Sword of the Stars: The Pit!

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

October 26, 2012 - Kerberos Productions has created a playable preview demo for its latest game, Sword of the Stars: The Pit!

Sword of the Stars: The Pit is a fun, fast, light-hearted action RPG, made in the tradition of Rogue and other old school dungeon-diving games. Set in the popular Sword of the Stars universe, it delivers a rich backdrop and modern gameplay. Although the art style of the game is light, the role-playing mechanics under the hood will offer a good crunch for players who appreciate depth, as well as gruesome death-by-adorable-monsters.

The playable demo includes a brief Tutorial on game controls and basic tasks, followed by five playable levels of The Pit. The Pit is currently in Alpha stage; Kerberos has launched a crowd funding campaign on Indiegogo to help bring the game to completion.

A Beta version of the game is scheduled for release via Steam at the end of November, after the crowd funding campaign is complete. The finished game is slated for release in early 2013.
