Jupiter Hell Kickstarter is LIVE!
« on: November 15, 2016, 11:22 »

Jupiter Hell, the spiritual successor to Doom the Roguelike, has now launched on Kickstarter!



Jupiter Hell Kickstarter

With Jupiter Hell we are aiming to get a new generation hooked on the hardcore roguelike formula. Combining traditional gameplay with a modern look and feel, it is a game that can appeal to both long-term roguelike players and new gamers that have embraced the likes of X-COM.

We need your support to make this happen! Please visit the Kickstarter page, check out our video and the details of the game, and pledge if you can. You help in sharing news of this is also much needed - please spread the word and bring Jupiter Hell to everyone!

I wish I had more disposable income, but you're getting as much as I can send your way - gotta at least live up to my DoomRL forum rank ;)

I will spread the word where I can - I know a few places I can put it out that might generate some interest.

Day 3 is not over at all, and already brought ~3%. Not too bad.
Holding my breath, tracking: http://www.kicktraq.com/projects/2020043306/jupiter-hell-a-modern-turn-based-sci-fi-roguelike/#chart-daily

Sidekick predicts success with a 71% probability. Given the marketing campaign doesn't read it and relax.
http://sidekick.epfl.ch/campaign/643979114-jupiter-hell---a-modern-turn-based-sci-fi-roguelike

...OMG, the prediction went down to 40% while I was writing this. Well, it's always on the verge.

Sidekick now predicting 18% chance of success, which to be frank is just silly! In Kickstarter terms we've had a great start. We need to do more work to get the message spread (and we need everyone's help posting to Facebook and the like too) but we're quietly confident this will be a success.

We've just posted our 2nd campaign update, with a big bunch of information about both game design and the story:

That's a great update! I really love it.

Though, don't call a statistics silly - it's the primary way to know the truth.
As for my opinion, project needs to collect 50% in the first three days, or it is. Yesterday the funding curve looked pretty bad, like it was going to flatline on 50%, today it's inclination has increased, which is great. I'm totally with you on the point "more work to get message spread", and I wouldn't be confident in Kickstarter; I would be active as if my life depended on it.

Even the spike in the end doesn't happen without a heavy-marketing-lifting.

I wish you a great success in that!

I wonder how many people have the opportunity to fight themselves in a video game...

Jupiter Hell Kickstarter is finally here and I still never got that veteran angelic badge I wanted so much. I think it's time I reprise my role as videogame janitor, corpse disposal is a tough job but somebody's gotta do it.

Really hoping for this Kickstarter's success! Trying to get people in to DoomRL was hard so I'm hoping Jupiter Hell will win them over.
