Product Description

The Story: A deadly plague ravages your world.

Your last hope: a legendary alien facility dug deep into the Feldspar Mountains...a massive Pit, built by the ancient Suul'ka. If 'The Pit' really exists, there might be something left. Something that will give your doctors a fighting chance at the cure. All you know for sure is that every expedition into those mountains has failed to return... And Nothing Sows Death Like the Suul'ka.

About the Game: Since its first demo was released in the Fall of 2012, The Pit has become an indie hit with its blend of Roguelike action and sci-fi depth! Players were challenged to survive 30 floors of The Pit using one of three characters – the Marine, the Engineer, and the Scout – then in The Pit: MindGames players were given two new characters – the Psion and the alien Tarka Ranger – and ten more floors to survive through, as well as a wealth of new items, recipes, weapons, and nasty creatures to fight!

To celebrate the success of the series, we’re releasing this Gold edition, which not only gives you the game, the expansion, and all the free content we added along the way, but we’re adding three new playable characters – The Hiver Warrior, the Liir Seeker, and the Morrigi Striker!

Now you can test yourself against The Pit using all the major races from the Sword of the Stars universe!

  • “The Pit--with its random elements and permadeath--is justified in its boast of replayability…” – PC Gamer
  • “Has that same feeling of ‘okay, just one more run’ that both Binding of Isaac or FTL: Faster Than Light have…” – Destructoid
  • “Sword of the Stars: The Pit, ladies and gentlemen... not to shabby!” – Total Biscuit

4.0 out of 5 stars Fun game that fits into your schedule April 9, 2014
Verified Purchase
It loads quickly, so it's easy to pick up. It saves quickly, so it's easy to put down. It's got enough depth to keep you coming back. Other, longer reviews would do it more justice. 4/5 stars from me.

I just bought this Amazon item for the Steam code. I already had the base version -- "The Pit" without "Mind Games" and the "Gold Edition DLC". This Steam code allowed me to upgrade to the "Gold Edition" (ie all the DLC) and even keep my saved game.

This Amazon item also let me download a standalone executable, but I only ran it once to verify that it works. I didn't check how to get saved games into the standalone version, but it's likely possible.

5.0 out of 5 stars Sci Fi Roguelike with some generational features. January 13, 2014
I loved this game. I picked it up during Steams Winter 2013 Sale.

So far I've played approx 12 hours and have not even scratched the surface.

There is an very intresting crafting system set up that causes more playing to get recipes/mats. Then again the materials you get you may not need, so there is no real way to ensure you get what you need to say make some extra ammo of the calibur that you need *one example*

Every 5 or so levels you can basicly store exp and some material but unless you start a new toon on that level you can not make a withdrawl. So, you can play a toon up to floor 5 store a lot of materials you don't need store some exp, and then once you do end up dying you can start another char on that level and withdraw some items or exp.

There are some aspects that are a bit annoying of course, like the PSI/Magic skills, they do not lend themselves to a gamepad easy. So you can be using a gamepad, Keyboard, and mouse as well at times. So that is a bit on the clunky side.

Graphics are meh, but really, that should be the last reason you buy this game. Honestly though the more game play you get into it the better overall the game becomes, the more of the backstory you get, the more crafting information. At 5 or 10$ it is worth picking up, if nothing else wait for a sale, or a humble bundle.

3.0 out of 5 stars sword of the stars the pit March 2, 2014
Verified Purchase
Pretty addictive and enjoyable for a while, but HIGHLY randomized. Running through multiple levels without finding anything useful while gear degrades and items run out gets pretty discouraging after a while. Still, for the price i felt it was worth while.
