In past tradeshows we’ve shown BattleBlock Theater’s Arena modes and Arena modes ONLY, all while having parts of this really cool Story mode.
We weren’t positive whether Story mode would be ideal at a tradeshow because it isn’t instant battle intensity like Arena mode – Story mode is much more cooperative and thoughtful. “Oh, stand over there and do this!” you say to your friend. “Wait a sec, go this way!” your friend says, and so you try out your theories on navigating the level. These are the kinds of things that are more tolerated while sitting on the couch than standing in a sea of sweating humans. Of course, Story mode still allows you to kick your friend’s butt all over the map in between that precious cooperation. If you could just stop throwing me into the spikes I’ll let you get us that Gem over there.
Since we’ve found many people to have even more fun working together in BattleBlock Theater it only makes sense to break that out and let you all give it a whirl.
Story mode accommodates the difference between the number of players (1-4 currently). We will be showing some of the 2 player set.
I am so excited to get this game into your hands. It looks simple I’m sure, but it is the most complex thing I’ve ever worked on. The amount of thought we’ve put into it has really paid off. Please come see our game if you’re around!
