A New Addition in a New Edition

We have heard the cries from the community to bring our honorable knights to the world of PC gaming…

Well wipe those tears from your cheeks because…….

Castle Crashers on Steam is almost here!

How we’ve longed to deliver this game in its new vessel. We know you’ve had that kind of longing too. Here’s some great quotes:

geo_player, from Twitter: “Yo quisiera el Castle crashers en steam pero seguro no ;_;”
Tiago, from Facebook: “pls release castle crashers to pc PPLLLLLLLLS!”
Anonymous: I hate you guys, when is battleblock coming out????????

Before we get into the details of the game, Dan has written a Poem for this occasion, enjoy:

A Poem by Dan Paladin:

While BattleBlock has been churning, there’s another wheel turning! And that wheel is Castle Crashers running on Steam!

It was accomplished by utilizing one of our programming teams! We always liked this platform so it’s kind of a dream!

I’d say a release date but the future’s unknown. If I make a mistake I shall never atone.

If you’re in Germany this weekend please say hi to John.  He is presenting our Steam game at Gamescom.  If you’re extra nice maybe a hands on!

 Schnell!  Schnell!  And Fare thee well!
