What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

The Pit: Infinity is ideal for Early Access. We are taking an established, content-heavy 2D Roguelike title that people love and translating it into the Unreal Engine with hybrid FPS elements. Early Access is the perfect opportunity to get feedback from a new crop of players as well as those familiar with the original Sword of the Stars: The Pit.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“The game should be transitioning to full release in 6-12 months, (Q2 2019 – Q4 2019), based on the level of support.”

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

“The minimum features of the game are already in place. We will be working to improve and polish those core features, add some additional features, including 4-player Co-op multiplayer, the Final Floor and the crafting system. We'll also put in a lot more content. The main focus will be adding more items, weapons, and environments.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“Players can currently play through 30 randomly generated floors. They can play as one of three Character classes, using dozens of weapons while scavenging for food, medicine, ammo, armor and tools. It is a complete game-play experience, but it can be improved by adding the hundreds of additional weapons, armors, foods, modifications, recipes, and other items from the original game, Sword of the Stars: The Pit.”

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

“Yes. There will be a large difference in the amount of content and the scope of gameplay between the initial Early Access game and the final release. The price of the game will reflect this. The earlier you support the game, the less it will cost.”

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

“We will be making ourselves available to the community through our Discord server, our company forums, and the Steam community page. We will be sharing a loose timeline and advance information about major updates, discussing content additions, and gathering feedback on various aspects of the game, which we will then use to plan our future updates. We will be doing smaller updates and bug fixes between major updates, which we will both communicate to players and use as an opportunity to make small additions or changes to the game based on their feedback.”

The Pit: Infinity Update Adds Multiplayer Co-op!

Hi everyone! It's exciting times as we've reached a big update milestone with multiplayer being added to The Pit: Infinity! As discussed, when The Pit: Infinity launched as a Steam Early Access title in October of last year, we would start with an initial, singleplayer version of our FPS/Roguelike hybrid, and then update with multiplayer co-operative gameplay in the new year. Now, that major milestone has been realized – now you and two friends can join forces to take on The Pit!

The Pit: Infinity is an Early-Access game and like all Early Access games, we want to hear from you. Report any bugs you find, with as much info for us as possible - while we make a big deal about these big feature updates, we are constantly doing smaller content updates and bug hotfixes.

A NOTE: Since this is a big update, and a lot of things have been added, PLEASE make sure that you start a new game for each Character. Also note that your messages will have been wiped, and you'll need to find and decode them again. We apologize for that, but a small price to pay as we continue to grow the game.

We here at Kerberos truly appreciate your ongoing support!

Multiplayer Co-op Update Friday March 15th!

Soon you will be able to work together with two of your friends to try and not die in The Pit! And when that fails, at least you won't die alone!

As planned with The Pit: Infinity's initial release on Steam Early Access, our first major update would be to add multiplayer cooperative play, along with continued work on the game in general. Now you can set up a multiplayer game for you and up to two friends to join forces and take on The Pit.

The update will go live on Friday, March 15th - new players will have a two-day grace period to jump into the game at the initial Early Access price of $9.99 before we increase pricing to $19.99. If you wanted to wait until the game had multiplayer support before jumping in, now is the time to jump in fast and take advantage of some release price savings!

We'll do an update announcement, with full details on what's in the update, on Friday.

“Right now, it's a steal....it's good to buy in early, and watch it as it grows.”
Saving Content

“Here’s a bold prediction. Kerberos Studios Pit Infinity will be a runaway hit. And not just one of those cult sleepers, name-dropped for cred at gatherings of those in the know. A bona fide smash. It sounds ludicrous to predict the fortune of an unfinished game, one still slick with Early Access afterbirth, but I have that tingling sensation.”
Stately Play

“PI is in the Top 5 Early Access Games this month. I am very fascinated by how the developer is pivoting from a turn-based roguelike to this current project… and personally I will be keeping a close eye on this!”

Support the game in Early Access!

The Pit: Infinity is a hybrid of FPS controls, roguelike RPG mechanics and procedurally generated environments, developed with the Unreal engine. Its combination of art, science fiction world-building and gameplay is unique. Nothing quite like it has been done before.

Most of the available FPS games on the market offer a minimal selection of weapons and opponents, very simple power-ups and little investment in building your character. Most of the available RPG’s on the market are long-term investments in a single story-line, no limited multiplayer options and very little replayability. Other indie teams have attempted to combine procedurally generated levels, FPS controls and roguelike mechanics in the past, but they seldom brought realistic 3D art, science fiction setting and survival horror atmosphere to the table.

The Pit: Infinity is something different from what has come before. And that’s a good thing. We are trying to create a game that will re-invent a genre. The Pit: Infinity now has most of its core features in place. It is stable and playable for the development team, and we are ready for players to put it to the test and help shape its content.

Currently the game supports keyboard and mouse on a standard PC screen. Use of console controllers is on the developer wish-list for the future. Your camera and inventory controls are a standard first- person shooter model with some additional inventory and feedback.

About This Game

The Pit: Infinity is a cooperative rpg with first-person-shooter controls and roguelike permadeath. It is meant to be played solo, or cooperatively with up to three friends.

Players will take on the role of a Marine, Scout or Engineer character and enter the Pit, a high-tech dungeon in which diabolical experiments are performed on life forms gathered from all over the galaxy.

Game Features:
  • Start as one of three unique Characters, each with different Attributes, Skills and Items!
  • Explore procedurally generated hallways, rooms and biomes!
  • Battle monsters and robots to gain experience and loot!
  • Open locked doors and rifle through alien treasure troves, seeking supplies, ammunition and gear!
  • Gain Levels to improve your Attributes and Skills!
  • Collect components and craft new items to improve your chances of survival!
  • Delve as deep into the Pit as you can, before you’re horribly killed! Each new floor becomes more challenging and progressively more difficult to beat.


Mature Content Description

The developers describe the content like this:

As a SolForce soldier, players will combat a variety of alien monsters. There is frequent weapon violence, minimal blood and gore.
