<MESSAGE END // 11-15-2018>*

Happy Eve of Halloween Eve, everyone! We are excited to announce that our newest Pit People update, “Pitlicious”, is now available on Steam and Xbox One

Aside from new adventures and quality of life additions, Update 7 is full of those “hey, wouldn’t it be cool if…?” moments we’ve been jotting down since development began. Things like…

  • “Wouldn’t it be cool if those bear blood storms could happen any time?
  • “What about a bunch of quests in a big city? Crowded streets, hot dog carts, skyscrapers…
  • “OOH, a prison break! Sheep Mascots! A level full of dynamite. Just dynamite. EVERYWHERE.”

 

Whether you can stand toe to toe with General Custard or are as innocent as a wee babe, Pitlicious has something strange and wonderful for you!

Update 7 includes the following:
