Requires Sword of the Stars: The Pit (base game) to use this DLC


Have you found the cure to the plague yet? Even if you have, there’s more to The Pit than you at first thought, with lots of new areas to explore, items to find… and new dangers! The Pit: MindGames gives you even more old-school dungeon-diving in the Sword of the Stars sci-fi universe, letting your test your skill against The Pit using the mysterious and gifted Solforce Psion officer or the Tarkan Ranger – the first playable alien character!

The Pit will only give up its secrets if you survive and to survive you might need to explore the powerful and deadly potential of your mind!

Mens agitat monstra!

Improving an already good game!

Iluminatro | Aug. 5, 2013 | See all Iluminatro's reviews »

This DLC is improving the main game and changes the pit like you have never seen before. More vicious enemies waiting for you in the shadows and the addition of psy powers to brave them with. Control mechs, summon food or crush the emey with your mind, this dlc makes it possible. The 2 new classes have great gamefeel and make use of the new powers and items supplied. If you want the full Sword of the Stars: The Pit experience, this is a must buy.


A good, little DLC

Cavalieroscuro | July 5, 2013 | See all Cavalieroscuro's reviews »

This DLC adds two new playable characters, ten new floors of challenge and new powers. It will extend the gameplay time of a few hours, but the fun is really high. Graphic is the same of the base game, so no improvments, only a "more of the same" for those who love the vanilla experience.


Makes a Great Experience Even Better

The Pit by itself is a great game; particularly if you're a fan of rogue-likes and the lore of the SotS series. Mindgames increases the replayability by a great deal, the added characters, ability to store items found for your next playthrough, etc really lend well to giving yourself that extra nudge to push alittle further in your next game.


Great addition to the original game

If you enjoyed the original game then you will find this DLC to add and expand the original game. In addition to the original ast and maps, this DLC adds two more characters to the game for the player to play, new powers, new places to explore and stuff to craft. In addition, new enemies unit to learn and defeat. Then theres the new mode for multiplayer to challenge players difficulty levels. All in all, this DLC is a must have for player who enjoyed the original game. Small price for such big addition.


More chances to die

Demilisz | July 3, 2013 | See all Demilisz's reviews »

Sword of the Stars: The Pit is an excellent roguelike game. It was having a nice Alien climate with exploring a vast, dangerous and mulitlevel location known as The Pit. There is a nice turn based combat system with melee and range weapons and of course permadeath mechanic. Three different clasess makes sure the game is for more than one run (assuming you survive to the very end on first try and it was most unlikely) This DLC adds even more awesomeness to already wonderful game. One character with psychic powers and one Alien comes with new ways to play this game and with new tactics to conquer The Pit. And if this isn't enough there are ten more levels full of loot, traps and monsters. So there is much more to gain and even more chances to die down there. Must buy for fans of base game.
