BattleBlock Theater Gets Release Window

Posted on February 28, 2013 AT 11:54am

A poem posted on The Behemoth’s developer blog points to a spring 2013 release window for their upcoming 2-D side-scrolling platformer, BattleBlock Theater.

BattleBlock Theater is the follow up to The Behemoth’s XBLA smash hit, Castle Crashers.

Here is the poem in question, titled “A Prisoner’s Tale,” as it appears on The Behemoth’s developer blog:

The guard did growleth as he pushed us out,
Catnip stanking up each breath.
“Your turn has come at last,” he mewed,
His eyes aglow with death.

In leaps and bounds, the course was run;
We gave it every ounce of heart.
So silently, the audience sat enrapt,
That thou couldst hear a kitten fart.

But when we came to that final jump
Promising freedom from my cell,
My companion, she did puncheth me,
And laughed loudly as I fell.

Falling, falling… I wonder now,
Won’t our imprisonment ever cease?!
Mayhaps someone will Spring my friends…
Mayhaps they near Release!

The poem also came with a new video of BattleBlock Theater in action:
