Pit People Early Access in 2017

earlyaccessdatecity

After two very helpful closed betas in September and October, we continued development on Pit People with tons of feedback from the gaming community. It was the first time we had a closed beta for two platforms in the same year!
 
Now, we’re going for our next milestone, which is having our first game ever in Xbox One Game Preview AND 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 in the same year!

SO! You wish to know why we are doing this?? I shall tell you at once!
 
After implementing our changes post-beta, holding onto the game in its current state just feels weird. The core gameplay is complete and we’ll be adding content until the full version is released. We feel that Pit People is at a point where we’ll confidently say there’s more than enough fun, content, variety, value and play-time to keep someone happy. We won’t sell something unless it meets these standards, so it definitely seems like it is time! This will also be a good opportunity to monitor the balance in the game and continue getting feedback from you and the gaming community as we finish up!
 
Feel free to come along with us on this trip (when you dip I dip we dip).

New Merch in our Online Store!

HOT OFF THE PRESSES! New Pit People Fighter Hoodie!
HOT OFF THE PRESSES! New Pit People Fighter Hoodie!

It’s that time of year where we get fancy new gear to give holiday cheer! We’ve just added several merch items to our Online Store!

The Pit People Fighter Hoodie that you see above has never been shown or sold before today. The design is based on one of our most popular Pit People t-shirt designs, but in a warm and cozy pullover hoodie edition. Now you can still show off your favorite Pit People creatures even on the coldest days of winter!

The photo has the hoodie modeled by our very own Ian Moreno. For those of you who have played the Pit People demo or beta, you may recognize his voice as Yosef — oh, and he’s also one of our game developers and makes music too! The rest of the items below are also modeled by Ian with the exception of the baby onesies (we tried but it just didn’t work). Click on any image below to go to the Store page.
