A nostalgia-fuelled first person non-violent shoot ’em up. Inspired by classic arcade games, Neon is available for Oculus Rift.
To pay off your life debts you’ve been uploaded to one of millions of nano-workbots in the sun’s core to prevent solar flares by breaking down neon isotopes.
You control an ion cannon in a 360º gravitationally affected environment, firing positive and negative ions using left & right triggers at incoming neon isotopes of varying ‘charge’ to eliminate them.
Neon uses a modern day reboot of the classic retro arcade style. Featuring vector polygonal lines and surfaces illuminated by pulsating neon lighting with immersive 360º action.
Each of the 42 levels of the game are carefully crafted to give a solid sense of progression and a steady ramping up of difficulty – ideal for introducing non-gamers to VR but challenging enough for more experienced players. Complete all the levels to unlock Infinity Mode and enter the competition to win a Neon prize bundle including limited edition vinyl of the soundtrack.
Later levels will feature stronger gravitational forces, more isotopes, and new kinds of jeopardy. Boss levels with super-structures add to the fun. And it won’t be long until you’re reaching for the mute button on your sassy AI sidekick Seren.
A selection of power-ups such as slo-mo, shockwave and solar blossom mode add to the fun.
Utilising the talents of three music producers (Forward Memory, Dynamix, and I Am Galactic), Neon features an original soundtrack of ambient electronica and electrotech which complements the modern-retro styling of the game.
