      Update 5: Infinite Wisdom is here!   10/05/2017

        Hey everyone, We’re back with another update that really mixes some stuff up. An entirely new challenging mode, a rebalance of the entire game to go with the rework of the new leveling progression numbers, ability to do the co-op intro online, faster PVP rounds, language translations and more! With the rebalance you’ll find that your fighters are dealing even more damage as they gain experience. All balance changes are retro-active meaning you do not have to worry about starting over or starting new characters in order to experience that – they’re all dynamically applied to what you already have! Feel free to check out what we’ve changed in the list below, and as always – please leave us feedback about anything you find noteworthy. As always, the main Story (although not included in this update) is being developed alongside all these improvements we have been releasing. Check out our blog for the full changelist: http://blog.thebehemoth.com/2017/09/28/update-5-infinite-wisdom-is-here/

      Pit People's Final Touches   11/21/2017

      It has been nearly a year since we launched Pit People on early access. This journey has been an incredible experience! We’ve built a better game thanks to all your feedback. So here’s a spicy little situation: We’ve decided that our next big drop will be the FULL version of the game! Yes, it shall be complete! You’ll be able to play through the story and find out what happens for everyone.  
        As we write this, we’re working on the last of the cinematics for the story campaign! This is the final push towards completing the game, alongside additional story quests and a new world map with bonus missions.
        Since there’s so much involved with these last steps (VO, animation, level creation, music licensing, QA testing, etc), we’re not exactly sure when everything will line up for a full release date, but we’re shooting to release within the first few months of 2018.
        Thank you again to all of the people who’ve been playing Pit People during early access and to everyone who has been sending us feedback. It has truly been invaluable and we can’t wait to share the conclusion of Pit People with you all!

Lovely people of Behemoth Forums, I need some serious advice!

 

Now I know this place is filled with a bunch of talented people, some younger than me, most older and that's exactly why I came to you for help! If you can, could you please tell me which schools are good for learning the following:

 

1. Animation, Both 2D and 3D

2. Game Design

3. Business

4. Writing

5. Programming

 

I also put this list in the order I wish to know these things in first, but any school that can teach these would be nice! This could also help me narrow down my searches for a good college, as I'm gonna have to start thinking about this come next school year, but I just wanted to get an early start.

 

I also live in New York, if that matters...Anyway, suggestions on school will be much appreciated!

I'm not sure what country you're in exactly, but Full Sail University is down in Florida in the US, and it's great for animation, game design, etc. It's not an accredited school though, so you can't earn degrees there.

 

Also, something to consider: Tommy Refenes from Team Meat said at one point that college was a waste of time for him; he taught himself how to program using textbooks and tutorials on the Internet, and he felt that college was just an obstruction that prevented him from making games. I'm not saying "you shouldn't go to college", but that's just something he said (and look where he is now). He's a freaking genius anyways, and he had been programming for years by that point, so it might not apply to everyone. Either way, college is definitely a smart idea if you want to learn about business, writing, and maybe animation, but if you're hoping to make games, you wanna get started on that ASAP. Just something to think about.

Ohai Ryuken we missed you.

I'm not too certain what schools are good for 2-5, but I'm assuming animation goes under "Arts" so I'll recommend my college.

 

Virginia Commonwealth University. It's reknown for its medical school as well as its School of Arts.

 

If you can find this college you can definitely find me.

Sounds like my interests are pretty rare to find around here. Which sucks since I only enjoy learning if it's something I actually want to learn...

 

I heard of that school to, it's something called a "For Profit" school. I don't know how those work, but I heard those schools require more money. Thanks and if you have any book recommendations, I'd be glad to hear them aswell!

Lol You did? Hey Roy, long time no see.

 

Virginia Commonwealth University, eh? That would be the perfect place to find out your gender. Not that I'm EVER gonna go there or anything...

 

Thanks also, thinking of colleges is kinda scary, so far I only what I want to do, but if I end up in the wrong school, what I want to do wouldn't be pretty relevant. Plus there's the matter of that whole "accredited" thing, what degree you want, costs and yadda-yadda...

 

I also do not want to stray far from home because I never really learned how to travel well on my own. I know extremely little.

Hmmm, I live 7 hours away from you in the Great White North. Over here there's a very well-known college for animation, art and design. Several students from this college ended up working at Pixar and other cool places. 

 

It's called Sheridan College. I have a friend who studies animation and she loves it. It's very stressful to get in since you have to send a portfolio and other info.

 

Here's the website: www.sheridancollege.ca/

 

Good luck :)
