PAX East 2018 – Booth 14005

Pit People has officially launched but the fun doesn’t stop there! We’re already working on our next update for the game and we’re also planning our Boston trip in April. This year the expo runs for four days so you’ll be able to visit us for an extra day!

Come to visit us at Booth 14005 where we’ll have arcade cabinets for Pit People (single player and 2-player Co-Op), Castle Crashers Remastered, BattleBlock Theater, and Alien Hominid HD.

We’re also bringing back our Gift Shop with tons of official merch, including new Pit People figurines, a PAX East 2018 exclusive shirt, new patches in our Chonku Chonku machines, and more! Click here for the mega list of merch we'll have at PAX East.

There are also several events that will be happening that week at PAX East. Here’s what we’ve got confirmed so far:

The First Blood Challenge will focus on 1v1 battles in the Pit. Any PAX East attendee is welcome to join! Click for rules and prize info.

See you in April!

Last week’s community events with Pit People

ICYMI: Pit People officially released on Steam and Xbox One! To celebrate, we held a reddit AMA last Wednesday and had a live stream of Pit People with the Devs on Thursday.

Pit People Fan Art Contest
We’ve got another event coming up on the Newgrounds site! Make some original art based on Pit People and upload on Newgrounds by 11:59PM EST on Wednesday, March 28th, for a chance to win a code for Pit People. (Note – original deadline was March 18th but it was extended after requests for more time.)

Tag your entry with “pitpeople” and feel welcome to link to it in this thread as well. If you aren’t a scouted artist on NG, they’ll still find your entry!

Entries will be judged by Pit People artist Dan Paladin, with the top ten being gifted Pit People Steam keys.

Already own it? Gift a copy to a friend! You can use this thread to discuss Pit People fan art and share your works in progress!

If you didn’t get a chance to make it to these events, you can always check out our Discord server to chat with other community members and our staff when we’re around (which is pretty much every weekday). Come chat about games and share your fan art!
