About

On the distant world of Arbuda IV lies THE PIT - a diabolical alien super-laboratory where the most insane scientific experiments in the galaxy are conducted.

The agents of SOLFORCE have been given a mission - infiltrate THE PIT and destroy the alien mastermind in command!

    

"Kerberos kindly agreed to answer some of our newbie 3D printing questions. But first, let’s see how and where player produced miniatures feature in THE PIT."
Geek Native

"Aliens. They’re almost never up to any good. And on Arbuda IV, that’s certainly the case."

 Here at Kerberos, we believe that 3D printing is a revolution in progress, not just in game dev and production but in the daily lives of gamers.

All the figure prototyping on The Pit was done with a FormLabs Form2 printer. As you can see from our photos and video, it did an excellent job! As the price of 3D printers continues to drop, more and more gamers will be able to print their own figs for personal use at home.

We see this day coming and want to support it. We have set 3 support tiers, (Engineer, Completist and Meglomaniac) that will include the print files for all the figs that are funded for this campaign! You can also expect future Kerberos board games with 3D assets to take the world of 3D printing into account. Vive la 3D!

 

THE PIT: The Board Game is a sci-fi dungeon-crawler adventure set in the SWORD OF THE STARS universe of video games!

Explore the monster infested rooms of THE PIT!

BATTLE over 50 types of the most lethal alien monsters in the galaxy, including classic creatures from the SWORD OF THE STARS games!

Defeat your foes and clear rooms to acquire LOOT! Over 400 item cards are yours for the taking! Equip your characters with the WEAPONS, ARMOR, and other items you discover to better your chances of survival!

Once you’ve cleared a floor, move on to the next one! The deeper you go, the more powerful the enemies, and the greater the rewards!

Reach the FINAL FLOOR and face down the LORD OF THE PIT himself and his army of monsters! It’s KILL OR BE KILLED!

THE PIT is designed for 1-4 players, ages 12 and up! Conquering the FINAL FLOOR is a true achievement, and players can continue the game even after the LORD OF THE PIT is slain for more adventure and bigger challenges!

Risks and challenges

This is our first Tabletop Kickstarter, but it is our fourth crowdfunding campaign. We have successfully delivered three video game titles over the last five years with crowdfunding support, including physical campaign perks which required printing and shipping. We have learned how to complete our projects in a timely fashion, and how to avoid the pitfalls and delays associated with fulfillment. We've also put a great deal of time and research into the process of releasing a game for tabletop players.

We have spent over a year both working on the game itself, including several rounds of prototyping and play-testing its mechanics and minis. We have also researched the particulars of tabletop manufacturing, in order to minimize any possible delay in delivering the final box.

Our game will be manufactured in China, which is typical, and there are some possible delays that can crop up with international production and shipping. We will notify backers immediately if any issue arises that may keep us from meeting our projected shipping date of Q4 in 2018. Our priority will be to deliver a quality product.
