  1. Tommy's School Yard Tale

    I will now share a school yard tale. Please read it in the voice of either the Narrator of Battle Block Theater or the Narrator in Pit People. There was once a young boy named Tommy, who was so cowardly he'd always run to his mommy. One day his friend Billy grew tired of his ways and threw a fit. He said "Tommy! 1V1 ME IN THE PIT! 3 O'CLOCK!" The boys and grills surrounded the two with a "OOoooooo" This was not your usual 3 pm AFTER SCHOOL PLAYGROUND FIGHT. So the time came where Tommy had to prove himself and defame his once friend, now turned enemy Billy. He wrapped up his fist in nice linen cloth hand wraps, got out his mother's Ironing board, now his Iron Shield and his grand pappies giant dentures. I MEAN THESE THINGS WERE HUGE, but Tommy was the hero of his team so he could hold it pretty well. Tommy knew better not to fight alone so he brought his pet Meowy the Vampiress and her child riding on her back to fight with him. His trusty Pixie SOUL TASTER, His school teacher Golden Toes, and a Hair Troll named Quazar. Billy came twice as PREPARED! Oh Tommy was really in for it. Billy called up his older Half Brother in World 2 and was like "Big brother I need some big help!" Staggering into the Arena stood a 8 foot tall CYCLOPS! Golden Club, and Baseball in hand. He brought his girlfriend Delicious the Human along, she was packing HEAT! The Heat of a Flamethrower! Billy also asked his dad to borrow his Electrobot.... at this point Billy is just a jerk being unfair... but I digress. Finally he had the might of a fellow school child who was prone to fire sharpen sticks with her bow. Glossy was her name. The FIGHT was on Tommy was feared as the fight started, almost instantly a cloud of purple blinded his sight. Billy's squad moved close. With a swift throw of his Baseball the Cyclops stunned Golden Toes. Rendering her useless for a turn. Delicious set Quazar ablaze! He screamed in agony as his hair burned and fizzled off his body, filling the air with the upmost foul odor. No one was going to be spared under Billy's MIGHT! Just in a moment the Electrobot took action, bursting SOUL TASTER With a single critical shock. The Pixie let out a blood shrilling "OWWWWWAAHHAHAAA" as it popped like balloon. A balloon filled with red blood and flinging intestines. Standing in here place, Meowy stared with pleading eyes at Glossy. Glossy Smirked with wild, devilish, smug lips that cut left and right up to her ears. She readied her bow and fired a pike. It spinned as it traveled through the air and impaled that poor baby's face. Knocking it off her mother's back. The young Vampiress curled up her extremities curled up like a spider inward to her body and she let out a blood curdling shriek of death. It was finally Billy's turn to strike. He lifted his PIT SWORD 1 that his daddy had purchased for him from a shady man named Mr. Whispers. BRINGING IT DOWN LIKE HELL'S FURY HE STRUCK AT HIS FORMER FRIEND! Tommy reacted! Trying to counter attack but FAILED! BECAUSE HE WAS BLIND The turn has moved, and the tables turned. Golden Toes was useless as she was stunned. Tommy stayed vigilant right in his place, to strike again at his former friend. Soul Taster was useless, Soul Taster was dead. Meowy Hopped to it. FLYING TO STRIKE THE MURDERER OF HER CHILD! She dived her knifey hooks inside of Glossy, causing her to ooze and spurt out blood. Glossy heart was in her throat, her eyes filled with the fear and understanding of a mother's rage. Her chin spasmed and shivered. Teeth clattering as Meowy removed her blades from the girl's chest. Quazar was furious! His flesh was seared off his body and causing a putrid gagging smell. Worse than the fart of a Mushroom, but he remained firm. Flipping Delicious behind him and quickly spinning around to face her, his eyes spoke only rage and blood lust. Quazar Healed and the turn, turned. The brute Cyclops let out a barbaric yelp for his woman. "DELECIOUSSSSSSSSS" HE Screamed as he rushed the unaware Quazar, knocking him up and a few tiles away.... ironically in the direction of his woman. Quazar looked back behind him with a confident smug grin. He gave the Cyclops a thumbs up, then he flipped him off. Turning back to Delicious he grinned. The lust for her blood still there in his eyes. She gave him a blank stoic expression as she let out the fury of her flamer once more. He died right on the spot. A horrible death by flame. Bleeding and dying, Glossy managed to get the strength to fire her bow once more into the heart of Meowy! A critical strike! Meowy burst into several bats and flew away out of the Pit. The Electrobot that everyone seemed to forget teleported over to Golden Toes. Stunning her... again.... The turn, turned once more. Glossy died on the spot, falling onto her back with a thud. Tommy stepped back 4 tiles, making his way to the gate he entered from. His team being wiped effortlessly by Billy. Leaving Golden Toes to herself. As Tommy ran for the door the people of the pit booed and hollered. Throwing their food and other items at the cowering child. THE GATE SLAMMED DOWN! And Timmy was forced to end his turn. Billy and his group moved closer, the turn changes and Timmy moves back. This goes on for a few moments until Timmy was cornered. The enemy neglected to pay attention to Golden Toes. Timmy curled into a ball, ready to accept his fate as Billy and his group began to beat him down. Stomping on him, shocking him, burning him, and throwing baseballs at his face. Out of the air though, a whistle was heard! BOOM!! MMMMMMMYESSSSSS DOUBLE KILL! A mortar dropped on the machine and Delicious! "NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!" Screamed out the Cyclops brute as his love was just murdered by the violent explosion of a falling sky bomb. The Electrobot burst, sending shrapnel all around! Boom! The Cyclops and his younger brother spinned around. Excitement and confusion flustered in the cheeks of our school teacher. She clapped and cheered in glory! Turns passed and the two couldn't keep up! Trying to avenge the death of Delicious the brothers chased after Golden Toes. Leaving a half dead Tommy to gargle on his own blood in the corner. They couldn't match though, as they moved, she did too. Kiting them with raining death. Soon, after hailing storms of mortar fire. The brute fell in front of his brothers eyes. The Teacher Golden Toes, whom he once called Ma'am every morning..... turned on him with a lingering hunger to slaughter him and his ilk. Billy couldn't take it, this wasn't fair! Tommy was supposed to be the coward! A DEAD COWARD! On his knees Billy surrendered. The Pit Master yelled out from his thrown above "NO SURRENDER!" and Tommy drove his grand pappies dentures through the young boy with a "shlk!". Tommy couldn't believed it he had won! As Tommy looked up to the sky his smile quickly faded as he realized a falling star. BOOOOOOOOOOOM! MMMMMMMMDOUBLE KILL! the distant chant of a giant bear can be heard! For Golden Toes was the true victor. She had fired preemptively! Accidentally blowing up Tommy after he had killed his former friend. She had murdered her pupils in cold blood and with a smile. "I'M FREE!" She shouted as the crowed showered her in accolades and glory. She exited the Pit and still teaches till this day. This was the story of the Tommy, the school yard coward. The.... End.
  2. Favourite Quest so far?

    My favorite is the historically "accurate" quest "R3dCo4ts are coming". Share yours below. No spoilers please.
  3. Image Request: Copcake avatar

    Hi, Has anyone got an image of the Copcakes from a certain side quest? Wanting to use it as my avatar. Thanks.
  4. I don't know why but it will only allow me to post to Castle Crashers Remastered. I'm hoping a moderator can get this to the proper posting area. I currently am playing early access to Pit People through steam. The new patch has rolled out and I had some concerns with some balancing things that I've detected. 1. Gorgon Hair-snake drop rates were nerfed too much. I used to pair mine with a weapon that did some slight self dmg and a cupcake to sustain her health knowing she'd take hits. Now I can take on a full arrow barrage and if I'm lucky if she drops one snake. I imagine this was done to offset her dmg increase which was nominal but have to say I prefer the previous model. 2. Kobold's dodge rates were nerfed to hell. They kind of relied on that as they have always had low health, barely any defense and needed to get to their targets in the back (archers) which usually means running past the front line and taking some dmg. The offset to that was their dmg output was always minimal except on archers. 3. Unicorns accuracy seems to have been made worse, while it was never that great before and you always had to put up with a mix of 'horn-mine' shots. Because of their drop in effectiveness it makes them less preferable to a mortar user now. 4. Troll Mom's seem to have lost any regen that they used to have and while it was never substantial before at least it was something as she relies on her minions to do most interference and dmg. 5. Zombies light helmets provide no defense now where they used to have some minor protection with no dmg reduction. Now that we can see they only have a 29% chance return rate wouldn't it make sense for them to have some durability at least? 6. Octoclops while the confusion dynamic seems an interesting option I haven't seen a way of controlling said unit once confused. When mouse-wheeling through units are they supposed to come up as movable? 7. Those frozen mortar troops typical in the arena AI matches now have a ridiculous proc rate of freezing when compared to other freezing weapons (swords and such). The weapon itself does full dmg too right? It would be one thing if they were firing freezing rounds with minimal dmg as that's a pretty long range CC. I'll remind you of the Bowling Stun mortar which had less dmg output. 8. Reduction in Hair Trolls dmg was understandable as their passive regen is substantial when compounded with their movement. Overall I was pleased to see more vanity items added in and tweaking done with the arenas and what not for an added challenge. I love the way you've incorporated elemental weapon dmg into creature weaknesses as I think that factor will turn the tide in some cases. One question for the future is if there are going to be ways to intentionally detonate charge barrels on the field or will it always just rely on aoe dmg around it? Another question was the House Menu screen seemingly mentioned in the patch notes and such. Is that only available in the console version or something? I've never seen a screen for that of Horatio's Farm.
  5. Pit People: Pit Wall Bug

    Hello! So a friend and I are playing the Early Access Pit People on Steam and loving it thus far! Recently, we encountered two bugs. The first one we snagged a picture of. The enemies were ignoring that blockade in front of us, easily walking over it and into our back lines. The mushroom wasn't the only one doing it! A troll did it first. Our characters could not proceed over it in any way. The other was when my friend would hover over an enemy while moving his Gorgon, he said the babies would show up on the heads of the closest enemies. Sadly I don't think we caught a picture of it. Edit: Actually he did. And a troll baby is sitting on top of an archer in the bottom right corner. Anyways, loving the game, and keep up the good work!
  6. Hello behemoth! Sorry for posting this in the wrong forum, for some reason this is the only one I'm allowed to post in. I'm playing co-op with a friend and twice now a character he has captured for me and then traded to me upon returning home has disappeared and never been added to my fighters even though the mail thing shows me they've been sent. Both characters were unique characters he already had so we were thinking maybe he wasn't allowed to catch an additional one and that's why they disappeared? It was the Sultan of Shivers and Major McDynamo. Hunted for these characters for a while so it was really disappointing to catch them and still not get them.
  7. We’re just a couple weeks away from the launch of Pit People on Early Access! This seems like the perfect time to spotlight another fighter type in Pit People. Let’s talk Kobolds! Don’t let their short stature deceive you; Kobolds may be small, but they run in packs and they’re sharp — or at least their weapons are! See the full dev blog post -- complete with a full list of abilities and animated GIFs! *Note: This game is still in development and attributes of each fighter are subject to change. Thanks for being with us as we make our game baby! Be sure to add this game to your Steam Wishlist and follow Pit People on Facebook!
  8. By now you’ve probably heard the great news that Pit People is launching January 13, 2017 on Early Access. (Wishlist it if you haven’t done so already!) For those who played the Closed Beta on Steam, we’ve got an extra slice of good news for you: You’ve got a 99.99% chance of bringing your Steam save data over to the Early Access version of Pit People! (Those odds are as good as the 99.99% on a bottle of Purell! The sanitizing strength of Purell is nearly unparalleled, order today on Amazon, and don’t forget to set it to recurring every 4 months order!!! #passthePURELL) In October, we asked all Beta Testers on Steam to select Pit People in the Steam Library and choose “Delete Local Content” to avoid issues when the game comes out. This removed the build from players’ PCs, but that delicious, glorious, and hard-earned save data should be waiting for you in the Steam Cloud. (The Steam Cloud is powered by Santa Claus.) If a Steam Beta Tester removed data from the Cloud, however, then it might be lost like tears in the rain (Blade Runner reference, order Blade Runner today on Amazon). Note: Closed Beta Save Data will be transferable to the Early Access version of Pit People on Steam only. In approximately 2.84 weeks when Early Access launches on Steam, Closed Beta Testers who purchase Pit People will have their chance to pick up where they left off — or, simply choose another save slot if you wish to start fresh. (Amazon Fresh.) Until then, snap into a Snickers!
  9. Woohoo! It's Friday! We've brought this Arena playlist back in Arena Features and we've unlocked several prisoners in honor of the Pit People Early Access Announcement. If you don't have these already, you can unlock these special prisoners on XBLA AND Steam by heading to an online area in BattleBlock Theater: The 3rd Special Unlock is specific to each game platform. (XBLA Only) (Steam Only) All of these unlocks were based on characters from all of our games, so it seems appropriate for this occasion! Here are the original descriptions of each Arena playlist: random levels by SHANKKMAKER (XBLA) SuperHiperMegaL by Albertrivers (Steam) Happy playing!
  10. After two very helpful closed betas in September and October, we continued development on Pit People with tons of feedback from the gaming community. It was the first time we had a closed beta for two platforms in the same year! Now, we’re going for our next milestone, which is having our first game ever in Xbox One Game Preview AND Steam Early Access starting January 13, 2017. Pit People will be the first time we do early access and it’ll be the first time we release a digital title on two separate platforms in the same year! After implementing our changes post-beta, holding onto the game in its current state just feels weird. The core gameplay is complete and we’ll be adding content until the full version is released. We feel that Pit People is at a point where we’ll confidently say there’s more than enough fun, content, variety, value and play-time to keep someone happy. We won’t sell something unless it meets these standards, so it definitely seems like it is time! This will also be a good opportunity to monitor the balance in the game and continue getting feedback from the gaming community as we finish up! Feel free to come along with us on this trip (when you dip I dip we dip). Read up on what will be in the Early Access experience and the discount you can get: Pit People Early Access (Full Post)
  11. It's been a while since we've shared a speed drawing video! This footage was taken from Dan's Twitch Stream in October and then sped up 9x. We've also added in music by Patric Catani and both those songs are in Pit People Enjoy!

  13. Pit People Discussion

    Same thing as the CCR discussion, just say anything about the upcoming (or for you future peeps current) new game from The Behemoth, Pit People. Just dont say anything bad or nasty or inapro-pro. Get discussing
  14. Spoiler's btw... So at the end of Battleblock Theater, after the buckle your pants song, Hatty ends up in the bottom of the ocean, and the glowey red hat lands on his head and turns glowey green, for some reason, and then shoots a shoop da whoop lazor up into the sky, and a giant bear in space is hit by the blaarg, thus starting the story of pit people, the game that comes out in TBA... Now that leaves a junk load of questions: Why did the hat go all glowey green? Why is there a giant bear in space? Why was the hat glowey red in the first place? Why hasn't my canker sore gone away yet? This will ALL be answer in Pit People! But thats just a theory, A GAME THEORY, the end...
  15. MY IDEA FOR A CHEST SYSTEM In pit people I think it would be a cool idea to add a sort of chest system, This is my version of a chest system. Basically, after a round or a level, you will get the regular drops and a possible chance of a chest, the possibility of getting these would be uncommon to rare in the loot system based on their rank. The chests will have multiple ranks: Peasant, Rare, Legend, and Boss chests. The Peasant, Rare, and Legend chests will be obtained by winning a game along with the other loot, but Boss chests are only obtained by beating highly difficult levels. The chests will be able to be unlocked by buying keys with in-game gold or currency. The keys will be somewhat cheap for the Peasant chest keys a medium amount of gold for the rare chest keys, and a medium amount of gold for the legend chest keys, these will be bought from some sort of mid-game merchant. The boss chests will be free to open. These chests will drop 1-2 cosmetics for characters that you have on your team, the higher the rank of the crate, the higher the tier of the cosmetic. Since behemoth always has their jokes they could add a highly rare chance of getting something called a unusual " Waste of money ". "The waste of money"s would be versions of the cosmetics that are glowing. I think this would be a great addition to the game, as it would add a fun way to get cool things in the game and something for people who have beat the game to collect. But then again, this is a forum page and behemoth has probably added something along the lines of this already. Thanks to anyone who have read this and I wish everyone a good and to summer!
  16. Pit People Trailer Released

    Earlier today, the Behemoth released their first trailer for Pit People. Thoughts? Edit: Something's wrong with the URL, I don't know what's wrong :/
