Pit People – by The Behemoth

 

The Pit is the place where our story’s heroes get a fresh start in life! It’s basically what you and I know more commonly as an arena. As you may remember from our announcement trailer, the story starts off right as the giant bear from space shattered the planet…

Through the chaos, Horatio, Pipistrella, Yosef, Sofia, and Gluten have found each other. They’ve formed a team to conquer each untimely obstacle.

Pit People was the name written on the original concept sketch that started it all. Every interaction took place in an arena. Over time, adventuring became a big part of the game. However, a key moment in the story now occurs in the Pit, and so the name remained! In the end, we’re in the beginning!!!!!!!!!!

 

Oh! Now that we have a name we can have a website!!!!! Look at it!!!!!!!

I shall say, Pit People sure is a nice name for a game like this. I don't know if I will be able to get the game on Xbox One upon its release, but I do look forward to the Steam version! :-D

I think its going to be a bit strange hearing people telling me how much they love "PP" but other than that, I cannot wait to finally go full tryhard on another game since BBT.

Much more straightforward of a name than Battleblock Theater.

As always, it'll take some time to get used to the change, but the alliteration is always welcome.

 

The name's simplicity reminds me of Castle Crashers'.

 

What's the game about? Crashing castles. Okay.

What's the game about? Pit People? Okay.

 

Whereas with Battleblock Theater, as much as I like the name, it didn't do much to explain what you really do or what the game was about.

 

Not that the name really matters, once people see "From the creators of Castle Crashers" then it will sell.

 

One step closer to a release date now!

Completely forgetting Alien Hominid wow.

 

Anyways Pit People is a catchy name, but it will take some time getting use to it. Looking forward to see what else you guys got in store for us.

Well by these standards we might as well start calling BattleBlock Theater Spikey Death-Filled Cat Game instead... :-D

I will agree thought, the alliteration is nice to see. It helps it be catchier, and all hip and on fleek wid da kool kidz.

I wasn't a huge fan of "Pit People" when I first heard it, but it's really grown on me since last night. It's super catchy and outlines the game well.

 

 

heh, pee pee.

Alright, so Pit People has grown on me significantly, and when you think about the game it fits really well.

But that logo... It was love at first sight. (Seriously sick job on the logo.)

My main question is, will the Pit People be sold as a hard copy?

 

I would highly doubt that, they might possibly do something along the lines of selling a card to download the game, but the only game they made a physical copy of was Alien Hominid, if I remember correctly.

To bad, I personally prefer to have hard copy of games cause of their box art and to also go on my wall of games.

Yeah Alien Hominid got a physical release for PS2, Gamecube, Gameboy Advance and (I think) Xbox.

 

Pretty sure the upcoming Castle Crashers: Definitive Edition is getting a physical release though? Could be wrong, I haven't done any research to verify.

Pit People is a name I kind of disliked at first, but I'm sure I'll grow to like it. The name is only one aspect of a game that looks pretty grand.

Alright, break up you two.

 

On the topic of the game itself, will Pit People have a free trial sometime near release, similar to Castle Crashers and BBT?

I always thought you were just temporarily calling it Game 4, but its not going to be actually called that, I guess I was right and wrong.
