Humans and Weapon Classes in Pit People

The Pit People closed betas have come and gone, but we’re still processing all of the wonderfully helpful feedback we got from all of the beta testers! In case you missed it, the first thing we did was pull some of the stats from both betas and combined some of the most interesting ones into an infographic. We’re continuing development based on a lot of feedback and once we have an update for the game, we’ll post here.


Until then, we’ve got another unique Pit People fighter post! For the first time in Pit People blog history, we aren’t looking at strange creatures; This time we’re focusing on the most cornerstone fighter of them all. The human!
(Just in case anyone is wondering, no, we have not covered all of the creature types in Pit People just yet! More to come..)

Pit People Beta Outcomes

The Xbox One and Steam closed beta phases for Pit People have now officially come to a close, and with it we are all the much wiser! We had an incredible number of people playing passionately. From those people comes lots and lots of statistics, feedback, and valuable information. What kinds? Well, here’s just some that we thought might be interesting:
