Ok the 4th game is out now and I’d like to share my theory. I think the timeline is actually in chronological order. I think it makes sense because even though castlecrashers appears to be in a much earlier or post apocalyptic timeline I think it can be explained simply by the fact that this is a fictional earth, and the behemoth can do whatever they want to it.
In pit people we can clearly see the differences in cities as places like the Pip’s castle seams mideavel while the Jerkdome seams to be very technologically advanced. I think it’s entirley possible that this is how earth has been for quite some time now and after honey hug crashed into the earth these locations remained unharmed after all the bear only did damage to the buildings it landed on.
So the bear only destroyed a few things and most of the apocalypse is the chaos from the creatures. So if we go by what I’ve previously stated the location of castle crashes could be in a completely separate part of earth maybe even a different continent. I think alien hominid faught the end boss and he didn’t die and instead was captured later on. Then the aliens came back to earth and captured the castle crashers.
After the knights return the crystal someone else steals it and uses is magic to curse the hat and brought it off to battle block island. Years after this the war from catsle crashes has ended and four friends from a different location in the world sail off to battle block island and follow their best friend hatty into the theater. Hatty now is wearing the hat. I would like to point out that time travel is definitely possible as their is time travel in one of the bonus missions not to mention the speckled horse wishes.
Either way after harry is thrown into the ocean and launches the laser into space. The laser hits alien hominid who’s flying to earth to check up on the aliens from castle crashers who’s mission had failed after they all died in the crash. It then hits honey hug who lands on earth causing chaos. I also think that battle block theater is a true story that happened when I said it did but the game is after the events of pit people.
At the end of battle block theater the narrater rambles on about how he gets it. Almost as if he’s connecting the dots of what happened with the laser to why the bear crashed into to earth in that time period.
