Behemoth has a great record when it comes to co-op games: Alien Hominid and Castle Crashers are each excellent, combining old school gameplay with great design and humor. We've been watching developments about their next title, known previously as 'Game #3'. The new name is BattleBlock Theater, and lots of new information about it has hit Behemoth's blog.
Coming to Xbox Live Arcade "sometime in 2010", BattleBlock Theater is the story of a shipwrecked protagonist, who is betrayed and then imprisoned with hundreds of others, forced to perform in deadly dramatic productions. Sound weird? Indeed, but it also sounds like lots of fun. The new BattleBlock Theater FAQ promises co-op, and the new official trailer is certainly worth a look. Anyone else excited for this one?
