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.

Northernlion gave you guys a somewhat nice review, said the graphics weren't really his tastes but overall he liked the game. Graphics being a subjective thing anyway I would say the review was overall positive.

I caught Lethalfrag streaming The Pit on Twitch this evening. He was averaging 2500-3000 viewers; judging by the chat I'd say his stream has sold a few copies of the game.

Not news per se but a Kind Gentleman played Sword of the Stars: The Pit two days in a row now for about 6 hours each night, to an audience of about 5k+ People. http://www.twitch.tv/lethalfrag

Just figured I would drop his twitch account here. He did right by our community. Figured we could do the same.

Wow! 9.5 million views?!

Not today obviously. But Lethalfrag has a pretty big viewer base. Surely a small portion or medium sized portion of them will pick up the game if they like it. He is pretty much just giving The Pit free publicity.

Infact. Quite a few people are playing it on Twich. And people are watching it and seemingly enjoying it.

So. Good for them.

I will admit it is great publicity for you, hopefully The Pit was profitable and will continue to give you profit for some time.

Though. Really.. The Pit is listed as "Casual" On Steam apparently. What's that about.

I wondered about that too. Does Steam pick the genre listings?

Given market successes (FTL, Dungeons of Dredmor, The Pit, the large mass of Rogue-y things being Greenlit), think they will add Roguelike category?

I love the guy further on who is totally oblivious to the review and what the other posters are saying. Just in his own lil world. :P
