The Pit gets a treat filled Halloween update as part of Steam's Halloween Sale!
Besides being able to pick up The Pit Gold (which contains the base game and the first two DLC expansions) for 75% off (upgrade to Gold at 50% off), The Pit has been updated with some Halloween treats, including two new achievements;
Pumpkin King - Carve a Fear Lantern
Army of Darkness - Kill 100 Zuul Ghouls!
Haven't found the recipe for crafting a Fear Lantern? It's been out since last Halloween, but if you want to get down to carving instead of hacking consoles, here's the recipe;
pumpkin + sparker + scent gland + razorteeth
And for one week, the upper layers of The Pit will give you ample Ghoul targets - don't panic, stay calm, conserve your ammo, aim for the head. The achievements will remain, so don't worry if you don't manage to get this this week.
Happy Halloween, everybody!

Upgrade from The Pit or Mindgames to The Pit Gold Edition at 50% off!
In a simultaneous release, Kerberos Productions has unveiled new DLC for their two most recent games, Sword of the Stars: The Pit and Sword of the Stars: Ground Pounders. As both feature the alien Tarka race it was only natural to name this Tark Week!
The Pit: Juggernaut introduces Pit fans to a new playable character, the Tarka mercenary, Tor. The Juggernaut DLC adds new weapons and weapon variants, new items, new monsters, and over 50 new craft recipes, including ammo conversion recipes! Found lots of ammo, but for the wrong gun? There’s a recipe for that. The addition of Tor brings the number of player characters in the series to 11!
“After all the other characters we tossed into The Pit”, Said producer Christopher Stewart. “Fans were keen to play as a Tarkas changed male, one of the largest and most powerful characters in the SotSverse, and our loremaster Arinn Dembo was more than happy to oblige.”
Get the The Pit: Juggernaut here!
Note: The Juggernaut DLC requires The Pit: Gold to play. It does not require The Pilgrim DLC.
Mac and Linux depots builds will be available Friday, September 26th.
Filling out the alien character types found in the Sword of the Stars universe comes The Pit: Juggernaut - take control of a massive, changed Tarka male,Tor Makari, a clanless mercenary, born on the Tarka Freehold of Kor Daia. Summoned to Arbuda by the promise of a huge reward, he is here to rescue a kidnapped Human from a high-security alien facility and pull down the biggest bounty of his career. As a changed male, Tor is big, bad, and do not let his lumbering manner fool you - he is no dummy. He is a force to be reckoned with, nigh unstoppable. He is a... JUGGERNAUT!
"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."
"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!"
As part of the Steam Halloween Weekend Sale, you can pick up The Pit Gold Edition for 75% off (early adopters can upgrade to Gold for 50%!) - but that's not all. We've added two new Halloween achievements and a new Halloween enemy. The Zuul Ghoul!
We've made some tweaks so the Halloween fun is right there in the upper levels and we'll tweak them back. Don't worry - they're not gone. They're just lurking in the shadows... OF THE PIT!
