With the release of Pit People this past March, we were given an opportunity to share our game with the world, and to allow the world to share with us. Here's a recap of our experience at PLAY Paris, a new show powered by PAX.
Based in San Diego, California
Previously referred to as "Game 4," this is the fourth game title by The Behemoth. Shortly before the release of BattleBlock Theater we started working on something new. We schemed up a bunch of concepts and picked our strongest one. From there we fleshed out the lone survivor prototype!!! As it grew stronger and stronger, we polished it, furnished it with delights, and added (gluten free?) sprinkles. Yes, as the chicken dictates, this game is of a genre we haven't covered before and seek to breathe a new flavor into.
