What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

TL;DR: We intend to make the game the best it can be by listening to player feedback.

We believe that traditional roguelikes make best use of Early Access especially if they actively engage with their community. We promise frequent updates, usually twice a month, based a lot on player feedback - you can already notice this from our update history and some topics on the steam forums! Roguelikes have traditionally been a long-brewing expierience that like good wine got better with age.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“While we plan to support the game for several years with regular content updates, there is a state of the game that we can confidently call 1.0, which will provide a polished complete experience. We intend to achieve that milestone before the end of 2020.”

How is the full version planned to differ from the Early Access version?

“Roguelike development is usually a horizontal affair - adding more possibilities, more items, more traits and challenges, and adding more classes.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“The game is playable from start to finish, all the features described on the store page are implemented. What we are still expanding upon is the breadth of the game - more item, enemy and level variety, more special levels and challenges and better modding support. We're also committed to constantly improving performance and visual quality.”

Will the game be priced differently during and after Early Access?

“We plan to gradually raise the price as we ship new content and features.”

How are you planning on involving the Community in your development process?

“Whether here on the Steam forums, or on our ChaosForge forums, be it Twitter or Reddit, we read all feedback. Anyone that has been active on our forums during our ASCII roguelike game days can tell that we treat all feedback seriously and very often implement player suggestions. Roguelike development is a very community driven effort :)”

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. All to the shine of CRT monitors and the tune of heavy metal!

Tactical, turn-based combat with real-time responsiveness


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.

Meaningful RPG progression


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.

Randomized levels set all over Jupiter’s orbit


Blast through procedurally-generated civilian sectors, military space bases and mining colonies on the violent moons of Jupiter. Every playthrough you’ll find new ways to experience familiar settings.

Original shooter roguelike lineage


Jupiter Hell is built by ChaosForge, the team that’s been making top-down, cosmic hell roguelikes since 2002.
