What's cool about it:

  • Two New playable characters; the Human Psion and Tarka Ranger – the first playable alien character!
  • 2 New Play Modes; “Infinite Mode” as well as “Seriously? Mode”, for those of you that find “Insane Mode” isn’t insane enough!
  • Ten new floors of ancient, evil science, including wide, multi-level biospheres, add to the challenge!
  • Expanded meta-game aspects, including the ability to “bank” XP and spare items from one session and start the next run of the game on a deeper level, using your “banked” equipment.


Have you found the cure to the plague yet? Even if you have, there’s more to The Pit than you at first thought, with lots of new areas to explore, items to find and new dangers! The Pit: MindGames gives you even more old-school dungeon-diving in the Sword of the Stars sci-fi universe, letting your test your skill against The Pit using the mysterious and gifted Solforce Psion officer or the Tarkan Ranger – the first playable alien character!

The Pit will only give up its secrets if you survive and to survive you need to explore the powerful and deadly potential of your mind! Mens agitat monstra!

A well-priced expansion

Posted on 2013-07-03 03:01:54 byLambda462's avatarLambda462:

It seems like most people seem to forget that most games used to have expansion packs sold around 15 dollars which carried a handful new levels, gamemodes and all that stuff. This is the same but cheaper: You pay 5 dollars for TWO new playable characters (those who have played this game will know 2 characters is quite a lot of variety), two new modes, which is nice, TEN new floorsread more (I barely get past floor 5 and I've already played for hours!) and an expanded meta-game!
I can't really see WHY you could complain about buying it for 5 dollars. Look at the Binding of Isaac - Wrath of the Lamb... Wasn't that a really fair expansion as well? Seriously, GOG'ers, stop giving troll reviews to expansion packs just for them being downloadable and costing money.

5 bucks too much support an indie dev?

Did you love Sword of the Stars: The Pitt?
Do you want more content?
Do you find that entertainment worth the price of movie ticket?
If so, then this is definitely a good purchase.
Time to kick arse and chew food pellets and it seems I'm all out of pellets, so I guess it's time to stab some rats again.

Fun new classes for a nice game

I only play two roguelikes, this and dredmore.
Both are good in their own right, if you like the base game you cant go wrong with the expansion.
On a side note: I am getting sick of the general attitude of people complaining about prices.
It is 5 (five) dollars for a DLC that is absolutely worth the price.
If you cannot or will not afford that, it is your decision but givingread more it lower ratings because you dont care about people getting paid for their work is just plain wrong and ignorant.
