THE TIME HAS COME! Pit People is out on Steam Early Access! We can’t wait to get your feedback and we are glad to have you join us in our journey!

Some of you have been with us since the beginning when it was first known as Game 4 , and many of you have already helped us out since our Closed Betas in the fall of 2016. (If you beta tested and you’re curious what has been updated since 2016, check out this changelist.)

If you own our other games, like Castle Crashers, you should receive items in Pit People for having them!



For you beautiful boppin’ Behemoth fans you’ll get the added bonus of cross-game unlocks in Pit People for owning our other games on the same Steam account.
Click here to see how to unlock in Steam.

Pit People is now available on Steam! Early pioneers of the game will receive permanent access to the full game for $14.99USD. When the game is in full release it will be $19.99USD -- but anyone who already owns the game would have their version automatically upgraded at no additional charge.

That’s right! If you dive in now you’ll get the game at a discounted price AND you can help us raise this thing like you’d raise a roof or a child. I suppose neither one of those things being raised is completely accurate but I’m sure you understand. We will be raising whatever this thing is together, indirectly and/or directly. Yes sir or ma’am, you get 100% custody of your roof/child/videogame for only a fraction of the cost! No custody battles today!!!!

Now I know you might find yourself wondering: “But..Dan, what about Mariah Carey?” or “I’m still not sure if that dress was gold or blue?” and to be perfectly honest, I don’t really know. I have no idea what to tell you about those things.

However, what I do know is that here at the Behemoth we’re all having a wonderful day. We finally get to send our project out into the world feeling confident that it’s got more than enough nougat in there to satisfy you (Snickers Satisfies) until complete completion!

Just hop onto Steam and grab it up!

We look forward to getting your feedback during this Early Access period. Feel free to drop us a line on the Pit People Steam Forums, or our Discord.

We hope you’ll also come join our Pit People events next week as our level designers stream Pit People and I’ll be joining PC Gamer Show as a guest. See you then!

We’re aiming for our next milestone, which is having our first game ever on Steam Early Access starting January 13, 2017! Pit People will be the first time we do early access and it’ll be the first time we release a digital title on two separate platforms (the other being Xbox One) in the same year!

ABOUT PIT PEOPLE
In this fast-paced, turn-based, co-op adventure players will quest and explore, find awesome loot, customize fighters, and recruit strange species! Pit People is a strategic game of positioning with single player story mode, two player co-op story mode, and up to four players for 2v2 in the Arena. This game is currently being developed for Xbox One and Steam.

We’re hosting another Halloween Contest this year (our 9th annual!!) and we’re looking forward to seeing what you come up with!




To enter our contest just post a photo of your Behemoth related costumes or decorations in this thread on our Behemoth forums. Behemoth related games include BattleBlock Theater, Castle Crashers, Alien Hominid, Alien Hominid PDA Games, Super Soviet Missile Mastar, or Dad ‘N Me. You could even do characters based on our current game in development, Pit People!

This thread will be locked on November 2nd at 5PM PDT, so be sure to get your entries in before we close the contest. We will review the entries and on November 4th we’ll select three winners for each category: (1) Costumes; (2) Decorations. That means we’re giving out 6 prize packages!

As always, judging will be based on creativity, originality, and hilarity or ability to inspire fear. Prize packages will include a Pit People Fighter tee and commemorative Behemoth pin (available only at PAX shows we exhibit at), plus your choice of Alien Hominid HD, Castle Crashers, or BattleBlock Theater game code (if you already own all three games, then you can give it to a friend!).






Rules:
  • Group entries are allowed! (Note: One prize per winning entry is awarded)
  • Your entry must be your own creation (or your group’s, parent’s, family’s).
  • Only new costumes and decoration entries will be accepted (entries that were submitted in previous years will not be eligible).
  • Cosplay images are acceptable as long as they weren’t entered in a previous contest.
  • Decorations can include pumpkin carvings, special treats, or other decorations in or outside of your abode.
  • You may enter more than once.


Need ideas?? Check out all the exemplary entries from the winners of our last Halloween contest HERE!

We try not to post too many non Castle Crashers announcements in this hub, but we're too excited for our upcoming event and really wanted to share this info:



Our Pit People Steam Closed Beta begins next week on September 28th! Pit People is our latest game in development. It's a fast-paced, turn-based, co-op adventure featuring our signature art style and humor!

If you haven’t signed up for the Steam Closed Beta, you can still register by going to http://www.pitpeople.com/beta/steam

For those who Beta Tested for the Xbox One closed beta, the signup does not carry over, so you’ll need to register for the Steam Closed Beta as well. Just make sure to sign up with all the same info that you did for Xbox One and you should automatically qualify.

The Steam Beta will include all or most of the work we’ve been doing throughout the Xbox One Beta build running, so if you played the Xbox One beta last week and join us on Steam next week then you’re sure to run into new unlocks, areas, maps, balance changes and features within. A whole weapon category for humans was completely rehauled into something NEW! Whoa! See you there!
