Next Week will see the much loved Castle Crashers making its last move in its console wide conquest and finally reach the PC community. Castle Crashers is a great game full of irreverent humour from the creative minds at The Behermoth, a two man team consisting of Dan Paladin and Tom Fulp.
The Behermoth was founded in 2001 when Dan Paladin and Tom Flup met and creating their first title Alien Homind. Needless to say from the release of Alien Homind on Newgrounds it was an instant success and allowed the two to take the game to the console market.
Castle Crashers began development in 2005 wrapping up in 2008 with its debut on the Xbox Live Marketplace in August of 2008 and was from its start a very well received title averaging 80%. It has been a much loved title by many and is such a fun game to play with a group of friends in its 4-player co-op on one console.
The jump to PC may be partly in line with Steam’s new Big picture as I am sure this will take full advantage of the new interface in Steam, creating a more console feel. It will also support full internet multiplayer that is also going to be cross platform. This is a great addition as you can play with your friends on console who got Castle Crashers back at launch.
Castle Crashers is a really fun game to play with a group of friends and has a fantastic art style along with highly enjoyable gameplay. I am sure many PC owners have been waiting for this title for a long time now, but your wait is finally over. The price has not be announced yet but the Steam page can be found here, it is available for both PC and Mac. To keep up with all the latests from The Behemoth their official site is here.
