Jupiter Hell is a turn based science fiction roguelike. Here is the latest update.

Jupiter Hell October Update

Posted by Darren Grey

Firstly, some apologies are in order. We've been poor at communication these last few months. Though we've had regular tweets and Twitch streams, but have been neglecting proper updates on Kickstarter. We're very sorry! We're developers, not natural marketing people, but we shall try to do better.

We've also had some delays in the delivery schedule. The original plan stated an Early Access version by November. Development is going very steadily, but with some things taking longer than anticipated and some of the development schedule being rearranged. Our current plan is to shortly release our third pre-alpha to the Inner Circle, and then the alpha by the year end.

Further development updates:

  • Two new programmers have joined the team. Olgierd is working on rendering and resource management. Emil is working on the game's audio engine.
  • We're now integrating engine tools into the game which will make the Jupiter Hell more open to modding. This was originally planned to be done much later, but is far more effective if done at an early stage.
  • Physics in the game can been optimised, meaning it will perform much better on a wide variety of machines.
  • Shadows have been improved, and a new optional shadow algorithm will be available for stronger hardware (see comparison below).
  • Resource management has been added to the game.
  • We have a new sound engine ready for implementation, with Roland working on the soundtrack and audio samples.
  • New tilesets and enemies have been added.


Art

Ewa and Lukasz have been busy on the art side, including producing these lovely new concept pieces:

Graphically I think this game is looking quite impressive.

Been a while, hasn't it? Almost forgot about this doom-like game.

"… thing about Morrowind is we did far more than we could, far less polished than we should. It's a miracle that it works at all… there's too much, and it's like jazz… a product like Oblivion - far better software… but Morrowind… oh there's so much delicious nonsense in that." ~ words of wisdom by K.Rolston
