Roguelike FPS Pit Of Doom delves into early access

I still reckon that Sword Of The Stars: The Pit is one of the more underrated roguelikes. Wonky at launch, but through many patches and expansions it grew into something pleasantly System Shock-ish. Pit Of Doom is effectively a first-person remake, launched into early access today and latest in Kerberos' series of spinoffs from their Sword Of The Stars strategy setting. It's a real-time dungeon…

Spin-Off Of The Stars: Kerberos And The Pit

Kerberos haven't been spending all their time licking the wounds gained from Sword of the Stars II's messy release - they've also been developing a spin-off roguelike set in the same science-fictional universe. Sword of the Stars: The Pit might be set aboard some manner of space station, but features permadeath, door-hacking, rat-stabbing, starvation-avoiding and all that good masochistic dungeon-crawler stuff. There's a demo out…
