“The Pit” is a third person Hack n Slash game with an original new generation approach to gaming. The game is set in a post-apocalyptic era and is heavily focused towards arena fighting which takes place in a classic death trapped roman gladiator setting.
The player incarnates a fighter who risks their life in gladiatorial games, battling against merciless blood-thirsty adversaries, using skills trees and combat tactics the gamer must defend their honour and fight to the death. Aided by the vast collection of post apocalyptic weapons (modified butcher knives, sledgehammers or chainsaws), long range weapons (crossbows, nail guns) or fire guns (semiautomatic pistols, shotguns).
Several years after the last world conflict, which almost erased all the traces of humanity, civilization has collapsed, and a cruel and brutal society in which only the fittest survive has emerged. In this inhuman world, in which each region of the earth is ruled by a different clan, ancient traditions and rituals have risen. Now, a clan’s glory is measured by only one thing: his giant combat domes and the strength of his warriors.
In the fashion of the Roman Empire, there are combat arenas all around the world, called Pits. In there, slaves, gold-thirsty soldiers of fortune, ruthless mercenaries and professional fighters searching for the glory in battle fight until they win or die.

The next generation visuals propel the gamer into character and set the scene for never seen before gladiator combat within a world where there are no rules – survival is for the fittest and the characters own stamina and fatigue is yet another element hindering their survival.
“The Pit” has high replay ability with the inclusion of multi characters, skills, weapons, and tactics and of course game modes. The Multiplayer mode within the game allows up to 2-4 gamers to compete against each other both on and offline.
