In a couple of weeks or less, we’ll be releasing Pit People Update 5: Infinite Wisdom. The update will release in late September, so definitely check back in to get the full changelist when it goes out.
Here are just a few of the changes in the update: An entirely new challenging mode (Permadeath), a rebalance of the entire game to go with the rework of the new leveling progression numbers, ability to do the co-op intro online, faster PVP rounds, language translations, streamer-friendly music option, and more!
With the rebalance you’ll find that your fighters are dealing even more damage as they gain experience. All balance changes are retro-active meaning you do not have to worry about starting over or starting new characters in order to experience that – they’re all dynamically applied to what you already have!
The partial road maps:
Update 5 Road Map (Steam)
Update 5 Road Map (Xbox One)
As always, the main Story (although not included in this update) is being developed alongside all these improvements we have been releasing.
See you all in the Pit!
It feels like it was just yesterday when we celebrated our 10-year-anniversary — But it wasn’t! On September 19, 2017, it’ll be fourteen years since we formed the studio and became an “official” company.
From our 10th anniversary celebration at PAX Prime
To celebrate our teenage years as a company, we’ll be doing a live stream of our first game, Alien Hominid. We’ll be playing the HD version on Xbox One (via backward compatibility).
Live Streaming September 19th – 2:00PM to 3:00PM PST
What: Alien Hominid HD (on Xbox One via backward compatibility)
When: Tuesday, September 19 | Starting 2PM PST / 5PM EST
Where: We’ll be hosting the live stream on the Behemoth’s Twitch channel, Mixer channel and Facebook Live simultaneously!
Who: Our team will play the game, and you can supply the questions in chat
Why: Fathered by Tom Fulp and Dan Paladin, Alien Hominid on Newgrounds was the Flash game that brought The Behemoth together. It seems like a perfect way to celebrate our anniversary!
Giveaways on our Social Networks
We’ll also be giving out keychains on three of our major social channels, so be sure to follow us on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram for more chances to win your choice of a Behemoth Chicken keychain or Alien Hominid keychain!
Looking forward to celebrating with y’all. Thanks for all of your support these past 14 years!
The last two days of the Expo flew by so quickly since the booth was packed on both days!

We continued to have a line at our Gift Shop and for the Pit People PVP Challenge. We held the PVP Challenge on Day 3 and added it to Day 4 since it was so popular!
Several players made it past Round 3 and a couple came back on Monday, Day 4, to battle other Round 3 winners! Here are some of the winners from Day 3 and Day 4:
There were 4 players who returned to battle Best of 3 fights to get the grand cash prize! Coincidentally, both grand prize matches were friend versus friend.
The fight against Brandon and George was especially fun to watch since those two usually co-op and they know each other’s strategies!
Winner: Danny (pictured on left)
Runner-up: Sam (pictured on right)
Draw! We ran out of time since doors closed and they had both won a fight. So they both won and split the cash prize!

We had such a blast this year! On Day 4, some of our team members (Ian, John and myself) picked up the microphones to do the Round 3 and Grand Prize match commentary.
Since we’re not professionals, you can imagine the randomness that came up in conversation. We talked about fart blasts, Ian’s distaste of Gorgon snakes, and John kept heckling Chris Hecker at the Spy Party booth!
Thank you again to everyone who came by our booth this year at PAX West 2017! We always love seeing your faces and seeing people play our games. See you again next year!
