It might be all heavy metallic and shotguns and area demons however no no, this is not Doom. Jupiter Hell is the distinctly not-Doom turn-based roguelike that is been in early entry for a yr and a half. It is practically reached the top of a run, however there’s all the time a brand new run after, is not there? Jupiter Hell is leaving early entry for full launch in August, however the builders say they have plans for post-launch updates too. Oh, and a brand new replace is out right this moment.
In RPS’s Jupiter Hell early access review, it seems like an excellent little bit of demon slaying ripping and tearing.
“Environmental options like exploding barrels not solely honour the hallowed FPS that impressed Jupiter Hell, but additionally amplify this sense of dynamic motion,” Steve Hogarty says. “You possibly can kite enemies to lure them in direction of barrels earlier than manually concentrating on them to make all the pieces pop directly, which is simply as gratifying as it’s in every other style.”
Its authentic early entry launch suffered a bit for lack of breadth, in response to our evaluation. Happily, that is precisely what ChaosForge have spent the final yr and a half including. Jupiter Hell has gotten fairly regular updates with new traits, weapons, degree sorts, and extra.
They don’t seem to be achieved with these simply but, both. A brand new replace known as Expanse launched right this moment with—think about that—extra ranges and traits. Expanse provides 4 new degree branches and three new ranges for every trait. “Every new department has a brand new particular degree, Noxious Mines use the previous Noxious Hole, whereas Infernal Lock has been added to Io major route. Particularly of notice are Europa Ruins and Shadow Halls which characteristic a model new tileset, and particularly fascinating particular ranges,” the develoeprs say.
You possibly can spot the total changelog in ChaosForge’s post.
Jupiter Hell will launch on August fifth, after which the builders say they’ve further updates deliberate. You could find it over on Steam the place they’ve put it on 20% low cost till March 1st.
