thebehemothraptr-may12

Our team is headed back to Raptr for another helping of Raptr Q&A, but this time with a live streaming event!

 

Dan Paladin (Co-Founder/Art Director), Will Stamper (Narrator for BBT), Larry Bolden (Compliance Specialist), and I, Megan Lam (Community Captain) are taking over the Raptr Twitch channel on Monday, May 12 from 2:30-3:30PM PDT to demo the upcoming Steam version of BattleBlock Theater; we’ll show you what’s new and improved!

 

Then right after the stream, Emil Ayoubkhan (Project Manager) and Ian Moreno (Production Coordinator) will join us to answer all of your BattleBlock Theater or Behemoth-related questions on the Raptr Q&A page.

 

You can start leaving your Qs in the Raptr Q&A page HERE — and if you β€œLike” the questions you want answered the most, we’ll try to get to those first! Make your questions count as we’re giving away free five Steam copies of BattleBlock Theater, Behemoth swag (Cat guard dog toy + raccoon key chain combo), and 500 Reward Points to the best questions asked (as determined by Raptr staff).

 

Hope to chat with y’all on Monday!

 

Play with the Devs – Ep 10 – Recap

WebFront_CCPlayWithDevs

 

Yesterday, we had our first Play with the Devs live stream for 2014 on TwitchTV. It was an extra special episode since we had the rare chance to bring Tom Fulp, one of our co-founders and programmer, come on the stream to play Castle Crashers XBLA with the community. While our studio is located in San Diego, California, Tom lives and works in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. Luckily, he was visiting the studio this month so we stole him for an hour and put him in front of the camera.

 

Here's Tom preparing for battle before the live Twitch stream. He had a couple practice rounds before we got started.

Tom and I started the live stream with a development story that most people have never heard about. He wouldn’t even tell me what story he’d share before we went live with the stream!

 

Tom wouldn't tell me the story before the live stream so this is my genuine response to the Orange Princess and Painter Boss story.

Another part of the fun in our Play with the Devs streams is the ability to chat with fans and answer questions they may have about our games.

 
TwitchTV Viewer: “How do you manage working on both Newgrounds and the Behemoth stuff?

Tom: “Poorly.
 

Of course, there’s more to the story than that, but you’ll have to watch the full recording of our Play with the Devs episode if you didn’t catch it live!

 

 
P.S.
Answers to the trivia questions were:
1) Philadelphia, Pennsylvania
2) Orange knight [but we would have accepted Green knight or Hatty as well!]
3) Adam or Liam
 
Thank you to everyone who joined us in the chatrooms, who watched the stream, participated in the trivia contest, and big THANKS to the players who joined our Xbox LIVE parties to play Castle Crashers! Follow our TwitchTV Channel to get notified when the next stream goes live!
