Creepy Jar’s Next Title Has a New Name: StarRupture

Creepy Jar sheds the mythological shackles of the game’s previous name and proudly announces a new name perfectly suited for its ambitious sci-fi setting

Warsaw, Poland – Dec. 19th, 2023 — Earlier this year, as part of the summer edition of the PC Gaming Show,  Creepy Jar, the Polish studio behind the highly acclaimed survival simulator, Green Hell, revealed their anticipated next title. An ambitious cross between base building, exploration, combat, and resource management on an alien planet torn by a catastrophic cycle of destruction caused by its life-giving star, Creepy Jar is excited to finally be able to reveal the game’s new title—one that the studio feels to be much more representative of the unique world they’re creating—calling it StarRupture.


Being built from the ground up in Unreal Engine 5, the development team decided that the name  is mythological connotations didn’t accurately fit their vision. Speaking on this, Creepy Jar founder and CEO, Krzysztof Kwiatek said, “We wanted to come up with a new title that more accurately described the dangerous sci-fi world we’re creating.


Kwiatek continues, stating, “We had to break away from the mythology-based roots of old game and we landed on StarRupture. Originating from the base word ‘rupture’—as in a break or a disturbance—the new name also closely ties to the name of the planet’s star which is aptly named, Ruptura.


For a deeper look into the name change and everything that the team’s been working on since the game’s reveal, Creepy Jar has released the first in what will be an ongoing series of devlogs for StarRupture:

As the developers work towards StarRupture’s Early Access PC launch, Creepy Jar will release further devlogs in the coming months for exclusive behind-the-scenes looks at the development process. Everything from production milestones to sneak peeks at some of the game’s many mechanics, enemies, and mysteries are all on the table. Known for their eagerness to be transparent with their community, Creepy Jar is excited to continue sharing updates with fans of StarRupture as much as they focused on doing so with Green Hell.

StarRupture sets itself in the story of man versus nature taking place in an otherworldly and breathtaking sci-fi environment where elemental cataclysms of extreme temperatures loom as a constant danger. The player takes up the mantle of a convict exiled from the Earth to serve their sentence by mining and expanding industrial production alongside researching new technology on a seemingly hospitable new planet rife with mystery and danger. Tasked with surviving the waves of fiery inferno or extreme cold—not to mention facing down against hostile enemy monsters in tense combat—each cycle spells destruction yet ushers in a new era of growth and rebuilding. Whether solo or as part of an up-to-4-player co-op experience, players will explore, adapt, mine, gather resources, and build complex machinery to survive and prosper.

Though by definition it is a base-building simulator, StarRupture is much more. The game will invite players to push beyond, to stay resilient and sharp against every assault, building and forming prior to the cycling eviscerating conditions on an otherwise beautiful planet. For fans of builders, management, sci-fi action, and combat StarRupture will challenge all comers to utilize the technology at their fingertips and weather both the extremities and fierce enemies in order to survive and create a prosperous industrial complex.
