Today, Pit People officially released on Steam and Xbox One! In just a little over a year, we were able to kiss early access goodbye thanks to the help of our Early Access & Game Preview supporters!
Pit People’s full release will include:
- Full Story including all cinematics
- Single player Story Mode
- 2 player local co-op
- 2 player online co-op
- Insane Mode
- Permadeath Mode
- 100+ missions and quests
- 200 regions to explore
- 1500+ unlocks
- Daily Tournaments (Unfair Challenge with up to 2 players, PVP with up to 4 players)
For those of you who have been playing since Early Access, you can check out the full changelist below.
We’re currently working on another update for the future, but when that comes out and what will be included will be finalized later, after analyzing release feedback. (For science!)
Some more good news: Pit People retails at $19.99 USD, but we’ve extended our early access discount until March 13, 2018. Get the game at 25% OFF ($14.99 USD) during its launch week!
We’ve also got a couple events going on next Week:
Wednesday, March 7th, 10AM PST / 1PM EST
Just days after the full release launch, we’ll be holding a reddit AMA at the IAmA subreddit. Come ask us anything about Pit People or any of our games. Bring us your words!
Live stream of Pit People
Thursday, March 8th, 3PM-5PM PST
We’ll be playing Pit People and talking in depth about its development. You can watch and chat during the live stream at one of our channels: Twitch, YouTube, Facebook.
It’ll be another chance to chat with our team about Pit People and what we’ve changed since early access. Speaking of which…
That’s right, Pit People has officially received its final touches and has a release date. On Friday, March 2nd, Pit people will be available for both Steam and Xbox One! You can pick it up early right now even, and watch it in your library, transforming before your very eyes!
For those of you who already have the early access copy of Pit People, thank you for being part of our game development journey! Our Early Access period lasted a total of 409 days. That’s one of the fastest records in Early Access history (no need to fact check this, it’s probably right)!
So what’s in the thing? The Story is completed, cinematics and all, along with a whole new World Map with 15 additional bonus missions. There’s been a lot of balancing, polish, and ‘quality of life’ features ‘n tweaks to go along with it! Definitely our largest changelist to date. If you want to see it in its official officialness, please check out our launch post on March 2nd!
We had over 100 entries this year for our Valentine’s Day Fan Art Contest! Thank you so much to everyone who put in so much love into each of their creations. Needless to say, it was difficult for our judges to narrow down their favorite picks since there were so many amazing artists. Out of all the entries, the following submissions made it to our Top 3. These artists captured the theme “love & friendship” and showed originality, creativity, effort and artistic abilities.
“Hope” by Gennadiy L.
“Smile! It’s for The Behemoth’s Valentine’s Day gallery! Done in coloured pencil and black/white pens on drawing paper, with bits and pieces from the four games. Mind the uvula!” – Drawing S.
“Sometimes it’s for the better that love is blind.” -Stephanie C.
Audience Award Winner
We also had a voting period where anyone could vote for their favorite fan art entries. The entry with the highest number of votes gets the Audience Award. With over 150 votes, the Audience Award goes to Jason F. and his Alien Hominid themed Valentine’s Day card!
“My Day 3 entry for the @thebehemothgames fan art competition. Have had much fun creating these 3 Behemoth Valentines day style cards. Certainly a little aomething different for me :D” – neuroticdesign
All four of these contestants will be getting a prize pack with a game code, a pink knight keychain, and their choice of a Pit People Rainbow Horse plush or Cupcake plush.
Thanks again to all the contestants and we hope to do this again next year! Til then, keep checking out our social channels (Twitter, Instagram, Facebook) for Fan Art Fridays <3
