This Alpha demo of The Pit provides you with an introductory tutorial and a chance to fight your way down into the first 5 levels of the game!

The Pit is short for The Pit of the Bloodweaver. In this game, you play a brave Human soldier exploring a multi-level underground lab facility. The place was built and abandoned years ago by the Bloodweaver, an alien super-genius with delusions of godhood. He was the ultimate mad scientist, and The Pit was his favorite box of tinker toys.

As you break through locked doors, open storage containers, dodge traps and evade security systems, you'll also have to contend a variety of crazy foes. The Pit is full of the mutants, monsters and minions that the enemy left behind.

They're hungry, and you look like lunch.

Kerberos Productions has launched a crowd-sourcing campaign on Indiegogo.
