What is Pit People about?
So the bear from the end of Battleblock Theater that got hit by Hattys hat ray thing was killed which made a bear that was in love with him very angry and caused havoc pretty much because of it, most likely due to grief and not knowing how to handle it
Horatio, the main characters son gets taken by the bear during his anger and so now you have to go get him back which involves you having to go into space and many other places and in the process of doing so you meet some new friends that help you on your journey which includes a princess whos dad got murdered and a cyclops who was banished from this place you have to go to at some point in the game
you also meet a living cupcake who will throw the frosting on his head at you and your friends to heal them though at the cost of him losing his own health in the process
What is the game like?
In the game you use your mouse (or controller) to move your characters on this board which has hexagon shaped tiles to attack things
You can also go to the town to turn on insane mode, change up your team and gear, play multiplayer etc.
The game has cutscenes like Battleblock Theater but with much more animation as they are supposed to be more of a normal cinematic than someone putting on a puppet show to tell the story like Battleblock Theaters cutscenes (both are great though so nothing wrong with that)
