The Behemoth has made some great games in the past including: Alien Hominid and Castle Crashers. They plan to continue their legacy with an all new game called Battle Block Theater. The game is set for release this spring and will take “couch co-op” to a whole new level. We briefly played this title last year at SDCC and was able to interview Lead Level Designer Aaron JungJohann, follow this link for more on that interview.
The beta testing for Battle Block Theater has commenced and will see up to 10,000 gamers gain entrance. Along with the closed beta testing The Behemoth has revealed that the game will have 30 achievements for players dedicated to the cause. The full list of achievements for Battle Block Theater is below. Be sure to check out the game when it is released for Xbox 360 later this spring!
