The folks at The Behemoth stopped by for not only a Q&A but took over our Twitch channel for an exclusive look at the Steam version of BattleBlock Theater, available now. During the Q&A, they discussed the origins of BBT, the truth behind their cat obsession, and just how much friendships may or may not factor into the creation of a game.

You can read the full Q&A recap here or watch the Twitch dev demo here.

Community Highlights
What is your favorite tank? by Robert117
Raptr member Robert117’s favorite tank in World of Tanks is the tier six German heavy, the VK 3601(H). It may move slowly, but it delivers a lot of bang. Do you have a favorite WoT tank?

What’s one of the craziest things that has happened to you in a game? by GAMERZWRATH
While walking into a tunnel in Fallout 3, Raptr member GAMERZWRATH experienced a glitch that caused his character to fall through the wasteland, losing all his possessions. His love for the game kept him playing, however. Got a similar/better story of in-game woe, due to a bug or otherwise?
