What's cool about it:

  • Three new Character classes, each from a different previously unplayable alien race.
  • Over 65 new items.
  • Over 35 new monsters.
  • Over 50 new messages which means lots of all new hidden recipes.
  • 30 new weapons, including new alien weapons.
  • 2 new biome levels - Snow and Desert.
  • 2 new play modes; Quick, which reduces the number of rooms per floor and Fast, which skips ever second floor!
  • Controller support (this was put in during MindGames, but bears repeating).
  • One secret unlockable character.


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!

“The Pit--with its random elements and permadeath--is justified in its boast of replayability…” – PC Gamer

“Has that same feeling of ‘okay, just one more run’ that both Binding of Isaac or FTL: Faster Than Light have…” – Destructoid
