Behemoth pegs next game for 2010

Teaser trailer for upcoming platformer released a day ahead of schedule; system(s) yet to be determined.

Since its inception in 2003, The Behemoth has released two games: the multiplatform shooter Alien Hominid and the Xbox 360 downloadable beat-'em-up Castle Crashers. While the studio's output has been less than prodigious to date, The Behemoth is looking to step up its release schedule by finishing its third game for 2010.

Yup, that's a Behemoth game.

The studio today announced the release window in the first teaser trailer for the as-yet-untitled game. While the game appears to be a platformer, glimpses of the action show a multitude of wrinkles in the standard formula. One clip shows the apparently customized characters working cooperatively to traverse the landscape. Another shows them blowing each other away with guns and grenades. Still others show the characters playing soccer or competitively highlighting portions of the level with their distinct colors.

Beyond the glimpses offered in the trailer, details about the game are nonexistent. The Behemoth said it hasn't determined a price point for the game yet, or even which console it will be on. For more on the studio's last title, check out GameSpot's review of Castle Crashers.

Well so far every game behemoth has made has been pure distilled Gold. Can't wait for this one as well.

Ok... there watched it. Hum, the coop platforming seems interesting as well as other other 'minigames' (right word?) like soccer and such. Anyhow, will definitely check out the demo when it shows up.

Behemoth is amazing. Great games with great artistic styles are right up my alley. And The_Dude1212: Amen.

I can't wait. I love Alien Hominid and I've been playing castle crashers like a maniac. I only expect good things from The Behemoth so I won't be disappointed.

Behemoth does great work im excited for anything they release. They take old style games and make something total original.

Just because Trans-Siberian Orchestra recently did their take on the song featured in the film recently, this game has now earned the pending status of EPIC.

if they said 2010, they deliver 2011. the game SHOULD be awesome anyway and will worth the long wait. Allien Hominid and Castle Crashers are AAA 2d games. About the video... i know that is very very early to say nothing, but graphics wise... it looks like a flash game O_o

Oh, heck yeah! That trailer puts Braid to shame, Behemoth Project 3 is going to rule 2010. What looks like co-op platforming and the return of quirky multiplayer games = win!

Wow, the teaser trailer isn't even hosted at GS... too bad the office network blocks vimeo. Guess I'll have to watch it later.
