Restore A Corrupt Mega-City To Its Former Glory In Neon Blood

Investigate corruption in the planet's last Mega-City in pixel art adventure, Neon Blood. Coming to PC and consoles in 2024.

It was announced that Chaotic Brain Studio would be at Gamiberica, as part of the Meo XL Games in Porto showcasing Neon Blood. Alright, that’s passed now, and my audience isn’t typically Portuguese anyway, but I had to look into this brightly lit claret.

The developers have an insight into the future as, apparently, the world that we claim to know ends, and two cities – Blind City and Bright City – come under the umbrella of a corrupt mega-city called Viridis.

As former police detective Axel McCoin, you’ll uncover the corruption that plagues this mega city, perhaps restoring peace to its pixel art foundations. Here are some of the features:

  • Neon Blood unveils an elaborate and deep story with a cyberpunk theme that serves as a thread to tell the story of Axel and the relationships he will establish throughout his adventure. 
  • Character interaction and exploration will lead Axel through the micropolis of Viridis revealing the different realities of the two cities to players.
  • Neon Blood has been created using stunning 2.5D visuals, based on the use of 2D sprites in PixelArt with 3D-modelled environments, maintaining an aesthetic differentiation between the 2D characters and the 3D environments.
  • Explore the two deeply contrasting cities with markedly different aesthetics – the futuristic sci-fi cityscape of Bright City and dark, gritty cyberpunk-inspired Blind City.
  • Use the investigative skills of detective Axel McCoin to reveal the dark secrets of Viridis and set in motion a revolution that could destroy the foundations of society.

Neon Blood is heading to PC, PlayStation, Xbox, and the Nintendo Switch. Of course, you can wishlist it on Steam now.
