The developer behind Alien Hominid and Castle Crashers will soon begin a closed beta for its upcoming title, BattleBlock Theater. Head over to the official site to sign up, where you can also check out all the associated legal nonsense. It should be noted, you need a 360 and an Xbox Live Gold Account to participate.
Set to release on XBLA, BattleBlock Theater is described as a co-operative/competitive platformer where players are subject to the will of one Hatty Hattington. Having crashed on a deserted island, he now forces others to participate in various types of gladiatorial combat, all for the sake of treasure. The closed beta will take place sometime during February and March, and will include 10,000 participants.
