It's been a long, winding road for The Behemoth's latest game project, Battleblock Theater, and at one point it appeared that it might never come out.  But thankfully, the developers are heading towards the finish line with the game, as it's due for a release sometime this year.

In fact, to show how much progress it's made, The Behemoth recently announced a closed beta, allowing some lucky testers to give it a go over the next couple of months, just to make sure everything is up to speed.

10,000 users will be picked in all, and – get this – you can actually take part!  The Behemoth is taking applications over at its beta page, where all you need to do is fill out information, giving your Xbox 360 stats, signing up for Behemoth's forums and providing other details.  Relax, not your credit card number.

You can head over here to sign up, but hurry, this won't last long.  We'll see you in the Theater!
