Castle Crashers was one of several standout titles to flood Microsoft's Xbox Live Arcade last August. The well-received quirky beat-'em-up marked the second original game from San Diego-based independent developer The Behemoth, which had previously been known for the equally off-kilter side-scrolling shooter Alien Hominid.
This week, in a post to its official development blog, The Behemoth offered the first clues on its third game, currently operating under the aptly named working title "Game #3." A screenshot for the game shows what appears to be a tearful Irish shop keeper with a cuboid head being taunted with a massive green diamond. In the background, a seeming army of malevolent robots appears to be guarding a wall of vaults.
The Behemoth expects to debut the first trailer for Game #3 via its blog on March 18, and will be on hand at the Tokyo Anime Fair on March 20-March 21 to offer a first look at an "uber-early" version of the game.
