In the News

Every Colonist has heard the tales of The Pit. Some say it doesn't exist. Some say it does. All agree only a fool would go looking for it.

Mount Pleasant-based Kerberos Productions, traditionally a third-party dev shop, have decided to get on the front foot by forging their own path with a new indie game, Sword of the Stars: The Pit, which they’ve developed themselves and are distributing online.

As the name suggests, this title is tied in to the Sword of the Stars lore, though this iteration is self-published, which means Kerberos has the rights to its IP. That’s a rare occurrence in business models these days.

Cool Beans! Definitely a beacon of hope for other indie devs out there too. GO KERBEROS! :thumbsup:

so nice of pcgamer to not actually do a review of it, and just use it as an excuse to get a dig in on Kerberos :P
oh well, not really surprised coming from pcgamer

First Look: Sword of the Stars: The Pit

There’s nothing quite like the heartache of having your weapons and armor damaged badly, finding a broken repair station and, in attempting to bring it online, ruining it completely.

did you guys send out versions to review sites/magazines? I was thinking there should be more reviews around. Or is this not done this way in the business?
