Armless Octopus: Battleblock Theater preview: labryinthine fun

Dylan Martin of Armless Octopus details his hands on experience of Battleblock Theater at PAX East 2011.

"A recent trend in game design shows that not only can dying be fun, but it should. Games like Super Meat Boy encourage us to take on intense challenges through failure and frustration because of that succulent little splat and the short time it takes to get there again. An upcoming 2D platformer by the name of Battleblock Theater continues this trend and adds the opportunity to off your friends—over and over again—while cooperating in order to reach a common goal." (BattleBlock Theater, PAX East, Xbox 360)
