For all the details surrouding the multi-platform releases, head on over to the PS3 section. Here, though, let’s put BattleBlock Theater under the microscope for a close inspection.

BattleBlock Theater
Genre – Adventure/Puzzle Game
Developer – The Behemoth
R.R.P. – $15.00/£10.00/1200 Microsoft Points (Approximately)

Eyeing a hat-trick of successful indie releases, the next game from developer The Behemoth will be called BattleBlock Theater and takes players on an immersive adventure set at sea. The studio’s previous two games, Alien Hominid and Castle Crashers, were individually chaotic 2D adventures that shared a unique, hand-drawn aesthetic.

For BattleBlock Theater, though, players take charge of Hatty Hattington who winds up shipwrecked on a desert island which, unbeknownst to him, holds a secret within a mysterious theater. The game has been designed to incorporate co-operative play and will encourage players to work in tandem to complete challenges, avoid pitfalls and all other forms of nasties hidden within The Behemoth’s expertly created world. The publisher has enjoyed continued success since their inception in 2003, as a matter of fact Castle Crashers remains one of the most downloaded titles on Xbox Live with a whopping 2.6 million copies. Which is a sure sign that BattleBlock Theater deserves your attention come Wednesday.
