Jupiter Hell Beta 0.3.0a (bugfix/performance update)

The ChaosForge crew worked hard to bring you a bugfix update as fast as possible! Following below is a changelog in comparison to 0.3.0. We didn't manage to get all the bugs, but this should still provide a much smoother experience.

Additionally, you'll notice we posted a performance guide on the forum - please take a look especially if you're running on a low-end card (especially Intel's) - you should see major improvements.

We await for your feedback (bugfix version and general)!

CHANGE #--- - terminal map reveal a lot more subtle looking CHANGE #--- - minor optimization pass CHANGE #--- - Europa ice levels made darker FIX #--- - fixed dissapearing meshes on Intel GPUs (hopefully) FIX #--- - fixed crash on win FIX #--- - fixed game not running correctly under OpenGL 4.3 (related to Intel) FIX #--- - fixed final battle start position FIX #--- - fixed source for potential crashes when stacking dead enemies FIX #--- - fixed two rare crash bugs

Jupiter Hell Beta released!

The Beta is here! If you’re a Beta backer or above you should by now have received an e-mail from us with the Beta 0.3.0 Steam Key - check your spam folder! If you can’t find it, please get in touch with us.

The game is still a deep work in progress, but has come a very long way from the early pre-Alpha stages, and has been gradually been improving with input and suggestions from the Inner Circle and Alpha communities. We’re thrilled to open this up now to many more fans and to get more feedback as Jupiter Hell moves into the next stage of development!

The beta is working on both Windows and Linux. OSX users, please be a little patient with us. From now on all updates to the game will be via Steam.

Road to early access

Whilst the core of the game is in place there is still a lot more content to get loaded in. As we move towards open release on Early Access our development focus is now switching towards adding in layers and layers of content. That means more of the following:

  • Player classes with unique traits and abilities
  • Challenge modes, online leaderboards, player achievements, and extra difficulty levels
  • A longer game with two more major locations
  • Modular weapons and armor, more weapons, more items
  • More enemies, bosses and enemy variety
  • Plot details, quests, cutscenes
  • Music, sound, voice acting
  • UI configuration, mouse and controller support

And of course many other things secret or yet to be conceived! Community support is vital at this stage to let us know what works, what doesn’t, and feed in new ideas and suggestions. Make sure to try the beta out and give feedback via the community channels. Let’s plays and other recordings of the game are very welcome - please send us a link to anything you publish as we love to see them!

Jupiter Hell community

We’re thrilled to get to this stage, and we couldn’t do it without the great support of our fans. We always want more feedback, so if you have something to say please get in touch via:

Also, most of the team will be at GiC next week. Get in touch if you want to meet up.

About This Game

Jupiter Hell is a classic, turn-based roguelike set in a 90's 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.
