Jupiter Hell is a classic, turn-based roguelike set in a 90s flavored sci-fi universe. Set on the moons of Jupiter, the game pits a lone space marine against overwhelming demonic forces. Rip and tear zombies, demons and unmentionable monstrosities, using classic weaponry such as shotguns, chainguns, railguns and the trusty chainsaw. All to the shine of CRT monitors and the tune of heavy metal! Every playthrough you’ll find new ways to experience familiar settings.
Customize your character with new weapons, items and abilities gained as you progress through a permadeath-prone hell. Beat the game to unlock more difficult challenges rather than grinding to make the game easier. Benefit from classic roguelike turns with modern shooter sensibilities. Controls are immediate and accessible while retaining the back-end depth of a turn-based RPG. Blast through procedurally-generated civilian sectors, military space bases and mining colonies on the violent moons of Jupiter.
Jupiter Hell is built by ChaosForge, the team that’s been making top-down, cosmic hell roguelikes since 2002. Just like Doom, the tone and setting is gloriously campy; I love the gratuitous profanity and violence as it’s all delivered in an endearing tongue-in-cheek manner and doesn’t take itself too seriously. The music and sound effects are also fantastic, with a rocking metal soundtrack and great ambient sound effects (sound being a particularly important aspect as enemy barks will often give away their position). The game has some hilarious voice acting as well.
