Castle Crashers developer The Behemoth has given Game 4 an official title.


Game 4 is henceforth Pit People, The Behemoth has announced.

The title refers to a combat arena; the original concept art suggested a game that took place entirely in a gladiatorial-style pit. In a new blog post The Behemoth said its design has shifted to adventuring elsewhere, but as a key moment is set in the pit, the title has stuck.

A new website has opened for the project now that The Behemoth has officially selected a name. If you’ve been following the project you will already, know a fair bit about it but for everyone else Pit People is a “strategic game of positioning” playable in single-player, two player co-op, or 2v2 PvP.

It’s coming to Steam and Xbox One but has not been dated. If you’d like to know more check out the teaser cinematic from August 2014, or the first 20 minutes of Pit People in the video below, which was released back in May.
