Welcome to In The Lab, Geekenstein’s livestreaming show where we check out upcoming and recently released games to see if they’re worth your time and money. Here Alex, David and Hapa Games’ Eric Elzy check out the PC release of BattleBlock Theater. Yes, David and Random Assault‘s Alex may have checked this out already. But that wasn’t on PC! So, uh, we needed to play this one. There were evil cats to vanquish and snarky narrators to listen to.
BattleBlock Theater is the latest game from The Behemoth, developers of Castle Crashers and Alien Hominid. When on board the S.S. Friendship for a grand day with the greatest friend of all, Hatty Hattington, a storm runs the ship aground a strange island. The cat masters of the island kidnap Hatty and, using a mind controlling top hat, command him to force you through a gauntlet of challenges.
