Pit People VO Spotlight: Ashly Burch

(See the introduction of the full Pit People VO Cast in “The Voices of Pit People)

Generally speaking I like to give any creative person I’m working with a good amount of ‘room’. It creates the opportunity for the artist to breathe a lot of their own life into whatever they are doing. With Ashly, my approach remained the same. It’s always fun seeing someone knock stuff out of the park!

I went in very confident as I’ve known Ashly for years now and was certain she’d be able to nail the roles. The spectrum of characters we requested from her was pretty wide – there’s our iconic Recruitador Sofia, who wants to confidently claim everything on the planet for Spain in the gibberish form of the Spanish language. Then we have things like semi-creepy Spidaur ladies or partially insane Vampiresses. Then we have Hailey who has just the perfect amount of sass and tough love mixed together. I really couldn’t be happier.

There’s one recording Ashly made in particular that always makes me smirk a little when giving a female human a destination on the grid: “Ayyyyyyyyy..”


Tribeca Games Festival 2017 Recap

Last Friday, our very own John Baez and Ian Moreno went to New York City for one whirlwind weekend! They were there to attend & exhibit at the first ever Tribeca Games Festival, which was an event done in partnership with Kill Screen, and they brought Pit People with them.

Here’s a quick look at the arcade area during set up:

Our Pit People station was bustling on Friday night and Saturday morning. The arcade hours ran from 6:30PM-10:00PM EST on Friday and 9:30AM-2:00PM EST on Saturday. Attendees had their choice of playing our Pit People demo on solo mode or 2-player co-op mode using our custom built arcade sticks:

These controllers go with us to trade shows and are a fan favorite. Speaking of fans, we had a chance to meet and talk with several Behemoth games fans who attended the event! Thanks to everyone who stopped by our station!

We wanted to take more photos but we were so focused on running the station and getting pulled into great conversations with people that we only got to snap a few.

If you have any Pit People photos from the Tribeca Games Festival, please send them to us on Twitter, Instagram, or Facebook. We’d love to see what you saw! You can tag us in the photos on Twitter or Instagram, or share them with us on Facebook on a wall post or private message.

Thanks again to Kill Screen and Tribeca Games for having us in their Arcade in the inaugural Tribeca Games Festival!

Pit People’s Update 4 in Development

Hey everyone! We don’t have a date set for Pit People’s UPDATE 4: VIBRANT VILLAINS at this time, but we wanted to let you know why it might be taking a bit longer than our previous updates.

We’ll be having a couple main Story quests within Update 4! Encounter some new and old faces as Horatio tries to get his bearings in this next installment.

While Story will be our main focus in the next update, we also have other additional content throughout. You’ll find some brand new quests at the Quest Board that might yield very specific gear, for example. Or how about a whole new World Map with 15 quests scattered throughout? Sure, that’s in there, too! There are other improvements as well:

The House will have custom gear buttons for the creatures, the Marquette will display how many items you already have for any items being sold, the ability to choose to allow/disallow Auto-battlers from your PVP session, and more!

With the new Story quest and World Map missions, expect at least another 2.3 hours of content in Update 4 — but try not to expect too much of us or we’ll get really nervous!

Your patience has been much appreciated as we tighten those last screws for the send-out. We’ll be back with a date once we’re sure Update 4 is ready for action!
