The Behemoth, the guys that brought you the legendary co-op side-scroller, Castle Crashers, have in the works their newest title, BattleBlock Theater. This game is as classic a modern, arcade, co-op, puzzle platformer will ever get, so of course people are excited to see what this game holds for us. But what gave Castle Crashers its mega fanbase wasn’t only through its gameplay alone, but also through its quirky visual style as well.
In the game, players are forced to “put on a show” for a group of evil cats, as well as an evil hat (whatever that means), while working together with your co-op partners to try and escape your playtime enslavement. Jumping platform to platform to avoid deadly traps and obstacles, players can also collect wearable items that help add a customizable element to the puzzle game’s already bursting cartoonish charm.
But enough about details (you can read them over at our hands-on impressions article), check out the visual artists over at The Behemoth working hard to bring one, simple building in game to life; recorded live, then sped up 800% for your convenience. Gamers these days normally overlook how long some of these environments take to design and produce, so it’s nice to appreciate the artistic work alone from time to time:
