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!”

Pit People’s Final Touches!




It has been nearly a year since we launched Pit People on early access. This journey has been an incredible experience! We’ve built a better game thanks to all your feedback.

So here’s a spicy little situation: We’ve decided that our next big drop will be the FULL version of the game! Yes, it shall be complete! You'll be able to play through the story and find out what happens for everyone.




As we write this, we’re working on the last of the cinematics for the story campaign! This is the final push towards completing the game, alongside additional story quests and a new world map with bonus missions.




Since there’s so much involved with these last steps (VO, animation, level creation, music licensing, QA testing, etc), we’re not exactly sure when everything will line up for a full release date, but we’re shooting to release within the first few months of 2018.




Thank you again to all of the people who’ve been playing Pit People during early access and to everyone who has been sending us feedback. It has truly been invaluable and we can’t wait to share the conclusion of Pit People with you all!

Pit People Update 5a: Infinite Wisdom Hotfix



Today’s hotfix carries several important changes.

Apparently people are not fans of getting lost, so we installed a GPS on your wagon. You will now see the way home on the worldmap at all times. ...Because wagons have GPS signals, everyone knows that.

For some new players, the costs of the initial expansions in their home felt too high, especially after spending all their gold on cages. Well, not anymore we hope!

We have more details about our hotfix below.

Changelist:

=============
Design / Visual
=============

  • Slowed the Octoclops spawn rate for Chog story quest (in solo)
  • Changed the team slot costs in the House (now costs 300 and 550 gold to unlock)
  • Home Icon in the world map has been added back in

=============
Balance Changes
=============

  • Small drop on flat damage of troll minis and snake minis
  • Small drop on flat status-chance-per-level that were granted


=============
Programming
=============

  • Added metrics tracking during battles where the player chooses to exit or restart
  • Fixed pillow throw animation
  • Added additional music track for streamer friendly setting
  • Double chance of getting colored, shaky, and wavy random names for gladiators.
  • Fixed crash when 2 local users started an online session on Xbox One.

In a couple of weeks we’ll return to release some release info!!!!!
