Cel-Shaded Dieselpunk Adventure ‘Yupitergrad’ Swings Onto Rift And Vive

Swing your way through a perilous space station like a Soviet Spiderman in Yupitergrad


Indie developer Gamedust has today released its new VR project Yupitergrad for PC. Playable with Vive and Oculus headsets.

Yupitergrad is a space-themed, puzzle-platformer game with fifty levels. The adventure follows a Slavic cosmonaut, with suction cups for hands, trying to navigate their Jupiter space station after a failed mission.

To celebrate the game’s launch, Gamedust has released a launch trailer which can be found below:

The game is designed to minimize motion sickness for VR players. Movement in-game mostly coming down to acrobatics involving your suction-cup hands or other tools, such as grappling hooks.

You can find the game’s key features below courtesy of the publisher:

  • Minimal risk of motion sickness thanks to innovative design.
  • Over 50 tight-packed levels to explore and conquer.
  • Indiana Jones-like navigation via grappling hooks and boosters.
  • Lots of crazy platforming stunts.
  • Riddles and spatial puzzles.
  • “Dieselpunk in space” atmosphere.
  • Slavik humor and peculiar story.
  • Original, stylized art.
  • Soundtrack by acclaimed video games music composer – Piotr Surmacz.

While the game is currently available only on PC, a PlayStation VR version is in development. However, at the time of this writing, a release date has yet to be announced.
