Awesome review from CGR Undertow!
In the Pit is a critically-acclaimed audio-only stealth action game. You control a vicious creature who lives at the bottom of a dark pit, and eats the hapless people who fall in. The game's audio-only nature means that there are no graphics at all; you have to rely entirely on your senses of hearing and touch to play.

"The game spins a surprising amount of gameplay variation from its basic principles, but fundamentally, it's a simple concept, executed with aplomb... it's an unusually atmospheric, immersive experience, without a single pixel's worth of graphics."
-- MTV Multiplayer

"In the Pit may be simplistic, but it's an intriguing, creative game that showcases the designer's talent and makes me anticipate his future efforts."
-- Honest Gamers

"Scarily atmospheric, 'In The Pit' offers an audio only game with simple gameplay mechanics and controls to a mainstream market. More please!"
-- Special Effect's acceessible Game Base

"I personally loved the game. It made me laugh out loud at least twice and I really enjoyed the novelty."
-- Negative Gamer

"In the Pit isn’t the best indie game I’ve played... but it is perhaps the most innovative. And to me at least, that’s just as valuable. ...I recommend it to anyone who will listen."
-- The Indie Ocean

You can play In the Pit now on your Xbox 360 via XBLIG.

One major caveat is that this game uses controller vibration and analog joysticks as core gameplay mechanics, so the PC and Mac version will also require a controller with variable vibration and at least one analog joystick, like an Xbox 360 Controller.

Last comment is 2 1/2 years ago...with Greenlight retired and this game still Greenlit, what is the state of it getting a release? The dev should get this out there are start raking in the Steam cash!

This was such and interesting and unique indie title on the xbox 360; I'm sure it's not too late to really hit a niche market on Steam.

The idea is nice, but if you have an audio only game, the audio better be top freaking notch
