    There hasn't been a game in 2018 that's made me smile as much as Pit People. It's a weird world, where things get strange and quirky fast, but it's one that's absolutely worth exploring.

    Pit People offers a ton of game to chew on, and while it might not be the deepest tactical RPG, it manages to translate The Behemoth’s distinctive style while providing an entertaining, often engaging strategic experience. It might not reach the insane heights of BattleBlock Theater’s take on the 2D platformer, but Pit People almost does something even more impressive, by taking an often opaque genre and turning it into an enjoyable romp.

    Pit People is the new and hilarious adventure of The Behemoth, a tragicomedy that combines turn-based strategy with role-playing elements. An affordable gameplay for all kinds of players, it ranks as one of the great indies of the year. Maybe it could be a little more extensive in its campaign mode.

    When all is said and done, it’s the potential for laughter that proves to be Pit People’s standout achievement. The tactical gameplay is interesting and entertaining, but the comedy is the star of the show here. I enjoyed my time with The Behemoth’s new, funky world, as well as the cast of lovable characters who inhabit it, and will fondly remember many of its gags for a long time to come.

    Undoubtedly, one of the surprises so far this year. If you like the genre, you should give it a try.

    Though the game can get boring after long periods, and the abundance of crude jokes can be annoying, Pit People is nevertheless a great strategy game that's at its best when played with others, but a lot of fun when played solo, too.

    With Pit People, Behemoth tried something new and was only partially successful. It has excellent art design, unique world-building and some truly funny moments, but the problems with its combat and structure hinder what could be a hit. Understandably, the game’s weakest parts are those that the studio doesn’t have much experience with.

I expected everything to beAs my very first turn-based strategy game, I had very few doubts of this genre coming from a Behemoth game. I expected everything to be quirky, colorful, funny, and give me something I would never expect before. It did exactly that. The story was very funny, relatable, and a funny villain as well. The supporting characters, combat system, open map, and customization are amazing. I never thought a game in a genre I never played before would be so captivating and so fun to play, which is a surprise for me. Pit People has a fun premise backed up with amazing customization features, engaging combat system, and funny characters. It is one of the best games of 2018 imo. If you've never heard of this game or seen it before, please try it out and play it because it deserves a lot of recognition and praise for The Behemoth's take on the genre.

    My 7 year old son and I love this game. It's great to play couch co-op battles. If you are OK with cartoon violence and assertions e.g. "MyMy 7 year old son and I love this game. It's great to play couch co-op battles. If you are OK with cartoon violence and assertions e.g. "My big butt makes big poops," this is a great family game and a good introduction to turn-based strategy and tactics.

    The coolest hook of this game is that at the end of most matches you can recruit the final remaining enemy to join your team for future battles.

    I like the easy-ish difficulty -- there is an "insane mode" for those who want a challenge.

You will travel from a land of cupcakes and gingerbread houses to the domain of a necromancer, to a volcano ready to erupt. The narrator from previous behemoth games stamper has a hilarious and memorable voice that will make the game truly memorable. As for the game play: you move your team of up to 6 fighters on hexagonal tiles, and use environment to your advantage the best you can. After the intro you will move your party across the map until you reach the main town, and the world is opened up for you to explore. You can fight enemies in PVE or in PVP, in the arena in town or on the world map. I have a had a very fun time playing this game despite some bugs in PVP, which prevent me from giving it the full score of 10, however I have no doubt these problems will soon be fixed!

The game can offer you a lot of customization and battles, no matter you have still a little piece of the Story available. The sidequests, cooperative or vs matches can make you stand a lot playing it.

    Once again, Behemoth delivers a game with a hilarious commentary, stunning visuals, and fresh game play mechanics. The game is extremely funOnce again, Behemoth delivers a game with a hilarious commentary, stunning visuals, and fresh game play mechanics. The game is extremely fun and addicting. it is one of those games that you play and then many hours later you realize that its 5AM and you have to be awake in three hours for work. it is extremely addictive and hard to put down.

    I must applaud the studio, because this game could have been a micro-transaction nightmare, but all the loot must be earned through game-play, and there is a ton of loot. It is AAA quality for indie price. The story is hilarious and gibberish the character's speak never fails to make me laugh. Do not let the aesthetic fool you though, this game can be brutal at times. If you don't believe me, play on permadeath mode.

    My only gripe is that i wish you could have more than two friends on the same team, but co-op is otherwise solid and challenging.
