The Behemoth (or The Behemoth Company) is a video game development company that was created in 2002 by John Baez, artist Dan Paladin (a.k.a. Synj), and programmers Tom Fulp (the creator of the popular Newgrounds Flash website), Brandon LaCava, and Nick Dryburgh. Dryburgh later left the company. The Behemoth development studio is located in San Diego, California. The company is known for producing simple games with Paladin's signature 2D style.

Their first console game, Alien Hominid, gained critical acclaim by the media and the members of The Behemoth quickly gained status as indie developers focused on bringing old-school styles of video games back into mainstream gaming.

The Behemoth's second game, Castle Crashers, was released August 27, 2008 for Xbox 360, August 31, 2010 for PlayStation 3, and September 26, 2012 Steam.

The Behemoth's third game, BattleBlock Theater, was released April 3, 2013 on Xbox Live Arcade and May 15, 2014 on Steam.

They are currently in development of a new game, Pit People.

History

During August 2002, Tom Fulp and Dan Paladin collaborated in creating the Flash game Alien Hominid for Newgrounds. The game has since become extremely popular and generated over fourteen million hits and rising. Later in the year, Paladin was working on developing a console video game when co-worker Baez approached him. He was a fan of Alien Hominid and asked Paladin if he was interested in developing the game for consoles. When Baez offered to produce the game, Fulp and Paladin eventually agreed, recruited LaCava and Dryburgh, and formed The Behemoth.
