As word of the ancient Bloodweaver facility travels to the stars in hushed whispers and shadowy conversations, Enoch The Shepherd, a holy warrior, must investigate.

As one of a small, unique, but growing group of Zuul, determined to leave their savage birthright and terrible reputation behind, Enoch isn't descending into The Pit out of curiosity, but out of obligation.

Whatever evil is still down there, it is on him to witness it, record it...

...and then purify it with fire.

  • 1 new playable character, The Shepherd, a Zuul.
  • 8 new monsters!
  • 5 new armors!
  • 19 new items!
  • 13 new recipes!
  • 13 new weapons!

With The Pit: Pilgrim DLC, players can now challenge The Pit with all the races of the Sword of the Stars Universe! You wanted to play as Zuul, and we heard you!

The Pit Gold 1.2.5 changelog + Gold Edition Demo!

14 Aprile 2014

While The Pit has been humming along nicely, there were a few small things we wanted to go in and clean up and now we have. Most important is we've added some protection against losing your recipe and message progress, which could happen with some rare bad timing when the game was trying to save your updated profile.

And for a year now, players have had a demo using the base version of the game to try it out - well, no longer. We've updated the demo build to the Gold Edition era, allowing you to fight through the first ten levels as you would in the full game. You can also play as the Psion as well as the Marine, in order to try out some Psi powers. That's approximately 20hours of gameplay... free!

Changelog v1.2.5

  • Safeguards against losing unlocked messages, recipes, etc. added!
    (the circumstances causing the losses can't be avoided, but losses automatically replaced now.)
  • Improved inventory item selection using controller/keyboard.
  • Improved variety for levels in Infinite mode.
  • Fixed: Can right-click to target.
  • Fixed: "Beware the Blob!" achievement was not being unlocked on Steam.
  • Fixed: Tally towards achieving "Jaynus: Robot Hunter" award now working properly.
  • Blandwich achievement fixed in demo.
  • Two new weapons!
  • Three new monsters!
  • More recipes and messages!

GOLD EDITION DEMO!
  • Play demo to level ten (hours of gameplay! Free!)
  • New character in Demo! Play as Psion!

"There is such a wealth to do and upgrade that it never feels like you’re saying the same game twice."
8/10 - Game Podunk

"The Pit delivers a solid experience and should be a must buy for fans of the genre. And remember, in space, no one can hear you scream as you die for the forty-second time."
Twonk Hammer

"The tired old roguelike mechanic of running away gets more tense when you can’t see if the monster is still chasing you, and if it’s gaining on you!"
Dragon Chasers

Informazioni sul gioco

A deadly plague ravages your world. Your last hope: a legendary alien facility dug deep into the Feldspar Mountains...a massive Pit, built by the ancient Suul'ka.

If 'The Pit' really exists, there might be something left. Something that will give your doctors a fighting chance at the cure.

All you know for sure is that every expedition into those mountains has failed to return...

And Nothing Sows Death Like the Suul'ka.

Quamdiu Poteris Superesse?

Sword of the Stars: The Pit is a fun, fast, light-hearted turn-based RPG, where the tradition of Rogue and other old school dungeon-diving games meets the sci-fi Sword of the Stars universe, where the question to ask isn't "Did you make it to the end?" so much as "How far did you make it into The Pit before the monsters got you?"

Be brave, press on for the sake of your planet, and when all else fails, go out in a blaze of glory!

Key Features

  • Over 100 items to discover, ranging from the familiar to ancient exotic tech.

Dimenticatevi la prima parte del titolo, fate proprio finta che non esista! Questo gioco avrebbe potuto chiamarsi anche “Peppino nel pianeta misterioso” e non avrebbe cambiato una virgola. Perché vi dico questo? Per evitare che anche voi facciate il mio stesso errore! The Pit è probabilmente uno dei più bei roguelike che siano apparsi sui nostri schermi! Ora che l’ho finalmente detto, vediamo di dargli una occhiata un po’ più profonda.

An utterly compelling turn-based gem. I've never been one for Roguelikes, albeit content with minimalist graphics, ASCII lies beyond my tolerance, so I'm fairly new to the genre. Also, being a compulsive cleptomaniac in RPGs, permadeath and losing all my gleefully scavenged goodies has never been a positive factor. However, this has gripped me. Starting out is a little grindy, as you must unlock vital crafting recipes (i'd recommend the wiki) to really stand a chance at not starving to death early on. However, due to heavy randomisation, progress can hinge on redundant plans and experience is required to know how you can adapt.

The more you play, the more you learn and damn, is there much to learn as you desperately try to manage your equipment and potentially useful crafting items to survive another floor. Utterly brutal, but brilliant. Highly recommended, though not a short affair like FTL (even pre-DLC) and thus quite the voracious time-vampire, should you befall to it's charms.

(In the interests of full disclosure, this review is based on the Gold Edition - which should be considered the best option available).

It's nethack, but not your father or your mother's nethack. This is tried and tested "Get in from the frozen exterior of a planet into a secret underground base that extends downwards further than any greedy dwarf dared dig." model, but brought up to date with a solid lick of paint, high resolution graphics, and a clear and consistent approach to enemies, objects and overall design.

The story, what there is, is much the norm for such roguelikes, it's merely the pretext for getting you to the front of the dungeon, the reality is that this is a true roguelike, you go as far as you can, aiming to reach the bottom of the pit, or die messily along the way. You only have one life, no do-overs. Unlike a lot of "modern" nethacks, this one goes back to roll style checks for skill tests, and gives an extensive list of possible talents to sculpt and model your character. The Gold edition additionally features several extra classes, giving you a respectable pool of choices, both human and nonhuman in nature (playing as an alien ranger is -awesome- ).

Scattered throughout each randomly generated floor is a variety of traps, both tile and door based, locked chests and rooms, and various devices that may help or hinder your ability to progress. Ranging from defunct cookers that need repairing to prepare a simple blandwich (Don't ask what's in one, really, you don't want to know..), to advanced and somewhat dotty security computers that may just as readily electrocute you as deactivate the several heavily armed and armoured droids patrolling the area.

The game operates functionally as a turn based game, with each discrete action you take allowing the AI the opportunity to respond (hint - if the game pauses briefly between moves, there's something nearby, and it's almost certainly unfriendly). You take an action, the AI takes an action, repeat until either you or whatever the AI sent your way has collapsed in a pool of it's own fluids. When dealing with multiple foes, target selection becomes important, you can if you feel confident let the computer handle targetting and it does a sensible enough job, but on occasion you'll want to step in yourself to ensure that the scariest thing dies first. Combat employs a wide variety of melee and projectile weapons, and in keeping with the future sci-fi aesthetic, these can be pretty fantastical, including laser, plasma and other interesting effects.

In such games, death can come in many ways, here is no exception. Simply being impaled is for novices, try being irradiated, choked by a mimic pretending to be a med station, diseased by an out of control experiment, or being melted in acid. It is important to note that in these games - Death is an opportunity to learn, not a signal of failure. Go in expecting to die a lot, and the ultimate victory will be that much sweeter.

This game is not for the faint of heart, but it is well worth the effort, and for an intermediate roguelike player, someone who's cut their teeth on more forgiving entries to the genre (Dungeons of Dredmor is a great place to start), this is the logical progression. Welcome to The Pit. Enjoy your stay.

One of my favourite games of all time and a close call for GOTY for me.
This snuck up on me earlier in the year and after I gave the demo a go I was instantly hooked and bought the full game, and subsequent expansions over the course of the year.
With endless replayability, the game is an excellent Rogue-like where your chosen character must traverse through an ever-descending series of floors. The monsters (of which there are so, so many different and unique types) get harder the deeper you go, the loot gets progressively better although is still wonderfully randomised -- sometimes you are cursing your lack of equipment, other times you get lucky. Food is scarce, so you must scavenge to stay alive. You can craft items and food from recipes which you can discover through experimentation or by hacking computer terminals and gradually uncovering pieces of text leading you to the full recipe. This element adds to the replayability as you'll likely learn something new from each run.
The game is brutally hard as you crank up the difficult level, but for those looking for an easier time the Easy setting is much more forgiving.

So yeah, if you like Rogue-likes and want an extremely polished turn-based game with wonderful graphical style, sound and huge replayability, I can't recommend this enough :)

Sword of the Stars!

There are some things in gaming that will just never, ever get old, going deeper and deeper into a dungeon while looting everything there possibly is to loot being one of them. You can't miss with this basic premise, but you can certainly sweeten the pot. Making the loot drool worthy is a complicated exercise in tug-of-war: too strong, and you'll never find improvments, not enough and you have your players getting bored. SotS deftly walks this tightrope with a deep crafting system and the depth of the game itself.

Let me explain what I mean by that a little more: The game is pretty difficult (if you're playing correctly :^)) but there are A LOT of cool things to find that can be a big help. Whether it's a electronic chip that boosts your computer skill to max level, or a sick, sick piece of armor, every cool find is made cooler by the hope of getting deeper into your run they represent.

You start the game having to choose a difficulty (at least hard for the most fun) and a class. The differences in the classes are refreshingly pronounced and greatly influence how the game plays out. The Commando has a big advantage with starting equipment and stats, but doesn't grow as fast as the Scout (whom will get one or two shotted on the first few floors of the Pit).

Combat is fluid and lovely. The game is actually turn based so standing still gives you time to size up situations and make a decision. Everything takes place on a grid. The game has a magic ability to shoot at the square you want even when you misclick. Seriously, it's uncanny.

As with most roguelikes, your goal is to get as far as you can. I think you can actually beat this game but it's harder than a mother ♥♥♥♥er. Replay value is built in with the roguelike genre, but The Pit particularly so since the game changes even more than normal from run to run and class to class.

8.4/10
