Early Access Game

Get instant access and start playing; get involved with this game as it develops.

Note: This Early Access game is not complete and may or may not change further. If you are not excited to play this game in its current state, then you should wait to see if the game progresses further in development. Learn more

What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“After 3 years we feel this game is something with enough variety, fun, quality, content, polish, stability and overall completion. It's far enough along for anyone who'd like to play the game before its final release date. We will be monitoring balance of all 1,300+ items for both versus, exploration and story sequences. We'll also be considering any and all feedback the community has for us!”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“The aim is no longer than a year and no shorter than a couple months.”

How is the full version planned to differ from the Early Access version?

“In the final version, the Story will be complete. We'll be filling out the Quests and Worldmaps, and we'll attempt to be polishing everything that seems to need it the most to players.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“The core gameplay is complete and we’ll be adding content until the full version is released. The Pit People Early Access experience will include a sizeable chunk of the Story mission, plus access to several world maps (yes, there are more than one!), quests, Unfair Challenge against the AI, and Versus mode. The game can be experienced as a single player or two-player cooperative mode. Additionally, versus can be played with up to 4 people in 2v2. All multiplayer modes can be played locally or online!”

Will the game be priced differently during and after Early Access?

“Yep. When the game is completed, it will cost more than it does now. ORDER TODAY!”

How are you planning on involving the Community in your development process?

“We've had a history of listening to our audience for the past 13 years, and we won't be stopping anytime soon! We've met with thousands of players over the years by going to tradeshows. During Early Access, we plan on checking all methods of contacting us and consider everything people have to tell us. We'll be adventuring and battling it out with people in the community as well!”

Update 2b: HOTFIX info

Hi! Here's what just dropped:

  • Fixed WASD+Mouse reticle issue with wagon on the worldmap.

  • Balance pass on Spidaur, Mushroom, NRG-B0.

  • Fixed other Mouse Cursor issues (also issue when switching from gamepad to mouse).

  • Fixed copy+paste error for chat.

========================
Other issues coming soon(tm): Frequency of narrator impatience will be lowered. Gorgon helm visual will be fixed. Another balance sweep anticipated. Local co-op camera will be adjusted.
========================

PREVIOUS HOTFIX 2a included the following:

  • Auto-battler speeds have been sped back up to be somewhere between "instant" and "yesterday's values".

  • Lowered the rate at which our game was thought to be a Trojan virus by Symantec/Norton Antivirus software.

  • Removed 'So you wanna be a Cannibal?' Quest which snuck its way in a bit earlier than intended and was incomplete.

  • Rebalanced Pit Points in relation to Auto-battler, Unfair Challenge, and Insane Unfair Challenge.

  • Rebalanced Pit Points in relation to a certain exploit (Gonna slap your butts, exploiters! I will SLAP your butts!!!)

  • Fixed issue with Online PVP battle not awarding points to losing team.

  • Fixed typo for "Special^c" fighter name.
