Neon Sword is an open world 3rd person top down action roleplay game with elements of business simulation. The non-linear story has multiple choices that effect the world around you leading you down many paths; the person you become is shaped by your decisions made within the game. 

Development - Back in 2012 we started writing Neon Sword. After numerous prototype tests, we eventually came up with the style that we have now. Once we had eventually settled on our finalised styling, full scale development started in 2016.


Time and Setting:
- Neon Sword takes place in the fictional Quaid City in the year 2083. The setting takes inspiration from late 70s to early 90s Sci-Fi, Cyberpunk and Synthwave - Neon Lights, Big hair and dodgy mustaches are fully included, so you have been warned.

Platforms:- Neon Sword will be initially available on PC. Following on at a later date we aim to release on Nintendo Switch and possibly other consoles.

 Release Date: TBA - 2019

Another crime goes unsolved in the city that is the cesspit of humanity! Well, not if you have any say in the matter as you start a personal crusade of revenge. Are you the hunter or the hunted? You will turn Quaid City upside down hosing the streets clean of the human vermin that infest the dark shadows out of the neon glare. Shape the destiny of Quaid City.

 Do you use commerce or violence as your weapons of choice? Purchase and manage businesses to get on the property ladder and build your income. Manage a deep and vibrant economy in a dynamic world that evolves around your every action. Strive to bring order to a city in the depths of despair. Will you be businessman or the ultimate bounty hunter? Customizing your character for the perfect kill with scores of weapons, skills and accessories that allow you to bring swift justice to the factions that stand between you and sweet revenge.

The time has come to wield the Neon Sword.

Neon Sword has a deep lore with a vast history stemming from the 1980s all the way to the in-game present time of 2083 - you will intereact with many factions and unique NPCs each with their own background and ideas for the future of Quaid city.

Some world lore can read here:

Quaid City Lore 
Neon Sword World Lore

 Neon Sword has a deep faction system based on reputation within those factions. As your reputation grows within factions it will open up new side quests and storylines. Each faction has their own lore which can be read here:

Sixth,Third,
Tong Family,
Dead Code,
RogueBytes



So far, we have fully funded Neon Sword from our own back pockets. This however can only take us so far. With your help, the additional funds will help us to fully polish the game to the standard we know the game deserves and also be able to add more to our amazing 80's inspired soundtrack.

  Japes [Lead developer]

Japes has loved all things cyberpunk/scifi and games since he was a small child and always wanted to create his own world - Neon Sword has been a passion for him since 2012.

Andi [Lead VO - Writer]

Andi came to us after we had heard his VO on a previous game build. Unfortunately the game was never released, but his background in acting, game testing for Team17, gaming website joint owner and also being a published author was perfect. Not only has he lent his voice as a Narrator within the game, but has also influenced the writing of the game quite heavily.

Joey [Composer] 

Joey came to us after seeing Neon Sword on the internet in early 2017. We instantly knew that his synthwave sound and passion for cyberpunk was perfect and this is what has brought us closer together within the team.

The game looks like it uses voxels does that mean we can destroy things and build things?
No. Neon Sword uses the style to bring pixel art to life and have a more retro feel.

Does Neon Sword have a story or is it sandbox? Neon Sword has a very deep story which links in to some of the lore on our website.

Its a small team how can we trust you'll finish the game? Yes, we are a small team, but we have worked hard on Neon Sword and has become our passion. We are dedicated to getting it out in the public eye and believe that the dedication of a few can bring better results than the half arsed attempts of many people in a larger company.  

Reward (Have A Protected NPC Named After You With Exclusive Dialogue) will it look like me?
we can make it look how you want in block form but you may also be added to the players holocell (cellphone) contact list with an animated avatar as seen below on request:

Risks and challenges

Whether or not we are fully funded, Neon Sword will still be released. It has been our passion now for so long to bring this game into the public eye, that it will happen no matter what. As stated above, we want to bring you the best looking game we can, With the funding from Kickstarter we can polish the game to it's fullest before release. The main risk we face is not getting the funding to do this and we are leaving it in your hands.
