      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/

Behemoth Continuity, And How Bbt Relates (Theory) [Possible Spoilers!]

Recommended Posts

The following is a fan theory about how Alien Hominid, Castle Crashers and and Battleblock Theater relate to each other in regards to continuity. The following may also contain spoilers on any of the three game

 

The Behemoth's version of Earth is a parallel version of our Earth with the key difference being the omnipotent divine creator in TB's Earth (their God) is a cosmic bear know as Honey Hug who creates creatures and allows them to live in order to entertain and eternally slaves to him.

 

Now, Battleblock Theater takes place before both Castle Crashers and Alien Hominid. After Honey Hug created Earth, he craved spectacle and sacrifice, which frightened the only sentient creatures HH created, felines. The felines, or cats if you will, lacked the coordination to appease HH, but HH spared them of death, instead creating a new race of being, Humans to appease him. One human in particular, Purrham Furbottom, was told by HH to lead the cats in their attempts at sacrifice. He was given a special hat to show his dominance/dominion over the cats, and created an illuminati-type organization to control the goings-on in the world and insure HH didn't obliterate them and was appeased.

So, Furbottom was the head of this cat organization, and would very secretly and (as humanely as possible) capture people to entertain HH in the theater, and when he was bored of them, be murdered. Furbottom and the cats lived very happily, because HH was being properly appeased and allowed them to prosper. However, one day Furbottom croaked (specifically he s*!+ himself to death) and the cats panicked, who would lead them and keep HH from showing his wrath? They were deemed unfit to lead already, but they soon became aware of one of Furbottom's secrets, the hat was actually a military weapon, constructed to fire a laser so powerful it could destory HH, bite the hand that feeds, free them of their chains. However, the hat could not be properly used by the cats, so for years they continued to to capture prisoners, although now in a violent way. This angered HH, and made him get up from his metaphorically literal bed in the cosmos and journey towards TB Earth to destroy all of his creations in a fit of rage. The cats then frantically tried to put the hat on their prisoners, but started noticing the hats actually sucked in the souls of those who wore it. Eventually, after the events of BBT ensue and Hatty is rescued (during the ending cutscene), his soul finally had the last of itself sucked out of Hatty's body and into the hat, which in turn had been so filled that it exploded and activated its lasers, which was able to nearly kill HH and incapacitated him for many years.

HH, barely alive, limped back further into the cosmos and ended up in a coma-like state to recover.

 

The same laser as before (from Hatty's hat) also destroyed a spaceship piloted by an alien passing by.

Enter Alien Hominid.

So now Hatty's souless body is at the bottom of the sea and Alien Hominid crashes in the USA where the events of Alien Hominid ensue, all the while their wrathful god, Honey Hug, is still incapacitated. After Alien Hominid escapes, he goes back to his home planet and brings all of his race back down to capture the beefy FBI produced Alien. While there, they looked around and saw how much damage one Alien could do to this unprotected society, and decided to enslave humanity.

Many years later, HH recovers/regenerates and sees how these Aliens have now become children of the Hominid instead of worshipers unto himself. In his rage he decided to unleash a nuclear holocaust sorta deal on the Earth, destroying most everything with few survivors, most of which being Aliens. The few survivors rebuild society in a Medieval-type way, seeing how most technology was wiped out by HH. 

 

Sidebar: Thinking he destroyed everyone already, HH abandons this Earth for new ventures seeing how there is presumably nothing more there to entertain him.

 

Due to the radition/magic/whatever to call Honey Hug's power, some inhabitant's genes were altered a la the NBC show Heroes, granting them magical abilities, some use for good, some for evil, then the events of CC happen after a pre-emptive strike by the evil to the good, yadda yadda. After the events of CC, the large concentration of magic/whatever by The Wizard fight attracts HH as he discovers that civilization indeed still exists, and lives in blasphemy towards him, so he decides to finish this once and for all. Fearing their imminent demise, the heroes/knights team up with the alien who survived their feud in the desert level to construct a time machine powered by the Alien's technology and the knights' magic. They travel back in time to the days of Battleblock theater, where they make the following adjustments to the timeline:

 

Furbottom is saved (Hence his status as a secret prisoner in BBT), however the time machine malfunctions while their, instead of transporting the Alien, Knight and Purrham it ages them by decades (Hence Furbottom's middle-aged appearance when unlocked as a playable character). Being so different, he is not recognized by the cats and promptly imprisoned, along with the Alien and the Knight. The events then follow as usual since Furrbottom is still presumed dead by the Cats, however since he is not dead he is able to free Hatty's soul at the last second at the boat. Though Hatty then became a friend to all once more, this still left HH to destroy them all, so Purrham sacrificed himself to detonate the hat and incapacitate HH as before, now that they are free of HH and the cat's control, they use the technology of that time to fix the time machine and go back into the future with Hatty, only to find that history had repeated itself since Purrham still fulfilled the prophecy of shooting Honey Hug. However, now in the future (back in CC) Hatty and the alien come to help the knights fight with their abilities from different times (hence the BBT compatibility pack and the AH character you get in CC if you owned the game), In the end, they defeat the wizard but use the Alien's weaponry with the laser hat and obliterate HH once and for all, leaving the knights, villagers, aliens and others to rebuild civilization and live in peace.

Leaving anything open for Game 4 after, before, or during these events.

 

THE END.

 

 

 

Now of course, this is all crazy speculation and probably completely untrue, but if you can't tell I love BBT and TB"s other games enough to try and find the connection, so please leave comments citing whether or not you agree or disagree with these possibilities or just find it interesting, ya'll have a merry day now!

 

P.S. thanks again Behemoth for all three of these quality titles, we love you  :-D

I think your theory is a little bit odd, but you connected the three universes in an interesting way.

I had my own theory, similar to this, but I think that Honey Hug wasn't the creator of everything, but he wanted to take over the world via use of the cats, so he became the leader of bbt, before hatty. If you go into the hall of dudes, the last portrait has honey hug in it. I think Honey cursed the hat, so when hatty put it on, he went into a mental struggle against HH's evil left within the hat. At the end of the credits, when hatty lands at the bottom of the ocean and the laser is fired, it means that he won the mental battle (if you look closely, his tears disappear) and the laser was the cleansing of the hat, and it also kills the bear. I thought that the alien hominid ship being hit was just a reference to alien hominid, by the way.

Either way, hatty probably died because he was at the very bottom of the ocean. it would take a miracle or a golden whale to save him. XD

How Mr.Hatty thinks the games relate to each other...

 

How the Behemoth thinks they all relate to each other...

     All three games were created by the Behemoth.

 

LOL

No, Hatty was a vegetable. He could still swim up, but I don't want to go into details.

 

Dead bodies float, live bodies sink.

The way I see it is that they are all in the same universe.

Game 1: Castle Crashers

Medieval setting, creatures of all sorts roaming the planet.

Honey Hug is seen during Castle Crashers many times.

The Aliens from Alien Hominid are also featured and even have a whole level dedicated to them.

The beefy alien stays on the planet after ejecting to later be captured in Alien Hominid by the area 51 guys.

Game 2: Alien Hominid

Modern setting (2000's), the Aliens return to the planet after being defeated by the knights.

I am uncertain if honey hug is in Alien Hominid but the other evidence linking it to Castle Crashers is enough.

Game 3: BattleBlock Theater

Modern setting (40's I think, from the very Art Deco looking decor)

At the end of the game, Honey Hug is killed by the green beam of the hat and falls to the planet.

In chapter 7, the game mentions a princess nightmare which is clearly the Orange princess from Castle Crashers.

Game 4: Pit People

Medieval setting? ( it looks to be that way form the gameplay trailer)

Honey hug has landed on the planet and spewed his toxic blood over the inhabitants.

It may be that Honey hug somehow reversed time or the setting is not medieval.

 

This seems to fit together so nicely but there are hitches and missing links.

It could be the new Pixar theory or just that The Behemoth have gone over board on easter eggs and references in their games.
