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! 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.

Let the Games Begin! Tournament of Champions 9/8/2012

>>UPDATE: Live Stream of Tournament will no longer be available, but we will keep you updated with plentiful forum posts (under Tournament of Champions section) and will post winners after every hour or so!


It’s been a couple weeks since we last spoke of the tournament, but our chosen knights who fought valiantly in the Qualifying Rounds have been practicing with true spirit and soul for the arrival of the day we call Tournament of Champions. It was postponed to September 8th for various reasons but there was absolutely no stopping this Tournament from happening. Someone, somewhere will be awarded with the golden Xbox and other Behemoth fortunes! The skills of our warriors will be observed September 8th from 10AM-5PM PST and the fates will decide the winner.

Before battle, give these knights encouragement and shower them with flowers in the forums if you desire (all you have to do is leave a positive comment). Players of the Tournament may also stay updated and chat with the official referees by posting here:


If you choose to join us on the day of the Tournament as a spectator, then you will find that our forums or official Tournament page will be the best place to find info on the latest winners of the rounds. The final matches in the final hour will be recorded and come Monday you will be able to see the courageous men, women, boys and girls fight to their animated death. One will stand victorious at the end.

For honor. For love. For golden Xbox.
