Steam’s Spring Cleaning Event wants you to clear your backlog… Or just try a bunch of new games instead

I'm not sure if Valve's latest promotional wotsit on Steam knows whether it's coming or going. On one hand, it's nice that the Spring Cleaning Event (running until Monday, 28th May) is nudging players into trying out games they may have bought in sales and never touched, but pairing that with nine simultaneous free weekend events does somewhat undermine the message. Ah well, it's an excuse to…

Castle Crashers Update Smashes In Fancier Graphics

I associate Castle Crashers [official site] with an exciting time in video games. Downloadable games were really taking off, indie games were getting a whole lot more attention (and we all thought "indie" meant anything), and our very own RPS was re-founded. In all that, teeny team The Behemoth first released Castle Crashers, a pretty, silly, and fun hand-drawn beat 'em up (though it wouldn't…

Castle Crashers Remastered Is An Update On PC

A fancied up version of pretty beat 'em up Castle Crashers [official site] is in the works, we've known for a while, but less clear was quite how it was coming to PC. Aye, Castle Crashers Remastered will obviously be a new standalone game on that new Xbag, but how will we lot on our Professional Cogitators receive the higher framerates and nicer textures and…

Castle Crashers Remastered Announced

Castle Crashers [official site] is being remastered, despite only being released... oh, eight years ago? Yeah, fair enough then. I guess The Behemoth realised that they've not managed to outdo themselves in the years since, so may as well try and sell us the same game again. And we'll buy it, because Castle Crashers remains the best side scrolling co-op brawler since the days of…

The Behemoth Tease New Game, Has World-Destroying Bear

Developers The Behemoth are responsible for Alien Hominid, Castle Crashers and most recently BattleBlock Theater. Our Marsh Davies liked the latter when he leapt about its puzzley-platformy levels back in May. He was especially fond of its narrator, so "heroically entertaining it might singlehandedly save a much lesser game than this, interjecting with exclamations that are by turns snarky, sinister and silly." That same voice…

Castle Crashers Crashes Into Steam

A month ago, The Behemoth announced that – after a mere four years – its co-op bashathon for the ages, Castle Crashers, would finally be getting a PC port. Naturally, I hurled an Xbox (not mine, mind you; that'd be wasteful!) out a window in glee, only to cease my celebratory smashing when I noticed a listed release date of “unknown.” Now, though, I can…

Castle Crashers Dev Hoping To Bring Next Game To PC

Last week, I got excited and gush-puked all over this very website because The Behemoth's Castle Crashers is finally crashing (in a good way, I mean) our most castle-like of platforms. And hey, it only took... four years to get here. For now, meanwhile, the paradoxically tiny developer's next project, a co-op/competitive platformer called BattleBlock Theater whose main character is named Hatty Hattington (sold!), is…

Smashing: Castle Crashers Finally Coming To PC

It has been a very good day for castles and PC gaming - although one could argue that it's pretty difficult to have a bad day when you're a giant stone triumph of human ingenuity (unless you're being besieged or demolished and replaced with a McDonald's). First, we received word that Castlevania: Lords of Shadow 2 is in the process of whipping up a PC…
