Pit People Update 7: “Pitlicious” currently in development

We launched the full release of Pit People last month and since then we’ve been working on several additions & improvements for our game.

Pit People Update 7: Pitlicious will include the following:
  • 2 New Multi-Part City Quests
  • New world map content
  • New unlocks
  • 13 new Achievements
  • Flash bear blood storms throughout the game
  • Viewable fighter career stats in regular mode (similar to Obituary in Permadeath Mode)
  • The atmosphere of elite battles will be intensified (it’s going to get spookier!)

While there’s no release date to be announced yet, we wanted to share this info with the community to keep you in the loop! There will be other improvements included in Update 7 as well, so be sure to read the full changelist when it comes out with the update.


On a related note, part of our team is currently at PAX East 2018, so they can answer some questions if you want to know more about Pit People, the upcoming update, or about any of our other games!

Pit People Update 6b: Hotfix

We’ve just released a hotfix with a few improvements to the full release of Pit People Steam. Some of these contain spoilers so we’ve added spoiler tags to them!

  • Updated finale narration with new VO
  • Robot Judges in the Star Player mission are now correctly using electrobot voices any time they talk.
  • Removed "Jerkimedes" name in one of the Quest Dialogue bubbles (when Horatio is speaking)
  • Fixed Mr. Whispers Troll recruit quest - Mr. Whispers now actually wants a troll, not a cupcake.
  • All world map Elites are now vulnerable to nitro.
  • Fixed issue with the Mt. Olympus gate not opening.
  • Fixed a bug in Groomer Has It that prevented Hagatha from being captured.
  • Fixed issue so that fighters purchased in the Marquette retain their tint color.
  • Songs now change instantly when toggling Streamer-Friendly Music setting.
  • Updated streamer friendly alternate tracks.
  • We now prevent the selection of dungeon fighters when the sell prompt is active. This prevents accidentally selling dungeon fighters when using a mouse.
