Kerberos Productions' Sword of the Stars: The Pit has been released, alongside a playable demo, exclusively on the Gamersgate digital delivery service
. The game is an old-school style dungeon crawler that has been built around the narrative of their successful strategy series.
Sword of the Stars: The Pit is a fun, fast, light-hearted turn-based RPG, where the tradition of Rogue and other old school dungeon-diving games meets the sci-fi Sword of the Stars universe, where the question to ask isn't "Did you make it to the end?" so much as "How far did you make it into The Pit before the monsters got you?"
The demo features six levels, and the DRM-free game can be purchased from Gamersgate with a 10% discount for its first week.

It is great fun and the devs seem pretty happy to talk to the community.
If you like Rouge-likes it is certainly worth the $10.
I would think if you liked Faster Than Light, you would like this too.
