Description
BACK ON KICKSTARTER NOW!

Jupiter Hell is a tactical turn-based roguelike game in a 90's flavored sci-fi universe, from the studio that brought you Doom the Roguelike. Set on the moons of Jupiter, the game pits a lone space marine against overwhelming demonic forces. Rip and tear undead, demons and unmentionable monstrosities, using classic weaponry including shotguns, chainguns, railguns and the trusty chainsaw. All to the shine of CRT monitors and the tune of heavy metal!

Features

  • Classic roguelike! - Turn-based, grid based, procedurally generated environments and permadeath.
    Several difficulty levels and dozens of challenge modes - no matter what skill level, there will be always something more to achieve, something nastier to master
  • Dynamic animation system - despite being turn-based, you never wait for the player to move, play as fast as you like and see the animation adapt to it
  • Streamlined UI and gameplay - no need for manuals, just jump in. Whether you want the easy way of playing by mouse, or the fast way by keyboard, the game offers both.
  • G(l)orious visuals - explosions, blood, dynamic shadows, effects galore.
  • Randomness! - from the big to the small, Jupiter Hell will never feel samey - the plot and missions will vary each game, the procedural levels will provide new tactical challenges, and even small finishing touches like background furniture will have variety to give a handmade feel.
  • Loot - Raid corpses and plunder secret corporate storehouses for kick♥♥♥♥♥new weapons and armour.

Story

A mega-corporation conducting mining operations across the Jovian moons has somehow opened up a gate to… somewhere else. A lone marine is now the only one who can stand against the demonic forces of Hell and shut the gate before they overwhelm the whole Solar System.

The game starts with the player, a lone marine, arriving at a base on Callisto and being confronted by demonically possessed former soldiers. The player will shoot, blast and chainsaw their way across the moons of Jupiter, discovering the secrets of corporate money-grabbers and ancient cults, before arriving at Dante Station, a mysterious structure in orbit above Jupiter’s Red Spot.

I don't think that the trailer properly illustrates that the game is turn-based. It looks really nice and fluid, but it appears to be leaving people that aren't bothering to read the description confused.

People in comments have no fucking clue what this game is comparing it to Alien shooter and Alien swarm. Holy shit what a bunch of retards. It's DoomRL in 3d. Google it you idiots.

I know you're doing an ASCII version, but any plans to update the sprites for DoomRL for this game as a third option?
