BattleBlock Theater Screen 1

Microsoft’s free games with gold program offers up the second game for July for its Xbox 360 owners.

Earlier in the month Xbox Live Games with Gold made Gotham City Imposters available to its Gold members for free. Today the second free game is up for download until the end of the month – Battleblock Theater.

Another Xbox Live Arcade title, BattleBlock Theater is an off-the-wall 2D platformer developed by The Behemoth (Alien Hominid and Castle Crashers), that uses a puppet show style to tell its story in the cut-scenes with Hatty Hattington as the narrator. After surviving a shipwreck aboard the S.S. Friendship, players find themselves on an island and must find shelter. Upon discovering that the inhabitants of the island have made Hatty their new leader, you become a prisoner and must complete challenges for the inhabitants’ amusement. It’s all rather nuts really, but we like that!

Take a look at the game trailer below.

August's free Games with Gold are yet to be announced, but we’ll give you the details as and when they are.
