Over 3 Million Castle Crashers

September was another busy month for us. We attended our 7th PAX Prime, we revealed our level editor for BattleBlock Theater, hosted our second tournament for Castle Crashers, and finally saw our leaderboards for Castle Crashers pass the 3 million mark.

While we were in Seattle for PAX Prime 2012 the XBLA Castle Crashers leaderboards reached 3 million!Β This means that over three million humans have hacked and slashed their way into a castle in hopes of gaining animated glory! We are tremendously grateful that in four years, we’ve had the continuing opportunity to share this game with the world.

Castle Crashers continues to be exposed to new gamers who are just getting used to their controllers, to experienced gamers ready for challenges on insane mode, and everyone in between who just wants to play a great game. Reaching the 3 million in leaderboards means a lot to us for so many reasons. It shows us that there is still demand for 2D games like Castle Crashers. It motivates us to keep on creating fresh and original content like in Castle Crashers.

Thank you to everyone who has played our games and continues to support us as an independent developer. We’ll keep on fighting and making games as everyone continues to fight in our games.
