Default Sword of the Stars: The Pit - Impressions @ IndieStatik

IndieStatik has played Sword of the Stars: The Pit and share their impressions of the game.
At the end of the day, The Pitís grand undoing is that itís merely a fun, solid game in a genre where the competition is often completely free and of exceptional quality. Any praise is going to sound damningly weak when there are genre titans out there like TOME that arenít asking for a penny in return. What we have here is a solid foundation that, if supported, could grow into a universally recommendable roguelike. At the moment, itís merely a distraction Ė a slightly insubstantial snack between larger, more developed meals. Thatís not to say that itís a bad game by any means, just that Iím really hoping that Kerberos decide to expand The Pit over time, starting with their proposed addition of a Psionic class (even more System Shock 2 parallels?) and some new content to freshen up those samey rooms.
