I just played Castle Crashers for the first time a few nights ago. It was fun, although my buds were several levels higher than me by the time we got to the wedding stagecoach thing.

Best co-op mode? Are you kidding me? I haven't been able to play one level without the connection going to shit, yes even with the patch... And no my connection is fine, I got no problems with halo 3 or any other game, this sucks my n*gga.

Quick, take out advertisements with leading game sites and magazines referring to Castle Crashers as the official Game of the Year (in smaller font saying XBLA), including a long list of other awards from this vote and other awards gained in the past in smaller text with it.
Then schedule a number of interviews on popular gaming shows and segments, in which you make sure to plug Newgrounds as the ideal place to find up-and-coming game developers.

Hurry up and get the Necro pack out!

Pressure's on for Game #3 to be every bit as show stopping as Crashers now.

I think they mean from a fun standpoint. Not the "tedious fratboys, 14 year olds, and douchebags who take everything too serious" standpoint generally adopted by every online experience I or anyone I know has ever had with Halo.

I bought it and I thought it was one of the best games in the xbox live arcade. I also voted for it. Damn, I love Newgrounds... And you, Tom. ;)

I really want to get Castle Crashers, but I don't have a 360. And I don't think a PC version will be coming out any time soon. :(

Oh man, this is GREAT FUCKING NEWS!

Finally, NG gets the props it deserves.
This kind of thing is why I chose to frequent NG instead of other flash sites, like ebaumsworld and albinoblacksheep; the admins don't just host flash- they MAKE flash. They know the stuff that make their sites roll, and they can relate to their communities that much more.

Great job on CC, fellas, and may the next Behemoth game be even more successful.

Wow! That's a pretty big accomplishment. Congratulations to the Castle Crashers team!

Now there will be pressure for the next game you make to surpass Castle Crashers.

Well deserved, Tom & Behemoth. If I wasn't so poor, I'd have an Xbox so I could actually play CC.
