Build 1.13 Released - Full Patch Notes

Feedback suggested that the very early game could benefit from additional combat variety so build 1.13 adds two completely new gadgets and significantly improves the Blink gadget to make it far more responsive and versatile.

Improved Blink
Instead of blinking a relative distance based on a ship's current direction and speed, Blink now teleports a set distance in the direction that the ship is facing. Your ship's speed is retained after the Blink but the direction of movement after blinking is now changed to match the direction of the Blink.

Additionally, if you are already holding one or more thrust keys (Forward, backwards, and any of the four strafe directions), Blink will instead teleport in that direction.

For example:
  • Left Strafe + Blink = Blink Left
  • Right Strafe + Forward + Blink = Blink diagonally forwards and to the right.
  • Reverse + Blink = Blink backwards
These changes make Blink instantly responsive and much more predictable, opening up far more versatility to the way Blink can be used during combat.


New Gadget added - Rebound
Rebound is the first totally new gadget. Once installed it causes projectiles from certain weapons to bounce off anything that doesn't take damage.
  • Rebound is a level 1 gadget and can be unlocked soon after starting the game.

  • Weapons affected : Main Guns, Inferno Gun, Flak Cannon

  • Various versions of this upgrade unlock as you progress through the game.

  • Version 1 allows one bounce, V2 allows two bounces, etc.

  • Rebound is also stackable. Eg. Install two Version 1 upgrades and bullets will bounce twice.

New Gadget : Time Warp
The second new gadget added in this build, Time Warp, dynamically slows the passage of time once activated. Think of it as NeonXSZ's version of bullet time.
  • The first version should be available to loot or buy at around level 5.

  • Does not slow down turn/aiming speed.

  • Stackable: Activating one Time Warp gadget, will activate all Time Warp gadgets currently installed with their time durations stacked together.

  • With two high level versions of Time Warp installed, it's possible for the duration of the effect to last for more than 10 seconds.
Other Changes
  • Fixed a new issue that caused 'visual' stutter (not framerate related stutter) when running the game significantly below 100% gamespeed.

  • Added negative audio sound effect if trying to activate any gadget without sufficient energy.

Combined with the existing early game gadgets (Gyro Shield, Drones, and Electrocute) and the many other existing upgrades, the first few hours of gameplay now offer far more build diversity and combat variety.

Hotfix Build 1.101 is live

Since the 1.1 release, where Joystick support was added, it was discovered that high precision flight sticks suffered slightly with an overly large deadzone. This hotfix adds a 'Controller Deadzone' slider to the Controls window to allow for precise control of this setting.

It is advised that you don't alter this setting for Xbox Controllers. The default 0.19 deadzone setting is ideal for less sensitive gamepads. Lower values are best suited for precision flight sticks only.

We also took this opportunity to slightly increase the dodge ability for all enemies. Each enemy has unique AI and the dodge ability varies from one enemy to the next. For example, some enemies may never dodge. However, you should see many enemies jinking and jiving much more aggressively during heavy combat than in previous builds.

If you run into any problems with this hotfix, such as phantom movement due to the new deadzone settings, ensure that the new deadzone slider is not set too low. If the deadzone is too small, it can pick up unwanted movement from connected gamepads and joysticks.

“NeonXSZ’s gameplay is nearly flawless in execution. It can’t be overstated just how well Intravenous Software nailed gameplay, and I can’t think of a single thing I would change....This is absolutely exhilarating when fighting several enemies at once, and the fact that I often needed to take a breath after a long encounter is a testament to how exciting combat can be.”
ElderGeek

“Neon XSZ was great fun when we played it last fall, and its ongoing development has only improved the game flow, structure, and balance.”
Hardcore Gamer

“Fast-paced, freeform modular combat and exploration rewards players with an incredible amount of customization. You make your own adventure-- It's Sid Meier's Pirates! in cyberspace.”

Про цю гру

When Flynn was first sucked into the totally unfamiliar alien landscape of Tron, his world and everything he knew was turned upside down. Nothing made sense for him anymore. The rules of life had changed. He had no idea how anything worked, how he would survive, or how he might escape. Welcome to our take on that concept, NeonXSZ.

In NeonXSZ, even normal gaming conventions and rules break down. This new world is initially bewildering, cruel and unforgiving. If you expect it to hold your hand through a tutorial and then spoon feed appropriately leveled enemies in your direction then you are in for a harsh awakening. There's nobody to tell you what to do here - nobody to guide you - and the moment you try to fall back on what you've learned while playing other games you will die.

We wanted to bring gamers a totally fresh gaming experience and move far away from traditional game mechanics. To survive, you will need to be smart, stay alert, play safe, and explore this strange new frontier in order to understand and uncover it's depth, mysteries and secrets.

You are a glitch in the system; an anomaly. If you have any hope of escape you will need to blend in and gain power. Eventually, if you have what it takes, you will journey deep into the very heart of the machine and ultimately meet the Gatekeeper. If you can defeat his challenges you might even escape, but we doubt it. Nobody has ever escaped.

What is it like to play?


The core gameplay revolves around zero-gravity, high-speed, spaceship dogfighting. Think jet fighters with the ability to turn on a dime and strafe in all directions. Dig deep enough, and you'll be able to create anything from blisteringly fast fighters to slow, heavy, tank like destroyers and specialize them with hundreds of lootable upgrades.

You might choose to dominate the open-world or progress through dozens of ever more challenging arenas. Either way, it will be a personal journey of experimentation and discovery.

FEATURES:


NeonXSZ features 100+ hours of gameplay and content set within a completely open-world populated with nearly one thousand persistent enemies from four warring factions, each with unique procedurally generated artificial intelligence and skill.

Loot, buy and sell hundreds of upgrades and gadgets and use them to specialize dozens of ships to suit your preferred play-style.

Test your strength in dozens of hand crafted Challenge Arenas with remarkably agile, physics-based, ship controls and combat.

  • Highly customizable:
    Manually tweak everything from enemy intelligence, skill, and damage through to the look of your ship and even the look of the world around you.
    Slow everything down with a game-speed slider that allows players of every skill level to enjoy the game. It's like permanent bullet time for those that need it.

  • Real Loot:
    Kill a hostile and it will drop parts for every piece of equipment it has installed, not random loot. This means that defeating a higher level enemy guarantees it will drop higher level predictable loot.

    If you see it, you can loot it, fly it, and use it.

Got the game on sale because it looked interesting. Played some other games beforeturning to this on a break. after about a 15 minute learning curve, I was hooked. I recommend playing with the controls to find something you're comfortable with. The default controls might work for someone, but not me. Don't get frustrated early on if you're not used to this type of game. Stick it out, it's worth it. The visuals are sweet, the music is good. Progress is in small increments that make it really feel like even if you're just messing around you're making progress. In short, a really good game, worth the risk.

Immediately engrossing, NeonXSZ feels like playing a more arcadey interpretation of X3: Terran Conflict on fast forward. You're plopped into the middle of a sandbox of dogfighting, and need to gradually master all six of your degrees of freedom if you want to get anywhere. Customizable difficulty, lots of upgrades and weapons and ships to play with, and fun challenge arenas and procedurally-generated tasks make for a fast-paced, player-driven experience. Nice bright high-contrast visuals pay homage to Tron and are highly customizable, and the low penalty for death (at first) encourages you to keep extending beyond what you think you're capable of, to never play things too safe.

What you'll discover as you get farther is that everything you're doing consumes your main currency, uranium. Whenever you thrust needlessly, or fire weapons without thinking, you're consuming uranium, which is also used to respawn, to purchase upgrades, and to use teleporters. You can gain it by doing tasks and killing enemies, but as you move up along the power curve, you're forced to learn more advanced, more elegant and efficient, techniques. Failing to use your power responsibly, or trying to farm things that are way below your level for too long, could put you in danger of not having enough energy to respawn, should you die. The way the game nudges you gradually toward both this realization and to increasing challenge and player skill is pretty brilliant.

This is a pretty simple game, but it's really addictive for some reason. If you just need to shoot things or want a good RPG without a super confusing plot, this is the game for you.

Edit:
Half way through this turned into a 3d maze racing game. Instead of shooting things, collecting loot and leveling up, I now have to shoot several finicky, akwardly placed switchs, race through an extremely disorienting maze in 3d space and run into a door that just slammed in my face. I don't find this mechanic fun at all. It is extremely frustrating and boaring. I had to change my rating to not recommended. I've been working on one of these stupid things for two hours now. There might be as many as 20 more of them. If I keep playing, I may reevaluate the game when I get to the end, but it's not looking good.

Hello everybody, Shaun Meyers (Kyo Akiara) here to update our original preview for NeonXSZ that we wrote back in 2012 with our full review for the game. This is but a brief summary of the full review, for the full review you can find it here: http://www.universalgamingreviews.com/neonxsz-review-and-overview/

NeonXSZ is a 6DOF game that takes place in a computer styled game that feels like Tron and Descent had a baby. The game is incredibly well designed and features over 900 total upgrades for you to discover and unlock. It's mechanics work incredibly well together and none of them feel underdeveloped or weak compared to others. It's a fine piece of craftsmanship that is well worth checking out, especially if you enjoy the 6DOF genre.

I've also recorded an updated gameplay video for the game:

I won't be able to say enough good things about this game. It's really perfect in every way.
It's like Star Wars and Tron had a baby and made the perfect fighter shooting game. This game will have my attention for many hours to come.

Pros:
+The nice thing is that there is so much content and upgrades that it will take a long time to get to the best hull there is.
+Strategy is definitely a key in this game. You can't just shoot every enemy you come across or you will get anhiliated.
+Arena's that allow you to test your skill and you choose which arena will work for you based off of your current level.
+Content, Content, Content. So much ♥♥♥♥ to do, you won't get bored.

Cons:
- Is it doesn't feature any multiplayer or Co-op, but honestly, it doesn't bother me. I can see how a game like this would really go down the shoot if it were overrun with junky kids just shooting everything that is in front of them.
- Lack of big bosses it seems. It would have been good if they incorporated stage bosses, but not a deal breaker.

Definitely worth the $19.99 price tag, but a bonus if you get it on sale.

Quake-style shooting with Descent-style movement and ARPG-style progression. Reasonably well executed and intensely satisfying for someone who appreciates those three genres. Some of the UI could stand improvement, mostly the dock menus.

When I first loaded up NeonXSZ, I wasn't really sure what was going on. I could have read the help menu in the interface but decided to wing it. I picked my ship from a choice of 3 and off I went, flying around in a station and getting my butt kicked. To be honest, I found it fun... it gave me a feeling that I hadn't felt since the NES when I played games such as Metroid and Solar Jetman which I didn't have the manuals for: exploration. Not only of a level or map, but of the game itself. It didn't take me too long to figure out what the game was about.

You are in some kind of computer system which is represented by a space station with corridors and rooms. In this space station there are 4 different factions. You have the good guys which are the operating system and anti-virus, and the bad guys which are virus and malware. Each factions files or programs are represented by ships. Some carry harmful malware around while others attack programs of the opposing factions. You are caught in the middle of this war but luckily are aligned with the OS/Antivirus to begin with.

The idea of the game is simple: fly around in your ship and kill stuff, pick up their debris which will allow you to research and eventually use the modules and hulls that they are using. Acting on this idea, at least to begin with, is difficult, as you are going to get killed by ships which are higher level than you. A lot. I didn't mind this though... I quickly understood that attacking anything that was more than a level above me would end badly, so I searched for lower level enemies. After getting my ♥♥♥ kicked for a little while, running away from higher level programs that were gunning for me, I found myself being able to fend for myself a bit more. After a while longer, I felt like I could at least give as good as I got, and a little while longer, I was king of that space station and any Virus or Malware stupid enough to cross my path was in deep trouble and I was ready to go to the next tier of space station. That's the thing: there is a massive snowball effect in this game with regards to levelling. After the initial teething problem at the beginning of any tier, you are going to be outgunned for a while, but once you begin to claw your way up, you will be dominating in no time. It's oh so addictive and a lot of fun, if a little repetitive: something which is not really too big a deal for me, I don't mind grinding.

It's a great game but if I had any complaints, it would be that every station feels the same. It's the same central hub with the same corridors and same bases; it would be nice to see some variations in layout - it also seems to me that every time you log into the game, the bases will have switched positions randomly around the map. Not a huge problem but just a bit unnecessary. I'd also like the ability to assault enemy bases and defend my allies' bases. Sure you can take over the central hub but that doesn't really do anything apart from net you some rewards. It's quite obvious to me that this game is perfect for some kind of territorial conquest side to it, but no matter, maybe someday we will see a mod or dlc for that.

In summary, if you like space simulator type games, grinding for new and shiny loot to help you find even newer shinier loot, you will love this game. I do expect that most people would get bored of the repetition before they reach the last space station though, but at least you'll get your money's worth first.

Short Summary
If you like / after any of the two below:
-6DOF
-Twitch shooter
-Grinding
-Character Progression (Ship Customization)

Most likely you'll like this game.

Long Version
This game first came on my radar when I was looking for a Descent-like game; first I found Sublevel Zero (which is another great game, and I'd suggest that one as well), then I found this. However, being afraid of Early Access, I just put this game on my followlist & wishlist. Now that the game is out of Early Access, all I can say is, it was worth the wait.

How can I define the game though... 6DOF Twitch Shooter? With ARPG-like progression (grind) system? With randomization to a certain degree? I don't know how to put it exactly. You gather data, discover new parts, new hulls, new weapons, etc... customize your ship, and keep fighting. I know this isn't much to say about this game though...

One thing that this game does differently is, allowing you to customize your own difficulty. Enemies dealing too much damage? Lower their damage, at the cost of loot though. Game is too fast for you? Lower the game speed. AI is too dumb? Increase their... processing power?

Graphics are minimalistic, but I think it serves the game well. One thing you can do is, you can change the theme of the level. Audio and music are OK, but the combat music gets repetetive very fast.

The game does nearly no hand-holding, so prepare to spend a good 5-10 minutes in the "HELP" section, which covers most of the important stuff in the game really well. If you have a question, don't hesitate to ask it on the forums as the developer of the game is very, VERY active on the forums, trying to help people out as much as he can.

Don't expect a fully randomized gameplay though. Or in other words, full procedural generation, or whatever it is called these days. All station layouts are the same, there are 5 (?) wings, 4 factions, and the station core itself. What's randomized is, the enemy / ally ship layouts, bases, base owners, etc... imagine the layour as the canvas, and it's a different painting each time you play the game, but it'll always be the same canvas, don't know how else I can explain it.

Overall, a great game, and I really suggest it to people who like 6DOF or Twitch Shooters especially. Also, if you are still reading, but are confused (probably you are as I tend to jump from topic to topic without summing the first topic up), here is a video review about 1.0 (by Tim Leftwich & Pat Rodriguez)

OH my god this game is absolutely phenomenal. This is exactly the sort of thing I have been looking for, for a very long time.

Note: For newbies, turn the gamespeed down under gameplay options to play in slow-mo. Makes it much better for people new to this sort of thing and for those who feel nauseated by the spinning.

Initially bought the game for support, as I like all things indy/grassroots, but already just a few hours into it, I'm really liking NeonXSZ. To make the transition smoother to a 3D, zero-G, FPS environment, you can slow down the gameplay and increase "autobraking" so the vehicle is more manageable. Gameplay is straightforward, shoot the other guy. Plenty of map to explore, ton of upgrades as you keep killing the red guys. Graphics are nicely done, has a Tron-esque feel to it all, and at least running on Nvidia GTX 660 (Linux), getting steady 60FPS with smooth rendering, so should run on low-end boxes well enough. The dev is/was pretty active on Reddit, so nice to see hands-on development on an early release game. Well worth your $20.

This is THE BEST Six degrees of freedom game as far as I'm concerned, I highly recomend this game
Short review
+ the Dev Paul is awesome and I go into why later byond that he is active and always helping in the forums
+ Skill based to qoute "Easy to learn, hard to master"
+ Open world , were two factions , one with each goal, battle it out for the system
+RPG Progression , of gaining loot and gaining diffrent ships and upgrades
+Factions with each AI being competely different and having unique quirks
+ TONS of customizing from the ships, to your upgrades, to the color of your ship, to the color of the game
+clean UI. that takes advantage of a mouse and keyboard
+Awesome music, totaly subjective
- (Edited)No controller support-UI is designed around Mouse and keyboard set up and due to the faster gameplay - Dev is working on joystick support, you can read the thread here (http://steamcommunity.com/app/296010/discussions/0/412448158140330429/)
- No mutiplayer
Long Ranty Review
This game is a massive time sink, I never seem to progress because I always get cought up in the smaller things
and thats a fantastic thing for a game to pull your attention away with completing the game, if you want a fast speedy ship and just do runs where you transport cargo, you can,you want to use more missles and just spam rockets at everyone as they are passing around , clam down you manic and if you want the heavist ship. and just want to fight, there is combat arenas all with unqiue meta level designs with in this massive world , were each AI is going through its day to fight for the four factions in this Tron Esk computer world, were the factions goal is either to cause harm to the system or to Repair it, each having their own way on each side, you feel like your participating in this is system's AI driven world
now to speak about Intravenous Software ,He is so helpful and active and since this game is mostly singleplayer and was in early access, He thought he was doing his job so well he was killing the active community for this game , Wow too good?,Also Shout out to fellow Player Qon if the dev isn't already on it, he is but serouisly tho if you need anything from tips, to builds, or to chat 6DOF Shooters, this is the place to be
and Just a PS, he saw the demand for Joystick support and is going to try to work on it, see what I mean?

So, I have always been a big fan of flying and shooting. It's honestly what I dream about at night. Growing up playing games like Terminal Velocity and Raptor, I loved taking down enemies and having their guts spill out with that oh-so-delicious loot.

Enter NeonXSZ:

This 6DoF gunship-shooter is absolutely fantastic on almost every level. From a gameplay perspective: the combat feels tight, responsive, and impactful. The movement is crisp, clean, and fluid. The enemies are predictable when they should be and brutal when you get in over your head. It becomes very satisfying to, like a small fish in a huge pond, creep along to your appropriate feeding grounds and lay waste, only to escape before the bigger predators lumber along to peck you off like the easy picking you are. It then becomes even more satisfying to turn around on those same buttmunches who drilled you into the ground earlier and blow them out of the sky. And even the loot itself is well designed. Does the enemy ship have that thing on it? It'll drop that thing. Every time. Well... parts of it anyway.

The UI is very daunting at first, but easily understood once you take the time to pause, by simply right-clicking I might add, and take a look around. You're a pilot, damnit! Not a surgeon! You have to orient yourself with the tools before you go off willy-nilly. This can be one of the pitfalls of the game. There is no real "tutorial" to speak of, other than just reading the manuals in the menu. Like any roguelike, you learn the hard way. By exploding. Over and over again. The various missions you take on will lead you across the entire map, leading you to sometimes choose between a quick ship, or a hearty ship.

And the world... My gods, the world. First of all, I love the aestetic. You're inside of a computer. Of course it looks like that. And since you have the ability to customize the colors, to an extent, of both your ship and the world itself, you'd be hard pressed to find a style you DON'T like. And that's to say nothing of the expansiveness of it.

Overall, I would say that NeonXSZ is a must-have for anyone who loves Diablo-style loot, tight flight mechanics, bright lights and fancy colors, or any combination of the three. And at a $20 price point, you'll be making a smart investment.

After following NeonXSZ in the later months of development, I am so happy with the outcome of the game and I want to thank the developer so much for exceeding my expectations with the game.

The only downsides of the game is that it is a little confusing at first but doesnt take long to understand how the game mechanics work. And in the little time I've played I've already come to hate the computerised voice even though it is highly helpful during a fight.

You're plopped into the middle of a sandbox of dogfighting, and need to gradually master all six of your degrees of freedom if you want to get anywhere. Customizable difficulty, lots of upgrades and weapons and ships to play with, and fun challenge arenas and procedurally-generated tasks make for a fast-paced, player-driven experience. Nice bright high-contrast visuals pay homage to Tron and are highly customizable, and the low penalty for death (at first) encourages you to keep extending beyond what you think you're capable of, to never play things too safe.

What you'll discover as you get farther is that everything you're doing consumes your main currency, uranium. Whenever you thrust needlessly, or fire weapons without thinking, you're consuming uranium, which is also used to respawn, to purchase upgrades, and to use teleporters. You can gain it by doing tasks and killing enemies, but as you move up along the power curve, you're forced to learn more advanced, more elegant and efficient, techniques. Failing to use your power responsibly, or trying to farm things that are way below your level for too long, could put you in danger of not having enough energy to respawn, should you die. The way the game nudges you gradually toward both this realization and to increasing challenge and player skill is pretty brilliant.

I won't be able to say enough good things about this game. It's really perfect in every way.
It's like Star Wars and Tron had a baby and made the perfect fighter shooting game. This game will have my attention for many hours to come.

Pros:
+The nice thing is that there is so much content and upgrades that it will take a long time to get to the best hull there is.
+Strategy is definitely a key in this game. You can't just shoot every enemy you come across or you will get anhiliated.
+Arena's that allow you to test your skill and you choose which arena will work for you based off of your current level.
+Content, Content, Content. So much ♥♥♥♥ to do, you won't get bored.

Cons:
- Is it doesn't feature any multiplayer or Co-op, but honestly, it doesn't bother me. I can see how a game like this would really go down the shoot if it were overrun with junky kids just shooting everything that is in front of them.
- Lack of big bosses it seems. It would have been good if they incorporated stage bosses, but not a deal breaker.

Definitely worth the $19.99 price tag, but a bonus if you get it on sale.

So far the only thing I would add to the reviews on this is that the game feels like a mix of descent and tron with a wonderful level up system that makes the game pace fast, but comfortable. admittedly piloting using hotas is tricky at first but once the settings are tweaked the game is amazing fun with hotas or mouse. I normally dont get into games that dont have much storyline and are more or less team deathmatch vs. the computer, however this games pace mixed with a rather competitive AI makes it a very enjoyable experience. The game difficulty can be adjusted to fit prefered play style and i must admit being a fan of tron the visuals in the game are very appealing.

Imagine that commercial where one fellow runs into another and they inadvertently mix their peanut butter and chocolate. Now imagine that commercial except it's mixing Descent and Diablo. And the two guys are kvetching and I come along in my tech 22 ship and kill them both and loot bubbles pop out of them.

Now, the game isn't perfect (no game is)--I wish there were a campaign, but it's very solidly a sandbox style experience. That said, the actual gameplay is phenomenal. The "shipfeel" is spot on; it's genuinely a ton of fun to kill dudes and take their loot bubbles. I've dropped twenty hours into it since a friend picked it up for me as a Christmas gift, and all twenty hours have been a blast.

Descent gameplay plus diablo sensibilities equals you should buy this.

NeonXSZ has captured my attention in a way that games rarely seem to manage these days. It is absolutely packed with gameplay and player choice, is highly polished and very configurable, both in terms of game settings and aesthetics (how many games do you have that let you change the theme of the game world?).

It's a mouse driven 6DOF shooter (yes, mouse and keyboard is by far the best control method) in an open world cyberspace environment, so even though you have an ultimate goal you also have a high degree of flexibility in how you achieve it. New ship components and even new ships are introduced at the perfect rate and make you feel always like you're making steady progress. Two (well, four) warring factions make things even more exciting...rarely do you fly for more than a minute without encountering some firefight taking place that you can ignore or join as you wish.

In short, NeonXSZ is a pure joy to play. It's pretty, it's fun, it's packed with options...if you asked me what typical 6DOF shooters need I couldn't tell you any more than NeonXSZ already has. It's a stunning example of the genre - a revolution, really - and an incredible achievement for the one-man dev team.

This is THE BEST Six degrees of freedom game as far as I'm concerned, I highly recomend this game
Short review
+ the Dev Paul is awesome and I go into why later byond that he is active and always helping in the forums
+ Skill based to qoute "Easy to learn, hard to master"
+ Open world , were two factions , one with each goal, battle it out for the system
+RPG Progression , of gaining loot and gaining diffrent ships and upgrades
+Factions with each AI being competely different and having unique quirks
+ TONS of customizing from the ships, to your upgrades, to the color of your ship, to the color of the game
+clean UI. that takes advantage of a mouse and keyboard
+Awesome music, totaly subjective
- (Edited)No controller support-UI is designed around Mouse and keyboard set up and due to the faster gameplay - Dev is working on joystick support, you can read the thread here (http://steamcommunity.com/app/296010/discussions/0/412448158140330429/)
- No mutiplayer
Long Ranty Review
This game is a massive time sink, I never seem to progress because I always get cought up in the smaller things
and thats a fantastic thing for a game to pull your attention away with completing the game, if you want a fast speedy ship and just do runs where you transport cargo, you can,you want to use more missles and just spam rockets at everyone as they are passing around , clam down you manic and if you want the heavist ship. and just want to fight, there is combat arenas all with unqiue meta level designs with in this massive world , were each AI is going through its day to fight for the four factions in this Tron Esk computer world, were the factions goal is either to cause harm to the system or to Repair it, each having their own way on each side, you feel like your participating in this is system's AI driven world
now to speak about Intravenous Software ,He is so helpful and active and since this game is mostly singleplayer and was in early access, He thought he was doing his job so well he was killing the active community for this game , Wow too good?,Also Shout out to fellow Player Qon if the dev isn't already on it, he is but serouisly tho if you need anything from tips, to builds, or to chat 6DOF Shooters, this is the place to be
and Just a PS, he saw the demand for Joystick support and is going to try to work on it, see what I mean?

Great Game!
If you like 6DOF-games, go and buy it.
If you like shooters, a lot of loot and customization, electronic music and futuristic artwork, go, buy it.

I'm about 7 hours in the game and did not encounter any bug. Controls are flawless and flying through the stations is smooth as butter in the sun.
Getting into the game was a great experience, because of the huge amounts of things to do. But after understanding the basic gamemechanisms and getting into the controls of your ship, NeonXSZ gives me a lot of superb gaming-entertainment.

There's still a lot to do in this game for me, but even at this point I can recommend it to you.

Edit after 15 hours in the game: Battles and Physics are epic!!!

I haven't played Decent, so I can't really compare it to that. Been more into space flight simulators like Wing Commander, Elite, and Freelancer. This is more like "spaceships in the matrix" 6DoF style. There are four factions in the game. You start out as friends with the OS and Anti-Virus factions, and enemies of Viruses and Malware. You can flip that and friend the other factions while making enemies of the former depending how you choose to play the game. Friending the Viruses and Malware is the more difficult option, though.

There are many ships in this game and plenty of ways to upgrade them. Each ship has a set amount of slots and slot types. There are many varieties of modules to slot into them making how you set your ship up quite diverse in the way it can be played. Everything is very well balanced. I don't feel I'm out of place when I'm fighting things my level. I've been playing this since it came out on early access and the progress has been quite wonderful. It's not buggy at all. At least I can't find bugs. Actually been ready to be released for months, IMHO. Simplistic, but detailed and artful with graphics. HUD set up is awesome. Easy to pick up and play. Not many single player games hold my attention, but I have enjoyed this one and will enjoy it more.

This game is fun as hell. I tested the game back when it was in closed alpha, and I'm so glad I found it again. Got it for $15 but it's definitely worth the full $20.

So, I have always been a big fan of flying and shooting. It's honestly what I dream about at night. Growing up playing games like Terminal Velocity and Raptor, I loved taking down enemies and having their guts spill out with that oh-so-delicious loot.

Enter NeonXSZ:

This 6DoF gunship-shooter is absolutely fantastic on almost every level. From a gameplay perspective: the combat feels tight, responsive, and impactful. The movement is crisp, clean, and fluid. The enemies are predictable when they should be and brutal when you get in over your head. It becomes very satisfying to, like a small fish in a huge pond, creep along to your appropriate feeding grounds and lay waste, only to escape before the bigger predators lumber along to peck you off like the easy picking you are. It then becomes even more satisfying to turn around on those same buttmunches who drilled you into the ground earlier and blow them out of the sky. And even the loot itself is well designed. Does the enemy ship have that thing on it? It'll drop that thing. Every time. Well... parts of it anyway.

The UI is very daunting at first, but easily understood once you take the time to pause, by simply right-clicking I might add, and take a look around. You're a pilot, damnit! Not a surgeon! You have to orient yourself with the tools before you go off willy-nilly. This can be one of the pitfalls of the game. There is no real "tutorial" to speak of, other than just reading the manuals in the menu. Like any roguelike, you learn the hard way. By exploding. Over and over again. The various missions you take on will lead you across the entire map, leading you to sometimes choose between a quick ship, or a hearty ship.

And the world... My gods, the world. First of all, I love the aestetic. You're inside of a computer. Of course it looks like that. And since you have the ability to customize the colors, to an extent, of both your ship and the world itself, you'd be hard pressed to find a style you DON'T like. And that's to say nothing of the expansiveness of it.

Overall, I would say that NeonXSZ is a must-have for anyone who loves Diablo-style loot, tight flight mechanics, bright lights and fancy colors, or any combination of the three. And at a $20 price point, you'll be making a smart investment.

When I first loaded up NeonXSZ, I wasn't really sure what was going on. I could have read the help menu in the interface but decided to wing it. I picked my ship from a choice of 3 and off I went, flying around in a station and getting my butt kicked. To be honest, I found it fun... it gave me a feeling that I hadn't felt since the NES when I played games such as Metroid and Solar Jetman which I didn't have the manuals for: exploration. Not only of a level or map, but of the game itself. It didn't take me too long to figure out what the game was about.

You are in some kind of computer system which is represented by a space station with corridors and rooms. In this space station there are 4 different factions. You have the good guys which are the operating system and anti-virus, and the bad guys which are virus and malware. Each factions files or programs are represented by ships. Some carry harmful malware around while others attack programs of the opposing factions. You are caught in the middle of this war but luckily are aligned with the OS/Antivirus to begin with.

The idea of the game is simple: fly around in your ship and kill stuff, pick up their debris which will allow you to research and eventually use the modules and hulls that they are using. Acting on this idea, at least to begin with, is difficult, as you are going to get killed by ships which are higher level than you. A lot. I didn't mind this though... I quickly understood that attacking anything that was more than a level above me would end badly, so I searched for lower level enemies. After getting my ♥♥♥ kicked for a little while, running away from higher level programs that were gunning for me, I found myself being able to fend for myself a bit more. After a while longer, I felt like I could at least give as good as I got, and a little while longer, I was king of that space station and any Virus or Malware stupid enough to cross my path was in deep trouble and I was ready to go to the next tier of space station. That's the thing: there is a massive snowball effect in this game with regards to levelling. After the initial teething problem at the beginning of any tier, you are going to be outgunned for a while, but once you begin to claw your way up, you will be dominating in no time. It's oh so addictive and a lot of fun, if a little repetitive: something which is not really too big a deal for me, I don't mind grinding.

It's a great game but if I had any complaints, it would be that every station feels the same. It's the same central hub with the same corridors and same bases; it would be nice to see some variations in layout - it also seems to me that every time you log into the game, the bases will have switched positions randomly around the map. Not a huge problem but just a bit unnecessary. I'd also like the ability to assault enemy bases and defend my allies' bases. Sure you can take over the central hub but that doesn't really do anything apart from net you some rewards. It's quite obvious to me that this game is perfect for some kind of territorial conquest side to it, but no matter, maybe someday we will see a mod or dlc for that.

In summary, if you like space simulator type games, grinding for new and shiny loot to help you find even newer shinier loot, you will love this game. I do expect that most people would get bored of the repetition before they reach the last space station though, but at least you'll get your money's worth first.

The best looking and most playable of the current generation of 6DOF games available. There is not one aspect of this game I would fault. Smooth, slick and very frantic in places, this is a game to invest many hours in for great enjoyment.
This was one of the very first games to appear on the, then, fledgling Greenlight and since that initial time period this marvelous game has developed in leaps and bounds to become what I consider is the pinnacle of six degrees of freedom and a stunning product well worth the asking price considering it's tiny hard drive footprint. This is a deep game with a steep learning curve and heaps of options but once you master everything, you will be playing this over and over again.
And it is not even officially released yet.
10/10 - 6DOF the way it's meant to be played.

OH my god this game is absolutely phenomenal. This is exactly the sort of thing I have been looking for, for a very long time.

Note: For newbies, turn the gamespeed down under gameplay options to play in slow-mo. Makes it much better for people new to this sort of thing and for those who feel nauseated by the spinning.

After following NeonXSZ in the later months of development, I am so happy with the outcome of the game and I want to thank the developer so much for exceeding my expectations with the game.

The only downsides of the game is that it is a little confusing at first but doesnt take long to understand how the game mechanics work. And in the little time I've played I've already come to hate the computerised voice even though it is highly helpful during a fight.
