The Behemoth is an independent console game developer and publisher founded by John Baez, Dan Paladin, and Tom Fulp. We specialize in making memorable experiences that are both fun to play and beautiful to look at. We are headquartered in San Diego, California, and create original properties that are developed and published in-house. Our mission is to make video games and toys that make your brains explode!

Our first offering, Alien Hominid HD, picks up where 2D gaming left off in the mid-90s, and continues the evolution! In 2008 we released our second title, Castle Crashers. It took us about 3 years of development to finish this title and all the hard work has helped secure it as the best selling and top rated title on the Xbox Live Marketplace. Castle Crashers is available on three platforms. Our third title and most recent title is BattleBlock Theater. It's the largest game we've ever created with more characters, levels, unlockables than any of our previous titles. BattleBlock Theater released in April 3, 2013 for Xbox LIVE Arcade and has since released on Steam as well for Windows, Mac, and Linux. Our fourth game, Pit People, is currently in development. It's a fast-paced turn-based co-op adventure coming sometime soon.

Our development is 100% self-funded with support from fans who support our cause!
