Way Down In The Hole: Sword Of The Stars - The Pit

Roguelikes! Everybody worth their salt is making a roguelike this week but the cheeky chaps at Kerberos jumped the gun somewhat and started work on their Sword of the Stars spin-off ages ago. The Pit is out now and can be purchased from GamersGate for £7.99 or through Steam for £6.29. There is also a demo, which I've dabbled with. It's from the Dredmor School of Accessible Roguery, with chunky cartoonish graphics and what I think is a sense of humour. My roguelibrary has a sci-fi gap in it so I'm willing to give the lasers and spacestations a fair shake, but I'll most likely end up craving something more complex.

The demo is here. It's fairly substantial and, like the best of 'em, will probably leave you with a good idea as to whether you want to shell out for the full game or not.
