The game itself looks pretty quirky and that's a good thing, while i tend to talk down about platformers in the past Escape Goat 2 officially made me like them again for just how smooth it was.
Battleblock Theatre releases in around 2 weeks time on Steam with some fun looking art and solid looking game-play. It looks like the game itself is whacky as hell and could be a real indie gem for co-op players with lots of frantic jumping around grabbing jems.
Shipwrecked. Captured. Betrayed. Forced to perform for an audience of cats? Yes, all that and more when you unlock BattleBlock Theater! There’s no turning back once you've started on your quest to free over 300 of your imprisoned friends from evil technological cats. Immerse yourself in this mind bending tale of treachery as you use your arsenal of weapon-tools to battle your way through hundreds of levels in order to discover the puzzling truth behind BattleBlock Theater.
If solo acts aren't your style, go online or bring a buddy couch-side to play a thoroughly co-optimized quest or enter the arenas. The game also includes a level editor so you can craft your own mind bending trials!
