The Behemoth Tease New Game, Has World-Destroying Bear

Bet it's a survival game really

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 returns in this short teaser for Behemoth's next game, currently only known as Game 4. It seems to be set in a world plunged into chaos by a giant bear colliding with Earth. Sweet!

Or maybe we do know its name and it's literally called "Game 4".

Teaser trailers normally make me angry, causing me to burn all my belongings as an irrational expression of frustration at not having all the information I want immediately, right now, as soon as I want it. But this is funny and so I forgive it. The description beneath the YouTube video is also good:

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. Maybe you can find a hint in the video about which genre it is??

The obvious guess, based on the teaser trailer, would be the "survival" genre. But I hope not. I hope it's a game about launching interstellar spacebears, swinging them around gravity wells to destroy planets. We'll find out come PAX Prime next week.

Thanks, Eurogamer!
