The Behemoth is announcing Game 5 soon and I'm stoked


I love all of their games for different reasons

[Update: Surprise, surprise. The Behemoth’s Game 5 is Alien Hominid Invasion.]

The Behemoth, the beloved studio behind Castle Crashers, is gearing up to publicly reveal its next game. The team plans to announce “Game 5” on a live stream at 5:00pm Pacific on January 30, 2020.

As much as everyone would cherish a sequel to their personal favorite Behemoth game – take your pick between Alien Hominid, Castle Crashers, BattleBlock Theater, and Pit People – I’d keep dreaming.

Given the developer’s history of genre-jumping, it’s tough to predict what’s next, and that’s what makes this mystery project so enticing. The Behemoth is always trying to branch out with games that feel fresh, and a little bit out-there, yet true to its core. We’ll soon see if Game 5 continues the trend.

(For what it’s worth, I would be ecstatic about another co-op platformer.)
