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
