Kerberos releases special holiday content for The Pit!

“Sword of the Stars: The Pit” on sale, has a special present for Steam users.

With the Steam Holiday sale in full swing, Kerberos Productions has released a special holiday present for players of The Pit; The Gronch. Yes, it’s the most wonderful time of the year, even on Arbuda IV, but that doesn’t mean The Pit is going to go easy on those who attempt to reach the bottom.

“The Zuul captured some very incautious carolers, psionically devoured their yuletide cheer,” says Pit designer Martin Cirulis “As a result even the inhabitants of the Pit have gotten into the spirit of the season. This has compelled the Zuul to leave wrapped presents under brightly decorated trees – the foolish slave-apes’ holiday rituals were easily mastered by the Bloodweaver’s favored children!”

But something has stolen all the gifts they’d left – if you can find them, maybe you can score some sweet loot, including new Christmas-related recipes and achievements. With The Pit Gold (75% off on Steam), players will receive a free update on December 23rd which adds The Gronch, a special achievement, and two new items. Defeat The Gronch and he’ll give you a present. Defeat the present and you’ll find some special items you’ll need to make yourself Gronch Heart Elixir!
The Pit soundtrack, Pilgrim DLC, and Juggernaut DLC are also on sale for 50% off. The sale, and The Gronch event, ends on January 2nd.

Everything in the Pit still wants you dead. Happy Holidays!

Sword of the Stars: The Pit is a fast, light-hearted action RPG, made in the tradition of Rogue and other old school dungeon-diving games.

Two DLC additions, Pilgrim and Juggernaut, are also available, each adding a new playable character and new content.
