Neon Chrome - a top-down cyberpunk shooter from 10tons

So, as some of you know, we're working on a new top-down shooter called Neon Chrome. This time we wanted to make the shooting happen indoors and in a cyberpunk world. This means lots of neon lights, cybernetics and that you can demolish a building from the inside out with guns and explosives. I must say it's extremely fun and satisfying already.

We've released some material from Neon Chrome lately and we're hoping to go to Greenlight within two months. Meanwhile go to http://neonchromegame.com to see videos and other material. While you can do that, we'll be working on the game :)

About This Game



Thousands of aliens, zombies, giant spiders, mutant lizards, and more are on the attack - can you survive the onslaught? In Crimsonland you will unlock new weapons and perks constantly improving your abilities and arsenal. Your screen will be filled with literally hundreds of monsters and thousands of giblets. Grab your gun and prepare for endless hours of intense top-down shooter fun!

The original Crimsonland was released in 2003. After the game was greenlit at the end of 2013, 10tons decided to give the game a complete tune-up. The brand new 2014 version introduces countless gameplay fixes, a new chapter with new enemies, new perks, and new weapons. On top of that we've done a complete art overhaul!



What are perks? Perks are like talents in an RPG game. You earn XP by killing monsters and with XP you earn levels. After leveling up you get to choose a perk. For example, a perk called Fastloader enables you to reload extremely fast. During a session perks will stack up a and every game will be a bit different. You'll unlock perks during the quest mode after which they become available in the survival game modes.



We've created a huge arsenal of 30 unique weapons ranging from the humble pistol to the mysterious Shrinkifier 5k. The weapons are unlocked by playing the quest mode and they become available in survival game modes as well. The better your arsenal - the better chances you have at scoring higher outside the quest mode.



Crimsonland features up to four player local co-op. All game modes including the quest can be played in co-op mode. There are also separate leaderboards for co-op games so gather your friends and show the internet who wields the gauss shotgun like a pro!



  • Quest mode with six chapters
  • FIVE survival modes: Survival, Rush, Blitz, Weapon Picker, and Nukefism
  • 30 unique weapons
  • 55 awesome perks
  • Steam leaderboards: global and friends
  • Leaderboards for co-op: Gang up on them!
  • Steam achievements & stats
  • Full controller support
  • Up to four player local co-op

Its hard to thumbs down this game as its still a good game.

Its just that for an update to a classic its terrible. The original didnt look as good, but this update just ruins several key gameplay mechanics, while slapping a fresh coat of paint on it.

The reason everyone liked the original was because of the gameplay, even at its release the original was a pretty ugly looking game that played beautifully which is ultimately what matters.

Its pretty obvious that it has been dumbed down for a controller friendly playstyle

While this still has enough of the original in it to be a pretty good, fun game, honestly just play the original instead of this watered down version.

If the developers just added a "classic mode" toggle in the options which reverted the changes to the perks (specifically telekinesis), put perks back in campaign, basically an option to play a 100% faithful port of the real game with the new improved graphics (which I'm ambivalent on, its not really important for me.), I would gladly give it a thumbs up.

This game in 5min
http://youtu.be/ctDxGFAu11w

this is a top down shooter.
there are 6 Levels with 10 boards each (so 60 in all) and 3 difficulties.
each board has a set type and number of enemies you must kill.
you get 30 different guns, 5+ power-ups, & tones of perks.
your guy does move as fast as a snail but the enemies do also so i guess it works.
most of your deaths will be to the random gun that drops and trying to go knee deep in enemies for a power-up.

For me there are a few points that make this not quite as compelling as the original version.
But it's still Crimsonland; it's still fun and better than most other games of the style.

Important notice: contrary to what people think, there is an option to play the game on quest mode with perks. Just pause the game while playing a mission on quest mode and type the word "grim" (without quotes). This must be repeated everytime you launch the game.

I've played this game for many hours on my phone (there the perks option is not hidden) and had lots of fun, and I had an even better experience on my pc, as it is a lot easier to play the game with a controller. This is a really nice top-down shooter with very cool perks, great weapon variety and different game modes that you unlock as you play the quests.

If you've ever played 2003 version, you won't like this one. Neither do I.
It probably would be worth trying - to spend a coffe break at work, for instance - if not for the price.
The common truth is that the customer pays NOT for the effort but for the RESULT of the effort. In this case people pay mostly for the name of the game, for the "brand". And it's now hollow.
It's sad but I'm glad that i've bought it within a cheap bundle with other games.
