can only win each contest once.

That’s all we’ve got for now! As always, we’ll be posting updates on Twitter and Instagram leading up to and throughout the show weekend, possibly including a surprise or two… Who knows what the big chicken has in store?
