Pit People Steam Closed Beta starts next week, September 28th!

We try not to post too many non Castle Crashers announcements in this hub, but we're too excited for our upcoming event and really wanted to share this info:



Our Pit People Steam Closed Beta begins next week on September 28th! Pit People is our latest game in development. It's a fast-paced, turn-based, co-op adventure featuring our signature art style and humor!

If you haven’t signed up for the Steam Closed Beta, you can still register by going to http://www.pitpeople.com/beta/steam

For those who Beta Tested for the Xbox One closed beta, the signup does not carry over, so you’ll need to register for the Steam Closed Beta as well. Just make sure to sign up with all the same info that you did for Xbox One and you should automatically qualify.

The Steam Beta will include all or most of the work we’ve been doing throughout the Xbox One Beta build running, so if you played the Xbox One beta last week and join us on Steam next week then you’re sure to run into new unlocks, areas, maps, balance changes and features within. A whole weapon category for humans was completely rehauled into something NEW! Whoa! See you there!

Honestly, i can say that this is a game that i returned to over and over again to play. I played the Xbox version of it a lot and I can say whole-heartedly that this is a game worth the time and money, with each time playing through with a new character feeling like a fresh new start.

I revieced this game off of my mate as a gift, and holy hell it is just amazing.
I love the characters, the story is fun to play and I love all of the new game modes. I think I remember playing this a few times on the PlayStation but I used to suck at it, it is so much simpler to play with a keyboard and mouse, especially since you can customize it to your personal preferences.

Recently bought myself the Blacksmith character, total bad ♥♥♥.

Sigh. Where do I start?
Castle crashers is a jule for me, same with a lot of people. It dose have a repetive game though. Yet, Theres something just about the beat 'em up games that I loved, and I feel like this game puts it out there the most. With the wide choice of characters, there is almost no limit. Anyone with a love for the cartonny, yet dark humor, would adore this game. Words can not express how much time i've put into this game on the X-Box 360, and the soundtrack is Beautiful.

Pros:
Great community.
Wide range of characters.
Co-op.
Soundtrack.

Cons:
Repetiteve.
Lots of grinding in the works.
Insane mode is almost impossible.

I really do suggest this game, its also cheap.





And screw Ice King. Wow is he annoying.

Very fun game especially when playing with friends/online, it is also fun playing solo as well but not as fun when playing online. There is pets and swords to collect which is a good feature in the game which makes it endless fun however the game is a bit short I wish they made it a bit longer, however there is also online modes for when you are bored of story mode so i rate it 9/10 very fun game.

One of the best party games I've ever played. The game has a massive amount of detail and polish to it. The game is short to an extent but you will be replaying it around 5-6 times just to unlock everything, if not more! I have completed this on Xbox 360 multiple times, so ignore my time played.

I give it 10/10 Prunes
