Sword of the Stars: The Pit Now on Steam

Sword Of The Stars: The Pit

Kerberos Productions invites the bold to descend into the deep. The game developer and independent publisher has released its latest game, Sword of the Stars: The Pit, on Steam.

Sword of the Stars: The Pit is a spin-off of the hit 2006 science fiction strategy game Sword of the Stars. Abandoning the strategy formula, the game is instead a turn based rougelike dungeon crawling role-playing game.

The game costs $9.99 but, as of this writing, it is being sold at a 10 percent discount, bringing the price down to $8.99. The offer will end March 15, at which point players must buy the game at regular price.

[adsense250itp]Taking place on the fictional Arbuda IV, a colony planet serving as a retirement home for military veterans, a devastating plague infects the citizens, turning inhabitants into plague-carrying abominations. There is no known cure to remedy this but, rumor has it, a cure lies in the heart of the depths of the planet.

Playing as a scout, engineer or marine–each with their own strengths and weaknesses–gamers will venture down into the planet in the hopes of discovering if this is true and finding a cure to save the planet.

Exploring 30 levels, players will descend downwards while increasing their skills. Every new game is unique thanks to a randomization system. Every time players start a new game, it will always be a new experience. What does not change is the fact gamers will have to deal with dozens of enemies, evade traps and even avoid starvation.

The game has more than 50 weapons and armor types that can be augmented along with the character to better stand a chance at surviving. There are also more than 100 items in the game. Many of these can be made through a unique crafting system. Combining specific objects together will allow players to make things like more nourishing food, powerful weapons and more potent medicinal treatments.

This will all prove to be invaluable as the most distinct feature in the game is the lack of save points. Should players die in a game, there is no second chance and a new game must be started. It is a requirement that is not going to sit well with gamers expecting to win easily but will undoubtedly make anyone who enjoys a good challenge happy.
