Sword of the Stars: The Pit - Update on Gameplay
On Indiegogo an update appeared for Sword of the Stars: The Pit we reported about before. In this update a bit more gameplay information is given:
How do the game controls work?
Movement is keyboard-controlled, with standard WASD for directional control, and the spacebar to interact with objects. You use the mouse to control other parts of the GUI.
How does crafting work?
As you collect items, you can craft them in two ways: either transform them or combine them. When you take a hunk of Raw Meat and put it into the portastove to make nice safe-and-edible Cooked Meat, you are transforming the item. When you take the bits and pieces you have ripped off of destroyed enemy machinery and make yourself a Sonic Grenade, you are combining items.
Will there be an Infinite Dungeon Mode with procedurally generated levels that get even more harder (like, how deep can you get?)?
If you ever manage to get to the bottom and find the cure it will open up an infinite mode, but rest assured…we are going to make that very very hard! ;)
What’s the difference between the Marine, the Engineer and the Scout Character?
The Marine is big on brute force. Sol Force Engineers are trained to use finesse, and to work well with machinery and high-tech devices. The Scout is a hybrid, cross-trained to have a wide range of basic skills.
