Since its first demo was released in the Fall of 2012, The Pit has become an indie hit with its blend of Roguelike action and sci-fi depth! Players were challenged to survive 30 floors of The Pit using one of three characters – the Marine, the Engineer, and the Scout – then in The Pit: MindGames players were given two new characters – the Psion and the alien Tarka Ranger – and ten more floors to survive through, as well as a wealth of new items, recipes, weapons, and nasty creatures to fight!

To celebrate the success of the series, we’re releasing this Gold edition, which not only gives you the game, the expansion, and all the free content we added along the way, but we’re adding three new playable characters – The Hiver Warrior, the Liir Seeker, and the Morrigi Striker! Now you can test yourself against The Pit using all the major races from the Sword of the Stars universe!

Great Rogue-like with tons of loot

Posted on 2014-04-30 18:34:34 bysuckerforsadness's avatarsuckerforsadness:

I wanted to give a solid review for this game on this dlc page, just in case some who like survival rogue-likes click this first instead of the base game. As a DLC, this pack is fine and dandy, giving more of the same.
The game is tough but not so hard you won't ever get anywhere. There are enough differing loot types that I didn't mind the repetition, and the stat-building hasread more enough bulk to it to keep it fun. Leveling up is solid, also, doesn't take too long, but doesn't give you too much power when you get there.
Overall, this is a great and purdy indie title that I've put a helluva lot of hours into, and haven't slowed down on.

It's Roguelike Light, but still fun.

This is DLC, it mostly just adds content to an already pretty fun game. The Seeker in particular is a lot of fun. I do however, have a caution: If you're getting the Gold Edition Upgrade DLC, you NEED Mindgames installed first, otherwise it won't let you install. If you like SOTS, I highly suggest Mindgames, as it adds psychic skills (including healing) which greatly expands your in-game options.

A Good Concept, A boring game

Posted on 2014-04-25 19:12:42 byNiteris's avatarNiteris:

In short, it's fun while you have all your starting equipment because the game is mostly filler enemies that annoying chip at your health, ammo and items while breaking your equipment so by the time you get into the game you have absolutely nothing but your worthless in-game fists.
Balancing the enemies with the map would help the game, because you basically get nothing from theread more start, 8 out of 10 playthroughs you'll probably get nothing remotely helpful to your current situation.
The game's full of filler and is repetitive. Would not buy again.
