Treneon Games, a new Canadian game studio, has just released a reveal trailer for their upcoming game, Neon Town.
Neon Town is an upcoming single-player, top-down action game for the PC featuring fast-paced combat and tough boss battles. The game seeks to revive the feeling of old school action games, with an emphasis on tough and rewarding boss fights.
âYouâre just one big gray area; did a ton of good, but a whole lot of bad.â â an ominous message from the reveal trailer.
When playing the game, youâre dropped down into an unknown Transylvanian town that is constantly illuminated by colorful neon lights. The town is essentially a version of purgatory, and you play as a character that has lived a life of mixed morals. While heâs done a lot of good throughout his life, heâs also done a lot of terrible things. The trailer reveals that you must travel to the tower at the center of town and escape by defeating twelve bosses with up to fourteen upgradable weapons. Other features include:
â Five Spirit powers that give you elemental powers such as frost and fire to give you an advantage in combat
â A Colosseum Mode to test your skills against some of the most challenging bosses and enemies in the entire game
â A soundtrack by members of Windfall Foundation
â Fully animated cutscenes for each daunting boss encounter
Perhaps the most unique feature of Neon Town is its visuals. As the title implies, the game features bright neon colors and hand-painted visual style, the latter of which is reminiscent of games like Braid. Though the trailer doesnât show too much gameplay, it does set up an interesting premise and draws you in with its visuals and atmosphere.
If your fans of games like Tango Fiesta, HELLDIVERS, or Earth Overclocked, then you may be interested in Neon Town.
