Sword of the Stars: The Pit – Rocket launchers, swords and rats

Sword of the Stars: The Pit from Kerberos Productions. Sci-fi roguelike. Sword of the Stars: The Pit from Kerberos Productions is on IndieGoGo right now.

You may be familiar with Sword of the Stars as one of the best-known 4X strategy games of the past several years. However, if you have played the game (or any 4X game) you may be wondering: who kills all of the rats on those ships. Well, Sword of the Stars: The Pit may not set out to answer exactly that question, but it does offer a Roguelike set in the Sword of the Stars world. Sword of the Stars: The Pit promises 30 levels, dozens of monsters, rocket launchers, swords (and – in fact – mentions that it will feature some 30 weapons and 60 items), and – yes – rats. The Pit is a sharp looking game, too, with nice pixel art graphics and the promise of taking a Roguelike and offering the “leveling, ammo, crafting and skills of a true dungeon dive.” The Pit also has three characters to choose from and a copy of the game is available from $10 (beta access is $40 and there are a bunch more tiers other than that). Sword of the Stars: The Pit is currently in alpha and the IndieGoGo campaign is meant to push the game towards its beta phase. And it wouldn’t be a Roguelike if there weren’t a bunch of ways for your character to meet an awful end in addition to monsters ” including poisoning, disease, traps, radiation, starvation”.
