Jupiter Hell is a classic, turn-based roguelike that has a release date for Linux and Windows on Steam. The games set in a 90’s flavored sci-fi universe. Taking place on the moons of Jupiter, while pitting a lone space marine against overwhelming demonic forces.

Jupiter Hell gameplay will have you rip and tear zombies, demons and unmentionable monstrosities. All while using classic weaponry such as shotguns, chainguns, railguns and the trusty chainsaw. Shining though CRT monitors and heavy mental tunes. Coming to Linux, Mac and Windows on May 31st, 2019.

Currently there’s no public way to get into the beta due to Steam restrictions. We’re thinking of a separate beta program.”
