Being unconventional dudes, The Behemoth, creators of gems like Castle Crashers and Alien Hominid, produced this unconventional opening for its upcoming multiplayer platformer BattleBlock Theater, telling the shipwreck tale of of Hatty Hattington and his best friend, um, round head guy.

This video doesn't tell you much about BattleBlock Theater's gameplay, but the opening cutscene does reveal much about the humor and tone of the game, as well as the goofiness of the writers at Bethemoth. For a preview of the co-op and competitive gameplay, watch the clip after the break.

BattleBlock Theater is scheduled to release for XBLA some time this year.
