      Update 5: Infinite Wisdom is here!   10/05/2017

        Hey everyone, We’re back with another update that really mixes some stuff up. An entirely new challenging mode, a rebalance of the entire game to go with the rework of the new leveling progression numbers, ability to do the co-op intro online, faster PVP rounds, language translations and more! With the rebalance you’ll find that your fighters are dealing even more damage as they gain experience. All balance changes are retro-active meaning you do not have to worry about starting over or starting new characters in order to experience that – they’re all dynamically applied to what you already have! Feel free to check out what we’ve changed in the list below, and as always – please leave us feedback about anything you find noteworthy. As always, the main Story (although not included in this update) is being developed alongside all these improvements we have been releasing. Check out our blog for the full changelist: http://blog.thebehemoth.com/2017/09/28/update-5-infinite-wisdom-is-here/

The one thats headline can't be read is the same article as "Hostage release uncertain. Cats are well dressed." You can tell because the edge of it thats sticking out has the same picture and words.

Though this doesn't have to do with release dates, do you think the backwards text on the main page has any significance?

Here's how it should read:

I've seen it, not really sure what it means. Maybe a hint towards a new mode?

That's what I was thinking. Man, a gladiator mode would be sweet.

What I'm thinking now though is that the Castle Crashers could be considered gladiators. Maybe that's an excerpt from another prisoner's file and it's one of the Castle Crashers.

Hold on, something just occurred to me. If BattleBlock Theater opened in 1929, and prisoner 10293 has been captive in BattleBlock Theater for 65 years, doesn't that mean this game takes place during or after the 90's? Either that, or there's something we don't know yet.

Unless it opens in 2029 and the game takes place in the future :shock:

1.- There is no way they could be hinting on the RD since the game will be tested at microsoft before releasing.

2.- I noticed those dates and the upside down text too, but i seriously think it's just random data in there to fill space or just drive us crazy. Just my guesses

Imo it might be the window of time in which they release it. Ie no earlier than july 13 and no later than August 10.
