Behemoth's Castle Crashers Releasing to PC on Steam

Though The Behemoth's beat-em-'up game Castle Crashers has long been out on console—four years for Xbox 360, and two for PS3—it's yet to come to PC.

In fact, of The Behemoth's games have actually come to the PC platform, barring a Flash prototype of Alien Hominid. Strange, considering lead programmer Tom Fulp's status as the founder of Newgrounds, a website dedicated to Flash-based games that has found most success (for the most part) on PC.

Recently, The Behemoth revealed on its developer blog that Castle Crashers would be coming to Steam. The game's Steam store page launched days ago, confirming that the release date is September 26, 2012. The developer also revealed that the game will be made available for both Windows and Mac.

Sadly, Linux gamers are going to (once again) either resort to Wine or sit this one out.

    Some of these "indie" games are kind of crappy. REMAKE Wurm Online with slightly better visuals & enhanced gameplay!

    Only thing keeping me on Windows is games. I'd bail in a heartbeat if Linux would run them all.

    I probably would have been interested in buying this if it had come out on PC 4 years ago, or maybe even 2 years ago. My friends had it on Xbox/PS3, and it looked cool. But that was years ago. Not much interest anymore.

    I'm sure lots of gamers would jump to Linux if they could. But to say a HUGE drop in windows? No way.... I bet that it wont even be noticed.

    This is not even close to reality. OpenGL is absolutely archaic under Linux as compared to OpenGL under Windows, especially with AMD hardware (not as much Nvidia). Direct3D9+ is significantly faster than OpenGL when the application allows a choice. I wanted to use Linux for my latest AMD A8/6670 HTPC/Gaming machine but there's just no performance comparison when I switched over to Windows 7.
