Gamedust announces a free update to Yupitergrad, which puts your swinging skills to the test, unlocks a 120 Hz mode for Oculus Quest 2 goggles, and brings many fixes and improvements.

Komrades, spring is in full swing! However, that doesn't mean you can lounge around in space cabins somewhere around the rings of Jupiter. You need to roll up your jumpsuit sleeves and get to work. Next Challenges update featuring ten brand new levels in Time Attack mode will be waiting for you from May 20. Be careful, though, because you'll encounter new obstacles and traps as you navigate the winding corridors!

Unorthodox but intriguing, Yupitergrad promises a space exploration package unlike any other.

Gaming Bolt

Aware of this threat, we commissioned the Social Spaciety Institute for Space Innovation to develop many improvements and optimizations. The researchers were happy to tell us that 120Hz mode has been unlocked in Oculus Quest 2! Along with the technical news, we also add something for the Slavic soul that is within each of us. As you set off to beat more records, you will hear new music that will make swinging through space corridors even more energetic! What's important, the update is free, just like meals in the company canteen (upon presentation of a relevant letter from your supervisor) and available on Viveport, Steam, and Oculus stores. Next Challenges will come to PlayStation VR shortly after.

Yupitergrad is a game that's perfectly designed for VR and is a great way of tricking yourself into some physical activity.

The Sixth Axis

Yupitergrad is a uniquely styled space VR game that will test your skill at deftly traversing the trap-infested corridors of a space station. The game was very warmly received by gamers and reviewers, which is best reflected by the score on vrgamecritic based on 36 reviews - 75/100. Yupitergrad is available on Viveport, Steam, Oculus Store, and PlayStation Store. A free version of Yupitergrad: Sneaki Peaki is available on Steam and SideQuest, includes selected Time Attack levels and a short tutorial version.

The simplicity of the game and the locomotion system turn out to marry well with virtual reality.


In summary, Next Challenges update includes:

  • 10 new stages for Time Attack mode with new traps
  • 120Hz refresh rate for Oculus Quest 2 goggles
  • New music
  • Small quality of life updates;

Social Spaciety, out!

About Yupitergrad
It was an ordinary day in your life as a Slavic cosmonaut. You went on a mission, wearing your space tracksuit with three stripes of quality. What could have gone wrong when you were so thoroughly prepared?
Your task was to go to Jupiter base, test the new device, launch the experiment to produce the fuel, and return home right after with your space shuttle. Obviously, following Murphy’s Law - nothing went as planned.Since I remember everything was an uphill climb for us Slavs. It couldn't have been any different here. But it made us strong, amirite?

So kiss your babushka goodbye and become a space-traveling Indiana Jones. Roam through an industrial space station with grappling hooks and spatial boosters. See how acrobatics in space, zapping off ledges and walls feel like. Experience the perspective of a space comrade, arcade platforming, and challenging riddles. All soaked in a gritty, full-on Slav, humorous story.
