Today’s Spotlight is The Pit: Infinity, a roguelite FPS by Kerberos Productions.

The Pit: Infinity is essentially an FPS remake of Kerberos’ prior roguelite, Sword of the Stars: The Pit. You can check out a trailer above.

Choose from one of three classes and delve into The Pit, a devious dungeon that was once a high-tech alien research facility where scientists from an ancient race experimented on lifeforms from across the known universe. The game can be played solo, or you can team up with three friends in online multiplayer.

The Pit: Infinity is available on Windows PC via Steam for $19.99.

Here’s a rundown of the game:

The Pit: Infinity is a cooperative rpg with first-person-shooter controls and roguelike permadeath. It is meant to be played solo, or cooperatively with up to three friends together.

Players will take on the role of a Marine, Scout or Engineer character and enter the Pit, a high-tech dungeon in which diabolical experiments are performed on life forms gathered from all over the galaxy.
