Hooray! We no longer have to refer to Behemoth’s next game as, mysteriously, “Game 4.” The studio has officially named the title Pit People.
Why did they do that? What was the point? Well, word of the nomenclature came to us by way of email recently. In that note, they include a tiny bit of backstory regarding their naming decision.
The Pit is the place where our story’s heroes get a fresh start in life! It’s basically what you and I know more commonly as an arena. As you may remember from our announcement trailer, the story starts off right as the giant bear from space shattered the planet…
Through the chaos, Horatio, Pipistrella, Yosef, Sofia, and Gluten have found each other. They’ve formed a team to conquer each untimely obstacle.
Was it always going to be Pit People? Maybe, maybe not. The name was the one that adorned an original sketch for the game, though.
Pit People was the name written on the original concept sketch that started it all. Every interaction took place in an arena. Over time, adventuring became a big part of the game. However, a key moment in the story now occurs in the Pit, and so the name remained! In the end, we’re in the beginning!!!!!!!!!!
Pit People will launch for the Xbox One and PC platforms on Steam. It does not have a release date yet.
