After three full days of showing off Pit People and our other games, our team is home now after some adventures in Boston for PAX East. We’re back to development and getting ready for the Pit People closed beta. You can sign up for our e-newsletter now to get our latest game updates, including notice when the closed beta registration form goes online.
For those who didn’t make it out to PAX East for our early sign ups, we’ll be posting more info and the registration form in the next few weeks.
For those who signed up at PAX East, we’ll be sending out an email in the next couple weeks to everyone and this Friday we’ll email out to those who wanted to opt in on the raffle. Keep an eye on your inboxes!


Press Coverage of Pit People

At this year’s PAX East, we had our first demo of Pit People co-op! It was awesome to get so much positive feedback from players on the show floor. Thank you to everyone who stopped by our booth to try our games on our custom built arcade cabinets!
We also had several interviews and they’re starting to pop up now. Here are just a few we’d like to share:

List of new merch coming to PAX East 2016

We’re excited to head back to Boston in April for Penny Arcade Expo East 2016! With lots of luck, it will be much warmer than PAX East 2015. Remember how last year we caught the tail end of Snowmageddon? Brrrrrrr. Let’s cross our fingers for sunshine and blue skies.



We’ll be back in our same location by the escalators located on the far left of the Exhibit Hall BUT our booth number has been changed to Booth 4025!
If you get lost, you can just look for our usual circular banner hanging over the booth. We’re also bringing back our Gift Shop and custom built arcade stations for our games!
PAX East attendees may recognize our Pit People dodecagon of single player arcade demo stations, our Castle Crashers Remastered arcade cabinet, and our BattleBlock Theater arcade cabinet.


New to PAX East this year:
-Our Back Off Barbarian mini game in a new custom built arcade cabinet. This mini game is found in Castle Crashers Remastered on Xbox One and Castle Crashers for Steam.
-Pit People co-op couches that will use our portable arcade sticks. This is the debut of our 2 player co-op demo–never before seen at any show we’ve done thus far!

If you find yourself enjoying Pit People and can’t wait for the game release, you’ll be able to sign up for our closed beta while you’re at the booth. And you can quell your cravings for PP by getting one of our new Pit People tees:

Just a few of the fighters in Pit People.

It’ll be available at the Gift Shop at our booth for $20. Limited sizes while supplies last.
